Win a POLKADOODLES CD

Today sees a brand new challenge over at Polkadoodles - a card or project with a hidden element. My hidden element is that you can guess what is inside the box I made. In my imagination it is filled with skeins of luscious silks in glowing colours, in real life it would hold a tangle of unravelled cotton reels and a split packet of pins.
I used an MDF BOX (from Hobbycraft) and painted it with antique white acrylic paint.
All the papers and elements were printed from the Sundae of Seasons CD

the scissors were printed out then cut around, I inserted a little brad which makes them look real
I twisted some real cotton around the paper cotton reels

Want to win a Polkadoodles CD? They are so easy to use and full of really fabulous images, you can print them out as shaped cards, or use the elements on their own. Coordinating papers, tags, you've got it all
Nicky is going to be sponsoring the blog on a monthly basis, so each month you will have a chance to win some scrumptious Polkadoodle goodies, and I am delighted to be able to share some of these great products with all my lovely blog followers.



Just some of the decoupage elements/shaped cards you will find on the CD



To see projects made with the CD, pop over to the inspiration gallery at Polkadoodles, and don't forget that there is free shipping worldwide, and no added sales tax. The CD's cost around $25 (with no tax or shipping) at today's exchange rate
To be in with a chance, just leave your name on this post, making sure I can identify you if you win. I will draw a winner by random.org on Wednesday 29th September. Enter any time before noon EST (5 p.m GMT) on that day.
Email subscribers, to enter, click on the going-buggy link at the bottom of your email, to leave your name
Good luck

This is really a great project. I like how the brad does make the scissors look real. Mine would stay untangled until the first time I used it too.

Everytime you post one of your projects from the Polkadoodles CD's, I made a mental note to go get it! Then I get tangled up in the web and by the time I sign off, I have forgotten {again}... so I'll just cross my fingers that I win it and you can send it to me and I won't have to worry anymore! My mental notebook is a little distressed!

This box is just adorable Enfys. I love Polkadoodles CD's but don't own any sadly. I am inspired to make one for my sewing bits and bobs. I am still using the one made from an ice cream carton that my children made me 25 years ago and decorated themselves!! I shall of course keep that one forever but it does need replacing - LOL!!
