Hello my lovelies. I just wanted to post my card for the latest Emma Cannings Flat Friends Challenge Blog. The theme is friendship and I have used an image from the amazing Polka Doodles "Digistamp Heaven" featuring our lovely Emma Canning's designs. I really love this image with the little boy opening his pressie to find a little furry friend puppy!!!!. There are some amazing images on the CD covering so many celebration themes. Here is my card!!!.

I kept it fairy simple using backing paper from the Polka Doodles Pretty Tough CD. The gorgeous banner and image is of course from the Digistamp Heaven CD. I have coloured my images with Flexmarkers and added some Stickles Glitter Glue on the pressie box. I have shaded around the image with Pebbles chalks and finished off with Kaisercraft blue bling. 

If you want to get your hands on this amazing CD at just £9.99 just pop over to the Polka Doodles shop. To play along with the lovely Emma Canning challenges just click HERE!!!!

Thank you for stopping by my lovely friends.

Hello to all of my friends. Just would like to apologise for my lack of blogging of late. It's the usual thing with my RA so I won't go on about it. I have actually been quite busy behind the scenes as well but I have not been able to share some of my DT work up until now. I just wanted to share 3 cards with you made with the newly released Polka Doodles CD Digistamp Heaven featuring the very talented Emma Canning. The CD has been released at the GNPE at Harrogate show this weekend and is going down a storm. The CD features over 150 black & white digi images by Emma Canning who has been working alongside Polka Doodles for the last 6 months. 

There are so many designs on the CD for all types of occasions and include lots of sentiments too. If you want more information or would like to buy your copy go to the shop link HERE. You will also get to see all of the things that Nikky has going on right now including her events diary and new products available in the shop!!!!. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my friends. Again I am so sorry that I have been such a bad blogger of late.

Big hugs Clare xxxx

No not me but that is the theme for this weeks Polka Doodles challenge. We were asked to add distressing to our projects and this was what I came up with this week using the gorgeous Back to Nature CD.



For my card base I used Kraft card which I love to use for distressing. I used my Tim Holts distressing tool around the edges of my card and where I have layered edges. I have used Antique Linen Distress Ink Pad and Stickles Glitter Glue to spruce up my card. 

Don't forget Nikky still has her CD sale going on at the Polka Doodles Store. There are brand new stamps and also a list of Nikky's classes throughout March to May. Check it all out HERE.

Hope everyone of my friends are keeping well. Thank you for stopping by!!!!

Big hugs Clare xxxx
