Anything Goes…



Evening crafters, a quick hour in the attic for me tonight, I have an exciting weekend ahead so need to pack (I’ll fill you in on my next post!)

As promised I have candy for getting to 400 followers… I asked Joe to pick 2 names from all the lovely comments you left for me and the winners are Debbie and Donna

Well done ladies, send me your address to

Thank you so much for all your kind comments, your continued support means a lot and I appreciate all your feedback




Now onto this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge and as it’s the first one of the month we have our usual

Anything Goes

This month’s optional extra is to use torn paper but this is only an option and if you don’t want to use it then you don’t have to

All the details are on the papertake blog with some fab inspiration as always from the DT and a LOTV voucher up for grabs




I used one of the new Christmas stamps, I think everyone likes snowmen for their Christmas cards and you can go to town with the glitter (which I did!)


PTW 70 - Anything Goes Torn Paper


I went with the torn paper option and made a landscape. The extra little snowman is from the new Christmas Mini Images – Icons set,  this is a fabulous collection of mini stamps which you will find so useful for all your Christmas makes

Here’s everything else I used…

Festive Trimmings papers

Gifts On The Tree stamp

Handwritten Christmas Phrases

Cheery Lynn mini snowflakes die

Flatback gems


I embossed the background with a snowflake mask, it looks really effective but doesn’t show up really on the picture




Hope you like it, thanks again for taking the time to let me know what you think…   have a great weekend everyone
