Christmas in August! Bow card


Happy Friday all! This weeks team challenge is Christmas in August 3. Use Red, Green & Blue - add 3 buttons! can you spot the 3 buttons lol! one is really hard to see in this picture as I've used it for the centre of the poinsettia flower but you can find the other two if you look closely!

I created this card using a bow card template I have in my craft stash: using the Bauble Fun Gnome clear stamp I coloured the image with pro markers, the design papers are from The Picknix collection CD embellishments are from my stash.

Its a Summer party!





Happy Friday all ! for this weeks design team Polkadoodles project I have created a shell basket to carry small treats for the little ones as we have a " Beach in Nottingham" themed city centre and they can carry there own little treats to the city centre beach themed party!

Using the team challenge " bright colours" I  took the shell image into serif and copied and welded together to make a SHELL basket and cut around the shell image on the backing paper found HERE The images  WINNIE SPECIAL MOMENTS and PARASOL ETC were added to the shell basket to decorate! ... the little ones loved this and hopefully it gives you some inspiration to make this project for yours to enjoy! ....bye for now ...

Ice cream for the sweetest of Birthdays!

For my project I decided to go CAS and create this " Sweet  Birthday  DL card" using an  Ice Cream image and taking into a graphics program to add additional layers, I decoupaged the layers and added a sentiment created in Word. The fame is a sentiment frame from the same CD .  There is lots to choose from in this collection at Polkadoodles called SUNDAE OF SEASONS CD

4 generation family clipboard: Polkadoodles blog challenge


Happy Friday everyone! ..for this weeks team challenge we was set a challenge to
1. Theme: Family/Older Generation
2- Using this : colour Palette an image which would appeal to someone in your FAMILY who is retired
3. Make: Something which has a photo keepsake included, IE a family photo, baby photo etc. i.e. a card for a grandma with a photo of you and your children included in there.
Initially I was going to create a scrap page but then I wanted the picture to be on display to enjoy so I cut a piece of MDF board to create a clipboard I covered with Gesso and added texture paste to flower doodles stencil and stamped images using stamps from Butterfly and flowers collection. I manipulated some old photos of my daughter, mum and grandma so it looked like all 4 generations was all together in the picture! This was so out of my usual comfort zone but I'm really happy with the way it turned out and a real family keepsake! Here is my take on this challenge, hope you like it!
