Last Christmas at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

It's a beautiful day here in Gloucestershire - the sun is shining but it's a little frosty too - perfect for a brisk walk to blow away the cobwebs and freshen up after all the running around that's we have all been doing.

So that's what I intend to do after I have shared my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and as I'm sure you are almost ready for the big day (ahem!!!) but maybe need just that one more card - then our fabulous theme this week should help 


So an opportunity to share with us your last Christmas card of the year 
(although like me you may have more than one!!!)

So here's what I did:

The Craftz Boutique have had some fabulous Christmas Advent offers and last week they had 30% off Sue Wilson dies - so with some of the money I made from my recent Christmas Craft Fayres I treated myself to an early a few early Christmas pressies - well it would have been rude not to :o)
