Polkadoodles Day

It's Friday, time for another Polkadoodles challenge, this week, it's a sketch (which I forgot to put on here, but that gives you a good reason to pop over to the site to see what all the DT have come up with, some wonderful creations on there this week). This card practically made itself, Nikky's designs are so easy to work with. I used my favourite papers from my Candy Doodles CD, and a couple of her new stamps, which complement the range. The tree is a stamp, and I added some buttons, just for fun, and parked the dog at the base of the tree - he looks as if he is debating whether to lift his hind leg :)



The sentiment is from the stamp sheet as well. It comes as a rubber sheet of unmounted stamps, I didn't have any mounting stuff, so I just cut out the stamps I wanted to use and stuck them onto an acrylic block with a glue stick, they stamped perfectly. There are downloads to be won each week, so why not join in the fun, the design team love visiting all the blogs and seeing what you have created
I can hardly contain myself, feel a bit like the dog at the base of the tree, because I know that I have the new 'Not for Girls' CD in the mail, should arrive any day now. I haven't seen the images yet, and can't wait, a whole CD with men's stuff on it. What a great idea

Thanks Rufus for telling us that the stamp from yesterday - still sizzlin - is by Art Impressions, and you are right, the sentiments are great. As well as the sizzlin comment, there is one that says 'smile, it's cheaper than a facelift' - now that is one that I will find a use for!

  17. Your cards are GORGEOUS! And here's a thought:
    if you're in the States right now and have cards you can donate to a good cause, please see this post phttp://dustinpike.blogspot.com/2009/10/card-update.htmlost:
    Dustin is a talented BIG-hearted, super generous digital artist and many of us who use his digital stamps also support a good cause when possible.
    I hope you can join us.
