Good morning sweet peeps and welcome to the very last Papertake challenge. 

It’s a very sad day for me because this has been part of my life for so many years and although my head says it’s time to go, my heart isn't quite there yet.

But life has been so hectic for me these last few months and it was getting to the point where I was meeting myself coming back and I felt that I wasn't doing anything properly. Nothing seemed to be 100% which isn’t fair, so something had to give. Some of you will know that it’s also been a bit of a trying time for us with Richard’s mum and that has taken its toll as well.

Not only that, I felt that now was the right time and hope that you understand.
Before we get to today's post there are some people I really do need to thank so please bear with me for a minute or so.

First thanks go to Steph Mayne, who started this all off. 

She asked me to join the team wayy back then and then when she had to step down, I took it over.

So thank you hunny for the chance you gave me  xxx
Secondly, I have to thank each and every one of our wonderful sponsors, past and present,  and some of them have been with us for such a long time.

It goes without saying that they have played a huge part in the success of our challenge.

We could not have done this without you and I have really appreciated your sponsorship, generosity and support xxx

And of course to every single person who has ever entered the challenge, hugest thanks to you too. 

Without you there would be no point in any of this and I know once again that some of you have been playing along with us for years xxx

Finally a massive thank you to the wonderful girls on this team, again both past and present.

We have always had a strong DT and the current one is no exception. Not only are they super talented but they are the nicest girls  ever and some have been on here with me for absolute years.

They never fail to produce fantastic  work, week in week out – so inspirational.

I don’t have enough words to say how much they all mean to me and we are and will always remain friends xxx

So for the last time I will say a huge thank you to everybody who joined us last week - your cards and projects were fabulous.

And who is our winner?
Woohooo Lisa Lynn  this week it’s you chick :)

Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details onto Mary and hugest thanks to The Ribbon Girl for sponsoring us xx

And check out what Lisa Lynn  did -

….  here. 
What a sweet card – and I hope Gregory enjoyed his card and is feeling better   : )

Now onto this week and our theme is

As it’s the last challenge of the month, we are sponsored by those fabulous people across the pond.

I have to tell you that these prizes have been put up by our own girls and hugest of thanks to them for doing that. 

And now without further ado, here’s what our fab girlies have done this week …






So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget 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.

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 could we ask that you restrict your number of entries please to no more than 5. 
Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

And  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.

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 for bearing with us and huggiest of hugs to all xx
