Fabulous Friday - Is it Spring yet?!

Happy Friday everyone!  The answer to the title question - Nope!  Not here in Canada anyways :-)

We are struggling to get Spring going, with temperatures warming up one day, then bitter cold the next!

Polkadoodles Challenges are now Always Anything Goes, so why not come along and enter.

Thinking of Spring always makes me think of wonderful pastel colours and pretty flowers.  For my card this week I have used the adorable Helga Hippo collection and one of the Design Sheets from this.


I added some depth to the card by placing some elements on foam tape. This Design sheet can also be purchase as a set of 2 to download, Helga Hippo Design Sheet 3 Duo Download.


For the inside of the card, I added a message panel and cut using the Polkadoodles Elegant Nesting Dies, the middle size.  My card is just 4" by 4" as I am making set of them to go in a gift box :-)


The small bottom flower, flower on her head and the teeny tiny butterfly have had some Glossy Accents added.


All the edges of all the layers have been inked.  I love using the pre-coloured elements and with the Design sheets you have everything you need to make a delightful card.

Fabulous Friday - Good Luck Vet :-)

Hi there everyone.

Oh I have had a lovely few days.  I went on a road trip last Sunday to go and see my, eldest daughter, Shannon in college. It's a 6 hour drive, but very scenic and I loved seeing Shannon.  I came back late on Thursday, although my original day was meant to be Wednesday.  There was a snow storm back home - so too dangerous on the roads.  Ah well, more Mother/Daughter time :-)

Polkadoodles challenges are now always Anything Goes, so why not come along and enter.

Shannon is just finishing her first year in college to be a Veterinary Technician and that is the reason for this card this week.  I wanted to wish her good luck with her Second Semester exams.

I couldn't resist using the vet from the wonderful Work & Play 12 collection.  You can also get this as a Mini Vet/Dog Groomer/Cat Groomer Bundle or just as the single design sheet too :-)


I love all the little paw prints and elements you get in this Design Sheet, as well as the great sentiments! 


I use one extra paper, which I printed from the Mini Bundle, to put behind the other bits and pieces.  I love making a Z fold card, and don't make them often enough :-)


For the inside message panel, I printed another paper from the Mini Bundle and then used the largest of the Polkadoodles Elegant Nesting Dies.  And added some of the left over embellishments from the Design Sheet.


Added a little dimension, to the front, with some foam tape under some of the embellishments and main image.  All the edges of all the layers have been inked too.


Shannon loved the card, as this has been her dream since she was 8 years old - another 2 years of college and she'll be out in the big wide world :-)

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Challenge #406: Ladies and Girls (closes 17 March)
