Birthday King Dog (Polkadoodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I'm so excited to tell you that I've decided to join the Polkadoodles Design Team. I've been doing a little GDT spot for a few challenges but they asked me to continue and I just adore their images so I couldn't resist. They have a new challenge just started on their blog, I hope you'll join in, you don't have to use one of their products but it'd be lovely if you do. 


For my card I have used the following Polkadoodles products: 

Image:         Fuzzypuffs - Scruff Cupcake  

     


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

As you like it - fave animal and why - well, I hate to admit but I don't love dogs but they are so cute to create with and my mum absolutely adores dogs, she minds them for a living so whenever I make a card for her I "must" make a dog card for her. I love this dog image too.

Circular Hello Girl card (Little Miss Muffet image)

Hi crafty friends,

I have had this gorgeous Little Miss Muffet image coloured up for a while now and I'd accidentally printed her really small. I also didn't leave a huge amount of space around her when I printed her up with other images so I wasn't quite sure how to make her look bigger than she is. Building die cut circles around her and a big sentiment I think has helped and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Next time she'll be a lot bigger hehe. I only used white and black cardstock for this, I used my distress oxide inks to make the blended colours (I think I used Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick).

My company, Flourish with a Bling is closing it's doors and so for the next few weeks we're having a closing down sale and Every product is just $2 during this time. I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique beautiful products and we post worldwide.

A teen boy's Birthday card (Bugaboo image)
