Friday Polkadoodles goodness!

Hello lovelies, I hope you are managing to keep well.  We are all in good health and spirits here.  After a rather manic week it's nice to actually get to Friday and take a breath.  For the next week I have managed to arrange it so it is only necessary for me to leave the house twice which is a huge improvement on this week in these crazy times.

So on to happier things.  It's Friday so there is a new Polkadoodles challenge to join in with folks and it's so easy to play.  The theme is always 'anything goes' so a no brainer there and who wouldn't want the chance to win fabby prizes!!  The DT this week were challenged to add a number/age to your card and to include a matching tag.  Well this is what I came up with, but in hindsight not sure I like the green balloon with numbers now.  At a quick glance it sort of looks like an alien head with huge eyes, but hey can't always be happy with the outcome I suppose.

Medium:  copics
Papers:  Stampin Unicorn 'Butterfly Dreams'

I used my copics to colour in Winnie.  Isn't she sweet I love her little dress.  I've got a closer piccie of her next.

See what I mean about the blinking balloon and numbers really wished I had used different stickers on it but there you go it's done now lol.  Shame as I so love the rest of the card and my favourite bit is the matching tag really happy with how that turned out.

Anyway, that's all from my little patch.  I'm so hoping to use the next few days to catch up with crafting I hate running behind and continually having to play catch up.  Hubby's going to be painting the decking tomorrow so I'm hoping he's going to keep my daughter busy helping him so I can just hole myself up in my craft room.

Don't forget to hop across to the Polkadoodles challenge blog we'd love you to come join in with us we're a really friendly bunch!

Take care folks, happy crafting and stay safe.

A little Polkadoodles 'Good Luck'

Good morning lovelies I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend I know am.  Can't come soon enough for me this week I need some down time lol!

So as it's Friday there is a new challenge up over on the Polkadoodles Challenge blog and I have my DT card to share with you.  Now the DT were given a guide to work to of lucky charm/good luck and to use green as the main colour, but the main Polkadoodles Challenge theme is as always 'anything goes' so you can enter absolutely anything you've created and you don't even have to use a Polkadoodles image how fab is that!

Well with exam time for the kiddies getting ever closer I thought it would be a great idea to make a 'good luck with your exams' card.  I chose to colour up Winnie Graduation and went with quite a simple look.  I'm loving this style of card lately.  With a little bit of twine, a fab sentiment and a few pearls and my card was complete.

Medium:  copics

"What to Wear" in grey and pink

Hello folks, jeez it's been a few days to say the least since I last popped in.  We've had no internet and landline for what seems like forever.  At first there was a fault apparently at the box in the street which took days to get looked at and then they said no it was up the pole in our road which took more time to get looked at and then apparently the engineer was up a ladder at the side of our house as he thought it was a fault there.  On the upside at least we had no stupid sales calls/scams to listen to on the landline but boy I didn't realise how reliant I had become on the 'net'.  It was like someone had cut of one of my limbs and is Insta-withdrawal a 'thing' if so I had it big time lol!!

So now that we're back online I have a little All Dressed Up loveliness to share with you.  I have inked up 'What to Wear' and teamed her with the gorgeous LemonCraft Zulana papers again.

She's been coloured with copics in shades to compliment the pretty papers.  I kept the card fairly simple as there was enough happening with the papers I think.

A little closer look at the image.  Isn't she elegant and I love how easy these images are to colour too.

So a bit of a flying visit from me this evening.  I've still got things to prepare for work tomorrow and it's not getting any earlier.  I've popped the links to the Crafteezee goodies I've used that are in still available in the store at the end of my post.

Take care and happy crafting.
