All about the sentiment (Polkadoodles sentiment)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Polkadoodles have a new challenge just started on their blog. Their challenges are always anything goes but they give the DT a theme and this time it is to focus on the sentiment. So I used one of the sentiments from Polkadoodles Winnie Special Moments. Before I printed it I added a pink shadow to the words. I made the background with distress oxide inks and black and white paint splatters with some added doodling for fun. 





I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Scrapbook Boutique - I was inspired by the black & white dots (top left photo), the flowers (top right photo) and the pink shade in the bottom left photo. 
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - inspired by a song - (I think You're..) Amazing by George Michael 
Word Art Wednesday -  anything goes 

Have a great day,

Pogo Stick Birthday Girl card (Tiddly Inks image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love this sweet girl from Tiddly Inks. I used some border and cloud dies from Lawn Fawn.





I am entering this card into the following challenges:

AllSorts - Happy Birthday
As you like it - flora or fauna - this was a difficult decision but I've chosen flora as I love adding flowers and scenery to my cards so I'd say I use flora more often. I've used a lot of sponsor's products on this card.

Birthday Boy with kite card (Polkadoodles image)

Hi crafty friends,

I love playing around with the digital papers, items and images that come with the Polkadoodles kits. Before printing this I added the sky background, fence, grass and green polkadot paper so the little boy had an outdoor scene behind him. To do this just use the PNG's rather than the JPEG's because PNG's don't have a white background, it is just the item itself. 



I am entering this card into the following challenges:

AllSorts -  Happy Birthday
C.R.A.F.T. - father's day/male card
Crafting with an Attitude - anything goes 
Creative Fingers -  anything goes
Happy Little Stampers -  anything goes with dies (circle dies)
Lemon Shortbread -  anything goes
Pammie's Inky Pinkies - anything goes
The Paper Shelter - digital image
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - inspired by a song - Go Fly a Kite (Bing Cosby)
Word Art Wednesday -  anything goes 

Have a great day,

Bunnies just for you Mum (DigiStamp Boutique image)

Hi crafty friends,

Oh I just had to buy this gorgeous image for Mother's Day, aren't they just the cutest bunnies ever? I coloured them in originally and the "mum" was a very dull coloured bear so I went over her with my YR Copics and now she looks much cuter. It's amazing how the colours you choose can sometimes really change how a picture looks. You can find this sweet image at DigiStamp Boutique.

Thank you with all my heart card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's another card I made for a magazine commission - I was asked to make 2 cards focusing on pearls. This was easy for me as I actually designed this pearl flourish, it's named after my daughter, Chloe. You can find it in 9 colours at Flourish with a Bling - we're closing the business shortly so everything is only $2 each, this set is 2 flourishes plus some extra pearls (see picture below). The magazine this card was in was Love Cardmaking issue 17 (Australia).
