SD Challenge 19: Polka Dots

A very happy Saturday to all! We are having wonderful sunny weather and it is actaully a good day to be working in the garden. But who wants to work in the garden when you can craft :-)

There is a new challenge over at Sunflowers and Dragonflies - this time the theme is Polka Dots! Pop on over and have a look at what the DT has come up with - there are some real beauties. This weeks prize is two cute stamps - White Rabbit and Cheshire Cat.

In a previous post I mentioned that I had to make some more Xmas cards for my daughter. And without knowing about this challenge, I used some polka dot paper! I had this paper for quite some time and when she picked the base card paper, I so hoped that this red and creamy colored paper would match it. Well, it did perfectly. She picked the stamps and colors. The nativity scene stamp is from Great Impressions and the word stamp is from Country Crafts (formerly Best Rubber Stamps) - both are local stamp companies. The card size is 15 x 15cm and the instructions were for it to be flat, no 3D, and with only a little bling. She contacted me last night to say that she received the cards and that she is very happy with it.

So, that's another entry to a challenge. Keep your fingers crossed for me - I just love the Sunflowers and Dragonflies stamps and would love to own these two beauties. Maybe I should start working on another entry :-)

Thanks so much for visiting!

Have a wonderful and creative weekend.

  7. Oh! A polka dot challenge! I love polka dots. Your polka dot paper certainly does match the cardstock perfectly. Love the textured paper, too. Embossing is so wonderful because it makes a pretty picture even without coloring. An elegant touch! Good luck with those challenges!
