Thank You

Good morning and a very happy 
 Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something that says Thank You. Well nothing says more that than a thank you card so here it is!
 I have used the Winne White Christmas collection to make this, actually the alphabet from the collection. I printed all the letters out onto glossy paper and fussy cut them all out. I used some simple matting and layering on this to keep it simple and be all about the thank you. I've also used the Polkadoodles Flower Flourish die, and the Polkadoodles Flower 2 die. I've actually made two of these, one for my cuzzie for having us for Christmas, and one for our friends for having us over for New Year. Here is a close up for you.
So pop over to the team blog to see what everyone else has made and of course grab today's massive discount code. And I'll see you soon.

Celebrate the New Year

Good morning everyone, I'm here with another make for the Polkadoodles blog, this time back with my own team, and we were challenged to make something to do with celebrations or New Year, so I went with both and here it is.
 I used the Frosted Winter collection to make this. I printed the papers onto card so I could distress the edges and mount them onto 3D foam. The purple card at the back is a shimmery purple which is perfect for this collection, although it doesn't show up in photos. I them fussy cut all the letters and numbers and mounted them on 3D foam as well. I then added a flower and some gems to finish it off.

New Year

Good morning and a very happy
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something for New Year, or just something new. I opted to make a New Year card and here it is.
 Once again I used the Frosted Winter collection. I think the colours on this are just perfect for this time of year, and they are my fave colours too! I lined all the letters up using My Craft Studio so I could get them all the same size and on the same line so they were level. I then printed them out and cut using my scissors. I layered up a few flowers and added some stamens and some foliage to add some extra interest. I finished it off by adding some gems in the top corner and around the numbers.

Not a card

Good morning everyone. I'm here today with a make for the Polkadoodles challenge blog. I'm actually gate crashing the other team, I hope they don't mind!
The team were challenged to make something else other than a card. Now my regular followers will be expecting me to make a tag, one crafter calls me the queen of tags lol. Well sorry, but I haven't made a tag, I've made a box! It was to hold the card I made for last weeks Digi Choosday challenge and here it is.

 I used the Frosted Winter collection again to go with last weeks card of course. I printed two of the papers onto sheets of card, and printed them at A4 so I could make a larger box. I then fussy cut the embellies and letter out and glued on the lid.

And here it is with the card in it.
And for those of you who were expecting me to make a tag, how could I disappoint you!

I'll see you next week with a make for my Polkadoodles team.

Winter Birthday

Good morning and a very happy 
Over at the Digi Choosday blog today the team were challenged to make something for a winter birthday and here is what I made.
 I have used the stunning Frosted Winter collection to make this circular easel card. I printed everything on matt paper as it suits these images so well, and makes them more vibrant. I fussy cut them all out and mounted in place with 3D foam. I printed the image 3 times and decoupaged it up.
Here is a close up of the decoupage.
Don't forget to pop over to the blog to grab today's discount code and check out my teamies makes.
I'll see you soon with another make.

Good morning everyone, it's nearly the weekend already, where does the time go, it will be Christmas before we know it! So today it's time for a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles blog, and the team were challenged to make something with lots of sparkle. Well that's nice and easy at this time of year isn't it! So here is my make.
 I used the Winnie White Christmas USB collection to make this card, along with lots and lots of green glitter card and loose glitter. Everything is mounted on to 3D foam as well to make it pop more.
I've added glitter to the snowman, the Believe, Snow, Sparkle and the Noel word art. I've also added it to the number 25 embellies. I've then added 3 sparkly green gems to finish it off as I thought that corner was bare.
 Here are the close ups trying to catch the sparkle.

So come and join us over at the blog for a chance to win some fab prizes.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
