I've made this card for this week's Polkadoodles challenge and blog hop. All the papers and images are from their lovely Sundae of Seasons CD, with some Cuttlebug embossing, string and buttons added. The give thanks sentiment is by Nikky from Polkadoodles.

Baby Card & Jacket

I made this card and baby jacket for a neighbour who's just had a baby boy.

For the card I used papers and images from Polkadoodles, the gingham papers are from their Sugar Birdies CD, and the sentiment and baby image from their Sundae of Seasons CD.

Other stuff I used are Woodware feet brads, Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder, duck and teddy buttons and blue gingham ribbon.

I knit the baby jacket with Sirdar Snuggly Crofter Baby Fair Isle effect DK, it's really soft and lovely to knit with.

Delicious Doodles have got a brand new challenge blog and they're having a celebratory blog hop. Their first challenge is Anything Goes and I'd like to enter these into it. There's loads of prizes to be won, to find out more click on the DD name above.

C.R.A.F.T Challenge 77, Vellum

This week at C.R.A.F.T we want you to use vellum in your projects, and for my DT card I've used an image from our sponsor Sew Many Digital Stamps.

For my DT card I've used 'Bear in Stocking', coloured with Promarkers and Sakura pens. The vellum on my card is the backing paper, printed from funky Hand's Funky Christmas Time download, the baubles and sentiment are from the same download, with lots of glitter added to them.

The scalloped oval behind the bear is glitter paper embossed with the Cuttlebug Christmas Stars folder. I added some ribbon down the side and hung some jingly bells with gold thread.

This week is my last week with C.R.A.F.T, I've loved my time on the DT and wish all the team the very best of luck for the future!

C.R.A.F.T Challenge 75 Dry Embossing

This week at C.R.A.F.T the theme is Dry Embossing. Our sponsor is Claire, and the prize is three of her digital stamps of the winner's choice from her shop Hope Jacare Doodles.

The C.R.A.F.T DT used Claires lovely images for our projects, and for my card I used Hamish, who can be found along with the rest of Claire's lovely images at Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. I coloured Hamish with pencils, the backing paper and leaves are from Polkadoodle's Sundae of Seasons CD.

For the embossing I used the Cuttlebug daisy folder, and the sentiment is from a Polkadoodles stamp set.
