Whoo Hoo...Polkadoodles Horace & Boo Launch Party!

Hellooooo! How are you? Happy Easter everyone! 

Well I’ve just popped in to introduce you to a gorgeous new addition to the Polkadoodles family and their names are HORACE & BOO!  A CAT AND A DOG!!!!! OMG!! They are just too gorgeous and as you may know I am a pet owner (I have 3 dogs and not all that long ago 3 cats too) I was ecstatic when I saw these images.  

We have a FB launch party to celebrate the introduction of this fabulous new couple and it is currently in full swing, so pop over to our Facebook groups, POLKADOODLES CRAFTING, DIGI CHOOSDAY & COLOUR CRAZY and join us.  It’s here that you will be able to drool over the truly AWESOME projects the DT has made.

Ok so my first make sees HORACE & BOO off to a party! I decided to merge the dog house, tree, grass and clouds from the embellies section of the bundle to create a scene and then print out in greyscale.  I then coloured our sweet duo to match.
I suppose I based them on my pets past and present…sort of.  Horace could be my black Labrador and Boo is my cat Jack who we lost a couple of years ago.  That’s what I’m saying anyway.
So party on over to our Facebook groups, POLKADOODLES CRAFTING, DIGI CHOOSDAY & COLOUR CRAZY and join in with our wonderful launch party.  It’s here that you will be able to see some of the amazing projects the DT has made to inspire you.
