No sketch this week over at Polka Doodles challenge, although there is one on there if you want some inspiration. The design team were asked to use Polly from the Sugar Birdies CD, and we had to colour her in ourselves (you have the option on the CD of printing her out already coloured). I used copic markers of course. Another requirement was to use paper ribbons, I cut some strips of paper and did a concertina thing then bunched them all together to make a funky little flower. I used a black button instead of the o in hello, and stitched around the outer edge of the card in a white zig zag (yes, I know black would have been better, but I couldn't be bothered to go through that whole rigmarole of squinting at that little needle trying to thread it for an hour). Everything on the card, papers, image, paper ribbon, sentiment circles, is from the CD.
Nikky, the owner of Polka Doodles is doing her first ever show on Ideal World/Create and Craft TV here in the UK on Wednesday 1st July at noon. She is very nervous, so be sure to watch her if you can, good luck Nikky. I will be watching, to see some of my cards flash across the screen for a nano-second.
I have updated the photos of the babies on my sidebar, I am going to have to do this regularly, they are changing so quickly as their little faces fill out. They both have eyes the colour of the sky on a summers day, I haven't captured that on film yet.
Whilst doing a bit of blog hopping I found a great blog with photos of all the latest nestability dies and the large cuttlebug embossing folders. I will certainly be in the market for some of these, they will be 5 x 7" and a much better size for the cards I make. Take a look HERE to see some photos.
