At Last!!!!

Good morning crafty friends and firstly, a very happy new year.
Here’s to a wonderful 2016 and I hope that you are all safe and dry following the awful floods that have hit the UK.

Hugest apologies that I haven’t posted for quite a while - I have had real problems using Livewriter.
I’ve managed to fix it now, which is no mean feat for somebody who is as technically challenged as me!!!
So I am back in the land of the living, yayyyy.

There’s been a lot going on for sure, including losing Richard’s Mum and closing papertake after almost 8 years.
It was a very tough decision to make but my head tells me it was the right thing to do. My heart however …….. : (

Now, on the last Papertake Challenge, I said that I was going to do a giveaway and you can finds the details at the end of this post -  apols that it’s late but better late than never I guess xx

OK, enough waffle, what have  I got to share today?

Well this is one of my cards from the fantastic Tonic Studios Pampered Pets release.
Oh my, they are going to be so useful – and …..


… this is what I did.
The sweet little kitty is Kittens Whiskers and it was cut using black card from an Essential Card Pack – Monochrome.


I added some Tonic Nuvo Drops to make his eyes (Pearl White with the tiniest bit of Ebony Black on top, and  thank you Edna for this brilliant tip) and a tiny bit of  Sherbert Shimmer Nuvo Glitter Drops for his nose. The sentiment was made using Clarice Alphabet dies – upper and lower case sets, and the little heart is from Tonic Studios Expressions Sentiment Set - Live, Love, Treasure, Laugh – 368E.

The gorgeous swirl is Tonic Studios Frond Finesse.
I really like this swirl, it’s so delicate and very versatile because  you can chop it about

Other Tonic products used are Magnificent Magenta card and the paper is from Tonic Studios Simply Patterns


OK, I did say at the beginning that I had a little giveaway  so if you entered the last ever Papertake challenge and want to win a
