Polkadoodle Flower Challenge

Over at Polkadoodle challenge blog today, we were asked to use handmade flowers - die cut, hand made, anything except those that come out of a jar. I chose the easy route and simply cut some flower shapes out using the George cartridge, I wanted the flowers to look casual and sort of sketchy. The papers, image and sentiment are from the Pretty Sweet CD I coloured her in with ProMarkers

Skin Ivory and Blush
Hair Saffron and Buttercup
Clothes Satin, Pastel Pink, Ice Grey 1, 2 & 3 

Don't forget you have until Sunday night to enter your name for the Magical Winter Polkadoodles cartridge. Scroll down for the post. 

Max has started school, his teachers told his parents that he had been a bit upset at lunchtime each day (too noisy apparently, school takes some getting used to when you are only just four). Then after a few days he announced proudly 'I didn't cry at all today Daddy, not even a dribble'...bless!

    I can't believe they send them to school at 4 these days! But I'm sure they learn more and are prepared better for the rest of their school 'career'.
    Hugs, Jess

  9. Going off to school is a big deal for a little squirt. My grandson started school this year. He now is loving it. He even rides the big school bus. Love your card and the flowers.
    Thank you

  10. Your little girl looks so precious and your coloring is perfect. Little Max was pretty brave working through his fears. School is so terrifying for a little one especially when they haven't seen older siblings do it before them.

  11. Sweet card, Enfys. It would just break my heart to think of him sitting there crying. Glad he's adjusting. If we could just keep them sweet and innocent ;- )

  12. Cute card! Sometimes simple is the best. I love 'handmade' flowers on cards and layouts, love the bottled ones too though. Guess I just love flowers.

  13. How sweet! What a cutie!!

    Wonderful card as always!! I don't remember if I posted for this Magical Winter Polkadoodles cartridge already...but would love to have it!!!

  14. Oh bless his little heart. They do say the most honest things don't they. The first couple of days have got to be tough, when it's something so very new and different. Glad that he's adjusting.

  15. really cute cute max he is my sons age.tfs

  17. Hi, Enfys! My, what an adorable little card! I love your "casual" flower too! It just came together so well and is so sweet!

    Hope you're just having loads of fun, and that all's going well!


I love reading your comments, thank you for taking the time
