Fun Decoupage Cards

Nikky, the owner of Polka Doodles sent me these cute diecut decoupage sheets to play with, they were such fun, really bright modern images, they make the cutest cards very quickly
Isn't this one perfect for a footie fan? The happy birthday football paper is her design as well

As for this one - well, there are a number of chaps of my aquaintance that this would be perfect for. What's better than a pint in the pub with the paper and a bag of crisps? I left this one quite plain, as the image speaks for itself



Go to the website to see more of these decoupage sheets at Polka Doodles


I am a drooling, dribbling mess at the moment, having just returned from the dentist where I had, at huge expense, two fillings replaced. I can tolerate the dentist quite well, and mine is a lovely guy, but I hate the hygeinist thing, all that water gushing around makes me feel I am drowning. It doesn't help when she chats away asking me questions 'have you been on holiday this year dear?' when my mouth is full of steel implements 'arghhh mmm lobl ghh' I reply, and she nods wisely and says 'yes, we love it there too'. Is part of their course learning to interpret goobledegook speak? Or is there really some far flung tropical island called arghhh mmm lobl ghh?
I spoke to a very nice person at the Glitter Pot yesterday afternoon, made an order, and it arrived this morning. What a great service, and they have a fantastic website with goodies to drool over, even if you haven't been to the dentist

Enfys, those cards are adorable! You always do a fantastic job. Love the dentist story, not that you had to have fillings replaced, but that the hygenists are the same where ever you go LOL!! Hope you're having a fantastic day.

Great cars Enfys. I know exactly what you mean about the dentist chatting away when he has his hand in your mouth. I think they do it on purpose for a giggle!!!

Great cards Enfys, really love the one in the pub, male cards are always hard to do but this is a great idea may just have to pop over to polka doodles myself.

Hope your fillings are ok now.

Ramona Michaluk said...

What great cards ! Love these 3D images and your little touches of other embellishments - the pearls on the cupcakes and handbag are just so cute! Fantastic job with all of these - you have some great ideas!

~Jeri~ said...

LOL Enfys!! I have thought the same about the hygenists many times. Why do they always wait to ask you the questions once they fill your mouth with instruments and water? Anyways, very nice decoupage cards! One day I am going to sit down and make myself learn that technique! Love the final results!

This is changing faster than Lindsey Lohan's story. 2 There's nothing wrong with that, but you may as well just buy an index fund (or broad ETF) if that's your only goal. An exchange-traded fund is an investment fund traded on stock exchanges just like stocks.
