Happy Birthday Nikky!

Yes today is the birthday of the very talented Nikky Hall of 'Polkadoodles' fame. So I'd like to take this opportunity to wish her lots of love 'n' luck.

Seriously I hope my card arrived in one piece and not in a screwed up soggy mess but if not here it is again in a 'virtual' version.

What design do you send a designer? Is it an insult to send someone else's image? I have no idea so I sent her one of her own digi's from the Candy Doodles CD Rom coloured in with alcohol markers. I cut it out inked the edges and mounted it on to a spellbinder mat. I finished the topper off with a little raffia bow.

The backing paper comes from polkadoodles Sugar Birdies CD Rom I inked the edges and stuck it on an 8x8 card plank. I then added a bit of inked lace added my topper on foam tape along with a greeting and just to add another bit of texture I added a few wooden 'inked' flowers. Hope she likes it!

Forgive Me Crafters

For I Have Sinned! It's been 3 months since my last post! So I thought it was about time I did something about it. It's not that I haven't made any cards since then, I'm just so addicted to Twitter I end up showing it on there instead. So this time I've been good & saved one!

I printed off the cute image from Polkadoodles Candy Doodles CD Rom and coloured it in with a combination of pro and flex markers. I then cut it out using a spellbinders lacey circle die and inked thru with distress ink. I printed the green backing paper from polkadoodles Sugar Plum Daisy CD Rom and layered it with a smaller square of polkadot embossed card which was inked around the edges. I then added a contrasting piece of ribbon. The greeting is again from Polkadoodles (pen & part circle 3) cut out on a smaller spellbinder lacey circle. A few paper flowers & leaves, et voila!

Worth the wait? I appreciate any comments, good or bad.
