Mother's Day creation

Hi all,

What a beautiful day today - shame I spent most of it cleaning! I have neglected that part of my day the past few days as crafting is so much more important! hehe!

Anyway, on to this little creation.  I took part in the Polka Doodle Dandies facebook March Challenge.  We were asked to create a card or anything to make for a lady/Mother's this is what I came up with!  I used elements and papers from Polkadoodles CD 'Sundae of Seasons' and used the digi flower from the March challenge. I'm really pleased how it turned out - using the polka doodles CD's are such a pleasure, the graphic etc are gorgeous!

Anyway, hope you likey!

I've purchased the new 'Sugarplum daisy' CD from Polkadoodles and so looking forward to using it!!  Keep your eyes peeled!

All for now,

Mandy :)

Boots 'n' Brolly

Well, here I go, the first entry to my new blog!  Not that anyone is reading as I type this but I'll say Good morning anyway!!

This little card was made as a gift for my sister.  Papers & elements used were from my gorgeous Polkadoodles printable elements CD - Sundae of seasons.  I'm such a fan of Nikky Hall and her beautiful creations, such a talented lady.  You can check her shop out here. The sentiment is from Carmen at Beyond the Fringe Crafts. Carmen creates free digital images and vintage graphics - another talented lady.  Check out her blog if you haven't already done so!

I entered a couple of her challenges on the Polka doodles dandies Facebook page - that was scary as a first time for me! I had some positive and kind comments from other crafters which, I must say, was very nice!

This is a short entry for my first post, I need to get into the swing of posting here...

All for now,
