It's a Polkadoodles Christmas!

Hello my lovelies, I hope you are all well.  Unfortunately our little home has been hit by cold/flu germs this week so we're all feeling a little sorry for ourselves.  Normally I'd dose up and carry on but this one kinda knocked me for six a bit and I even cancelled some work which I just never do!  Anyhow, today I'm feeling a little more like myself so I'm trying to catch up with some things.

So first up on my catch up list I'm here to share my Polkadoodles DT make and it's a little bit of Polkadoodles Christmas love to share today.  I made a little set of Christmas notelets but me being me wanted something a bit different so out came the snow globe die.  Love how they turned out and by using the pre-printed images they were so quick and perfect as a little gift.

Images:  Polkadoodles pre-coloured penguin images from Winnie White Christmas

A little close up of the cute penguins.  They really are adorable.

Okay so that's all from me today folks.  I'm off to grab myself a bowl of my homemade chicken soup.

Take care,

Happy Friday my lovelies I hope you are all well and not too soggy from all this wet weather we've been having. Well I've had another busy week with my daughter's birthday, half term and Halloween along with the usual work to pay the bills, I'm just coming up for air now lol!!

So with it being Friday I am popping in to share my usual Polkadoodles Craft challenge DT make.  This week the team were asked to make Christmas cards and matching envelopes, but for all you lovely folk the challenge is as always an 'anything goes' theme.  I was in my element making a Christmas card and I was so chuffed with the end result too until I realised I forgot the matching envelope part of the brief, so if you would kindly just imagine there's one matching envelope in my piccie I'd be forever grateful lol.

Medium:  copics

A little closer look at the image.  This has to be one of my favourite Christmas images (I say that about them all lol) but it is just so sweet.

I wanted the main focal point to be the image so didn't really go for lots of different layers but rather a clean and simple look with just a little Polkadoodles christmas paper to accent it.  A few little snowflakes, stars and a couple of gems and I was happy with the finished piece.

Okay so that is all from me today folks.  All the links to the Polkadoodles goodies I have used are up under the first piccie and don't forget it's an 'anything goes' theme over on the challenge blog here and we'd love to have you join us.

Right I'm off I have some major craft desk tidying to do before I can proceed with anything else ... I'm sure I had a desk under here somewhere you know!!!

Take care and have a great weekend.
