Get Well Cards for Polkkadoodles - and some news.....

On Polkadoodles this week, the challenge (set by me!) is to use a bug of some sort on your get well card, and to use an alternative to ribbon - string, raffia etc. I cut a random leaf shape out, and nibbled away at it with punches to look as if the bugs have been chomping on it.
I added some string, a couple of lulu ladybirds off the Sugar Birdies CD and dropped blobs of glossy accents here and there. The flower is one of Polkadoodles stampies
I made another one as well, to show that the papers from the CD can make elegant cards as well as funky ones. Here I cut a swirl from the ice blue swirl paper, and cut two butterflies using the cuttlebug cut and emboss butterflies. I printed the kiss paper out in blue onto vellum which I cut with the storybook cartridge

then used two strips of lace by Rusty Pickle to finish it off. The little sentiment is by Hero Arts

and now some news. The design team over on Funky Hand are excited about a new challenge blog we are starting on the 1st August. The challenges will be monthly, and there will be a prize (a beautiful BIG fabulous prize) every month for the lucky winner, plus freebie downloads and all sorts of other fun things. Are you ready to Get Funky?

I have just had a lovely phone chat with my teamie from Funky Hand and Polkadoodles, Kath. We nattered on for over an hour, it was lovely. I could hear the hooligan Buddy barking while we were on the phone, guess what, it was the postie with another craft delivery. Now there's a surprise.....
