Get In Shape

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

Firstly, the hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in last week – WOWWZA what an awesome response and we hope you all  enjoyed celebrating with us :)

So who were our winner then?

Well we have quite a few and I’ll be adding to them as the DT send them over.
No winners' cards this week for obvious reasons.

The winner of the Lili Of The Valley gift voucher which Sharon had  is Dora

  The winner of the  Simon Says Stamp gift voucher  which Jill had is Sandy

The winner of the Dies To Die For gift voucher which Lisa had  is Julia

The winner of the Sir Stampalot PATP which Angie had is  Sue C

The winner of The Ribbon Girl gift voucher which Mary had  is Mags

Well done to all of our winners and hugest of thanks to Lisa, Laila, Heidi, Tracy, Janice, Mary & Andrea for donating these fab  prizes for us xxx

And I have to thank the wonderful DT we have here as some of them also gave away prizes and who share their gorgeous work with us every week. Girls you really are the BEST xxxx

The DT giveaway winners were Ann, Denise G, JLJ Designs, Susie Little

Before we move on to this week it is with great sadness that I have to tell you that our Marcea is sadly stepping down from the DT – work and life just get in the way sometimes and we wish her the very best and good luck for the future and hugest of thanks for being part of our team xxx

So onto this week and our challenge is

Get In Shape

So you just need to use 3 different shapes on your card and your card base can count as one – it’s as simple as that!!!

We are sponsored by the wonderful Katharina from


who is of course an ex Papertake Weekly girlie herself so we LOVE having her back.

And this is what you’ll be getting if you are our winner …


It’s the beautiful Praying Angel.

She is just gorgeous and thank you so much Katharina xxxx

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

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 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 it xxx

Hugs from all of us to all of you xxx

SAMARA said...

This is the funniest thing ever!!! I read "get into shape" and I thought. Oh yea, my vampire is walking Draculdog! That is getting into shape!!! haha. Then I opened your blog and read the instructions. What a blast, omgosh. So I think my card has about a bazillion shapes, so I'll be OK, but I more enjoy my original reason for being here! Aside from that, WOW Do I love the Design Team Cards. I could open any single one and spend alot of time on each blog. I have written in my notebook to come back here tomorrow and do so. Each time I went "ahhh" the next one was "oh my...this is SO cute, or SO original - like the JACK one, for example." Anyway, just my little piece for the evening. I hope YOU are all well too. Squeezes, Samara xox
