Polkadoodles Anything Goes (week 39)

Good morning my lovelies I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.  We've had some beautiful autumn weather here in Bournemouth it really is the most beautiful time of year I just love it.

Anyway, it's Friday (woohoo!!) which means another new challenge is live over at Polkadoodles.  This week the DT were given the theme of 'matching set' but as always the challenge itself is 'anything goes' so really no reason for you not to throw your creation into the ring for the chance to win some Polkadoodles goodness.

So for my 'matching set' I decided to make a criss cross card as I haven't made one for a little while with a co-ordinating presentation box.  I decided to use some non traditional colours for a change.  I printed off the adorable 'Leaving Mince Pies' image and coloured her up to compliment the beautiful digital papers from the Winnie White Christmas download kit.  As the theme was matching set I also changed the sizing of the image to print on the inside card and the label on the box too.  I love how you can re-size your digi images to suit what you're creating.

Medium:  copics

My blog post would not be complete without showing you a close up of the adorable image.  As usual she's been coloured up with my copics and I really do love the colour scheme I can see myself using this one again.  My card would not be finished without a good dose of sparkle and it's lovely and twinkly in the light.

Copics list

Face/Body:  E000, E11, E13, R20, R81
Hair:  E31, E35, E37, E29
Clothes:  V000, V91, V95, V99/C1, C2

Okay folks that's one more Christmas card in my collection, although I still have quite a few more to go.  How are you getting on with your Christmas makes, have you made a start yet I wonder or is it just me?!?

Well time for me to get my skates on my work won't get done on it's own.  Hope you all have a great weekend folks. 

Take care,

Polkadoodles Challenge Week 37

Well hello my lovelies I hope you are all well and your week has been a good one.  My week has been spent getting back into the school routine with the kiddiewinkles and the madness that is school mornings lol.

So, I have been getting back into the crafting routine too now that my wrist is feeling easier and have my DT make to share with you for the new Polkadoodles Challenge which has gone live today.  The design team have all created to the theme of 'frame it' but the actual challenge itself is as always an 'Anything Goes' one so you see it's real easy to enter for the chance to win some fabby prizes.

For my card I decided to print off one of the fabulous sentiments in the 'Winnie Winterland' digi kit.  These are so so versatile and amazing quality.  I also printed off some papers from the same kit and decided to print one design on one side and the other on the reverse so that when I opened up my frame to reveal the sentiment behind my paper was double-sided.

Sentiment:  Winnie Winterland
Cord, flowers and pearls from stash

A closer look at the sentiment which is my main focus of my card.  This card came together so easy and don't you just love it when that happens.

Before I go I would like to enter my card into a couple of challenges:-

Creative Inspirations  -  anything goes

Winter Wonderland  -  use ribbon or twine

Crafteezee  -  anything goes

Crafty Creations  -  anything goes

The Holly and the Ivy Christmas challenge  -  anything Christmas goes

Okay folks that's all from me for today.  I'm off to do a little colouring I think but first I'm going to have to tidy up all the mess as I think there is a desk somewhere under it all lol.

Take care and happy crafting.
