Inky fingers and blue lips

Well I had a lovely messy time making my samples for yesterdays demo. There's nothing more satisfying that getting covered in ink and paint. I do now have stained finger nails that look like I have half the garden stuck under them. Very attractive indeed, I think I'm going to have to put some nail varnish on to hide it!

Don't you just hate it when your misters block up, I did the usual of soaking the top and tube in some hot water (which usually does the job very well) but no, it still wouldn't work. So I got this 'good' idea to take the tube off and blow through it. The only problem was I turned it round before I put it between my lips and yes you've guessed it, lovely shimmery blue ink on my lips, pmsl. It did look very odd, but it at least matched my fingers. Coordination is everything, don't you think?

Here are some of the samples I made for the demo, I really loved working with all the goodies. They are all from Creative Expressions, so check out your nearest stockist if you see anything you like.

And here is this weeks Polka Doodles DT card. We had to make a baby project and I think just about all of us used the new cd Sundae of seasons. Pop over to the PD blog and check out the lovely projects made by the rest of the team, they're all stunning. And another reminder about all the gorgeous new stuff that Nikky has got in for the Polka Doodles online shop, luscious East of India ribbons, labels and tapes, Doodly Dewdrops, Fru Fru ribbon packs ......... I could go on all night, just go and have a looksey here.
