Hi everyone, another week flown by in the blink of an eye and it’s Friday evening again
I had a bit of an adventure this week, I went to Peterborough with my lovely pal Dawny for the Lili of the Valley show on Create and Craft. I hope you caught the show, Dawny was fab as always, she’s there for LOTV and does a great job promoting the products rather than herself as some of them just seem to do! She loves working with the products and I think that’s the main thing, it must be very hard to sell something and rave about it if you don’t particularly like it. I had a nosey round the studio, met the presenters and crew who I have to say were all very friendly and helpful …and I was allowed to stay and watch the show while it was aired which was quite exciting!
It’s the first week of the month which means the new challenge at Papertake Weekly is…
…as always there is an optional extra and this week it’s to make something that reminds you of Summer or use a Summery theme
I made these 2 cards using the new ‘Here Comes Annabel’ art pad
This first one definitely says Summer to me, she’s chilling on her lily pad with a lovely cocktail (the cocktail bit that is, can’t remember when I last sat on a lily pad!!)
A few of us used this same image for our Summer cards so great minds think alike!
These are a bit different for me, wanted to have a go at CAS. I used the Candles and Cake papers, just love these bright colours. I used a black zig fine liner to do the border, I did try stamping it with a stitch stamp but after about 6 attempts at getting it straight I gave up!
The sentiments are both wooden stamps that I’ve had for years and apart from a bit of stickles that’s it!
Hope you like them, I love to know what you all think and appreciate the feedback
Have a look at the inspiration from the Papertake DT and as always there is a great prize up for grabs for the lucky winner
That’s it from me, I bought a bottle of Pimms last week at Morrisons when it was on offer so I’m going to have a glass and sit in the garden for the last half an hour of sunshine – we have heavy storms forecast here for tomorrow so I think I’d better move some of my plants or they’ll be getting battered by the rain
Have a wonderful weekend everyone
