Polkadoodles week 11 challenge

Well I've been busy over the weekend making a variety of crafty delights - I've got so many birthdays and special days coming up i thought that i would make a start. I couldn't resist the sketch challenge at Polkadoodles, I made a little gift bag from the "Paper Boutique" cd rom, following the sketch on the front of the bag. I embellished with a papers and toppers also from paper boutique and a few ribbons from my stash, oh and some brown glitter.

Polkadoodles week 10 challenge

This week at Polkadoodles was to design a card to celebrate a special birthday, anniversary or milestone. My little niece is going to be eight on her birthday and to her its going to be a special birthday so I'm entering her card - i hope it qualifies.
I used the fab "Flopsie" template from paper Boutique and papers and letters from back to nature, i embellished with some pink glitter, ribbon and some card candy i glittered to match. As Maria loves rabbits and pink i hope she likes the card!

Dunblane Craft Fair 7th March 2010

This is my niece Stephanie, my crafty assistant helping me out at the Dunblane craft fair on Sunday 7th March. Most of the cards on the day were made using the polkadoodles "Back to nature" cd rom which i love. I got loads of really good comments about my cards - i managed to sell most of them! It keeps the bank manager happy.

Get Funky Challenge march

This months Get Funky challenge was Girls, Girls, Girls - not being particularly girly myself I wasn't sure what I was going to attempt. I recently bought the Polkadoodles "Paper boutique" cd rom which has some fab card templates, I decided to use the star cake template.
I used the very pink range of papers "Friday night out" from Funkydaze cd rom. I embellished the card with lilac glitter, purple stars and glitter pen and some pale pink satin ribbon.
Hopefully its girly enough!!!
I have also just got the new papercraft factory "dreams come true" cd rom from Funky Hand - its fab!!! great decision to give us the choice of colour scheme/ font colour for the word books.
