Totally Papercrafts Challenge

Hello everyone, hope you all well.  Has anyone started Christmas shopping yet?  I havent, think I'm gonna leave it til the last few weeks - no time to be undecided about what to buy then!

The days are just passing before I know it and I'm losing track of the days.  I'm finished work now for the weekend and I'm soooo ready for it.  Think I'm coming down with a cold as have all the usual symptoms and feel a bit rough.  Just took a phone call from hubby who, as you know, works away from home a lot.  He's been away a week and was not expecting to be home for another fortnight!  Spoke to him tonight and he said, "I be home in twenty minutes".  WHOO HOOOO!  He's just walked in as I type.  The kids are asleep now and he didn't ring until after they'd gone to bed so they going to be really surprised in the morning when they see him - can't wait to see the look on their faces tomorrow.

Anyway, I'm running late again this week!  We have another challenge over at Totally Papercrafts with a colour theme of

Black and Purple

I had a right good play with some new die cut spellbinders, "LOTUS Border Petites" from the Pendants Borderabilities range which I got from Wendy at the Secret Crafter.

I LOVE them and am so looking forward to experimenting with them over the next few weeks.  The sentiment with border is a digi download by Raindrop Echo Designs and available exclusively from Whimsy Stamps HERE.

I'm also entering this into the following challenge......

Digital Tuesday Challenge - something not used before (Pendants Borderabilities)
Fab n Funky - Going Round in Circles (Silver Card Candy)
Stamp Something - Digital

You can check out the details for this weeks sponsor on the TPC blog.  Please check out the rather gorgeous creations by my lovely DT buddies and if you get time, please feel free to leave em some love - they really do appreciate it!!

I'm off now for a cuppa and catch up with Pete.  Don't forget to pop back tomorrow for some more challenges.
