Polkadoodle Fairy

A simple little card today, for Polkadoodles weekly challenge, which this week is to use stamps, and stamps only, no pattern paper. I cheated a bit, because I like this busy little fairy flutterby Maggie, I just left the background plain.

Promarkers used:

Skin - Ivory, blush and soft peach

hair - warm grey 4, warm grey 5, umber

clothes lipstick red/crimson/holly green/pine green

toadstool: berry red/oatmeal

If you like challenges, be sure to enter Polkadoodles, a prize for the winner each week, and if you are going to the craft fair at Doncaster this weekend, be sure to go and say hello to Nikky, the owner of Polkadoodles, she is exhibiting there
I thought it might raise a smile to share this email with you, from my daughter in law, mummy to Max and Milo
Shock development in World Eating Championship................
After 3 years and 2 months in the lead, reigning champion Max appears to be finally full. Spectators were astonished when he turned down a chocolate mousse and cheese crisps today
Ready and waiting to take the baton is rank outsider Milo, who, today alone, has demolished weetabix, banana, banana crisps, omelette, blackberries, yoghurt, cereal bar and is currently munching a plastic chicken leg
Yes, the boys like their food!
Off to the dentist now, I need a filling I'm told, so I will spend the rest of the day being a dribbly slobbering mess.

Poor Dear, I hope the dentist won't hurt you. I had an extraction two weeks ago. After half an hour of struggeling my dentsit said "You really hang on tight to this tooth, don't you?

The card is very pretty - no patterned papers would be a real challenge for me, I love them!

Sweet card. I love your coloring Enfys. LOL at the babes and their food consumption. I watch a sweet little one year old little girl who might give them a run for their money. Dad let her eat three, yes I sid three, hot dogs with fruit and some veggies in one sitting. It's amazing she didn't explode.

Hi Enfys, wow what a pair of little hogs, I know boys eat a lot but why a plastic chicken leg couldnt you find the real thing for him. Only chocking its lovely to hear that they dont mind eating, my hubbys granddaughters the same.
I do love your card its gorgeous and those little fairies are so cute. With love and hugs Shirleyxx
Hope you managed to get your tooth repaired.

You could avoid the drools and dribbles if you didn't get the novocain. I will be thinking of you and if I hear a loud yelp I'll know where it could be from. Love your card. You are so creative.

Enfys, I don't believe you're calling that a "simple little card"!!! It's adorable and it looks like some work was put into it!

I hope all goes well at the dentist!

Aren't grandchildren the greatest invention ever? Is your drooling over yet? That's a terrible mental vision! Love your card even without the patterned paper.
