Anything Goes :)x

Happy New Year peeps and here’s to a great and crafty 2011 :)
I hope that you are all well and that you are having a nice week.  We have some very exciting news here at Papertake today but more of that in a sec :)
Thank you so much to everybody who joined in last week - your thank you cards were just gorgeous. And I have to say the biggest thank you to all of our Guest Designers who really did pull out all the stops – fab work girlies xxx.
So who is our winner?
Heeyyyyyyyy Mette, it’s you.
Well done chick and if you e-mail me I’ll pass your details on to Heidi and as always, hugest of thanks to her for her wonderful sponsorship xxx
And here ….
.. is Mette’s gorgeous card  :)
So onto this week and we have something fabulous to share with you.
From now on, the first challenge of every month is going to be an Anything Goes challenge so that you will have a free rein to do whatever you want and really get to create without any restrictions. Of course, it’s still a challenge so we will be having an optional extra but this is just what it says, an option only and you don't have to do it - only if you want to. 
You can combine your work with other challenges but as always, could we ask that you don’t back link  and that you submit new projects/cards only please (thanks peeps xxx)
So our theme this week is
Anything Goes
and the optional extra is to add lace to your work (you can use paper lace or fabric – whatever you prefer)
And  not only that, but the best news of all is that we have a brand new sponsor joining us every month as well.
Oh yes, our Anything Goes challenges are going to be sponsored by the one and only.

I am ohhhh so happy to tell you that Lili Of The Valley are here with us - what a great start to 2011 :).
And our winner will get a £10 voucher to spend in the Lili Of The Valley shop  -
Hugest of thanks to Lisa and Laila and also Bev and Jacqui as well xxx
On a sadder note, we are saying goodbye today to Shell and Katharina, the  GDT who have been with us these last 4 weeks. Thank you for being part of our team and for sharing your wonderful creations with us xxx As we had such a good response to our call out for the one-off special, we are going to be asking some of the lovely peeps that applied to be our GDTs for the next few months or so,  so there wont be a call out as we will be working through our list.
So without further ado, lets see what the totally awesome PTW girlies have done. I am still missing in action but I hope to be back in card making mode in the next few days.
Thanks for bearing with me peeps xxx

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.
Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx
Have a great week peeps and see you next Tuesday.
