Papertake Weekly ,,, Die Cute Special ! :-)

Hi all :-) I hope all is well with everyone and hope the New Year got off to a good start for you :-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly we have a lovely challenge for you ,,,,

DIE CUTE SPECIAL ,, so use a cute image and a die cut,, simples :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Gerda at The Stamp Fairy so a fab choice of digi images on offer for one lucky entrant !

The DT were all offered images to use too and many of us took Gerda up on her lovely offer :-)




I chose this very cute Lenny ‘Get Well Soon’ image. I coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and I must admit I do like this scruffy looking Lenny, he can’t get in the shower cos he has a broken leg lol. I cut him out and popped him onto some coloured paper with pop dots. The papers are Basic Grey from the Little Black Dress pack, LOVE THESE :-) I added some sort of ribbon that looks like a bandage, not sure what this is called, it was a gift from America, and I thought it was perfect for this ! I added a safety pin and a ribbon slider from The Ribbon Girl, the sentiment was a freebie from The Stamp Fairy too and I used a Spellbinders circle die to cut it out ( I wasn’t very adventurous with the die cuts eh !! to be honest I forgot that bit of the challenge ,,, oops !)



Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely GD’s and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so please hop on over to the PTW to see them Smile
