Woohooo AJ  this week it’s you chick :)
Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on to Heidi and hugest thanks to Simon Says Stamp  for sponsoring us xxx

And check out what AJ did …



She went with the cool colours theme, the product theme ie she used Kraft card and she also used…

 

… sketch #98 as well.
Fantastic card and well done for using more than one theme : )



Now onto this week and as it’s the first one of the month we have our usual
Anything Goes
theme and this month’s optional extra is to use hand made flowers – you can use dies or punches for these.
But remember this is only an option and if you don’t want to use this theme then you don’t have to.
The main thing is to let loose your creative stuff and make a card that pleases YOU :)


As our regulars will know, the first challenge of the month is sponsored by the lovely Lisa & Laila over at

And they have given us a …
 

… to give to one lucky winner.
And with so much to choose from in the shop, one lucky girlie is going to be spoiled for choice!!!!
Hugest of thanks for a fabulous prize :)xxx

And now without further ado, here’s what our fab girlies have done this week -
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
    
 
 
 
 

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget to check out our individual blogs and see what else we have been up to.

As always, could we ask a huge favour peeps please.
Could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification and enabling comment moderation instead please pretty please xxxx.
It’s ever so easy to do – see our sidebar – and you won’t get spam comments as you can easily reject the comments that you don't want to appear.

Can we remind you nicely that’s it’s fine to combine challenges but please, no back linking.
We hope you understand that it’s only fair to those who make a new card xxx

And could we ask that you restrict your number of entries please to no more than 5
Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

And  just to let you know that sometimes it is not possible for the Design Team to leave a comments on every entry, with these Blogger issues that some of us are having at the mo.
But please be assured that we do stop by and we are doing our best and every single eligible entry goes into the draw for our prizes even if we don’t manage to leave you a comment.

Thanks for bearing with us and huggiest of hugs to all xx

Take Your Pick

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK and that you are having a great week.

A huge thank you to everybody who joined in last week –   a wonderful response and your ‘new’ cards and projects were fabulous : ).


So who is our winner?

Woohooo Anet this week it’s you chick :)

Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on to Mary and hugest thanks to The Ribbon Girl for sponsoring us xxx


And check out what Anet  did ….

This is sooo gorgeous.
And Anet went for a line straight through the centre  and used die cuts, free and glitter.



OK, onto this week and it’s time for another

Take Your Pick

In case you aren't familiar with how it works,  the last challenge of every month is going to have several themes and you simply take your pick from them.
There’s a sketch, a colour theme, a product theme and a technique theme to choose from.
You can use any theme and if you want to, you can combine two or more.



So  here are this month’s  themes  -


Colour theme.

Use any ‘cool’ colours.





Technique theme

Masking  - make a scene using 2 or more images



Product theme
Use Kraft card




Sketch

Sketch #98


But don’t forget as always,  if you would prefer to use another sketch, then please feel free to use any Papertake Weekly sketch you fancy,
and just add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen when you post the link back to us :)

To make life a bit easier, we now have a sketches page at the top here so there are a fair old few to choose from.
Hopefully this will save you having to go back through the archives to find one that you like :)

As always, please feel free to resize, flip and rotate the elements - as long as you can still see the sketch, it’s completely fine so fill yer boots!!!

So all you have to do is simply  Take You Pick!!
I hope that this all makes sense but please feel free to email either myself or any of the PTW girls if you have any queries or questions.


As it’s the last challenge of the month, we are sponsored by those fabulous people across the pond.

Yes it’s the one and only and utterly fab
