Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes !

Good afternoon ! I hope you have enjoyed the sunshine which looks like it was another short lived spell seeing as its now chucking it down with rain ! Still, at least we might get some sleep tonight.

It's time again for another Papertake Weekly and our Anything Goes week. As usual there is an optional extra and this week its to use BUTTONS !

We also have another guest DT call so if you would like to join us then please let us know !

We are being sponsored this week by Lili of the Valley who will be giving the lucky winner a £10 gift voucher !

I can't believe that my little baby is starting school in September. I just don't know where the last 4 years has flown ! I can't bring myself to buy her uniform yet but thought I would at least get prepared and make her a card or even give this one to her best friend and make another one.

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

The DP's are My Mind's Eye, Stella Rose "Hattie" - always love this as "Hattie" is Izzy's middle name so always reminds me of her ! The alphabet paper is by October Afternoon "Report Card".

The letters are some letter tiles by K and Company I picked up ages ago at the NEC.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and don't forget to say if you fancy joining us as a Guest DT !!

Thank you for your visit and see you tomorrow with Simon Says Challenge !

  7. This is just the most adorable card I've ever seen, it almost brought me to tears, just going to have to get this one. Actually it was like reading my own thoughts, as my little Katie starts school in September and although I have bought her uniform, I did cry when I left her for her trial session! Also freakily I love the name Hattie, it was my first choice when we had Katie, but hubby is a bit conservative and couldn't be persuaded. Its now my dream to have a red setter to call Hattie instead. Anyway loving the card and like you I'm makingf one for Katie and her best friend Kayla. Hugs and good luck in Sept x


Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog and for leaving me a comment. I hope you have liked what you have seen and will visit again.
