Papertake Weekly - A Sketch !

I am so sorry that I am running a day behind in my posting. I have been unbelievably busy and I don't think my feet have touched the ground ! I seem to be spending my life up and down to school as Izzy now stays until 1pm (they do like to increase the times gradually !) and all the after school activities with meetings combined as Mollie is going away soon with Brownies, are just overwhelming !

Anyway, onto this week's Papertake Weekly challenge. Our gorgeous Dawny has designed another sketch for you !

What a great sketch to use, hey ?

This challenge we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp !

We also have some news for you :-

"Before we get to the cards we have some news for you.

Firstly we have a brand new member of the Papertake Crew and she is the fabulous and one and only Mary. Yes, we now have mother and daughter on the team so Andrea has to behave herself now lol. Welcome to Papertake chick, we are so happy that you have joined us and we cannot wait to see what you make xxx

There’s also some more news … next week

so we are having a bit of a doo :) You won't want to miss it cos there are giveaways galore and we have some 4 fabulous sponsors joining us, plus giftage here and there as well. So make a date sweeties and we hope you can join us to celebrate :)"

The DP's are a mixture of Prima "Printery" and My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found - Blush" as I wanted to add a touch of pink to the card. The papers have all been machine stitched.

The image is by Tiddly Inks and is called "You and Me" and this has been coloured with Copics and ProMarkers

The sentiment I printed onto vellum.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week. The DT have made some amazing cards for your inspiration.

I am entering my card into the following challenges :
