We thought that we would go with a colour scheme this week, mostly inspired by the wonderful products we recieved from our sponsor. We thought the colour scheme from the download was brilliant.

So Use Lime , Pink and Chocolate. You can use it as a title if you want. Use Lime, pink and chocolate colours or if it inspires you in another way feel free to go with your mojo.

Our sponsor this week is Funky Fairys Papercrafts/ A ferw words from our sponsor

 A few years ago my love of cardmaking and scrapbooking became more or less an ‘addiction’Well all we at This Thursday can say is what an amazing prize, Funky Fairys have given us to give to the lucky winner. 5 Complete Christmas downloads

 The lucky winner will not only recieve the Chocolate Covered Christmas, and Christmas rounds downloads but will also get  The “Lets get traditional”, “Merry Christmas” and “Funky Christmas” Downloads. What an amazing prize and the lucky winner will have Christmas crafting all wrapped up . I wish we could enter LOL

Plus during the challenge week only Funky fairys have put the download shop into Sale mode. so take your chance to get some stunning paper downloads at a reduced price.

So here are our examples for this week

We were amazed at the variety and versatility of the Chocolate covered christmas from Funky Fairys papercrafts. With gift boxes, a quick brag book, Pillowboxes, word albums. decorative mats and alpha sheets and that is just the tip of the iceberg. The papers are not just for Christmas as you can see from our examples.  We loved working with them and the Christmas rounds download was also great.

We have a great guest designer this week Nancy Torsen. We love both her wonderful examples

a few words from Nancy

Here is a little bit about me. I was very happy to be asked to be a guest on “This Thursday”.I’ve worked with mixed media for years – without really knowing what I was doing. Then I got involved with theart community online and started learning new techniques and trying new things. I started by making atc’s only, back in April of this year; then gradually took on other challenges. I enjoy making and trading postcards – my latest craze! This challenge was very different for me. These colors, when used together give a more contemporary look than what I usually do. I’ve made a set of coasters – perhaps a good hostess gift for the holidays – and a shield-shaped Christmas hanger.If you would like to see more of nancys work you can visit her blog

As per we can’t wait to see all your wonderful work.

Bye for now and good luck

I always NEEDED more…more papers…more everything.To this day i still have lots of papers that i bought when i first started out, as i just cannot bring myself to cut into them, as i would be ‘gutted’ when they ran out..or if they got discontinued.I use so much paper on cards,scrapbook pages,altered name it. So this got me thinking and i decided to try and design my own papers ect for my own use.I was ‘amazed’ at the quality of the printed papers,the fact that i could print whatever i wanted and would never run out of ‘that’ favourite paper.This also meant that the money i saved on buying papers i could use to buy all the other ‘must have’s’ 🙂 Eventually after a year or so Funky Fairys Papercrafts was born (

Funky Fairys offer unique downloadable,printable papers and kits that can be used in your papercrafting. We also offer unique polymer and rubber stamps too.As our name suggests..most of our designs are ‘fresh,modern & funky’…however in the last few months ‘my own’ style has changed a bit in towards the ‘shabby chic’ look. So this crosses over into the papers i design, such as the cherish and the hope collections….amongst others.I design papers that i want to use in my own crafting,thats how my papers are ‘born’

If you have never tried printing out your own papers before and would like to give it a go, we do have the Blog of Inspiration ( which is full of free printable papers for you to download.

Iam really pleased to be sponsering such a great challenge blog 🙂

I shall even be joining in with this challenge myself 🙂

Happy crafting everyone
