Unicorn

Unicorn Jodie (3)

Morning all. We have just had a lovely week on holiday in Scarborough and now I’m starting on the massive laundry pile and catching up on chores.

Anyhoo, over at A Gem of a Challenge we are going to have a month long challenge for Breast Cancer Awareness and our theme is Pink.

I’ve been meaning to colour this Unicorn Jodie image for a while now and I thought she would look great in pink:

Ho Ho Ho

Hollybobs Santa (3)

Hello all and happy Friday! It’s time for a brand new challenge over at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and even though it’s Anything Goes the team are showing some creations using beautiful Christmas Colours.

You could choose to use just the colour scheme and make a general card or like me you could make another Christmas Card for the stash.

For my card I’ve used the fabulous Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Full Download Collection:

Hollybobs Santa (8)

I have used very traditional colours and some more practice with my Distress Ink colouring, which I’m still very new at.

Superduper Birthday

Superduper Birthday (3)_thumb

Happy Monday everyone! I’ve stopped for a quick cuppa before I pop out to do the school walk and I thought I would share the Birthday Card I made for my Mum-in-Law, now it has been given to the recipient.

I am trying to create some different card styles and as most of makes have a coloured image I thought I would put the markers away and dig out my Scan’n’Cut.

For this make I’ve used papers from the fabulous Serenity Fairy Wishes Download Bundle:

Superduper Birthday (2)_thumb[1]

The printed sentiment is made from a mix of sentiments from other Polkadoodles kits.
