Love from Andrea ...

Thank you for visiting my new blog. I hope you enjoy my cards. I just love to make pretty things and if I'm not crafting or shopping for crafting supplies (it's a hobby in itself!) then I'm plotting and planning and thinking about what I want to make next!

Polkadoodles: Forgotten Techniques ...

There is a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog... it's always 'anything goes' but the DT were challenged to use a forgotten technique and I just can't turn down the opportunity to make another Christmas card so my project is a Christmas card but my forgotten technique is the doodled border around the edge of the card. My cards always used to have this kind of doodling on them and I'd forgotten how it can finish off a card and bring it all together within the focal point

I used a precoloured image, papers and sentiment tag from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs (Polkadoodles) and added my favourite red saddlestitch ribbon, polka dot button, pins and stickles all from The Ribbon Girl. I also used corrugated kraft card and dimensional Snowpaste to add to the festive feeling
