I'm Polka Doodle Dandy

Last Friday I couldn't join in with my teamies as "life" got in the way, so this I thought I better make up for my disappearance (and try and sneak in without Ruth noticing!!) You guessed it . . she did! The theme this week was set by Lana and is "Show some Love".

I wanted to make a love themed card but do some stamping for a change as my poor stamps are feeling neglected. So with a plan in my head . . . not always good . . . I inked up my fab Wonderland stamps to create my card.

The papers are from the matching CD, Wonderland, and the papers on there are to die for . . . a mixture of antique, grunge, distressed . . . ooohhhh they are so versatile . . . love, love, love them! If you don't have this CD, I seriously can't recommend it enough.

I have coloured all the images using the subtle shades in my Flexmarkers and Promarkers as wanted them to be "soft". A few punched hearts and gems to add to the "love" theme, finished off with a hand cut heart with netting on the side . . . don't ask me why I did this . . . it was the "plans" fault that was lurking in my head! Also used a different sized card other than square . . . DL . . . told you my "plans" were reeking havoc in my brain!

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

The Artisitic Stamper - love
Craft us Crazy - anything goes
Little Miss Muffet - Valentines or Love
The Paper Shelter - Love is in the Air
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Love is in the Air

Well I'm off to catch up with some much need blogging therapy as finally feel a little better . . . need to kick start the old mojo as its waining a little.

Have a great weekend,
