Guest Designing for Polka Doodle

Hello, I'm so excited to be showing my first Guest DT creations for Polka Doodle. I was asked by the lovely and fabulously talented Nikky, owner of Polka Doodle and it was an immediate 'Yes'. The CD's Nikky produces are sooo fab and easy to use, I really couldn't believe how much there was on the Back To Nature CD. The format is at 600 dpi which is very good! I could see instantly i was working with a super product, all print perfectly onto 120 gsm Tesco's Finest Premium Quality Printer Paper, Absolutely Fab! The theme this week is 'Song Title', I did 2, the first as it's the beginning of the year I went with 'Auld Lang Syne' (I think that's how it's spelt), love using acetate (old cracker box) in this way...just love this cute mousey 'dustin' and I've given him a friend to see in the New Year!

The second one is 'The Owl & the Pussy Cat' old childrens rhyme, did a step card with steps in the middle. Loved making this this one too, did my own measuring and cutting out twice, one for base and then another for printout page. Once they were put together i only had to cut out and stick big owl, kitty on the flower which is suppose to resemble 'pea-green boat' and all the other bits.

I'd like to thank Nikky, i feel so honoured to have been asked and really is the nicest lady to work with and so down to earth, the DT on PD do some amazing creations and they too in their own right are fantastic too. Nikky is doing ashow on Create & Craft this Sunday 10th January at 11am, don't forget to watch. I thought the New Year card could qualify for Papertake Weekly challenge, I've used some new 'dotty' ribbon and also for Cute Card Thursday 'New'. Have a good weekend all!
