Stashbox Stamp Week ?!?!?

Welcome to another Friday and a Polka Doodle challenge! Enfys set the challenge for this week and the Polka Doodle team have a new element to the challenge too this week, which we are going to make a regular feature once a month. We are calling it Stashbox Stamp Week, which basically means that we can dig out our favourite stamps and use them with our Polkadoodle papers and pretties. Of course, our favourite stamp may well be a Polka Doodles one...but that's okay too. Enfys also made one more stipulation - two ribbons and a charm (it can be home made with shrinky dink, threaded beads, or whatever takes your fancy).

I made 2 cards for this weeks challenge . . . one for a boy and one for a girl!

I have used a set of stamps from "My Favourite Things" and all the papers are from the Paper Boutique Volume 3 CD. The images have been paper pieced an covered in Crystal Lacquer for added "shine"! Pleated ribbon is made from paper and additional ribbon(s) from stash.

Unfortunately I couldn't find a charm or any shrink plastic to make one . . . . and local craft shop didn't have any shrink plastic either . . . so have used a glitter bead thing as my charm. I made a "boy" and "girl" card using the same paper designs just changing the background paper to co-ordinate with my dinosaur.

Well this has taken nearly 2 days to upload as we are having severe computer problems . . . will be back later (fingers crossed).
