Hello folks, well have you been Zentangled? I had never heard of it until last week when I saw a fabulous card made by a fellow card maker Stella which she had used the Zentangle technique.
When I was back in my final year of school in 1974, all my projects and exam pieces were on an "Optical Art" theme! Which today is very much like Zentangling! So I thought I would have a go on two images of Emma Cannings which available on her CD Rom and from Polkadoodles.co.uk. I used a very fine nibbed fibre pen to do my zentangling. I hope you like how they have turned out. I think they are rather Groovy!!

Hello again, from a very wet and windy Germany!! Where is the Spring/Summer??? But I must say that it is good for crafting on days like this.
I am a bit late with my Design Team Challenge this week, I really have no excuses! So here it is!
I chose an image from Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD Rom available www.polkadoodles.co.uk
and created a sentiment saying "I Welly love you". I added ribbon, a bow, die cut flowers, butterflies and border and buttons. Used backing papers from the CD and cardstock from my crafty stash!

Hi, this is one of my favourite digis from Sherry Baldy. I coloured this lovely image using Graph it Markers www.polkadoodles.co.uk and added a little bit of glitter of course. I am in Kraft cardstock making mood at the moment, so I used a kraft card base, added some floral card stock and inked the edges usings Tim Holtz distressed inks. Cut out a scalloped circle from Spellbinders, matted the image on another piece of floral cardstock, die cut some snowdrops from Spellbinders, tied with string, added some vintage lace and a sentiment. There she is, pretty as a picture!

Hello from very rainy Germany! Here is my May challenge card for Flatfriendsblogspot.com. The theme is punches so I picked one of Emma Canning' d new designs, available from www.polkadoodle.co.uk and coloured her in with Graph it marker pens, added a little detail to the card on the image. Matted the image on pink card stock and used a Martha Stewart punch (around the page) to edge it. Then chose some papers from the Pen & Paper No.5 CD Rom from www.polkadoodles.co.uk matted them on kraft cardstock added a bow and a die cut flower border. There you have it!
