A Nordic Christmas

Over at Polkadoodles this week we have a new challenge 'A Nordic Christmas' well the first thing I had to do was 'Google it' lol as I had no idea what it entailed and to to be fair I'm still not sure I got it right but that's the great thing about artistic licence, there is no right or wrong way and is open to interpretation. So here's my creation......

Isn't he cute? Plus he's got legs like me!! He's a digi from the Magical Winter 1 collection and I adore him I coloured him in as usual with my good old Graph'its. The backing paper, sentiment and snowflakes (glittered) are all from the brilliant Work & Play Hollybobs CD.

Feel free to leave me comments I love to read your thoughts on my creations.

Clean & Simple

It's mid challenge inspiration time over on the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog I used the Hollybobs Santa Digistamp, scaled it to the required size in my graphics programme and added my text in the opposite corner. I then coloured the cute little fella up with my Graph'it Markers (1230, 1280skin, 4115, 4155, 4170, 4135, hair, 3210, 3250, 3270, suit, 5250, 5270, 5280,, boots, 9502, 9503, 9504, 9506, sack, holly, 8240, 8260, 8270, beard & fur, 9100 & blender) the presents were coloured in with glitter pens. The topper was just matted onto fractionally larger matching card stock and there you have it a clean and simple Christmas card. I liked them so much I made 15 lol!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I'd love it if you left me a comment.....

Work & Play Samples from

Well what a fab show on today with a selection of the wonderful work and play collections from Polkadoodles. I thought I'd share a few of my design team samples with you.

I think my personal favourite is the male texter from W&P7. He's such a cool dude and reminded me of my son, Tom. 

The image is a digi and coloured with my Graph'it Markers (skin, 4115, 4155, 4170, 4145, 4135, hair, 3210, 3230, 3245, 3250, suit, 1210, 1230, 1270, shirt, blender, 9500, 9501, 9502, shoes, 3210, 3245, 3250, phone, blender, 9100). The funky backing paper is from the CD (I just inked the edges with my distress inks) as is the sentiment and the super cute mini mobile phone is a cutting file also on the disc. I cut it out on my Cameo and triple embossed it with black, Wow, embossing powder to make it all shiny. Isn't it just adorable?

Thanks for stopping by and do feel free to leave me a comment I always enjoy reading them.

Yee Ha

Happy Birthday Ginni!

Today is my 'old' (ahem) school friend's birthday she's managed the half century mark and to celebrate her husband has organised a bit of a surprise get together and there may well be some 'line dancing' involved hence my card....

The image is by Polkadoodles and is available as a digi or CD. As usual I've coloured her with my beloved Graph'it Markers. The backing paper is also from the CD and I used some gingham ribbon from my crafty stash to make the bow. The gorgeous boot, would you believe is a free cutting file. Fab eh? I really do hope Ginni has a wonderful birthday.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comments.
