Build it Up at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

I can hardly believe it's been a whole week since I last posted but I am still keeping busy with lots on the go but feeling so much more in control since my decision to step down from most of my DT's.

So today sees the start of a new challenge over at

and this week the lovely Dawny has given us the theme


I thought that would be the perfect opportunity to use one of my many neglected Hunkydory layered images - and as a bonus I also need to make a few male birthday cards for my MiL

So here's what I did:
Image: Hunkydory For Men Card Making Kit
Mat and Layers: Gold Mirror Card, Blue Card and Blue Spotty Design Paper 
Die Cut: Spellbinders Triple Tear 

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my DT buddies  - you won't be disappointed.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is:
offering 1 lucky winner:

Before I leave you I would just like to let you know that my latest Papercraft Inspirations commissions are featured in the new issue - in the shops today.
And two of my New Baby cards made front cover :o)
Other news is I have just signed up to a 6 week beginner's running and boot camp course - starting at the beginning of August - yikes!!!!!!
I am sooooooo determined to get fit, lose weight and look good for Jamie and Rowena's wedding - and I only have just over 9 weeks to do it in!!!!
Wish me luck!!!

Thanks for popping by to see me today and for all the lovely comments wishing me well on my last post - they really did mean a lot.

Have a fabulous day - enjoy the sunshine if you have any.
