Happy Birthday to Us!!
TODAY IS POLKADOODLES FIFTH BIRTHDAY - WOOHOOO!!!
Firstly, if you arrived here from Kath's blog as part of the blog hop, then you're in the right place!
I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank all of you for supporting Polka Doodles over the past 5 years, we've seen so many changes in the industry and we still love what we do and get such a thrill with every new product we release. It's so awesome that all of you keep on supporting us along the way and we know that we wouldn't be here without that great support. I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Nikky and Kris, for being brave enough to let me join the Polka Doodles team 5 years ago!
We thought we needed something special to celebrate our 5th Birthday.... so Nikky decided to celebrate by designing a special Digistamp for each of us 5 'Originals' along with a great little paper bundle (which was also designed specifically for each teamie to co-ordinate with their kind of stylee). They are TOO stinking cute!!
So, we are inviting you along to our mini Blog Hop which is just between the 5 of us and to tempt you along we all have awesome free candy which we all have on our blogs for you, but ALSO watch out along the way as we have some fantastic free downloads up for grabs for you too but you can ONLY get these by doing the hop because you need to collect the free codes!
Here's a little taster of the collections, this one is mine and I really love me LOL!!
READ ON TO FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THIS BUNDLE FOR FREE!...
Here is what I created with this lovely freebie...
I was very nervous to see what Nikky created but have to say, adored ME straight away ... hee, hee, hee. Working in a primary school and being the Art and DT Co-ordinator, I have kept a "school" theme to my card. I have coloured the image with my Promarkers, cut me out and then raised me off the front of my card with 3D gel.
For my background, I have used 2 of the papers, layering them on to a graphite coloured card base. The smaller panel is covered in stars (Sizzex die) with the numbers 1, 2, 3 , 4 and of course 5 featuring on my card (Thicker glitter stickers). I have added extra highlights to the 5 with brackets and star gems.
The sentiment is from the Oriental Dreams CD and just adore the wording which I think fits beautifully with Polka Doodles celebration, as I too, want to say thank you to Nikky (for letting me join the PD DT and then keeping me on it for the last 5 years ..... what a brave lady)!
Now I have candy to offer too for 3 lucky randomly chosen winners .....
