AWOL

Hi everyone, just wanted to stop by because I have been AWOL for a while, as usual lol! We have a lot going on right now at Polkadoodles and have been having some web issues at home so I havent been around online as much as usual, but it doesn't mean I'm not busy somewhere.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up to watch our shows on 29th September with the uber talented Rosemary Merry who is certain to inspire you with some lovely crafty delights so please tune in!

We will be at GNPE Harrogate as usual (7-8 Oct I think) so pleeease come say hi on the stand, my lovely mad crafty friend NJ will be helping out and it's the first outing for the Polkadoodle Pixie who is extremely excited at being at her first craft show! Poor Pixie, we keep her so busy it drives her mad not being able to craft enough - she loves scrapbooking and cardmaking and I've promised her some lessons to get her into 'our' crafty ways but we're always so swamped she can only snatch 5 minutes here and there, poor little Pixie - I think I might get her making all my crimbo cards this year, that'll give her plenty of practice and will keep her quiet LOL!!...

Also, watch out online as we have some lush new stock about to land this week and a mega exciting new launch very soon which I think a lot of peeps have been waiting for!

My series of tutorials in Simply Cards & Papercrafts has ended for the time being, I simply seem to have no time these days, I've no idea where it all goes, it sure does fly faster as you get older!

Right I must dash, catch you all soon! x

Whimsy Day

Hi everyone! Just popped on to show you a sweet little card I made the other day. We are now stockists of Whimsy Stamps Wee Stamps and Little Cottage Cuties ranges which we all adore at PD towers! Soooo cute! The packaging on these is a little uninspiring I think with just plain black and white images so I'm in the process of colouring them all in to show you (hopefully) what you can do with them instead!

So my first one is possibly my favourite, I've loved this design for ages and it's Little Rose's Bike Ride, which I coloured with a mix of Copics, Kuretake Fine & Brush AND Pro and Flexmarkers would you believe lol!! All topped off with some elements I had hanging around in my stash, the sentiment is from Pretty Sweet I think and bits and pieces from Picknix 1...enjoy! xx
