A Sad Farewell at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

I have soooooo NOT been looking forward to writing this post as it is to share my DT make for the very last challenge over at 

and as it's the last challenge we have the theme of 


Well with so many amazing challenges over so many amazing years thanks to our amazing leader Dawny P - it was sooooooo hard to narrow it down so I bottled it and went for something seasonal for a special person in my life and chose the theme


and here's what I did

Most of the DT will be having a prize giveaway of their own on their posts today and I too have a mystery prize to give to one commenter on my post - but you do have to enter the challenge as well in order to win the prizes. All winners will be picked by each DT member from the comments left on their own posts and announced next week on the main PTW challenge winner post.
Before I sign off I would just like to take the opportunity to thank Dawny and ALL the team at Papertake Weekly for all they have done and for giving me the chance to work alongside such a fabulous talented bunch of crafty girls - THANK YOU.

Thank you too for popping by and for all your continued support and encouragement - I really do appreciate it.
Have a fabulous day.

I made 4 of this style - super simple and it's one of my most favourite Christmas images
and another design - same colour and same image just a different size and LO
Challenges I would like to enter:

After my marathon ironing session yesterday - 7 hours in total!!!! I am thrilled to say that today is the first day in many weeks months that I don't have any specific jobs to do - so I think I will have a lazy PJ day catching up with my bloggy friends whilst watching some Christmas movies and maybe eating a few choccies :o)

Thanks for popping by.
Hope you have a fabulous day.

Mine was spent with my beautiful Grandchildren visiting a certain man in a big red suit - totally magical - just as it should be at their age.

I also have some very sad news to share - next week will be the very last challenge from

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dawny P for giving me the chance to work alongside some amazingly talented ladies - it has been a huge honour to be part of this team - a true highlight in my little crafty journey - THANK YOU xx
