Right it's a real quickie today, I had lots to say, but time pushes on so I'll keep it quick.
Firstly, I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. Yeah I know, It may be hoping for too much, but we can all have dreams can't we?
Here are the last 2 Polka Doodles challenges for you. Don't forget that Nikky has a show on Create & Craft sky671 or freeview36 the the 4th January. Then she has another show on the 8th Jan launching her new CD, so get those dates fixed and don't miss them.
For today's (Friday 24th) challenge I've made a gift bag from a C5 envelope. My main image is Nikky's gorgeous cupcakes which I've stamped onto pale blue card and used silver embossing powder. I then watercoloured it with Aquamarkers. I'm sorry to to say it doesn't show that well in the photo, I seem to be going through a bad photographer phase at the moment! I've used papers from Paper Boutique Vol1 cd, Tea Dye and Stormy Sky distress inkpads, Martha Stewart corner punch, recycled brown card, raffia and eyelets.Sundae of Seasons CD. I edged the numbers with a silver ProMarker, first the fat nib then I went round again with the fine nib. I've added adhesive gems, ribbons and added some faux stitching.
