Polkadoodles Christmas....

On Polkadoodles this week, we were asked to use three different papers, and the Polkadoodles stamps. I didn't have a lot of time, because of this wedding scrapbook I have been working on, so I ferreted around and found a couple of scraps of my favourite papers from the Jingle Jangle CD, I stamped the snowflakes in red on a white base card, then stamped the tree onto a scrap of aqua and dotted some jewels about, plus a lot of doodling..........

I hope all my USA friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It is black friday here today, the day when there are huge sales on in all the shops, so I have been shopping since 5a.m. this morning - I know, crazy, but I have now finished my Christmas shopping and feel very smug. I have some lovely new cashmere sweaters to cozy up in when I get home, and five new cricut cartridges to play with. I also have a pile of cricut cartridges sitting here (lots and lots of them) that I bought as a favour for various online friends back in the UK, so they need to be parcelled up and sent off. I was only too happy to help, we just don't get the bargains at home especially as far as craft items go.
Time for a nap, all this shopping has been exhausting...........


  1. Lovely card, made with GREAT papers! :) :)

    Sweet greetings,
    Saskia :)

  2. Hi Enfys,
    you have again made a wonderful card. Great compliment.

  3. Love these fun papers Enfys and your little tree ornaments are perfect!

  4. Sounds like you've had a productive day of shopping! Congrats on all your fabulous finds. How nice of you to help out all your mates in the UK.
    *I am not trying to solicite business, but just to be informative, you can let them know (if you'd like)that I have pretty fair prices (I think) on crafting goodies in my store and I DO ship across the pond :) Unlike a lot of the larger stores here in the states.
    I hope I have not offended you by posting that because truely I consider you a friend not a means to gain business :)

  5. Great card, very modern. Love all the doodling. Lucky girl having your christmas shopping finished, I haven't started yet!!!! Help lol.

  6. Oh Enfys, you didn't tell us what carts. you brought for yourself.. :-( Love your "quick" card. All the doodling sets it off very nicely. hugs

  7. Very nice, Enfys. I think blue is becoming my new favorite Christmas color.

  8. Gorgeous Christmas card En. I love the tree and the colours, really unusual for Christmas.
    Your shopping sounds exhausting but good on you for finishing all your Christmas shopping.
    You are such a generous person shopping for your friends too. Craft things seem to have gone up in price alarmingly over here in the last few months. I think we'll all have to become a bit more thrifty!!
    Have a great weekend.
