Take Your Pick Week

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK and that you are managing to stay warm.
And Happy Australia Day for yesterdays to all our friends down under.

A huge thank you to everybody who joined in last week –   a wonderful response and your ‘new’ cards and projects were fabulous : ).

So who is our winner?


Woohooo Coops this week it’s you chick :)

Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on to Mary and hugest thanks to The Ribbon Girl for sponsoring us xxx

And check out what Coops did ….

This is sooo gorgeous – and the 3 shapes are a square, a rectangle and an oval.
Love it chick : )

OK, onto this week and it’s time to

Take Your Pick

If you remember from November, the last challenge of every month is going to have several themes and you simply take your pick from them.
There’s a sketch, a colour theme, a product theme and a technique theme to choose from.
You can use any theme and if you want to, you can combine two or more.

So  here are this month’s  themes  -


Colour theme. 
Use any ‘warm’ colours.

Technique theme

Fancy Folds ie stepper card, diamond fold, easel card etc.

Here’s some links if you get stuck -





Product theme

Sketch #97

But don’t forget as always,  if you would prefer to use another sketch, then please feel free to use any Papertake Weekly sketch you fancy,
and just add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen when you post the link back to us :)

To make life a bit easier, we now have a sketches page at the top here so there are a fair old few to choose from.
Hopefully this will save you having to go back through the archives to find one that you like :)

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!!!

So all you have to do is simply  Take You Pick!!

I hope that this all makes sense but please feel free to email either myself or any of the PTW girls if you have any queries or questions.

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 and utterly fab

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.

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 could we ask that you restrict your number of entries please to no more than 5

Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

And  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.
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 for bearing with us and huggiest of hugs to all xx

Absolutely gorgeous DT cards. I was bussy making this card when I saw your challenge going online so I quickly finished my card took some pictures and linked up. Thank you for this really fun challenge. Veerle

Well done Coops and beautiful makes from the Dt's x

Fabulous cards by the Design Team and a really fun challenge.

Just a FYI, I read your note on the challenge and wondered if you knew that Google blogger is no longer allowing many of us to turn off word verification after the changes they made in December. Not sure if this affects everyone in the US, but most of the blogs I have checked were forced to use it and the prove your not a robot box is appearing even though it turned off in the settings box.
