Now it's been a eon since I have been able to join in with my fellow Polka Doodlers and this year I have decided that I will always take the time to participate as Nikky is very generous with her time & products and always supports her DT. Ooohhh before I forget you can see Nikky on Create and Craft TV this Saturday showing off the new Polka Doodles CD - Paper Boutique Vol 3. She has 2 live shows at noon and 3pm . . . so don't forget to watch and support her.
Now this weeks Polka Doodles Challenge was set by Emma who has asked that we design our project based upon "A wish for the New year".
My wish for this year is to always be "So Thankful" for all that I have; all the people I know (family, friends & work colleagues) . . . basically what I am saying is to always be thankful even when times are hard. I have used papers from the "All Around and Everywhere" CD and all the topper elements, flower, measuring tape and including the sentiment is from the Spring section on the "Sundae of Seasons" CD.
I have further embellished the card with sewing paraphernalia - buttons, threads, bias binding as my ribbon, wonder web for the bow and several pins!
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
JUGS - used their great sketch from last week although it has morphed a little with all the embellies but the basic sketch is still there!
Allsorts - theme "Thank You"
Phindy's Place Challenge - theme "Give thanks" however there is an added bit "to use up your scraps". My scraps are the bits and bobs that were lying around in my sewing box . . . can I classify these as scraps?
Cute Card Thursday - theme is "out with the old" and my "old bits" are the bits raided from my sewing box which I have had for ages and ages.
Totally Papercrafts- theme "say thankyou"
So happy it's Friday . . . only been back at school 4 days and feel like I haven't had a break ! !
