Papertake Weekly ,,,,Get in Shape !!

Get in Shape !! oohh ,, I was just thinking today that I need to pump up the tyres on me bike and start cycling !! It has got too cold to swim and I haven’t done anything active in a couple weeks ,,, :-/ Luckily tho ,,, that can all wait for a few days/weeks ,,, cos the challenge on the Papertake Weekly is use 3 or more shapes on your cards ,,, phew ,,, I was worried there !! back to slothing ,,,, :-)

Thanks for joining in with our 4th Birthday party :-) we had LOADS of entries !! I will be back asap with a winner of my Hero Arts candy:-)

Before moving on we have some sad news ,, Marcea has decided to step down from the team, I wish you all the very best of luck in your new job Marcea xx :-)

This week we are sponsored by Whiff of Joy so a fab prize on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

I must admit ,,, I lost the plot of the challenge half way through and went off on a tangent ,,,, I was going for shaped card + 3 shapes ,, then forgot ,,, !! I think I managed to redeem it with a circular sentiment ,,, so my shapes are square, rectangle and circle :-)



I have had this gorgeous House Mouse Feeder Friends stamp for several weeks and not inked ,,, oohh shame on me !! Mudpie is just soo cute sitting on top of the seeds with his full tummy and the little birdies wondering what he is doing in there ! :-)



I coloured the image with Copics , inked the edges with Hero Arts Latte Chalk ink and added a few drops of Star Dust stickles here and there. I have seen lots of people listing the copic colours they used ,,, do I need to do that or is it OK to skip it ?? ,, The papers are Basic Grey from the Indian Summer pack and SU Chocolate Chip for layering. I used a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch and a fab wired ribbon from The Ribbon Girl The sentiment is a clear stamp from LOTV



Thanks for looking , our lovely GD’s, Annette and Andie, and the DT have made some fab cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the PTW to see them xx
