A special Day

I made this card fro my sister and  brother-in-law’s wedding anniversary ; my sister has always loved owls.  I have used a pre-coloured digi stamp called Cake time from Polkadoodles and it is also available in a blackand white digistamp.  The backing papers and sentiment are from there too from a digital paper download .

10 eggs!

This is a card made for my daughter’s birthday, which will soon b upon us.  I have used a digistamp from a Polkadoodles Work and PLay CD and layered it up with some card and die cut shapes from Kanban. The image reminds me of my daughter collecting our eggs from our hens.The patterned card blank is from  Crafter’s Companion’s Faiytopia range and have drawn faux stitching as a border.

Thank you for following my blog this year and allowing me to share my creations.  I am planning to make fewer cards next year and concentrate on more sewing projects…well, we’ll see.

I have made approxiamately 200 cards this year and you can imagine how tricky it is to narrow it down to a few favourites, but here goes!  (In no particular order.)

I think this is my favourite.  The papers were from a Tattered Lace magazine and the digi is by Jellypark.

But this is a very close second!  Made entirely using a Polkadoodles CD, I did a lot of fussy cutting to make this circular card.

We DT members at Creative Fingers like to create a card from time to time, to thank our fabulous sponsors.  Without our sponsors, we would not be able to run the challenges and offer such great prizes.  This image is drawn by Nikky of Polkadoodles and is available on a Tatty Twinkle CD-rom from My Craft Studio.

Christmas round

One of the things I love most about Polkadoodles’ artwork is the little toadstool embellishments that are found in almost every kit.  So, I just had to include them in this card.  This card took a lot of fussy cutting, which I normally avoid(!) but , it was worth it .
