Let's kick off the creative madness with a Polkadoodles challenge and being so close 4th July, it seems fitting that we play with Red, White and Blue. But instead of going all Americana with my project, I'm looking East with Miss Dollie Daydream.
With the help Dollie Daydream Goes East CD Collection, I made a birthday card with an eastern flair. This CD is chock full of tasteful oriental details - 12 Dollies, 210 papers, 30 sentiments AND embellishments, toppers, frames, borders, envelopes, inserts and so much more. And if you are an impatient so-and-so like me, immediate gratification is available in the form of Dollie Daydream Goes East Download.
|Sweet and simple. Backing paper and digis from the CD and |
a few bling-bling to add sparkle.

Now it's over to you, my friends. Create a project based on the theme "Red, White & Blue" and link it up over at Polka Doodles Challenge blog by Noon (GMT) July 11th. The winner will receive a fabulous download bundle from the Polkadoodles shop AND the Design Team's Top 3 picks will get a digi each. The identity of the lucky winners will be announced on Friday July 18th. So hurry and get crafting!
Rosie had her 2nd cycle of Doxorubicin yesterday. It hasn't been a good week for her, hence my absence from crafting and blogging. I'm a little worried that this course of chemo might make her feel worse. She's a trooper and a lot stronger than I am, so we'll see how the weekend unfolds.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. There'll be daily posts from me until July 1st. How I managed to get all of these projects done on time is beyond me! Thank heavens for coffee and chocolate! Have a lovely sunny day, my friends. See ya tomorrow?
