scott and mo are having a holiday snoozle so i have got my polkadoodle challenge card done!!!! the weather is gorgeous again, mo and i were on the beach at 6:45am!!!!! and we have been to norfolk lavendar for a cream tea, going back for dinner when the boys wake up!!!!! so heres my polkadoodle card, the picture isn't great as its too bright if i take it outside and not quite bright enough if i take it inside!!!!
I am a little bit sad as in my rush to pack i left the gorgeous polkadoodle butterflies i had printed out to go with it in the printer!!! so i had to go for a pearlescent happy birthday instead!!! the stamps are some papermania ones i got free on my do-crafts mag. The ribbon was going to match the butterflies to a tee but hey ho!!! it still looks cute!!!! I am currently sat on the decking outside the caravan under a curtain so i can see my laptop as the reception is a little dodgy and worse inside!!!
Don't forget to click on my polkadoodle blinkie to take you to the site to check out this weeks sketch!!!!

For mine I got out my storybook cart, there is just so much on this one cart I love it!! I cut out the scalloped circle in 2 sizes to get the shadow, ran the smaller of the 2 through my cuttlebug with my new birds and swirls folder my big sis got me and inked it brown, then i inked the bigger scallop and popped some brown dots around the edge. I foam squared them together and opped them on my base ( also inked...you know how i love to ink!!!!)
Then I cut the bird on the branch and cut the robin to go on top ( that took a bit of playing around to cut one a size that would go nicely but I found it !!!) I inked all the edges brown and inked the leaves green.I went over the wing and eye with a brown whisper pen and then glazed the little robin to make him pop up a little, he is such a cutie.
I popped a bit of ribbon across and made my sentiment in word ( inside just says '....its your birthday') and inked th edges of that too (.....Lou wonders if she needs to join inkers anonymous?!!lol!!)
The little bird in the circle is just a punched circle I popped through my cuttlebug with the birds and swirls folder again, strategically placing it to get the little bird in the middle!!!!!!!....errrr...inked again!!!
As for the corner, I actually cheated a little bit . I wanted to use all my scraps left from my layout as the thin cardstock I used was just so pretty and I just had enough left to do the card so I cut 2 sqaures, (one patterned and one plain) cut them in half diagonally and stuck them on, I popped a basic grey brad through the plain piece that tied in the colours.
I think it turned out cute, I just have a sketch book left to make to finish off the birthday order from big sis for the person she asked for the card tonight and the present will be done.
Thankyou for popping by, hope you are all enjoying the weekend xxxx http://polkadoodle.blogspot.com/

Well, what a busy few days I have had!!!! I have finally got my challenge card done for the uk crafters thread on the cricut mb!!! I used my happy bithday cuttlebug folder and then popped some white card strips with black adhesive lace on and doodled some fake stitches on them. I cut out one of my sisters gorgeous circles and put some white glitter glue on for the frosting. I coloured the dots on the ribbon on the cupcake in black and put little blobs of glaze on them to make them pop out!! I put some little white gel pen dots around the edge of the circle and inked the edges white,I added 3 little black adhesive gems and then stamped and heat embossed 'celebrate' in white.

just a quicky for tonight as I am pooped out after a lovely day with 2 of my favourite men!!! ( nope not ty from xtreme makeover and simon baker.....dh and ds!!!)
This is my card for the male card challenge over on the cricut mb uk crafters thread.The challenge was a male card with a button on!!! (to get to this card I had 3 other attempts that lined my bin beautifully!!!!)
I finally decided to give myself a days break from it and went to play at my very lovely new friend fiona's house on thursday night and she let me stamp some of her magnolia stamps, i took a shine to this party edwin one nd stamped myself a couple in between snuggling fiona's new puppy spencer!!!
I took them home and placed them on my table but it was too late for me to play with him when i got home from fiona's and the rest of my week has been so busy!!
Finally last night I had a good chance to play and painted him up a bit. I popped some stickles on the tiny stars and inked the edges up. I used a bit of my big one stack to pop on the card base it says happy birthday and best wishes all over it. I stuck that down to my scalloped card base and inked the edges of that too.
Then i popped my ribbon on and threaded some through the holes in my little blue button ( lol!!! that was tricky!!!!!) and woo-hoo my card was done!!!!
I am loving my stamping attempts at the moment! I keep practising my colouring and I am really gettng into the swing of it!!
Don't forget to sneak a peek at my sisters blog, she has more image download on there now and more to come over the bank holiday!!!
