Garden Scene for Polka Doodles

This is a quick card I've made for a friend using Craft Artist. It's for the Garden Scene challenge at Polka Doodles this week.  All the images and papers have been imported from the Sugarplum Daisy CD. The fences, watering can and pots have been decoupaged and the sentiment added afterwards.

Golfing Miracle

This is a card for my cousin's husband. He's taken up golf recently so I've used this Papermania stamp and coloured it with Promarkers. I've had the stamp set for ages and never used this image from it. The paper is from my stash and the greeting is computer generated. The golf balls are just printed and shaped.

The current Sketch N Stash challenge is a free choice of all their previous sketches and I've used sketch no 3.

Lots of Flowers for Polka Doodles

The challenge this week at Polka Doodles is Lots of Flowers. For my card I've used an image from the Sugarplum Daisy CD. It's coloured with promarkers and the little bunny is decoupaged with glamour dust on his tail. As I'm waiting for inks for my printer, I've used a backing paper from my stash. It's by Wild Rose Studio and has lots of daisy like flowers. The small flowers at the top are a punch by Woodware (which I love as it punches 10 small flowers at a time) and I've coloured the centres with a Promarker and shaped them. The three larger daisy's are another Woodware punch with shaped yellow card for the centres. The greeting is by Personal impressions mounted with Stampin Up punches

Polka Doodles Regal Colours

Polka Doodles challenge this week to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee is Regal Colours. As I'm away for the rest of the week I needed to get my card done quickly today.

There's lots to celebrate at Polka Doodles recently with their third birthday and the wonderful news that Rosemary Merry is joining the team so I've made a celebration welcome card for her. I've kept to the red white and blue theme with a freebie backing paper from Polka Doodle Dandies.  Her crown is a Cuttlebug die cut and the flowers are a Nellie Snellen punch cut from the same card to layer Rosemary's picture. I've used a Stampin Up punch for the bunting and my Quickcut Squeeze for the letters and of course added some diamond bling.

Polka Doddles Doodling

This weeks challenge at Polka Doodles is Doodling! They want you to doodle an edge or border.  This was certainly a challenge for me and to be honest, I wasn't going to play along this time but I eventually decided to have a go.

I've used a digi image from the Sugar Birdies CD and coloured it with Promarkers. The doodling is very simple around the edge of the image using a fine nib Promarker in soft peach. The backing paper is from the same CD. I wanted a border across the bottom so I've added some doodled button birds. I saw these in a magazine earlier this year and they have always stick in my mind. I've used a Sakura stardust pen to doodle the legs and curly tails. The wings and beaks are hearts cut in half and the buttons are from my stash.
