Lily Bug Love (Snug as a Bug) - Polkadoodles - Part Two

Helllooooo there.
I'm  back again to show case the wonderfully cute Lily Bug Love collection  with my second make of the day.  This time I've done a little bit of decoupage.

I used Do Crafts Digital Designer for the base of the  8x8 card and merged everything from the collection including the papers and the sentiments and then printed out the Lily Bug Love Big Heart coloured digi a few times and decoupaged her and then added a bit of glossy accents on her wings and some glamour dust and then finished the card off with a couple of cute pinky buttons and a length of satin ribbon and a big crystal heart.

Mum & Dad's Anniversary Card - Polkadoodles Colour Therapy Alphabet

Hello folks

Happy Saturday to you all.

Well last week for the Digi Choosday Stitching Challenge I created an embroidered picture as a gift for my mum and dad for their wedding anniversary and I decided at the same time I would make them a matching card using the same Colour Therapy alphabet.  All the thumb linkies below link to Polkadoodles and to all the Colour Therapy collections available from big kits available on CD and download to individual sets of three and individual alphabets and the ever so popular Colour Therapy Colouring Club.

This is the card I created.

I mixed the Colour Therapy Collection with papers from the Rose Budd Collection just to show you that it's easy to mix and match the collections.

Here's the ingredients I used:
Liquid Pearls - White Opal 8 x 8 card base Pink Card for matting and layering White lace Versa Magic Chalk Ink in Jumbo Java for the edges Cosmic Drawing Inks Wink of Stella in Clear Glitter Graph It Pens - 5115, 3280, 8280
Hope you like my make

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 4 - In Bloom

Hello everybody             
It’s Digi Choosday day again. These Tuesdays definitely come round really fast!!
Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.
This week our challenge is  ‘IN BLOOM’.
I love searching the internet for new things to make and also getting inspiration and as soon as I saw the craze for making teacup art I instantly knew that this week’s challenge would fit this project perfectly.  I had a teacup that had a wonderful soy candle in it and was wondering what I could make with the empty cup.  Here is a step by step picture tutorial of my make (with the exception of one ingredient which is magic and you'll have to scroll to the bottom of my blog post to find out what it is).  I resized and printed some of the flowers from the Eden Collection and put them to one side.  I gathered my ingredients...  cup and saucer, bird cage, toadstools and reindeer moss and then using the magic ingredient started to assemble my make.

I then added the flowers and…
