I've woken up to a beautiful day again today, I hope it's the same for you wherever you are.  I have also woken up feeling very old and achy.  Balancing on the bath like a contortionist painting the bathroom yesterday was not the best idea in the world, lmao. Still two more coats to do as well, what fun!

I'm off to Kettering the week after next for a full but fun packed training day with Sheena from Creative Expressions.  I'm really looking forward to it, although I am already familiar with all the products and tools we will be using.  However you are never too old to learn something new or pick up new ideas, and it is going to be fun day.

This weeks Polka Doodles challenge was to create texture and dimension onto our projects.  It is also the blogs birthday and Nikky has created a fabby male themed download bundle and is giving away some great prizes for the challenge, so click on the link above and hop on over there and  take a looksy.  The rest of the Design Team have as always made some fabulous projects for you to get inspiration from.

This is my effort this week.  I used papers from the free download and I dug around my stash and found my old ribbler.  I also used a couple of cuttlebug folders, highlighted all the texture with distress inks and then layered the pieces on top of each other with foam pads.
Here are the cards I made for Making Cards using the talented Dyan's Blond Moments products. You can find all the Blond Moments range and so much more over at Art From the heart , but be warned, once you're there you may not escape without putting your bank balance in jeopardy.
This is a card I did for our friends mum.  As it is a special birthday they wanted a special card so I couldn't say no now could I.  The colours have gone a little haywire between the camera and lappy but you can get the drift so to speak.
A couple of cards I did last year for Making Cards, excellent for Fathers day or just male birthdays.
And another set, I used My Minds Eye Bella Bella Bellezo papers and stamps by Hero Arts.  They can be found at A Card 4 U
Have a good week all.
