So it's December! How this year has flown by. It's Digi Choosday again and this week we had to make a card with a little Christmas Cheer. I first chose this sentiment as I love it, it is from the Here Comes Christmas CD Rom, printed it out and framed it with a Spellbinder die. I then had this image from Emma Canning - Time for tea, I cut away the cup and placed him peeking over the sentiment. I then matted and layered it with backing paper from the Home for Christmas CD Rom on some red cardstock. There it is, hope you like it. All the CD Roms are available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk.

Hi there, it's Flatfriends Challenge time! This month it is using the above colour combination. At first I wasn't too sure, but I went through my crafty stash of cardstock and papers and found some that look quite good together. The image I chose is one of Emma's first digi images and it is the first time I have used it. I coloured here with my Graph'it marker pens and cut her out. I then made a Union Jack background out of my bits and bobs scraps. I added a sentiment and here she is. Cute eh?

It's Digi Choosday! hi there, well it is Thanksgiving this week and I will be celebrating it with my husband who is American. So bring it on! The full works, roast turkey and all its trimming.
Any way, back to my challenge this week. I chose one of Emma's digi images available at www.polkadoodles.co.uk. coloured her with my Graph'it markers added some glitter to her hair and boots, I also added some liquid accents to the turkey to give it a lovely glaze and then matted and layer her on to some backing papers from the Home for Christmas CD Rom and then added a sentiment. That is it for today x

Well, this is my first piece of Artwork! I saw this being demonstrated at a Craft Extravaganza in Wiesbaden, Germany a couple of weeks ago, and I was enthralled! I thought I could do that and I have got all the stuff she is using! So I went home and found a mount out of a picture frame and decided to embellish that! First of all, I got some corrigated card and ripped it into pieces, got my husbands gauze bandage and stuck that on, then I went into my crafty stash drawers, which I have many, and out came the flowers, leaves, heart, wooden butterfly from an old magazine and set to work. I stuck it all on randomly, (which I found quite difficult), washed it over with Gezzo and let dry overnight. Then I got out my cosmic shimmer sprays and blasted it all over, let it dry, blasted it again! Then I got out my pan pastels which just finished it off for me. Printed out a photo of me and my hubby at our Summer Ball and stuck it in the middle. Voila!! So pleased with the finish. What do you think?
Hi there once again. It is Polkadoodle's Challenge time. This week it is a card to be inspired by a Christmas Carol. I chose this lovely image from the Here Comes Christmas CD Rom available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk of carol singers. I chose two papers from the CD Rom also and cut out a scalloped circle using my Spellbinders die. I matted it onto the other typography paper and then onto burnished silver card stock. I cut out a some music notes and added the first line of the carol at the bottom as a sentiment. That is it! I love how this has turned out, don't you?

Hi there folks. What a weekend! I had a very successful Craft Fair this weekend on the Airbase I work on. All my boxes sold out on the first day so I had to make some for the next! I was certainly crafted out by Sunday evening. Anyway I made a little bit of cash so I can buy more bits for my every growing Craft Room! Anyway, enough of that, it is Digi Choosday again, so here is my Design Team entry. I chose one of Emma Canning's digi images and coloured her in with my Graph'it and Promarkers, then mounted her onto a Spellbinder die cut and then onto a easel card. I used dotty papers from my crafty stash for the background and then cut out some hexagons to make a patchwork quilt, then I faux stitched around the edges. Voila! Here is my Miss you Sew Much card.

Oh what a busy day I have had making all these boxes!! Over the last couple of weeks I have been knitting these lovely bobbly scarves in different colours for the Craft Fair I have attending this weekend. It takes me a couple of hours to make each one. Then I decided to make a co-ordinating gift boxes for a few of the scarves and see if I get some orders! Well I took one into work this week and got three orders! They are made with 3 sheets of 12x12 cardstock and papers and other embellishments as well. They take an hour to make! Phew! I think I need a cuppa now! x
