Polkadoodles Challenge - Week 12

Morning Folks and it's Friday already and that means time for another fabby challenge from Polkadoodles and this week we have our lovely new DT girls joining in the fun.....why don't you pop over....say hello and make them feel welcome.
The challenge this week is a sketch from our fabby boss lady...Nikky and I do love a good sketch....now I wasn't entirely sure I was going to get a card made this week......as you know I am betwixt and between craft rooms... in other words in a right old guddle....but I pulled out all the stops on Wednesday night and worked until my little eyelids wouldn't stay open any longer and it's beginning to come together and this is the very first card I made in my new cubbyhole.....me thinks I need to get out more....yikes when the most excitement in your life....well enough said....

Papers & Image: Candy Doodles CD
Flower: Freddie's Stackies
Ribbon: American Crafts
Sentiment: Hero Arts..."Hey Little Birdie" Clear Stamp Set
And talking of birdies....a little toot....have you seen this new mag.....CARDS....it's fabulous and one that you would be proud to leave lying on your coffee table....chocca full of gorgeous cards....OK a little bit pricey at £5.99 but believe me....it is jam packed with inspiration and just a couple of pages of advertising
and guess who has a card featured this month.....yes yours truly
 
and if you look closely..who am I sharing the page with ..my lovely mega talented bloggy buddy and fellow Distress Ink addict.....Kim P...believe me I couldn't have chosen a nicer lady to sit alongside and a big thank you to all those who spotted it and left me a comment to let me know....I had no idea it was in this month's issue until Carol gave me the nod....and boy did I have to hunt high and low to get a copy finally tracking the blighter down at Tesco Extra.
Oops before I forget.... we have a little treat for you today over at Polkadoodles.....our lovely Lou who is Guest Designer for August has put together a fab tutorial for the cutest little Circle Bag using this week's sketch and all in the midst of her holiday preparations...to check it out click HERE.   Well that's it for today folks...look forward to seeing what you all create for this week's challenge and will be back as usual tomorrow for another fabulous challenge on Penny Black Saturday.
Hugs Kath xxxxxx

Kat said...

Fantastic card Kath. I so love that flower. I must look out for that magazine, it sounds good. I got lovely mag at Just Create but I can only look at the piccies cos I think it is in Dutch!! Lovely piccies tho.
Thanks for lovely comment on my blog. I live near Ellon but actually closer to Hatton which is half way between Ellon and Peterhead. I love the sound of your dog. Wish I could train my chocolate Lab to sit on my feet in the winter!!

methinks that you do a delightful job -- even when your eyelids are nearly closed! Congratulations of your publication. Awesome!

Unfading Spring said...

Hi Kath, another WOW card again. so pleased you tracked down the mag. Hope more people buy it as I think it is struggling to sell(so a little bird told me)but I think it is worth the extra cost, I have been buying it from day one. Thanks for remembering me in your blog post. You are the best.

Had a great time yesterday at the wedding, photos to follow soon.

Hugs Carol x
