Polka Doodles challenge week 22

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is to use the colour purple.
For my card I have used a pre-coloured image, papers, embellishments and sentiment from the fabulously cute Cherryblossom Lane CD. I decided to use the butterflies and flowers to create a frame around the image. The card is for one of my friends who is having a very tough time at the moment.

Lacy Sunshine challenge #9

The challenge over at Lacy Sunshine this week is anything goes, and will be the same for all challenges in the future. This allows everyone the freedom to do whatever they like as long as it includes a hand coloured image.
I was really naughty this week and was late with my DT card, I think my head was full of my beautiful Daisy and her little bump as I was the privileged one chosen to go to the 20 week scan with her where we found out she was having a boy! Yay we haven't had a baby boy in our family since 1987!
Anyway onto my card, here it is
Isn't the image just adorable! It is called Unicorns and you can find it here. It is coloured with Graph It Markers which I buy from here. The papers are from the Papermania Blueberry Hill stack which I've had for ages! Why not come and join in the challenge as there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs

Polka Doodles challenge week 21

For this weeks challenge over at Polka Doodles I have  made something a little bit different. I came across a canvas clock that was on sale for £2 and of course as soon as I saw it I knew it had to be Polkadoodled!
All the papers and alphabet are from the fabulous Studio 12 CD-rom Picknix Collection 1. I've cut the paper into squares and cut out the alpha and inked the edges of everything with a Tim Holtz distress ink. I've used dies to cut out the flowers, the clock and some cogs. I glued everything in place then used some Dylusions ink through a mask. Then I added some white faux stitching. I then sealed it with some matte gel. It is going to be hung in our new extension behind the bar. I just love it! It's going to go great with the canvas I made a while back.

Polka Doodles challenge week 20

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is to use spring colours
for my project this week I have decorated a bag. My beautiful Niece Daisy is expecting a baby in October and I am buying and stocking up on baby toiletries for her, well everyone always buys clothes so I like to buy things I know will be useful.
The image and papers are from the fabulous Fredericka CD. If you like these images but don't like CD crafting you can now also buy them as digital downloads which you can find here or as pre-printed images in a pack. You can also buy the papers as a paper stack. You can find them all here. I have coloured the image with Graph It Markers and used chalks to create the background. The sentiment is a Studio 12 stamp which you can find here, isn't it just perfect for this! I've added some Marianne D die cuts and some lace from my stash.

Polka Doodles challenge week 19

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is Anniversary. I was asked to make a card for my mum's BF's Brother, which fit perfectly for this challenge!
For my card I have used Papers, embellishments and an image from the Love & Cherish CD. I love the papers and images on this CD, they are all so elegant. I haven't done any colouring on this which is unusual for me! I've glittered some of the embellishments and some of the petals on the roses. Everything is matted onto gold mirror card, with a few flowers and a bow added.
Go have a look at the CD collection at Polka Doodles, there are CD's for every occasion. And if you're not a CD crafter check out the Digi download section or the new paper pads with images ready for you to colour in with no printing necessary!

Cards for the twins

Here are a couple of cards I have made for my neighbours grandsons who are soon to be one!
The images are from Mo Manning and the papers are from the Pretty Tuff CD from Polka Doodles.

The images are coloured with Graph It Markers which I get from Polka Doodles. I've used a few embossing folder with Core 'dinations cardstock and sanded off. For the top card I made the rosette and also made the string embellishment. I always try to add a little something on male cards as you can't really use flowers or girly bows. I've added some faux stitching to both cards, and used Tim Holtz distress inks around the images.

Studio 12 tags

Today is my turn to post on the Polka Doodles meets Studio 12 blog. I am sharing with you some gift tags I have made.
All the papers and embellishments are from the Studio 12 CD-rom...Picknix Collection 1.
I cut the bases out of Kraft card. I cut some paper into strips and cut out all the embellishments and inked around the edges with a Tim Holtz distress ink pad. I glued the paper to the tags and added some faux stitching. I then added all the embellishments with a die cut and a bit of lace. I then punched holes into the tops and added some ribbons. I don't know whether I'll be able to part with these so may use them as book marks in some of the many books I have on the go!
