Pink, Charms and Ribbons


Hi everyone,
this little cards main feature is the digi image by Emma Canning, I drew her onto a welded panel of berries and holly whichI curved around to the front of the card and created using my cameo and then I daubed Tim Holtz distress pad inks on, I coloured a back panel and used pads to layer the top on to add depth, the sentiment is from polkadoodles, I added ribbon, pearls and a christmas tree charm,
I am entering this card into the creative inspirations challenge which is a challenge based on a bingo card.

Two cards,
 one cutout, I had alot of fun designing this tiger cutout, note to oneself must do some more oriental style cards.


This is the card i have entered into the polka doodles challenge, only this is a new post as i lost the first one, oops, lesson learnt be careful what your doing when you dont know what your doing, hmmm seems to be the story of my life, lol. Anyway just love these digis by Emma canning, you can get yours on the polkadoodles site, for the background i just used scraps of card and waste dots from a cutout that i use to make papers, added the topper coloured with promarkers. i used American seam binding for the bow and added string beads for a bit of bling.

Another blog, this is a card which i make all the components on my latest video on youtube using an Emma Canning  image, which i adore, Emma is a very clever designer, so you should check her out, her images are sold exclusively on polkadoodles,the image was coloured with promarkers, and i edged with tim holtz distress pad, the faux stiching is a tim holtz distress pen. markers..pastel blue
                                 powder blue
                                dusky pink
                                 tulip yellow
distress pads.............dusty concord

these cards are my entry to this months challenge set by nicky hall at polkadoodles, the first one is a favourite
that i made a short while ago with the cute little Humphrey stamp, spellbinders and embossibilities.
the second card was made using the candy doodles cd, the image was drawn with the cameo and coloured with promarkers, i used the itty bitty spellbinders dies, wrote the sentiment to match the image and added satin edged organza ribbon.

the 3rd card uses the emma canning image that was july's challenge as instructed and using the tag i made for the weekly polkadoodles challenge, the image is actually welded to the tag panel then drawn on, coloured with promarkers, i added flowers, ribbon, butterflies and used k&co papers.

Hi everyone, thought I would share my card with you, which i entered into the polkadoodles July challenge, and to my surprise won, shocked, yep very, the image was a free one for the challenge by Emma Canning a very talented lady, which in turn has led to a new challenge starting with this blog, so we can all hold Nikky Hall totally responsible, actually it was a very good idea by the lovely lady, to encourage us all to showcase some of our work.


Hello, welcome to my first ever blog, this shall be another learning curve for me, but a chance to showcase the things that i create.
