Sketchie Free For All …




Good morning crafty folks, what are you up to today?

We’ve had a busy week at Lili of the Valley getting all the goodies packed up and ready for Ideal World

Our Dawny is limbering up ready for her two shows on Create & Craft tomorrow so make sure you don’t miss them. It will be nice to see something different on there from Crafters Companion and HunkyDory if you ask me!

Make a note of the times, the shows are 12pm and 4pm




Onto this week’s challenge at Papertake Weekly and as it’s the last one of the month there is a new sketch






We’re having another ...


Sketchie Free For All


…which means that this sketch is just an option and you can use any Papertake Weekly sketch that takes your fancy

It MUST be one of ours and to make life a bit easier we now have a sketches page at the top of the blog with lots to choose from

Just add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen when you post your entry


As always you can resize, flip and rotate the elements - as long as you can still see the sketch it will be fine

As it’s the last challenge of the month we are sponsored by those fabulous Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will get a $20 voucher to spend in their store




I chose Sketch 65 from the list for my card this week and the image is one of the new Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps, this is Red Squirrels Christmas Tree …



PTW22 - Sketch 65







I used the Classic Christmas papers, it’s nice to do some different colours sometimes but I do love traditional red and green for Christmas cards

Here’s a list of everything else I used on my card;

Christmas Handwritten Phrases

Cheery Lynn Mini Snowflakes

EK Success border punch

Adirondack Snow Cap paint dabber

Stardust Stickles

Tulle and flatback gems from the Ribbon Girl




Hope you like it, enjoy your Wednesday everyone
