Take Your Pick at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
I can't believe it's been so long since I posted anything - well 5 days is a long time for me :o)
But I have been really busy with family visits and sleepovers.

Then to top it all my laptop seems to be running really slow - I spent over six hours last Thursday running a full system scan trying to see if there were any problems and then had to run another scan in safe mode to remove some suspicious files - it still seems to be running very slow though so I might need to book it in for a 'proper healthcheck' :o( 

So today we have a new challenge over at 

and this week we have our usual end of the month theme of


with the options of using either Sketch #98 , Cool Colours, Use Kraft and/or Masking 

I took on the challenge of using all of the options and this is what I came up with:

I started be stamping the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose image and then masked that off before stamping the Penny Black Script usinbg Perfect Medium and then heaty embossed with True White EP.
Rose image coloured with Copics and background inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
Design Papers: Craftwork Cards 'Time for Tea'
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat 'Lovely Mum'
Kraft card, Adhesive Pearls and Ribbon from stash

Have a fabulous day.
