Butterflies and Pearls for Polkadoodles


Scroll down to leave a comment to win the Promarkers


I really enjoyed doing this week's challenge card for Polkadoodles. We were asked to choose:
Butterflies or Fairies
Ribbon or Lace
Pearls or Gems
Pink or Turquoise
I chose butterflies, lace, pearls and turquoise
All the papers and the image were printed from the Sundae of Seasons CD, the pearls are Papermania adhesive pearls, the lace is a scrap of white lace that I dipped in tea to make it look vintage. The sentiment is a Stampin Up stamp. Base card by Craftwork Cards
Why don't you have a go and enter the challenge?
I love doing challenges, I often don't have the time, but when I do they kick start a creative gene

My car has developed a personality, every time I lock it up and walk away, it starts loudly protesting, the alarm tooting like crazy, lights flashing. It seems to be saying 'missing you already........' I feel as if I have a demanding toddler instead of a heap of metal.
See you tomorrow

Beautiful card! I know what you mean about the car, I had a Ford Windstar that cried aftern me also and sometimes it would wait until I was sitting down to a nice dinner to start. Thanks for the chance to win the Pro markers

Rufus said...

Enfys, I thought you'd cut out a piece of DP!! How beautiful! Got a good laugh out of your metal . I can just picture it. So do you skulk away and pretend you've never seen that hunk of metal before or do you give it a pet and promise to come back soon? LOL!

Donna said...

Oh my gosh, I love your cards! I've been thinking of replacing some of my ink pads with the markers. With the Cricut, I'm doing less stamping and hand cutting, but find myself wanting to hand color more. Finding a balance . . .

Blessings, Donna
