Hello everyone.
I hope you are not all wilting in this heat!! Phew it's warm today.

You all seemed to enjoy last week's challenge so thank you to all who entered and congratulations to Cathy who was our winner.

If you are melting in this heat and feeling all hot and bothered, then I hope l've got some news that will make you feel better :)

We have our first regular sponsor - its only the fabulous

Oh yes, the very wonderful Heidi will be our featured sponsor on the last week of every month and there is a $20 prize up for grabs - plus free shipping!!!. If you haven't already checked out the store, you are in for a treat cos it is a haven of fabulousness.

So it is with huge thanks to Heidi and Simon Says Stamp that we have our first featured challenge. And it is also sketch week, so here we go.

Don't forget. you can rotate, flip and generally mess about with the sketch to your hearts content :) As long as you can still see the basic shape, then that's fine.

The fabulous DT girls have once again weaved their magic with it so without further ado, this is what they've done this week.

Hi peeps.

It's Tuesday so it must be time for another Papertake Weekly challenge.

But firstly, I have to say thank you to everyone who has expressed an interest in our guest designer spot. I am in the process of sorting it out and will be in touch very soon, if I haven't already done so.

Well what have we got for you this week?

Our challenge this week is Delightful Downloads,
so all you have to do is use something on your card that has been downloaded. It could be a paper or an image or both!

We also have a fabulous sponsor this week, so I'd like to say a massive thank you to the very wonderful Sally-Ann at DigiStamp Boutique for sponsoring this challenge.

The winner will have a £5 voucher to spend in the store and there are some gorgeous things to choose from - pop over and check it out.

OK, nearly at the cards, but finally I'd like to welcome our first Guest Designers, who will be with us for 4 weeks. They are Emma and Kathrin - don't forget to check out their blogs :)xx

And here are the team's fab cards.
All the gorgeous images here are from Digi Stamp Boutique.








I think you'll agree that there is some fabulous work here.

We can't wait to see what you do with this week's challenge. The winner will be chosen by that random generator thingie (sorry for the technical term lol xx) next Monday evening so don't forget to pop back and check.

Have a great week and happy crafting xxxx

Dawnys Sketch #17

Hi there lovelies :)) x

Hope you all had a great week and have been enjoying this wonderful weather. Before we start on the new challenge, I just want to say a huge thanks to Nikki for all the hard work she's put in for our challenge. For those of you who haven't read her blog, Nikki is having a little break and will hopefully be back with us before too long xxxx

And thanks also to everyone for your support and encouragement last week. Your shoe cards were fantastic and it wasn't an easy challenge, but you did it proud. Fabulous!!

So, how do you fancy being a Guest Designer here on Papertake Weekly?

If you do, all you have to do is either leave a comment after you've submitted your card, or e-mail Dawny and we will be in touch. If you aren't on a team, please don't let that stop you cos we want to give as many people as possible a chance.

We will have 2 Guest Designers every 4 weeks starting from ........... next week!!!

So what do we have this week?
Well, it's time for a sketch ...

Don't forget that you can flip and rotate and interpret this in which ever way you choose, it's up to you. Also, the 'text' is optional, so you can add it or leave it out.

Here is what we did with it -





We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Also, just to let you know that next week we have a fab sponsor, so there is candy up for grabs :)))

Till then, have the fabbiest of weeks xxx

Shoe Time

Hi there lovelies – how nervous am I doing my first challenge!!!

But before that, I have to say a massive thank you to Steph for all her hard work and for everything she has done to make this such a fabulous challenge.
Also, I have to say thank you to the fabulous DT girlies who have all stayed on - girls you are all stars, and I could not have done this without you xxxx

OK, so what have have we got for this week?

Well our theme is Shoe Time. So anything shoe-ey goes here ie a shoe shaped card, an image, a shoe sentiment, anything at all. Just think Imelda Marcos and away you go!!

Here's what we've done ....






Unfortunately, Mr Linky is still on the blinkie so it's back to the old comments way I'm afraid until it gets sorted.
How ever did we manage without him.

Thanks peeps and we cannot wait to see your fab stuff xxx

For those without blogs -

Sent in by Sharon Mayer - thank you Sharon for sharing your lovely card with us - I bet Carly will love her card xx
