Its all go at Polkadoodles!

Well howdy there folks.

Its all go here! More a case of go here, go there, go everywhere! Maybe if I split myself in two I might manage a touch better....

Still while I'm fathoming that pop over to Polkadoodles where a fab new challenge has started. This week its a sketch - oops forgot to pop it on and you can use a stashbox stamp. As always a fab prize is up for grabs.

I've used one of my new Magnolias - isn't she sweet? I've used a mix of various Polkadoodle papers. I went straight for the spots - I lubs them!

So there she is.... now I have to admit my interpretation of the sketch is.... sketchy! lol

A little arty shot of my flower. Now I had a rummage round for a flower in a creamy colour and there were only some squished primas.... a touch of glue and voilĂ  a carnation!

New one at TG!

Hey no one faint!

Its me again! I'm getting like a bus... you know you wait for ages and nothing and then all of sudden they all come along together! It would appear (keeps your fingers crossed here) that Mojo has made an appearance! Way hey! Actually I think Mojo was buried under the Christmas Mince Pie mountain. Fortunately that's now cleared so Mojo is feeling better. I hope he stays!

Now Mojo putting in an appearance is a god send just in time for the new challenge at Totally Gorjuss This week is a sketch (easy because I did it and I ONLY do easy). Once again we're sponsored by the super duper Joanna Sheen I think Joanna gets 11/10 for service and choice! Plus with free p and p someone will get £10 to spend on goodies - no hidden charges - plus the amount of new goodies in there.... well you'll be spoilt for choice!

So this is the sketch - easy remember ;))

And here's my take on it!

It felt odd again doing something non Christmas. Though I did make a couple of Christmas cards the other day. Knowing me though I'll have misplaced them by Christmas.

So for this one I've used one of my new magnolias which I 'accidentally' bought.... It happens you know! So I'd decided to use this Basic Grey Kyoti paper which has largely been untouched. I know how could I not use it? Well much as I love purpley colours I hardly ever ever use them! So I drew in a big breath, pulled up me big girl knickers, girded me loins.... OK I just reached for the purpley coloured Copics really...

And Ta-Daaaar! Now I have to say I was quite pleased with her. I even rather like the folds on her skirt. That was without and pencil shading too. So a couple of Doo-Hickey flourishes and some flowers. Now that's when I discovered I hardly have any purple coloured flowers! Yipes how on earth did that catastrophe happen? Trust me folks it will be remedied as soon as....that's as soon as the postman get them here ;))

I thought I'd check the current theme at Just Magnolia and hAnglar sTanglar and it was 'Anything goes' with an option of Happy New Year or something new. Well hello - new stamp!

While I was browsing I checked in at Papertake Weekly they too have an 'anything goes' theme with new options - perfect huh?

So here's the arty shot too!

Shades of grey at Polkadoodles

Yo there tis moi - again!

I know so soon after last time!

There's a new challenge just launched over at Polkadoodles Its a super duper sketch and shades of grey.

So I printed off some papers from the fantastic Pretty Tuff CD Rom I only had one problem.... which papers to choose! Its jam packed with loads of papers and stuff. So I actually think it took me longer to choose which to use. I inked up the lovely Bevvieboo She was coloured up with Copics.

Well after all that grey I thought a bit.... and just added in a bit of pink.... oh and some glitter!

Oh and I've forgotten to tell you about the prize - its a set of flexmarkers in shades of grey! How fantastic is that!

Oh no snow!

Don't panic don't panic Mr Mainwearing! Oh my life how does that TV quote age me! For those of you who don't know its from Dad's Army which is donkeys years old.... of course with me being 23 its a TV series I've only seen on repeat. At 23 I'm much too young to have even been born when the original series was on TV in black and white!

Anyway as always I digress. Don't worry the only snow is on my card! Thank goodness! Though it has turned much colder and wind - wow its awful.

So have a peek at my offering for the latest challenge over at the Creative Card Crew

So here's mine. Seeing as I'm not a fan of the white stuff mine obviously has minimal snow ;))

Sweet little Tilda carrying her love hearts inside to the Christmas Tree, which is what I do every year! She has been coloured with Copics and the papers are from MME.

This week we're sponsored by Simon says Stamp. And we're starting to choose a Top Three each challenge too!

As they say 'you got to be in it to win it'!
