A Passion for Papertrey Challenge – Background Basics

Hi y’all and happy holidays to everyone.  I hope it was a good one for everyone and Santa visited with some lovliness for you.  I was a very lucky girl this year – I got a KitchenAid stand mixer.  For those who bake out there I’m sure this means something to you, for those that don’t all you need to know is that it looks AMAZING!!!!  I didn’t think it would be under the tree in my wildest dreams so I was speechless when I opened it!!!

Hubby also bought me a bread maker (I think he’s trying to tell me something!!) and lots of other gorgeous goodies.  The kids all had a fab time and it was a great family day.  Hope it was for you all too.

Right, onto the real purpose of this post!!  We have a new challenge at A Passion for Papertrey which is to make a project featuring a stamped background.  This can be either with any of the fabulous PTI background stamps or a freestyle design – whatever tickles your fancy!!  Here is my sample which is of course a Christmas card!!  I used the Background Basics: Christmas and Big and Bold Holiday Wishes sets.  A nice simple design – easy to mass produce!!

Ok, as it’s New Year’s Eve (yes, I am posting this WAY too late) and we have several friends coming over for the celebrations, I had better get my wee butt in gear and start preparing.  Think I’ll make a lemon drizzle cake with my gorgeous mixer – yes, I will use it and not just stroke it!!

Happy Hogmanay Everyone and all the very best for 2011!

Big Hugs,
Caryn xxxx

  3. Lovely card Caryn and your background is gorgeous. Lucky you to get that mixer and a breadmaker! We got a breadmaker last year but I have had to hand it over to my husband because I couldn’t stop eating the bread – with lashings of butter of course!
