Some PTW news and another Christmas card ............

I was gobsmacked and chuffed to bits when I was invited to join the Papertake Weekly Design Team recently - thank you ladies - I am so looking forward to making all those projects and progressing and improving my papercrafting skills! (and of course, best of all, I can be like Andrea now and say 'oh sorry, can't help with the ironing/shopping/housework etc today  -  I've got to finish my project for PTW lol .....)

The card above is my first project and I used a LOTV stamp coloured with copics (I will try and remember to write down the numbers from now on lol).  I made a flower arrangement using leaves punched from green card with my Martha Stewart leaf and branch punches.  Following a tip from Bev, I decanted my glue into a small screw top jar and use the handle of a crochet hook, (how naughty am I?) and I feel much more in control of the sticky stuff!.  The snowflake was punched from white card and I added glue and glitter plus a stick on gem in the middle.

White 16mm Grosgrain Ribbon; 12mm White Cotton Lace;  13mm and 30mm White Mulberry Roses; White Mini Rosebuds; 15mm White/White Pretty Blossoms;  Image and Sentiment  Stamps are from LOTV
(Mulberry flowers, lace and ribbons are all from the Ribbon Girl)

The card was finished off with Stardust stickles and I can't remember where the papers were from, sorry

Hope you go and visit the Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog and I'm looking forward to seeing all of the entries from the sketch this coming week!
