You are amazing

 Hello. Oh dear, I'm a day late again this week with my Papertake Weekly Challenge card.
This week the challenge is....

Pick a Fave
(any previous Papertake Challenges)

I have taken the easy option of 'anything goes'.

We have a fabby prize from our sponsors -
a $25 gift voucher.
For my card I used a cute little image from the Love-Bots set over at The DigiStamp Boutique.
And, guess what, there is a massive 40% off all images in the Boutique until 31st December.
So why not give yourself a little extra Christmas treat!

Rightyho then, I'll be back in a few days to share (what I hope) will make me a more organised crafter and blogger in the new year!
Merry Christmas to all my blogging buddies.

you warm my heart

Hello. I'm a bit late again with Tuesday's Papertake Weekly Challenge card. It's lucky we have a very understanding boss at Papertake!
The challenge this week is... 
Last Christmas … Card of The Year

This is our last Christmas themed challenge of 2014 and the last chance for you to show off a Christmas card or project. Anything goes as long as it’s festive.
 We have a very generous prize from our sponsor -

(£10 to spend in their gorgeous shop)
For my card I used goodies from my monthly Simon Says Stamp card kit. With the kit you get an inspiration sheet. Great for those times when Mr Mojo is nowhere to be found and you can simply case one of the cards. And that's exactly what I did!

Thank You, Thank You and Thank You!

 Hello. Call me old fashioned but I do love when a little Thank You card pops through the letter box.
And don't these super cute little characters say a Christmas Thank You perfectly!
They are brand new over at The DigiStamp Boutique.
And on special offer at the mo'!

hello friend

 It's time for another Papertake Weekly Challenge.
And this week it's...

Paper Play
(everything on your card should be made from paper!) 

We have a very generous prize from our sponsor - 
(a super cute stamp set)
For my card I used a Penny Black stamp called 'friendly surprise'. I stamped straight onto my card base and coloured with watercolour pencils. It's fine to do this as long as you don't use too much water!
The leaves and bird house are die cut and I punched out the little daisies.
For more gorgeous inspiration from my teamies and all the details on how to enter visit 

See you there!

a Jolly Hello

Hello. At this time of year I find my poor blog gets a little neglected. I guess everyone is the same. On the up side the Christmas clean - done, the tree and other little bits and bobs of decorations - done and presents - done (but not yet wrapped). So, today I figured that as I'm pretty organised I could spend a little time in the crafty room and came up with this quick and easy card.

The little Robin is this month's freebie from The DigiStamp Boutique and can be found here. All of the new releases for December are here.

Righty ho, off now to watch Strictly!

Christmas Hugs

Hello. How can you go wrong when you have penguins on your card? This is Dougie-Christmas Kiss from the DigiStamp Boutique. I coloured using Copic pens and the paper is from Doodlebug.

That's it for today, I'll be back tomorrow to share my Papertake Challenge card.
