Summer at Polkadoodles

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE BLOG CANDY POST


Summer's here! Or at least, it's supposed to be (which is why the cover is still on our patio heater in the photo below, most evenings are too cold for the garden even with a heater). Long range forecast says that July will remain unsettled and cool........I just knew I should have stayed in Spain

So at Polkadoodles this week, our theme is Summer. Any project or card, just use bright summery colours that make you feel sunny and warm

I decided to print out some green spotty paper, and digi flower stamps from the Sundae of Seasons CD, and made some napkin rings. They were so quick to make, and really do look pretty, I think I will be making a lot more of these every time I have a supper party (which isn't very often these days, crafting doesn't leave much time for cooking :)
The flowers on each one (I made six) are different, but they are all coloured with the same ProMarker colours. I used buttercup. gold, apple green, so they all look part of a set
I am in the Lake District as you read this. I have come up with my friend Anne for a couple of days - she is doing some advanced prep for her daughters wedding, to be held here later this year. Expect some stories - things happen when we are together. Or even when we aren't together. Last week she had to be rescued from a locked toilet in France. Screwdrivers were involved I understand...

Lovely napkin rings, Enfys. I enjoy times with friends like that and can't wait to hear your stories. Send some of your cooler weather here and I'll send some of our heat your way :- ) Our evenings will be so hot, it will be hard to sleep. Have a wonderful weekend.
