Papertake Weekly GDT!!!!!

Hi Everyone. I hope you all had wonderful Christmases (is that a word!?!?) and that you were thoroughly spoilt - not just with material goods but with time spent with family and friends and those that you love - that's what I think Christmas is all about. It seemed over all too quickly - I said to Sam last night - 'can you believe that Christmas was only two days ago' and both of us felt like it was days away. You go through months of preparation and then it's all over.......oh well, I've got Sam's 10th birthday on the 30th to look forward to - and he's looking forward to picking a winner for the candy - and New Year!! What are your resolution's going to be this year?
OK - my card for today is very exciting!! Before Christmas, the lovely Dawny (aka Pink Piggy) asked for people to contact her if they were interested in taking part in a very special GDT (that's Guest Design Team for those of you who don't like talking in acronyms!!) over at the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog. As it's one of my favourite challenge blogs, I thought I'd get in touch and guess who was picked to take part - yes, lil ole me!!!! So - this week, the regular DT have got the week off and the GDTs have taken over (mwah, ha, ha). Here's my card:

I've used Magnolia's Tilda with Bee and Beehive, which I coloured with distress inks. I've mounted it onto DCWV card (which I've sanded) and Magnolia peachy dots paper. Then I've added a doily cut with my new MFT die, rolled flowers (another MFT die), flowers cut with a marianne design die, buttons, ribbon and bow - all from Papermania, a sentiment using Hobbycraft lettering and a Bee charm from Bunny Zoe's. I'm loving my new MFT dies - and I've got some others too - so expect to see a fair bit of them in the near future!!!!
You really must pop over to Papertake and check out the other GDT's projects - man, there's some talented people out there!!!! And join in with the challenge, which is 'Be Thankful', it's sponsored by 'Simon Says Stamp'. Hope you likey.......please leave me a comment, it's make me sooooooo happy when you do! TTFN.....
