Polkadoodle Friday

Over at Polkadoodles this week, the challenge is to use three different pattern papers. Yes, there are three different patterns in the card below, all aqua, all printed out from the Wonderland CD. The roses are scallop circles cut into a spiral (MFT rolled rose), I added a pink circle to the centre, and sprinkled that with some white seed beads. Lettering is Thickers by American Crafts, punches are EK success. The leaves are a Sissix die




Tomorrow there will be a chance to win some Polkadoodles goodies - be sure to drop by


I seem to have 'popped into' Michaels and Joanns a few times this week, not for any major purchase, just that I find them irresistible. I spend more time looking at stuff that has nothing at all to do with making cards, and can get quite carried away. I have almost become a knitter, was very close to making myself a cute necklace, had visions of fabulous flower arrangements, and I won't even talk about the wonderful wedding cakes I have (mentally) decorated. Oh yes, I once spent about an hour choosing exactly what size canvas I would need to paint my masterpiece, and carefully selected some sable brushes, before I remembered that I can't draw or paint. Ah well, some people linger for hours looking longingly at diamonds in Tiffanys, I suppose that lusting after a icing turntable is quite healthy (until I remember that I haven't baked a cake for about fifteen years!)


See you tomorrow

Enfys this is a beautiful and elegant card. I love your flowers, and you are the one who enabled me to get the die, also. LOL. I just can't get my flowers to lay as flat as you do. I love the way yours have turned out. And I love your thinking when in the craft stores. My family can't understand why I can spend so much time in there. Hugs, Debra

OMG! I do the same thing: practice painting, flower-arranging, decorating with fabric, etc.

I really think it's a healthy thing -- as long as we don't SPEND lots of money doing it! LOL!!!

Nice card, Enfys! Love your flowers.

I too, wander around the craft stores for hours when I have the chance. I did buy a couple of canvas in different sizes and I don't draw or oil, but I do have a couple of ideas. Thank you for the chuckle this morning!

Blessings, Donna

Great card! I love the flowers!
You know I'm one of those folks who 'window shop' at other crafts too. But I also do jewelry making, and crochet still a bit. So I can get broadsided by all sorts in a big box store!
Hugs, Jessica

Rufus said...

Isn't that what you are SUPPOSED to do in those stores??? Hey, if hubby can spend hours in Home Depot or Lowes, I can spend hours in Joanne's, Hobby lobby, or Michael's! Just wish they were a bit closer.

Pretty Card . .

You are too funny. Thanks for putting into words just how I feel when I visit Joann's and Michaels. I look a fabric and patterns but haven't sewed in forever. Look at yarn and pattern books and remember by hand cramps so that I can't finish an afghan or even a scarf. But looking and imagining is so much fun.

Hi Enfys yes we all have that problem with dreaming thinking we might just managed a masterpiece, you can tell yourself that your cards are all that and more, what fabulous flowers. With hugs Shirleyx
