It's time for a new theme on the Papertake Weekly Challenge !

Today is our lovely Dawny's birthday so we are having a party!


I  have an addiction to using my new Fuse Tool, so be prepared for seeing lots of shakers on here in the near future;-)
I used a new Happy Birthday Circle Die to make this one and added a few snowflake sequins to make it 'winter' ;-)

 The Fuse Tool is a brilliant gadget! gone are the days of messing about with foam adhesive, which wasn't only time consuming, but the amount of times I have had to start all over again because the foam didn't adhere properly and the contents spilled out! NEVER AGAIN !! WOO HOO!! :-D
 I love the Fuse Mat too, both are well worth adding to your Christmas Wish List ;-)

I think this is one of my fave cards for this year,,, LOVE it and I know I will be making a few more using different colours ;-)

We do have some quite sad news, after 8 year the  Papertake Weekly will be retiring :-( It has been a pleasure to work alongside such fabulous designers on the team and Dawny is such a great friend. I am sure we will stay in touch, but this is the end of an era and is very sad :-(

 Next week will be our final challenge so be sure to check back next Tuesday, we will be going out with a BANG and there will be loads of prize give-aways!!! 

We are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl so a fabulous voucher to the store is on offer this week

PLUS Dawny has a Birthday Candy Prize too!

This is so pretty, and I agree with you on the Fuse tool! I just bought one and used it for the first time on a shaker card...so much easier! Pretty colors for your card as well! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
