Dads & Lads

Hi everyone hope that you are all OK and having a nice week :)

Hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in last week –  what a terrific response and as always there were lots of fantastic entries xxx Thanks  also to everyone who expressed an interest in joining our GDT. I’ll get Mr Random Thing to chose 2 of you and will  be in touch shortly with your challenges.

So who was our winner?


Well this week it’s Doreen Sng

Well done chick and if you e-mail me I’ll pass your details onto Lisa and Laila  over at  Lili Of The Valley and hugest of thanks to them for their wonderful sponsorship xxx

And check out Doreen’s card  peeps …..

… a lovely little hAnglar girlie :)

So onto this week and as it’s Father’s day on 19th we are being really predictable and our theme is

Dads & Lads

So quite simply you just need to create a card for a Dad or if you don't have a Dad then you can just do a card for a man / boy.

We are sponsored today by the one and only Katharina and her team of lovelies from Whiff of Joy

Monthly Sponsor

And this handsome chappie  is up for grabs this week

Thank you so much sweet Katharina  xxx

Before we get to the cards, we have someone special joining us this week.

We have a man :)

And not just any man,  ohhhh no!!

We are joined this week  by the one and only Calvin who is not only our very own Maddy’s boyfriend, but he is the mastermind behind  this naught rat …


Be afraid, be verrry afraid!!!

Hugest of thanks Calv for joining us this week - it’s nice to have a man about the place  :)

So without further ado, let’s check out what the PTW crew did this week …


Calvin (Special Guest)

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 that back linking is not allowed and also 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

Hugs from all of us to all of you xxx
