Today's challenge is Wings - I used the Bonbon Belle CD Rom from Polkadoodles and picked a Topper and backing paper from the Blue Lagoon section. I love this CD Rom, there is so much on there it is hard to choose what to use. I printed the topper out twice and decoupaged the butterfly. I matted it onto a Spellbinders Frame die and then onto the backing paper. I distress the edges with distress ink. I printed out a sentiment and matted it onto brown cardstock and added a bow. What a pretty card!

Oh I love this image from Sassy Studio. I coloured her with my Promarkers this week and I think she turned out pretty cool! She would be great for a St. Patrick's Day or Good Luck card. I picked out some bright vibrant papers from my paper stash to match her hair and dress. I added a bow and ticket sentiment.

Hello, It's Digi Choosday and it's Anjie's Birthday today, one of my Teamies! Happy Birthday Anjie! It was my birthday yesterday and had a lovely day having Breakfast out with the Girlies and my Son, then the rest of the day crafting and watching old movies! Dinner with Hubby and Son and a bottle of wine! Ummm....
Anyway, back to business! Today's challenge was Numbers. I used the Double Sprinkles CD Rom (available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk) by first printing out the little girl in digi stamp form and coloured her using Graph'it markers. I then printed out the No. 9 from the CD Rom in A4 size and a backing paper. I cut the image down and made a 8 x 8" card using white cardstock. I matted the backing paper onto black cardstock. I then cut her out and sat her on the flower pot, added buttons for the centres of the flowers a tag, ribbon and butterflies to finish it off. I will send this card to my Step-Granddaughter this year.

It's Digi Choosday once again! How time flies! This week's challenge is Paper Piecing.
I chose to use the Pretty Sweet CD Rom available at www.polkadoodles.co.uk. I picked Maddie in digi form and coloured her with my Graph'it Pens. I then printed two backing papers from the CD and then reprinted the images on the top of the papers. It makes it easier to cut out. Then cut out the dress from the two different papers. I then used the leftovers for the backing papers matted on cream and then onto a Kraft cardstock card. I cut a scalloped oval cut a piece of lace and then 3D Maddie over the top. Added a ticket sentiment which I also coloured with my pens. How pretty this is.

Today's Card is for Creative Moment DT Challenge. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and Graph'it markers, then cut her out. I had this lovely cardstock and topper left from one of my buys from Kanban, I do miss their products. Matted them onto an A5 card, added my lady and a sentiment and bow. Very Chic!

So this week's challenge is Ovals - I used the Sundae of Seasons CD Rom for the images and papers.
available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk. I printed the flower pot, fence images out and then the backing papers. I made a Stepper Card and matted the backing paper onto the card. I then cut out a scalloped oval and plain oval using dies cut out the flower in the flower pot and adhered it to the ovals. I added a button for the center. I then cut out the smaller flower pot and fence and put that on the front step and added a ticket sentiment. There it is. I hope you like it.

Hello there, Happy April Fool day! Today's challenge for Flatfriends is "Sentiments" I chose this young lad, which is one of Emma Canning's designs, available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk or Etsy. I coloured him with my Graph'it markers and cut him out. I made an easel shaped card using kraft cardstock and matted a lovely dotty paper from my crafty stash onto it. I then added two sentiment tickets which I printed from my Dollie Daydream Goes East CD Rom. Coloured, distress and crumpled them up and popped them onto the card as a stopper.
Today's challenge is Flower Power - so I chose my Dollie Daydream Goes East CD Rom available from www.polkadoodles.co.uk. I picked this lovely backing paper, (too many to choose from) and this Panda from the Embellishment section. I printed them out, matted the backing paper onto black cardstock, cut out the Panda and put him on the front. Added a sentiment also from the CD Rom, coloured it pink with my Promarkers and a ribbon to finish it. So quick and easy to make.
