Just Horsin' Around

I forgot about this card I had made for Kathryn's 13th birthday, again using a Polkadoodles Cd Back to Nature, I used Pricilla the horse as the main image, all the other bits and pirces are taken from the same CD.
Just waiting for the new CD from PD.

A card for an old friend

Another Peter Rabbit card for an old (well my oldest) friend. Just finished off with some ribbon from my stash which matches the card perfectly and a few gems.
Happy St George's Day to all, iy's also my Mum's Birthday.
Looking forward to today as the New Polkadoodles CD All Around Everywhere is being launced on Create & Craft, I have it on order already even though I've only seen a sneek peek so watch this space as it won;t be too long before I am making cards with the new CD, if you want a peek before then go here

Dotty for Polkadoodles

Most of the cards I have made recently I have used elements from one of my Polkadoodles CDs, these 2 cards have elements taken from the Paper Boutique CD.
I love all the images on the CD and aim to have made at least one card from every section by the end of the year (no problem me thinks)
It is my Mum's birthday soon (23rd April) so have used the Ladybird to make a card from the girls, the other one is using the really cute rabbit, not for anyone in particular but I couldn't resist (ideal for Easter as well as birthdays). With all the fabby sentiments on the CD I could easily add an age or a name when the card is needed.
As this weeks challenge on the Polkadoodles blog is Animal Magic I will enter these, I have been so lucky so far and got a 3rd with Kathryn's birthday card and a 1st (yes really) with the animal print cake card so I am showing off my blinkie with pride and Nikky sent me some fab downloads to go with my 1st blinkie, anyway this weeks challenge is hereAnyway watch this space for the next Polkadoodle card. Also Nikky is launching another CD on 23rd April (this Friday) on C&C if you go to her website you can get a sneak peak at some of the artwork here

Cards for Robert

It was Robert's birthday yesterday, 53 years young. Here are the cards I made for him the Cricket card is from me (Obviously as it says husband lol), I have used elements from Polkadoodles Not For Girls CD the card I made for the girls to give to their Dad has elements from A My Craft Studio Cd Carousel Of Classics.
He loves them both so if he's happy so am I.

A Wedding Challenge

I haven't been to a wedding in over 15 years, and no weddings planned in the future, people just don't seem to get married anymore. This weeks challenge from Polkadoodles is a Wedding project or card. I had to of course use the Love & Cherish Cd from Polkadoodles, a stunning collection of not just weddings but everyday cards, after spending ages yesterday trying to decided what to print off I then spent ages playing around with the design, anyway I ended up making 2 cards,not in the usual tradional wedding style, I do love the black & red, I just hope it's OK to enter 2 into the challenge as I couldn't decide witch one to enter.If you want to enter this weeks challenge go here

A special card for the boy next door

Aimee's friend Brandon who lives next door to us is 13 tomorrow, it is also my husband Robert's birthday tomorrow (he's a bit more than 13 though).
Brandon like mechanical type things, at the moment his favorties are the Henry vacumn cleaner,there is a whole family of them apparently.
I used my newly aquired My Craft Studio Professional programme, it is fab!
I decided to do a penny slider card to add some movement, I think a kinetic card would appeal.
So here it is.
I will add Robert's birthday cards tomorrow, I just didn't want him to see them as they are scanned and stored on the computer he uses,

Happy Easter and more cards

A Happy Easter to you all, it's gone 5 am on Easter Sunday and the eggs are laid out for the girls, as we don't have a garden they are hidden around the house, it should keep them Happy for a while, we just have to make sure they bursh there teeth well, Aimee lost one yesterday that had been wobbly for a while.
Anyway here are my latest cards, made especially for a friend as a special request.
Don't eat too many eggs (I don't have any thankfully)
