Papertake Weekly - Monochrome Madness

Monochrome Madness this week on PTW with fantastic examples from the DT, why not take a wander and check out their individual blogs, they are fab. Cutest of snowmen I have used for this card given to me by the fabaroony Becky who has a fab new challenge blog starting up in the New Year. I've put a link on the sidebar so go see as they have some candy on offer!

Well another one bites the dust, only 3 more crimbo cards to do and that's me! Luckily none of them need posting as they are for family. Just as well. I am going to have to start making next years cards earlier so I am not so behind as i have been this year. For anyone who knows me i am a very organised person when it comes to Christmas, this year I have really struggled to keep up. I have definitely learned my lesson this year. Anyway sorry about the picci again, it was hard getting a picci of this one. I was trying desperately for you to see the fab black glitter card however it was looking like treacle in the piccis so this is the best of a bad bunch I'm afraid. Roll on Spring! Kirstin's baby is due 25th March 2009 can't wait to get stuck into decorating the nursery and making things for it. Anyway thanks again for stopping by, see you tomorrow!
