That is the challenge for this week over at POLKA DOODLES!!!. Really enjoyed this challenge as it really gets you looking around the house searching for those things to use. Here are my makes;

You all know how much I love my furbabies and a regular treat for them is a box of cat grass. The box is made of a good thick card and comes apart to good sized piece which can be used to alter. I had enough to make these three bookmarks. I cut them to size and covered the card with this yummy polka dot card from the Polka Doodles PRETTY TUFF CD. I used the three gorgeous images from EMMA CANNING which are PaigeMillie & Summer. The sentiment is from STUDIO 12 PICKNIX COLLECTION 1 CD. I coloured the images with PROMARKERS and distressed edges with Tim Holtz BRUSHED CORDUROY INK PAD. The pretty red beads are DOODLE DEWDROPS. All of these above items can be purchased from the Polka Doodles shop HERE.
The ribbon was from my stash and the gorgeous ribbon border punch is by Stampin Up.

I would love it if all of my friends would play along this week. Remember you do not have to use Polka Doodles items to play along. Just follow the challenge to win some awesome prizes!!!. 

Have a wonderful weekend.
Big hugs Clare xxx
