So the team are giving thanks this week and I took the opportunity to use the adorable LIL MISS SUGARPOPS COLLECTION again.  Just crazy about this bundle!

This image is called GIGGLE and I coloured her with pencils and cut her out with my Scan n Cut.  I created a background for her by digitally resizing one of the backing papers and then adding 2 of the sentiments; duplicating and changing their orientation to add interest (otherwise it would have just looked like a list LOL).  Really simple and ever so slightly CAS!

Image: GIGGLE
Colouring: Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Image, Paper & Sentiments: LIL MISS SUGARPOPS COLLECTION
Printing Paper:  ULTIMATE SMOOTH
Dies: None!!!

Good morning everybody!  Happy 4th of July to all our wonderful American friends!!!  

It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s a limited offer only!

This week the team are using a design sheet and I thought I would make a card suitable for a guy with the SCIENTIST/GEEK/STUDENT.


These sheets are absolutely perfect for those quick cards when you don’t have time to colour or go hunting around for matching bits and bobs! I did add a touch of black pencil to my scientist’s face though as he had a bit of an ‘overreaction’ with his chemicals!!

Ingredients:
Printing Card: ULTIMATE SMOOTH
Other: Black Soot DI – Black Pencil

So it doesn’t take a genius to know that you should head to THE BLOG where you can join in with our challenge and its here that you can also see all the gorgeous inspiration from the DT.   And don’t forget to grab the DISCOUNT CODE and visit the STORE  because ….
