Enjoy your Special Day in the Summer (Polkadoodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Polkadoodles have a new challenge just started on their blog, I hope you'll join in, you don't have to use one of their products but it'd be lovely if you do. I'm loving creating with their gorgeous images, papers and sentiments.

I gave her a patterned dress using my Copic markers, I haven't tried this many times before but it's fun to give it a go. 

For my card I have used the following Polkadoodles products:

Thank you bear with rose card (Conie Fong image)

Hi crafty friends,

I can't believe how adorable these bears from Conie Fong are, I just love colouring them up. I think this is the first time I've coloured this one and I love the colour combo. I used some distress oxide inks at the bottom of the white strip just so she wasn't hanging in limbo. I added some Wink of Stella to her tutu and bow.
