I’m late ,, sorry PTW !!

Hi all ,,, oh dear ,. I am a day late with this !! I do have a good excuse tho ,, I was in Malta cleaning, and painting a flat ,,, exhausting work, every muscle in my body is aching and my hands are covered in blisters :-)

Before moving onto the challenge we are welcoming a new teamie this week !! MARY :-) Welcome to the team !! :-)

Also ,,, the Papertake Weekly Challenge is 4 years old next week and we are having a party !! We hope you will all come and help us celebrate in style !! :-) No need to bring a bottle ,, just a card will do :-)

This week Dawny has designed a fab sketch for you ,,, I really like this one and will deff use it again :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi so one lucky entrant will win a fab $20 spree to the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store. There are only a few days left of the Stamp-tember Bonanza, lots of items at discounted prizes and daily candy to be won on the Simon Says Stamp Blog, don’t miss it !!

For my card I used this very cute You’re a Doll stamp from Unity, coloured with Copics, cut out and popped on white card. The papers are My Minds Eye from a Happy Go Lucky pack. I used an EK Success border punch and stamped all the edges with faux sewing, some of the stitches were in the same Unity set and some were Hero Arts clear stamps. The faux buttons are stamps from the set too ,,, cute eh ! I added a twine bow and Basic Grey button, the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set and I made a little rolled rose with felt :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so pop over to the PTW to see them, and also say Hi to Mary Smile
