Launch of Polkadoodles Challenge Blog

Today sees the launch of Polkadoodles brand new challenge blog, look at this fabulous blog candy that's up for grabs, worth over £80, so well worth joining in to be in with a chance to win. The design team samples are fantastic and I am a bit star-struck to be joining the mega talented bunch.


Here is my first DT card, the downloadables were a joy to work with, and the bold designs are so up-to-the-minute.
I used my new pinking edge nestabilities on this one, the jury is out about whether I like them or love them, but they do make a change from the scallops which I have done to death over the past six months. I was short of time with the long haul from the US looming, so printed out the birdhouse (already coloured) twice, and did a bit of paper piecing. I cut out the branch and suspended it over the house with silicone glue, adding a gingham loop and bow.
We made a rather jet-lagged dash down to London yesterday to pay homage to the new little man, who is totally delectable. Max is rather unimpressed with his new baby brother though, and clearly thinks that this baby business is greatly overrated........
The winner of the blog candy for the BBTB blog hop is
Janie in Canada
Congrats Janie, you win the candy box template and some fabric ladies for you to play with. Email me with your address/email
