'So sorry' - Polkadoodles Challenge Wk 30

Happy Friday lovely crafty peeps.  I hope you are all well.  We're doing okay here although we're struggling with the heat a little.  Think I would cope better with it if I didn't have to work in it.  Well the kiddies have broken up for summer so all routine has gone out the window lol, but at least I have no lunch boxes to make yay!

So as it's Friday I have my usual Polkadoodles challenge make to share with you.  The DT were challenged with making something to say sorry, but as always for all you other crafty folk its an 'anything goes' theme.

Okay, so for my 'so sorry' make I decided to make a little something for someone who is feeling a little under the weather.  There are some cold/flu bugs going around so thought a little care package would be perfect.  I made mine big enough to fit in a pack of tissues and some hand sanitiser and some cold/flu sachets, but you can change this up in so many ways by adding cough sweets or lip balm etc.  I used 'Ruby Raindrop Umbrella' as my focal point.  I just thought she would be perfect for the job.  She's been coloured up with copics in a combo I don't normally use but thought it was lovely and bright and would cheer anyone up if they were feeling ploppy.

Medium: copics

A little looksie in side the package.

My usual close up of the image.  I think she is so pretty and perfect for any occasion really.

Copics used

Face/Body:  E000, E11, E13
Hair:  E31, E35, E37, E29
Clothes/Umbrella:  YG11, YG13, YG17/Y11, Y15, Y17

Okay so that's all from me today folks.  We've just bought a new tent, nothing fancy, something just large enough to fit my daughter and a few of her mates in so they can camp in the back garden lol.  Never put a tent up in my life so it should be fun, wish me luck lol!!!

Take care and happy crafting.

'Everyday holds new magic' - Polkadoodles Challenge Wk 28

Hello lovely crafty people on this rather humid of Fridays.  I do wish we'd have some rain to freshen things up a little.  They keep threatening storms but they've not materialised yet!

Well as it's Friday there is a new challenge up over on the Polkadoodles Challenge blog.  This week the DT were given the theme 'little princess' so we had to a) use any girlie image b) make something for under 16 and c) make something that could be for her bedroom.  However, for all you lovely peeps the theme is as always 'anything goes' so nice and easy to enter.

So what did I make.  Well I've been itching to colour up Serenity 'Stardust'.  I've had her for a little while and this was the perfect project.  I had my daughter in mind when deciding what to do and she loves box frames so that's what I went with and no sooner had I finished and photographed it she'd nabbed it for her room lol!!

Medium:  copics

I kept the design quite simple really as I wanted the main focus to be the beautiful image and sentiment.  It's not the best close up I must admit but I was struggling with reflections on the glass hence the slightly odd angle of the photo lol.  

My usual close up of the image and for a change I went with silver looking hair this time.  Not 100% sure on the dotty background seemed like a good idea at the time, but my daughter said she loved it so it stayed!

copics used

Face/body:  E000, E11, E13, R20
Hair:  C1, C3, C5, C7
Dress:  RV00, RV63, RV66, RV69
Moon:  Y00, Y11, Y15, Y17
Background:  B91, B93, B95, B97, B99

So okay that's all from me today folks.  Why not pop across to the Polkadoodles Challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous inspiration from my teamies.  Believe me they've really knocked it out the park this week.  Don't forget to enter whilst you're there we'd love to have you join us and then we can come take a look at all your beautiful makes and you never know you may end up being a lucky winner of one of the fab prizes.

Have a lovely weekend peeps and happy crafting.
