Good morning everyone, hope you are all well?
I had a busy week, as most of you will know now we closed the Lili of the Valley shop at the weekend. We are moving premises shortly and unfortunately won’t have room for a shop at the moment. We have a lot of work in the next couple of months getting packed up but there are exciting things ahead! There were some fantastic bargains to be had on Saturday which was our last day so if you got some of the half price dies lucky you!!
Joe has gone off to India for 5 weeks. They are staying with his friends Father over there so I know he’s safe and they will be doing some volunteer work at a school. Joe is a lovely boy but like all teenagers these days he’s quite lazy and selfish, not having the latest iphone is the biggest worry he has! I think it will do him good to see that not everyone has the same comfortable life, he’s very friendly and likes meeting people so i think he will enjoy it and I’m hoping that as well as having an amazing adventure he might come home having grown up a bit!
I watched the flight on Sunday on the radar, it’s absolutely fascinating and I was glued to the laptop for most of Sunday watching the journey…
Onto Papertake Weekly and as it’s the first challenge of the month we have our usual
…this month’s optional extra is to add torn edges
Remember this is only an option to add a bit of variety so if you don’t want to do that you don’t have to
The first challenge of the month is sponsored by Lili of The Valley
and we have a £10 voucher as this weeks prize
I used one of the new Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps, this cutie is called Skiddy Skates. The sentiment is from the Christmas Wishes set and papers from the ‘Twas the Night (which is out of stock at the moment but will be back next week)
You can’t really see on the picture but I did tear the edges of the papers!
The snowflakes were cut with my one of my favourite Cheery Lynn dies and it’s just finished with some gingham ribbon and gems from the Ribbon Girl – this is quite an easy card
Oh, and the oval dies are tonic
Hope you like it. You can see all the details for the challenge and some lovely inspiration from the team over on the Papertake blog
PS. Debra, when you asked about which yellows I use I wrote them down straight away intending to reply and I just found the post-it stuck to my desk with the list of colours!
I’m so sorry for ignoring your questionThe yellows I use are Copics Y17, 15, 13 and 11 or Promarkers sunflower, tulip, buttercup and ivory. I think the Tilda card you asked about was coloured with Copics
It’s Friday already and the forecast is good for us here in Yorkshire – have a lovely weekend everyone wherever you are! I’ll be back on Sunday with the Ribbon Girl challenge
