Get Funky August Challenge

The August challenge at Get Funky was to make a project that contained a pocket.
Following on from my male themed "Tool belt" card with the little hammer, screwdriver and saw I've been trying to come up with a female equivalent. I had fashioned an apron template at Christmas so i adapted it using papers from "Funky little Christmas" collection. I made a little trowel and fork from silver mirri. I stamped the flowers (from Polkadoodles fairy flutterfly acrylic stamp set) on the base card and also stamped some out on papers within "Funky little Christmas" and cut those out. I just thought that the papers were suited to all year round crafting and not just for Xmas!!!

Well what news I have, I was approached by Nikky Hall at Polkadoodles to join her template design team. I'll be working with the template cd roms and the new range of plastic templates.

I was flabbergasted to say the least, I hope that I can do you proud Nikky!!!
I'll be making samples for TV and Consumer shows - I cant wait to started.

I'm away for a lie down,

Polkadoodles week 30 "generic male and female"

I've had a busy weekend, I had a stall at the Callander Highland Games within the craft marquee. Here is my stall in all its glory!!!

It was a great weekend, I met lots of skilled crafters - jewelers, wood turners and painters. There was a few card stalls but lucky for me my stall was very different - my Polkadoodles makes stood out from the crowd and everyone loved the originality of my cards. I done quite well over the weekend, might even be lucky enough to have some repeat business.
Anyway the Polkadoodles challenge this week is generic male and female - i made an easel card using the lovely little turtle from "All around and everywhere". I just love the sentiment, it could easily apply to male or female. I couldn't resist adding a little matching glitter and glittered card candy.
When I get a chance I'll post some photos of the cards I made for the weekend.
