Hello there! For my Digi Choosday Challenge this week it is "One for the Ladies". I chose this digi image from the Candy Doodles CD Rom (available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk) and coloured her in using my promarkers. The colours are more subtle than the Graph'it markers, but I think she turned out good. I cut the image out using a Spellbinders (Splendid Circles) die. I then chose a backing paper from the CD Rom and matted it onto black cardstock. I cut a ribbon strip with the black cardstock also. Adhered it to the card, used 3D sticky dots on the topper to give it some dimension. Cut out two of the butterflies from the remainder of the backing papers and adhered them to the ribbon strip using Pinflair glue. Well that is it for today, I hope you like the card. See you next week x

Hi there, for this week's Design Team Challenge for Polkadoodles, I chose to use the Picknix Collection 1 CD Rom available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk to digitally create a card.
I chose papers and embellishments from the Welcome Home Section. This sums up my memories of my Mum when I was young - She was always in the kitchen, making dinner, cakes, pies and drinking coffee and the odd sherry at Christmas! Ha Ha! So this is for you Mum xx

Hello, our challenge for today was Spring Florals - I love Spring, the warmth of the sun, the buds on the trees and the birds singing! Ummmm..... Ok back to reality, it is cold and dull in Germany today! Anyway, for this week's challenge I decided to go through all my Polkadoodle CD Roms! Umm... I have quite a lot now and love them all! I chose Candy Doodles available at www.polkadoodles.co.uk
where I picked this lovely little chap holding a bouquet of daisies and two backing papers. I printed them out, cut out my little man and then adhered the backing paper to the card blank, added him and then punched out some butterflies and flowers using my new punch. Added a little glitter and centers to the flowers using dimentional paint and of course a sentiment. There it is for today, I hope you like it x

For our challenge this month is For the Boys!! I chose this new image from Emma Canning, which is available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk., coloured it with Graph'it markers and cut it out. I had some stripey card in my crafty stash and thought it looked with the image. I distressed the edges, cut a banner and adhered them to the card blank. I then added a sentiment. Simple, but cool for a teenager!

This card was made especially for my Step-Granddaughter Mikayla for her 12th Birthday. I printed an image from the Dollie Daydream goes East CD rom. Available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk.
I then coloured her with my Graph'it markers and cut and matted the image. I used the papers and alphabet from the CD rom and took them into my Craft Artist programme to make the background.
I then die cut some cherry blossom and branches and then printed a scroll sentiment. I love how this card has turned out.

Hi there, Oh don't you just love this little bee? This digi image is available from www.qkrstampede.com.
I printed and cut him out, coloured him in with my Promarkers, added a touch of glitter to his wings and clear accents to his glasses. I used an embossing folder on kraft cardstock, tore it around the edges, distressed it with inks and went over it with metallic gold pan pastel. The other background paper was from my crafty stash that I inked the edges and matted it onto kraft cardstock. Printed out a sentiment saying "Bee my Honey" and cut that out using a hexagon punch. There it is! Love this!
