Ok, enough moaning! Here's the real reason for this post: a brand new Polka Doodles challenge! We're done playing with Sugar and Spice and (oh-my-word!) what gorgeous entries we've had. Tough job ahead for the DT. Picking a winner is not going to be easy. I predict many hours of squabbling among these refined ladies....woo hoo!
Let's see what you can do with this fortnight's theme: Mum's the Word. As the theme suggests, we want you to create a project for your mother or any other special lady in your life... aunt, grandmother, sister, godmother, stepmother, mother-in-law.
My project for this challenge is a commission from my 4 year old goddaughter. She describes her mummy as "soft and cuddly, warm like the sun and prettier than all the flowers in the garden". Tall order, but I found all I needed from various CDs: Bunny and ticket tags from Cherryblossom Lane, background paper from Bonbon Belles, vertical floral panel from Sugar Birdies and the layered blossom from Dolly Daydream Girl Talk.
I think she'll be pleased with the card....I hope!
|I'm keeping the design simple. She is only 4 after all... the little girl,|
not her mummy! I added the trellis as her mother is a keen gardener and
thereare quite a few in their yard.
|"My mummy is soft and cuddly, warm like the sun and prettier|
than all the flowers in the garden". I think this bunny from the
Cherry Blossom Lane CD is perfect. I coloured her with Promarkers.
and finished her with little dots of Daffodil Liquid Pearls.
|I'm leaving the inside blank. The little little girl is quite the chatterbox!|
