Polkadoodles -Alter it challenge

I know , it was a box and now its !
It was a rather fetching detergent tablet box and now it is a home for my cute little fairy flutterfly stamps . I used my favourite polkadoodles cd for the background papers , the fairy flutterflys and flowers made from the newest cd " All around and everywhere "

I'm on the design team at I ♥ ProMarkers :)

 I was totally gobsmacked this week when Karen from I ♥ ProMarkers  contacted me and asked if i would like to join them as a design team member on a full time basis , I did n't have to think long to make up my mind .

I am a bit nervous about it but my 3 weeks as guest designer has obviously helped .
We have a sketch for you to follow this week

 here is mine

polkadoodles challenge 16

This gorgeous fairy- Gracie , and some of her friends have landed at polkadoodles and i could nt wait to use them.
Our challenge for you this week is to make your project in monochrome, i have gone for orange as i love this background paper which is from sugar birdies cd, it matches perfectly with one of the stamps in the set.Gracie's wings are a separate stamp in the form of a beautiful butterfly which I stamped onto heavyweight acetate and folded to raise Gracie off the frame .
Pop over to Polkadoodles and visit Gracie and her friends

I♥PROMARKERS challenge 11

This week at I♥PROMARKERS we (I'm still GDT) want you to use black and white with just one other colour . I have chosen to use this gorgeous fairy stamp - yes a real stamp and not a digi !  its new at polkadoodles , the fairy  comes in two parts so you can use her without the wings if you want to and then you also have a gorgeous butterfly to use elsewhere .

Polkadoodles -Animal Challenge

This weeks challenge at Polkadoodles is to make something with an animal on it .I had to make a card for my boss  for her 50 th birthday from all of us at work .She is a massive horse fan and has a horse called  Willie .
She likes to joke that she is going to ride her willie all weekend !
I  have used BTN for the  card , printing it at A4 , the rosette is made from papers on the cd ,cut out with Nesties .I had to add one of my little people the rest of them at work would n't have forgiven me if I had n't included her .

guest design team card

Here is my first card for my  I♥ promarkers challenge.
I have followed the sketch and used this gorgeous whimsy stamp image .
The image reminded me so much of my  cat Ted who has decided to move in with our next door neighbours, He is adorable and i miss him loads , i just catch the occasional glimpse of him crossing our fence, cats are not faithful animals are they ?

Polkadoodles challenge # 14

Kerry had asked us all to make a wedding card for her  polkadoodles challenge this week . I have used this cute couple from the love and cherish cd ,  i used papers from  back to nature although the colour is slightly different to how it is on the cd since my printer still has a mind of its own ! I rather liked how it came out . i even added a bit of stamping to this one using  polkadoodles stamps  -( the little spray bits behind the flowers) and they are not blurry !

I made top 3 at I ♥ promarkers

I was thrilled to discover that my vintage style wedding card was chosen for the very first  top3 over at

 I have had to make two entirely different wedding cards for the same couple , after making the first one as a side step card I found myself rather lacking in inspiration, so I had another bit of chocolate and browsed through some blogs for challenges . As I am a big fan of 


I decided to follow the sketch they have for this week's challenge .
The bride will be having a cream bouquet so i  thought a sepia theme would suit this picture from Mo Manning
I dont usually do vintage but i quite like the look of this one

Happy birthday Ruth !

 It is Ruth , one of my Polkadoodle teamies' birthday next week - so the challenge we have set you is to make a birthday card .I just love the look of these scrummy cakes on the love and cherish cd so i teamed it up with the equally delicious cherry papers  on the sugar birdies  disc .
I  was very brave and added some stamping - not something i like to do .If you look close you will see why .
Yes I managed to blurr it !
