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!


  1. Lovely card as always Bev x

  2. Thankyou so much for this beautiful card Bev! It's not insulting at all to use different images - it's such an act of kindness it couldn't possibly be taken that way ever. I truly appreciate the effort you put into making and sending me this, thanks so so much, it's fantastic and is on my mantelpiece at home. xxx
