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: Greetings of the Season

There's a new challenge over at the Digi Choosday challenge blog - anything goes but the DT were challenged to create a Christmas card - easy peasy because I just LOVE Christmas!! I've used the cutest little dress up reindeer image from the Winnie White Christmas download kit together with the pretty papers and sentiment from the same kit (Polkadoodles). I've added some shimmer to the little Rudolph nose because let's face it you can't have too much glitter at Christmas time right?

I've also used 'petrol' satin ribbondecorative pinslaceadhesive pearls and a wooden snowflake button from The Ribbon Girl

Polkadoodles: Tis the Season ...

There's a new challenge at the Polkadoodles challenge blog today. It's anything goes like usual but the DT have been challenged with a Christmas/Winter theme.

I've used the Winnie White Christmas download kit  - papers, sentiment (cut from a larger image) and the delightful Winnie - from Polkadoodles with some wintery/frosty paint and paper distressing

Polkadoodles: It's A Party ...

Over at the Digi Choosday challenge blog there is a new Anything Goes challenge and the DT challenged themselves to create a party card. I made this Happy Birthday wizarding card!

 I used the fabulous wizard precoloured digi stamp from Polkadoodles plus brick wall paper (thought it looked a bit like Kings Cross Station) from the same Little Dudes bundle and striped paper from the Winnie White Christmas bundle.

The font used for the 'happy birthday' greeting was a download from DaFont and I found the platform 9 3/4 sign with a quick Google search.

I inked the edges of the papers to create the effect of being in the station and added some twine, polka dot button and star beads from The Ribbon Girl

I added some acrylic dots and added a bit of shimmer to his wand and his glasses with a Zig wink of stella pen


Polkadoodles: Bright Colours

The new challenge over at Polkadoodles is an Anything Goes challenge but this time the DT challenged themselves to use bright colours ... my card is definitely bright!!!

I used this beautiful precoloured digi stamp from the Winnie Fruit Punch digi download bundle and the papers and sentiment were from the Winnie Celebrations 1 digi download bundle. I also added some tiny, coloured adhesive pearls and an orange polkadot button from The Ribbon Girl. I added some shimmery loveliness to the cocktails with a Zig wink of stella pen


Polkadoodles: Focus on the Sentiment ...

There is a new 'Anything Goes' challenge today over the Digi Choosday blog and this week the DT challenged themselves to focus on the sentiment ... and I fell in love with this Christmas sentiment!

I used the sentiment and paper from Winnie White Christmas digi download kit and added a wooden snowflake button and red bakers twine from The Ribbon Girl

Polkadoodles: Not a Square or a Round ...

The new challenge over at Polkadoodles is Anything Goes but the DT challenged ourselves to make a card that wasn't a square or a round ...

 I used this fabuloso precoloured digi stamp from Polkadoodles called Rocket Boy and added 2 fab designer papers and the sentiment from the same bundle. The buttons are from the Ribbon Girl ( I love spotty buttons!) and I added beautiful shimmery sparkliness with a Zig wink of stella brush pen


Polkadoodles: It's Party Time!

Here is another Polkadoodles card! Lots of bright colours and patterned papers on this party time card

For this card I used Winnie Celebrations 1 download kit (paper, image and sentiment) from Polkadoodles plus pretty decorative pins and adhesive pearls from The Ribbon Girl


Polkadoodles: Winston the Bear ...

I made this for a recent challenge over at the  Digi Choosday Challenge blog but had a problem with being locked out of my blog so I couldn't go back to edit my post, anyway I thought I would share it here too

I used Papers, sentiment and Winston the bear image are from the Winston Download Collection at Polkadoodles and satin ribbonpolkadot button and decorative pins from The Ribbon Girl


New blog ...

I appear to have lost my original blog :( so for now I'm using this new one. A sad post is always cheered up by the addition of a pretty card though!!
