Polkadoodles Challenge #14

Morning folks.....gee whizz it's Friday again....where did the week go and time for another challenge over at Polkadoodles.....the challenge this week is another fabby sketch from Nikky.... now I thought I would be a bit smart this week and boy did it backfire on me. I'm afraid that my inspiration seems to have done a runner and after watching Nikky demoing on Create and Craft on Monday making a fabulous tattered distressed flower......sorted I thought.....will have a go at that.....so popped my Candy Doodles CD in the drawer and am all set to print off some papers....lo and behold the old printer window appears...."low on ink".....well it's been saying that for a couple of weeks but no.....it was right and I was wrong....mega low on ink......only got 2 papers and my tattered flowers printed off......and then nothing.....wait a minute I need a third paper......


well had to improvise a little and doodle a meshy square type of thingy for my third element.....so if you are the proud owner of the Candy Doodles CD.....please don't call Nikky up and say that you can't find it....because it ain't there....and don't you just love this tattered flower and so easy to make. My first thought was this is going to be an absolute disaster.....but you know what.....I rather like it....."a happy accident" perhaps.
A big thank you to all those who left me a lovely comment on my appearance in this month's Simply Cards & Papercraft.....haven't seen it yet.....my copy didn't arrive yesterday but a lovely surprise as it wasn't due to appear until Issue 64.
Now I am not going to tempt fate just in case the old BT gremlins are listening....but my new H-M- ...H-B thingy seems to be working ... here's hoping my connection troubles are a thing of the past....just Mr Blogger to do battle with now. Off for our morning stroll and then a quick dash to replenish the old printer juice and back to get my Penny Black Saturday DT card made for this week....oh I know.....skidding in by the seat of pants again.....well I need a little excitement in my life.....catch up with you all tomorrow for another fabulous challenge from Penny Black Saturday.....Hugs Kath xxxxxxxx
