Last Papertake of 2011

Hi peeps , welcome to the last Papertake of 2011.

We hope that you are all OK and that you all had a wonderful Christmas day with loads of giftage and nice stuff from the fat lad in red :)

Even though you were all busy, we had a fab response to last weeks challenge and hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in  -  your cards and projects  were wonderful  :)

So who was our winner?


Woohooo Aartje  it’s you-hoooooo :)

Well done chick and if you e-mail me,  I’ll pass your details onto  Mary & Andrea at The Ribbon Girl and hugest of thanks to them for sponsoring us xxx

And check out what Aartje  did peeps …..

I love the simplicity of this card :)

So onto this week and as it’s the last one of the month, not to mention the year, it’s time for a sketch -

… and here it is.

As always, please feel free to resize, flip and rotate the elements - as long as you can still see the sketch, it’s completely fine so fill yer boots!!!

And of course, as it’s the last challenge of the month, we are sponsored by those fabulous people across the pond.

Yes it’s the one and only

Before we get to the cards, we have some sad news because this week we have to say goodbye to our fab GDT girlies, Fiona and Rebekah.  Thank you both so much for being part of our team and it’s been a pleasure working with you both

We won’t be having a GDT for January but will start again in February :)

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

Also just to let you know that sometimes it is not possible for the Design Team to leave a comments on every entry, with these Blogger issues that some of us are having at the mo – grrrrrr what a nightmare. But please be assured that we do stop by and we are doing our best and every single eligible entry goes into the draw for our prizes even if we don’t manage to leave you a comment.

Thanks peeps for bearing with us and hugs from all of us to all of you xxx
