Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes !

I hope you all had a fabulous BH weekend. We went away again in our caravan to Wareham Forest and met up with some lovely friends of ours. We had a terrific time and really enjoyed celebrating the Royal Wedding on Friday with lots of bunting, flags, hats and a BBQ ! The kids had a great time too !!!

Here we are, back to the routine of going back to work/school etc. but it is only 24 days until the kids break up again for another week off (yes, I am counting down the days !!!).

To break us all in gently, we are having a very simple challenge over at Papertake Weekly for you. ANYTHING GOES ! with the optional extra of including "circles" in your design.

We are pleased to announce we have a new teamie too. Please welcome Andrea ! Welcome to the team Andrea - lovely to have you on board !!

We are being sponsored by Lili of the Valley with a £10 gift voucher for the lucky winner !

The DP's are Jack and Jill by Prima. In hindsight I should have layered this card more as the doily circle is completely lost on this patterned paper. Oh well, we live and learn !! The doily is an MFT Die-Namics die.

The image is of course by Lili of the Valley and has been coloured with a mix of ProMarkers and Copics.

The roses are the MFT Rolled Rose die and the centres are from my stash. I'm really pleased with how these worked out this time round. I had terrible trouble trying to roll them the last time and I thought they looked awful. This time I wound the paper round a large children's paint brush and it worked out much better - see what I mean about living and learning ?!!!!

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week. Our Guest DT's Ula and Meera have some amazing cards to show you this week as does the rest of the DT over at Papertake Weekly.
