First Christmas …….Card Of The Year At PTW!!

Hi peeps and  I hope that you are all OK and having a nice week :)

Hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in last week. What a FAB-U-LOUS response and there were some beauties out there for sure.

So who was our winner?

Doc8

Well this week it’s Vivi Casale 

Well done chick and if you e-mail me I’ll pass your details onto Lisa & Laila at Lili Of The Valley and hugest of thanks to them for their wonderful sponsorship xxx

And check out what Vivi did peeps …..

… it’s a lovely get well card for her friend.
Poor old Edwin!!

So onto this week and our theme is

First Christmas.

It’s our  first Christmas challenge of the year here at Papertake so it’s self explanatory really. You can make a Christmas card or you can make a First Christmas card – tis up to you and either will be fine.

I am so pleased to welcome back the loveliness that is Tracy over at Dies To Die For as our sponsor this week and there is …

….  a bit of yumminess up for grabs to spend in the shop.
There’s new stuff being added all the time so it’s well worth a trip over for a crafty mooch and hugest of thanks to Tracy for sponsoring us :)

So without further ado, let’s check out what the PTW crew did this week …...

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget if you get a sec to check out our individual blogs and see what else we have been up to.

As always, could we ask a huge favour peeps please.

Could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification and enabling comment moderation instead please pretty please xxxx. It’s ever so easy to do – see our sidebar – and you won’t get spam comments as you can easily reject the comments that you don't want to appear. And also, can we remind you nicely that’s it’s fine to combine challenges but please, no back linking. We hope you understand that it’s only fair to those who make a new card xxx

And also, can I just give you a nice gentle reminder to ask if you could make sure that you link your card and not your blog when using good old Mr Linky please my lovelies. It makes life so much easier for our DT if they don’t have to go searching for your cards.

Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

Also just to let you know that sometimes it is not possible for the Design Team to leave a comments on every entry, with these Blogger issues that some of us are having at the mo – grrrrrr what a nightmare. But please be assured that we do stop by and we are doing our best and every single eligible entry goes into the draw for our prizes even if we don’t manage to leave you a comment.

Thanks peeps for bearing with us and hugs from all of us to all of you xxx
