Papertake Weekly GDT!!

Hiya Everyone!

I hope you're all having a fab Christmas?  I do love this time of year, although it can be very stressful in the run up to it it's so nice spending time with your loved ones.  And even though there were some sad moments thinking of those that are no longer with us, on the whole this year was a Happy Christmas  :o)  How nice it is now in the aftermath being able to fully chill out and make plans for the coming year too - all these plans with so little time lol!!

So, onto pressies - what did you get, what did you get??  I was completely spoiled and Hubby bought me a new super duper turbo power Hairdryer, bass boosting earphones for my iPhone and.....wait for it.....(so spoilt!).....a.....


Wow, wow and wow again - how happy was I Christmas morning when I got to have a little play!!  I absolutely love it already and only have the one cartridge so far, lol!  Although I did get on eBay last night and order a couple more, shhhhhhh - can't wait for them to arrive so I can play some more!!  :o))  Very, very happy!!

Right, enough waffle and onto my card.  And yes, I think the title gave it away but I am, for this week, a GDT member for PAPERTAKE WEEKLY , wahooooooooo!!  See I told you I was having a Happy Christmas!!  I love this challenge blog, there's such a good mix of challenges - sketches, themes, colours, recipes etc.  I always try to play along when time allows me too so to be chosen as a GDT member was an absolute honour - THANK YOU SO MUCH!!  :o)) 

This week the challenge is Be Thankful - very apt at this time of year don't you think!  And here is my Thank You card...
