Sticks and Bones

Oh My Goodness!  I am a little late to the party but with something as good as this I don't mind. I am super busy in work and have been doing some training days away from from home and am finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel as next week is my last trip and hopefully I can start to spend more time in my craft room.

So even though I haven't had a lot of time I've been looking at all the samples from the design team and those lucky enough to have already got your copy of the download or disc and couldn't help but have a tiny play.

Of course because I couldn't wait I had to print off and make something, my lazy days with the pens and pencils will come but looking at this I''m happy with the pre-coloured images and all the extra added bits.

If you haven't seen this collection yet you have got to go over to Polkadoodles and have a look, I bet you won't be able to resist!

Love and Romance at Polkadoodles

Good morning and Happy Friday to you, it's time for a new challenge from the gang at Polkadoodles and this time it's Love and Romance. I know we always seem to be looking at something in the future but it is only a short time away to Valentines day and as it's a leap year you girlies will be able to pop the question at the end of the month, I'd love to know if you do and he says yes!

I have chosen to use the great Work and Play series for my card and this one is number 9 Love and Kisses, I have been a bit strapped for time with a lot of work commitments so I decided to use one of the shaped cards in the collection, all you do is choose the one you want, print it out and make it up which ever way suits you.
I have decoupaged the lady in the bath but you can't see it in this picture, all I added was a bit of sparkle and some ribbon the rest of the card was there ready on the two sheets I printed out, there were some bits left too!

Winter Birthday with Polkadoodles

Hello folks it's been a while since we had a new challenge over at Polkadoodles but this is week two of Winter Birthday so I'm back from the holiday break with this little number.
This is the lovely digi Oddella Twig which I coloured with Graph'it markers, I don't know about you but I think of blue tones when I think of winter cards but that's probably the thought of being blue with the cold!  Anyway I decided to use this fab aqua tone and found a perfect match with a backing paper from another of my favourites, Octavia Frosted Winter with the sentiment coming from Work and Play 6.  Don't you just love how all the collections can stand alone but mix together so well too?

The die cuts were all cut from white paper and then coloured  with the Graph'it pen then I used a Wink of Stella clear pen over the top, I used the glitter over the sentiment too but in the picture it looks a little dirty but it is quite sparkly.

I am entering this into the following challenges;
Aud Sentiments - Anything goes plus they are having a DT call
Crafting with an Attitude - Always Anything Goes
Crafty Girls Creations - Anything Goes
Through the Purple Haze - Anything Goes
