Hyacinth

Wow, it has been so hot this last week that I have been feeling very lazy, but I did make time to create a Birthday card for a work collegue, which is also my inspiration project for Polkadoodles DIGI CHOOSDAY challenge.

The image I have use is 'Hyacinth' from the Darling Buds collection, I have coloured her with copics in shades of pink and teal, my favourite colour combo.



I teamed her up with one of the beautiful papers from the Helga Hippo collection.




My colleague is a girl who likes a lot of bling, so I edged the white centre chevron with sticky back gems and finally I added a mini envelope with hearts escaping.

We would love to see you over on this weeks challenge at DIGI CHOOSDAY as always it is ANYTHING GOES and if you pop over today there is a special discount code.

Zodiac Sprites 2

Today I am back with the next set of Zodiac Sprites by Aurora Wings, for the new showcase today.

First up is the elegant Libra, she is coloured with Copics and mounted on Green and Teal Papers, which were left overs from a previous project, with a hand tied Green Satin bow.

I really like the next little fellow 'Scorpio', but for some reason when I was colouring him, I had a lobster in my head - hence the red/orange tones, but I think he looks super cute in these colours.

I really wasn't sure what background I wanted for little Leo, but then I remembered that I had already inked some backgrounds, so added some sparkly stars and a tiny tag, to sit my Leo on.

Some Bunny


I have a very quick and easy project to share today for my polkadoodles DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration.

The image I have used is "Some Bunny adores you' from the Too Cute collection, I thought this would be perfect to adorn a little treat bag for a new pet.

I have coloured him with Copics and used the blender pen to dab some texture on his fur.


The bag is a design from the Silhouette store which has been cut using one of the papers from Sticks and Bones.

Finally I tied some ribbon from my stash to add a cute bow.

We would love to see your wonderful work over on our Challenge blog where the theme is always ANYTHING GOES and you have a chance to win a Polkadoodles prize and don't forget that every Tuesday we add a discount code to the blog to help with your Polkadoodles purchases.

Little Mermaid

It's been a crazy week for me, busy at work and putting our house of the market, so it was nice to take time out to play with this adorable image from Polkadoodles for this weeks DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration.

This is Meribelle Swishy Tail, who I have coloured in pinks and purples using my Copics.




I used a kind of fish tank Silhouette file from Sandras scrap shop and I have decorated with various sea themed dies from my stash.

Science Nerd


For this weeks DIGI CHOOSDAY project, I have made a Fathers day card for my son to give to Hubby.

The image is 'Science Nerd' from Work & Play 12.  The paper is also from this collection.



The image was coloured with Copics and then I found a Periodic tables font, which I used to spell out Dad.

We would love to see your entries in our ANYTHING GOES challenge and there is always the chance to win a prize.

Zodiac Sprites

This week I have been working on the sweetest new Showcase for Aurora Wings, three adorable Zodiac Sprites, although there are four in the new release.

First up is my star sign ARIES, this cute little ram has been coloured with Copics and the frame is cut on my Silhouette Cameo, as are all the frames on this trio of cards.


 Next up is TAURUS the bull, also coloured with Copics.

Finally CANCER, who orginally i was going to colour the conventional red/orange, but then I remembered a TV show where I had seen blue crabs, so I looked it up on google and sure enough there was a crab with blue and purple legs, so here is my little blue guy.


There is so much beautiful inspiration from my team mates over on the Showcase Blog, you really should take a peek, you will also find some inspiration for the fourth sprite GEMINI over there.

And look some handy discount codes :)

Good Luck


It’s time for a new DIGI CHOOSDAY DT project and this week I have made a Good Luck card/gift box.

The image I have used is Ruby from Ruby Big Value Download and coloured her with Copics.

The base is a file from the silhoutte store, which I have covered with papers from Winnie Special Moments.



I wanted to use my new Foil Quill on the design, so firstly I took some flowers from the Winnie Special Moments collection and did an inner offset on my cameo to edge in rose gold foil.


I used the same colour foil for the 'Good Luck' sentiment.
