Cards made using the fabulous Polka Doodles

Although I have been papercrafting for a few years now it was only in about June time last year that I decided to try cd crafting.
My first purchase was the Polka Doodles Magical Winter Multibuy! Well, that then led onto Paper Boutique 1 & 2, which led onto Pretty Sweet, which led onto Pretty Tuff & Sundae of Seasons, which led onto Paper Boutique 3 and Double Sprinkles of Kraft which has led onto Candy Doodles Collectors Edition which is due to drop through my door any day now!!
It's safe to say that I love Polka Doodles products!! I also love the gallery on the website which is fab for getting ideas and recently I have discovered the Polka Doodles Facebook page which is great also!
Anyway here are some of the cards I have made so far.
Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of my Christmas Cards which was a bit daft!!

Anniversary Card

Here's a quick card I made last night for my brother in law & sister in law's wedding anniversary.
8x8 card blank with Matt silver card and silver mirri card. Words are from Kanban.
Quick, easy and simple but I like it!

Baby Giraffes

Yesterday we gave the kids a choice whether to go swimming Or to the zoo to see the new baby giraffe. Well the zoo won out so after an early lunch we headed down to Marwell zoo near Winchester.
We love it down there so much we have invested in annual passes for the past few years. Until today we were considering whether to renew them or not but seeing the kids reactions again made us realise it's definitely worth te money! They love it so much and having the annual pass means even popping down for a couple of hours is worth it!
Anyway here is a really quick iPhone pic of the new giraffe.

Photo upload test

Just found the blogger app on my iPhone so thought I'd test it out quick and also see if I can upload a pic. Hope this works!
The photo is of the Birthday card I made for my mum. The design is heavily influenced by one on the Polka Doodles website gallery. I used the Polka Doodles Pretty Sweet cd for all the elements plus a circle nestability.
