Pink and Orange for Polka Doodles


Here is my card for the Polka Doodles challenge this week. The design team were asked to use pink and orange, and two buttons. The buttons are tiny ones in the centre of the two smaller flowers. Everything on the card, paper, flowers, etc are downloads from the new Sugar Birdies CD. I sprayed the flowers with water as a bit of an experiment, and when it was dry it left quite a pleasing pattern of watermarks on the paper. I love those sentiment circles too, have a look on the blog and you will see that they can be printed out in different sizes too. Why don't you have a go this week, Nicky is going to be sending a freebie download as a thank you to everyone who enters a card in the challenge. The sketch is below.....

I have just bought these pens, they are advertised as Copic glitter pens, German, and waterbased not alcohol based. Gorgeous colours, and very reasonable too. you get a copic multiliner, (perfect for doodling) in the pack. I saw them on a blog and made a comment, and got the link from Cass, thanks Cass, and couldn't resist buying. Free postage in the UK, and super fast service. They even sent me a freebie of 3 gel pens. Cult Pens is the company, take a look, they do copics too.




Look, you can see the sparkle even in a photo.......

I had a phone call yesterday "Enfys, you haven't forgotten I asked you to make a card for my mother's 85th birthday?" "Of course not" I lied "remind me, when is it?" "Tomorrow"
YIKES! I have a master list of commissions waiting to be done, and I have lost it. Now the list isn't in a nice altered notebook, or even pinned up somewhere, it is a scrappy bit of paper that sort of hangs around getting dog-eared, and now it has gone AWOL altogether, probably swept up with the rest of the scraps off my table. I really need to go on a course 'How to keep track of lists you have made' or even 'tidy tips for dummies'. In the meantime, I can expect a lot of similar phone calls in the next couple of months.

Great card. Thanks for the heads up about the pens. They look amazing. Too pricey tho by the time I add in shipping to the states. Will have to keep my eyes open to see if anyone carries them here soon.

Kristina said...

Oh where to begin?
I love the card, that think you did with the ribbon, so neat, I must try it.
The copic glitter pens are so cool too. I am trying to resist buying some.
The new pics of the kids are so adorable!( I've been away on vacation for a while)
Hugs,
Kristina
