Back Me Up

Good morning all! It's Monday again, last week just flew away and I'm left with a feeling that there are things I should have remembered but have forgotten totally...paying reciprocal visits to all who kindly left comments might be on the list too! It would be great if it was as easy to make a back up of everything you should remember as to back up a computer.

It's much easier and much more fun to make your own backing paper as the lovely Rachel at Cupcake Craft Challenges is asking for this week. Please check our blog for the details and the teams fantastic projects.

Simon Says Stamps are generously offering a lucky winner a $20 Gift Certificate and our monthly sponsor Polka Doodles are offering two lucky winners the Pretty Sweet CD. Fab prizes, aren't they!?!

I used a messed up piece from another card for the image; Penny Black's Berry Branch with Distress Stickles and a background made with the Distress Inks. The text says Merry Christmas in Swedish.
The backing paper is made with TH script stamp and Penny Black Paisley Pattern with Distress Inks.

I'm entering:
Simon Says Stamps: Anything Goes
Fab'n'Funky: Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge: X for Xerox, I've chosen Lacey's card below from the N is for No Nonsense challenge (the clean design, the lovely green and yellow colours in the image and a bit of stitching)


Have a fabulous week full of time for back ups!
And backing papers!!!

Warm hugs
Maarit
