Polkadoodle Challenge 2 - Free Image and Blog Hop!

It's Friday so its time for another Polkadoodle challenge!  Last week you could snag a free Emma Canning image and take part in a blog hop, and this week you can do the same, but there is a different image to snag and a different set of blogs to hop through!

So, if you've arrived at me from Margaret you're on the right track!  And very close to the end too, so I hope you liked what you've seen so far!

Don't forget that you need to use the free image and to complete the hop and leave a comment at each stop.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and cut it out with a fancy X Cut die then layered it onto some brown card I had in my stash - the edges have been glittered for a bit of bling!  The papers are from Sugarplum Daisy and I've simply inked the edges.


I found the pink and white spotty ribbon in my stash and the cupcake brad is from Do Crafts Tea Time collection.  And finally, the ticket stamp is from the Pen and Paper Circle magazine - issue 5 which is no longer available (sorry!)  But you can order Issue 6 if you're quick - last date is 14 January!!

Don't forget to leave me a comment before you hop on to Shell!

I'm also offering a lucky commenter some blog candy - I've not taken a photo of it (forgot!) but its a selection of stamped images (not digi) and I'll draw the winner of my candy once the challenge has ended.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Paper Pretties:  Brads
Inky Chicks:  Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations:  Anything Goes / A Bit of Sparkle
Forever Friends Monthly:  Birthday
Ooh La La Creations:  Happy Birthday

Image: Emma Canning freebie, coloured with Promarkers
Papers:  Polkadoodle, Sugarplum Daisy cd
Ticket:  Pen and Paper Circle Issue 5 magazine
Everything else:  My stash

  15. un modo veramente interessante per utilizzare i glitter... in genere non mi piacciono, ma in questo modo migliorano la card e hanno un effetto davvero gradevole.

    Grazie per il suggerimento creativo.
