Ice Cream Flavours

Hello to everyone.
I hope that you are all well and that you are having a nice week :)
Thank you to everyone who took part in last week's challenge – there were some gorgeous cards  and some fabulous interpretations of the sketch :)

So we need a winner and this week it’s ….


Yes Caroline – KISS, it’s you!!  I read that you had a little fall so I hope that this cheers you up and that you are OK now xxx

Caroline did the most wonderful card ….

… and here it is. Aren’t those colours gorgeous (they’d be perfect for this week’s challenge lol !!!)

Well done to you and if you e-mail me your details I’ll pass your details on to Beckie at Lilac Lemon Designs , and hugest of thanks to her for her wonderful sponsorship xxx

So onto our challenge for this week and it’s a colour challenge for you.  As the weather is getting warmer, there’s nothing better than a nice ice cream. I went to buy one a few weeks ago and there were rows and rows of tubs in all sorts of flavours and I was struck by all the pretty colours.  So it inspired me for this challenge which is

Ice cream flavours

And all you have to do is base the colour theme of your card on your fave ice cream (or even a mixture of them), so think neopolitan, raspberry ripple, mint choc chip,  pistachio, rum and raisin etc etc and use those yummy colours. 

We have a brand new sponsor for you this week and I am so pleased to welcome

Its Di’s Digital Downloads and there are 5 digis of your choice up for grabs. If you haven't checked out the website, do nip and have a look peeps because there is a gorgeous free digi image there for you. And here is a little bit about Di and her company -

I trained as a graphic designer many years ago and now work in the NHS as a medical photographer, part time. I have been cardmaking since I bought my daughter a stamping kit and I got hooked showing her how to use it. That was 4 years ago. I have always drawn as a child and when I couldn’t find the stamps I wanted, decided to start drawing my own then digis became popular so I started my digi site.

I first used my children’s toys as inspiration and  opened my shop in Christmas 2009. I love making the images and seeing what other crafters do with them, that’s the lovely part

We also have some new faces here at Papertake. We are pleased to welcome our new GDT who are Beth and Jenny – we hope you enjoy your stay with us girlies :)xx 
AND we have a brand new full time team member and I am so thrilled that this lady could join us because I have drooled over her work for years . Lots of you will have done the same because she is a magazine regular,  and she is none other than  Katina Killey.  Welcome to you chick and we hope you enjoy being part of our team xxx
So without further ado, let’s see what yummy flavours the PTW chicksters have used for their cards. Some of the team have used Di’s fabulous images so I’ve put a note of  the name of the digi on which I hope will help.

Beth (GDT – Beer Bear)

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

Have a great week peeps and see you next Tuesday.

My card was Neopolitan too... not because there aren't a TON of great ice cream flavours - but it just worked out that way!
