polkadoodle vintage girl stamp

Nikky, the owner of Polkadoodles has just brought out some new rubber stamps, I was lucky enough to get a few, and I love this little girl image. All the background papers are from the Polkadoodles CD All Around and Everywhere, and I kept the image and papers quite tonal.

Promarker Colours used :
Skin - Ivory and pastel pink
Clothes - Orchid and Amethyst
teddy - Vanilla and Honeycomb
Hair - Buttercup
Shadow - Ice grey 1
Sentiment, Papers and Girl stamp - Polkadoodles
Border punch - Martha Stewart
Is anybody else addicted to Angry Birds? (It's an app for an iphone/pod)
My kids insisted I downloaded it onto my new iPod touch (which sadly doesn't have a single CD on it yet, as I don't know how to do it, I know, sad.........).
So no music, nothing much of anything at all except these darn little birds that are taking over my life. I even take it with me and play it whilst I am having my morning c0ffee, so if you think the coffee-house stories have been a bit thin on the ground, it's because of the dratted birds, I am too busy to look up and observe the world as I usually do.
I only bought the iPod touch because I really wanted to have a screen to swipe - I felt so left behind as everyone swiped their screens, I had swiping envy..............the final straw was when my one year old grandson, tried to change programmes on the Tv by swiping the screen (yes, I thought that was pretty clever too). Everyone in the world is swiping, so here I am, in with the cool crowd, trying to shoot angry birdies from a virtual catapult at virtual green pigs.
Must go, I'm on level 5.............................


  1. What a sweet little image and love the soft colors you used to color her and her little bear. Speaking of bears...we had a rather large one run through our neighborhood today and I got to see it (thank goodness from across the street and just before I ran into the house!) Amazing how quick one runs when scared LOL!!!!

  2. That is the cutest card. I love the little girl.
    I really don't care one way or the other about the ads because I don't usually click on them. I love your site however and would be more than happy to send a contribution to you because you are so generous! Send me your addy please.

  3. Funny story about Ipod "swiping envy"! The card is so pretty, and I especially love the scalloped edge!


  4. Oh Enfys why would you play with birds when you can play with your Gypsy? LOL I know what you mean about swipe envy I was having it too and went to get a fancy new phone to help with the problem but ended up with on with big numbers so I could work the darn thing. No swipes for me. Yet anyway. LOL
