You Make Me So Happy........

On polkadoodles this week the team followed a sketch and were asked to use papers from the new CD, candydoodles. I chose this design with the trees, which I think is really fresh and funky. I cut an aperture in the front of the card with my coluzzle, and lined the back with the paper..

popped a little dog inside with an inkadinkadoo sentiment which reads 'you make me so happy I could wag my tail'
stitched around the outside - well, it's faux stitching again, zigzag stitch done with no thread in the machine, and the dots joined with a brown pen, the good thing about doing faux stitches on a card like this, is that you can make the exposed inside of the card look stitched too....
cut some little trees out to pop around the aperture, and added some martha stewart green twill ribbon, with an extra tie of brown gingham



This little dog is so darn cute.......


You have until Sunday to take part in last week's challenge, and to celebrate our two month blog challenge birthday, Nikky is giving away some CD's as prizes, so hurry and get a card made to be in with a chance, all the details are on the blog

Hi Enfys, thank you so much for stopping by today and for your warm and encouraging comments. I absolutely love this card, paper is a particular passion of mine.
Anyways it turns out that you have shopped in Craft Inspirations where I teach and demonstrate!!! The store owner was telling me about a shopper who had been featured in Papercraft Inspirations and how wonderful your designs are... low and behold it was you!! Small world.
Thanks again.

Bettythebaglady said...

Dear Enfys Hope you're feeling better twinnie. Think I'm coming up for air now. Saw that CD on Create and Craft this week but daren't get it- although I was blown away by all the polkadoodles CDs- I've bought so much stuff lately I'm not doing it justice at all so I'll wait until funds improve. It'll soon be the show in Manchester and there's always something new at craft shows!.....Hugs BettyXXX

The whole thing is cute, but I have to say you inspired me with your faux stitching! I've got this old sewing machine that I cannot seem to get the tension set just right...going to try this technique! Thanks!
