Polkadoodles Week 23 challenge-Nursery Rhymes

Heres my card for this weeks challenge.I have made a easel card using a Lily boo image for fathers day.The nursey rhyme I thought off was " 1,2,3,4,5, Once I caught a fish alive" I think this is the name of it :)
I used some backing papers off of paper boutique cd rom and the sentiments are from the freebie the other week.This image is from the "Boys circle " set at they are in the middle of a move at the moment so be patient but Im sure theres some new links on there.I coloured the image using copic pens and also my neglected whisper pens :( .
I finished it off by glossy accenting the water and fish so they look all wet.So pop over to and see what the very talented DT have created for this challenge.Hope you like.

Heres another creation I made today,this one is for Uk cricut messageboard and my first time at .The challenge on the Cricut MB was to use the invitation cut from Wild card cart and for the sirstampalot challenge was to use a punch.

I cut the invitation card in a lovely pale green card and used some new paper I got in do crafts goodie bag.It has a bit of glitter added to each spot.I then punched down each side of it with my pretty flower punch from readicut.

I cut the butterfly from Serenade cart and then cut the layer of it with some pretty crafters companion paper.I added a butterfly peel off border and some pretty ittle gems on the butterflies wings.Then I added the usual inking and doodling to finish it off.Hope you like.

Cute challenge card

Hi Everyone lovely sunny day here so I have been down in my craft shed creating.I won a cd-rom and a set of stamps from a Polkadoodle challenge so have been using them today.This card is for two challenges: which this week is Sew and Sew which you have to put some sort of sewing on your creation wherther its fake made with your pen or real with your sewing machine or even a stamp.And the other challenge is this is my first time entering one of their challenges and this week you have to use dry embossing on your card.
So.....the image I got from meljens its one of their freebies,isnt he sooooo cute and also he looks like he's sewn so it fits into the polkadoodle challenge even better.I coloured him with whisper pens,the background papers are from paper boutique cd-rom from polkadoodles.I faked my stitching on my card as I really dont know how to use sewing machines.I embossed the background paper with divine swirls and the little yellow strip I used the polkadots embossing folder.Well Im off to enjoy the sunshine and watch the kids in the pool.Hope you like.
