Papertake Weekly - GDT Blog Hop!!

Big, Big WOW!! Papertake Weekly is 4 years old. Other fab challenges have come & gone, but Papertake Weekly just keeps on rolling. How lucky am I to be joining the team as GDT for this month & I joining in the 4th Anniversary blog hop.

If you missed the start, go back to the Papertake Weekly blog & start at the beginning. You should be joining me from lovely Katina's amazing blog.


I couldn't get the light right for this photo, this looks a lot brighter IRL. This little LOTV cutie is called 'Twinkling Star' & I coloured her with Distress Inks. The DP is Echo Park, Wintertime, & the snowflake was made with a Spellbinders die.


You can see better in this photo, some of the sparkle. Gold Viva glitter on the stars & Liquid Pearls on the snow. Of course I had to use the obligatory Glamour Dust on her fur trim too. What did I ever do without it?!

Getting into the spirit of the hop, as some of the other Papertake DT are offering their own candy, I thought I would add a little bit of my own. Leave me a comment & I will pick a winner for this gorgeous LOTV stamp that is looking for a loving & caring home. It may only be small, but it is perfectly formed!

*Stamp* - Together Forever


(Candy closes at midnight GMT on 10th October)

There are loads more stunning & fabulous prizes to be won on this weeks blog hop & at the Papertake weekly blog itself, where the challenge this week is,

ANYTHING GOES

What are you waiting for, it couldn't be simpler! However, before you do, you better finish the blog hop. Next stop is the wonderful,

 Go & give her some love :~)

Finally, I just want to enter this card at the challenge at Crafting Life's Pieces this month, where I used their fab sketch for my layout.

Thanks so much for looking & don't forget to enter my candy:~)
Big Hugs to one & all,
Andie xx

Andie, I love the papers you've chosen. Love how you combined them for this beautiful Xmas card. I'm not a fan of designer papers since I get too confused over which to choose and thus I spend my time looking at them instead of playing with them. Lol! I do hope I haven't been taking too much of your time reading this. Gorgeous hun!Thanks for the chance to win some LOTV stamp.
