Papertake Weekly - Christmas Crackers !

Good afternoon ! Sorry I am late with my Papertake Weekly post, I was busy typing it up this morning when I heard this rumble, bang and crash, went to investigate to find a car had come down the road too fast, went through my neighbours front garden wall, our garden wall and came to a stop inches from the front of my house ! You can imagine my shock ! Within a few mintues there were 5 police cars, an ambulance and fire engine ! Thankfully everyone was OK and there were no injuries and my house is still intact however I do have an open plan garden !

It could have been so much worse so I count my blessings.

Anyway, onto this week's challenge over at Papertake Weekly.

This week our theme is "Christmas Crackers"

No you don't have to make a cracker – but you can if you want as some of the DT did. No, we just want to see your Christmas faves – so Yule rules this week. If it’s festive, then it’s fine :)

As you can see, I did make a cracker !

The papers are Echo Park "Merry Christmas"

I have of course used Tilda and she has been coloured with a mix of Copics and ProMarkers.

The trees have been die cut with a Marianne Creatables die. I have added some liquid applique (love this stuff !).

The ribbon is from my stash.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing your entries. The DT's creations are amazing, real inspiration if you need it !

Thank you for your visit.


  1. OMG Jo i'm glad everyone was ok. I bet it frightened you to death. My MIL lives on a main road with speeding cars and she has had a few cars through her hedge. So i know it's not very nice.
    Your Cracker is fab, great minds and all Lol. Love the Tilda and the papers.
    Take care
    Hugs Angie x

  3. Hi Jo,
    Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "came visiting" doesn't it??? Glad everyone was OK though.
    Love your cracker and Tilda looks right at home.
