Hi peeps , welcome to the first Papertake challenge of 2012
We hope that you are all OK and wish you all a very Happy New Year. Here’s to a craft filled 2012 :)
Hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in last week - your cards and projects were wonderful with some fab interpretations of the old sketch :)
So who was our winner?
Woohooo Donalda it’s you chick :)
Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details onto Heidi over at Simon Says Stamp and of course, hugest of thanks to them for sponsoring us xxx
And check out what Donalda did peeps …..
I love the gorgeous purples and lilacs here :)
So onto this week and as it’s the first one of the month we have our usual
Anything Goes theme
with the option of a new theme, so it could be a new baby, a new beginning or just something new from your stash :)
But remember this is only an option and if you don’t want to use this theme then you don’t have to.
As our regulars will know, the first one of the month is sponsored by the lovely Lisa & Laila over at
And they have given us a …
… to give to one lucky winner.
Hugest of thanks sweet girlies for a fabulous prize :)xxx
So without further ado, let’s check out what the PTW crew did this week …...

Katina (new stash)
Andrea (new baby using new papers)
Mary (vintage style new baby girl)
Jill (new beginning)
Angie (new stamp and die)
Lols (new year desk calendar)
Dawny P (new baby)
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
