Shaped Card for Polkadoodles

Today on Polkadoodles, the challenge is to make a shaped card. I found a pack of thank you cards on sale in Big Lots for a dollar. Well, they were worth a dollar just for the lovely red square envelopes. When I opened the pack, the 'cards' were just a single sheet of white card, with the thank you sentiments printed in a circle around the edge. The center was perfectly plain.

So I cut a red card using the doily cut from Wildcard, and stamped the Polkadoodles neighbourhood house stamp onto white, cut it out with a nestability and backed that with a red nestie circle. I think the result is fun,  what do you think?


We are in the Lake District for the wedding of the year - Kate and Will, eat your hearts out! Lots of photos will be shared next week. Have a lovely weekend

  12. I'm one of your fans, but I'm also one of those "giant" people you talked about being on a plane. We don't like being jammed in between people either. But I am not able to afford first-class seats. Apparently the only way "giant" people can fly without being made fun of is if they are well-off enough to afford these first class seats. I'm not giant because I want to be, but because of my health.
