Pollycraft Monday Challenge #129 - Teenage Dream

Good morning all - hope you've had a good weekend? Nothing very exciting going on in the White house - the boys got their hair cut and went to the football with their dad. I went shopping with my mum in the afternoon which, of course, involved a latte/big cake stop!!

Well it's my turn to set this week's Pollycraft challenge and as I was listening to Katy Perry at the time I decided on:

so we want to see anything teenage! Paula has some fantastic teen images available so if you're stuck pop over the Pollycraft for a look.

Does it every happen to you that you picture a design for a card in your head but when it comes to transferring that into a card it doesn't quite seem the same?? Well, I feel this way about this card!

The papers are Rusty Pickle Pop Star and the guitarist is Luna Bitterfrost Guitars Rock. The guitar is hand cut, I even managed strings on it!!

We are delighted to be sponsored this week by Letraset who is offering the lucky winner 5 pack of Promarkers.

Please remember to check out the DTs fab cards and I hope we inspire you to join us this week!

CES Challenge #74 - Blues and Creams

Good evening - yip sooo late again! By the time I had finished my card last night (!) it was too dark to take a photo so it had to wait today. I did take the photo just before lunch (honest!) but then I had to meet my mum in town.

So, this week's challenge is a colour one set by Julie and we want to see:

Now, it can be any shade of blue but there must be cream on there! Simples!

Here is my card using the totally lush MME Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks available from Crafty Emma's Store:

The image is a LOTV ready coloured image (fab for those late cards lol!), the sentiment is Kanban. The card blank and some of flowers are from Crafty Emma's.

As always, one lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher (excl P&P) from Crafty Emma's Store to spend on some fantastic new stock - so what are you waiting for?

As always my talented teamies have made fab creations so please make sure you check them out! I hope we inspire you to join us this week!

Pollycraft Monday Challenge #128 - Ribbons and Buttons

Good morning - is it really Monday already?? Boys are still off today but I'm back at work. Have you checked out the newest girl on the Pollycraft block - Celeste Amberglow - the DT are loving her!

Lynsey has chosen this week's theme:

Now, I will admit when I made my card I thought the theme was Buttons and Bows - d'oh. Luckily I do have the tiniest of ribbon on this card! Also, due to an adhesive malfunction the buttons are hiding under some card candi, lol!

The papers are the delish MME "Love Me", the image is the new Celeste Amberglow Heartstrings. The card candi and sentiment are from Crafty Emma's Store. I think the pink buttons were a freebie in a craft magazine.

Now, what is this week's prize? I hear you ask? Well, Pollycraft is offering 10 digis - that allows you to get all the Celeste Amberglow digis!


So please do join us this week!

I know it's Friday but I just couldn't keep this to myself! The magnificent Paula over at Pollycraft has created:

and she is fantastic! My fellow teamies have had fab fun creating with this cutie (there are 6 images in total) so please check out their blogs to see their creations!

Pollycraft Monday Challenge #127 - Reds, Pinks and Creams

Yip, as you have probably noticed it is Tuesday, not Monday - this is entirely my fault, as usual! I did mean to write and schedule this on Sunday night, but I had marking to do (yuck) and got watching "Call the Midwife" and before I knew it it was my bedtime! And Monday just passed in a blur!!

So, this week's challenge has been chosen by Arabella, and is the slightly challenging:

I can say that DT did find this an interesting theme to work with! Here's my interpretation using Pollycraft's Chester in Love:

The papers are the very lush MME "Love Me" and were perfect for this challenge. The felt heart ribbon is from Hobbycraft and everything else was lurking in my stash!

We are delighted to be sponsored this week by:

who is offering our lucky winner £10 voucher to spend!

So please do check out my teamies wonderful creations and I hope we inspire you to join us this week!

CES Challenge #72 - Lots of Layers - 3 or more!

Hope you're all having a good weekend so far! The White family has been doing our usual Saturday morning stuff - nipping into town, having a coffee then the boys try to spend their pocket money on rubbish!

Over at CES this week, Karen has picked the theme of:

Fab challenge to work with, especially if you don't do clean and simple like me! This is usually because I have such yummy papers from Crafty Emma's Store that I want to use them all!

The papers are the very delish First Edition "New Leaf" available from Crafty Emma's Store along with the Card Candi. I made the pins from some beads and the seam binding was in my stash. The image is from ebay and I thought it was quite quirky!

The lucky winner for this challenge will receive a £10 voucher (exc P&P) for Crafty Emma's Store and you'll be spoilt for choice on how to spend it!

So please check out my lovely teamies blogs and I hope we inspire you to join us this week!

Pollycraft Monday #126 - Chill Out!

Well quite a few parts of the UK are chilling out today due to snow fall - none up here in central Scotland yet (thank goodness!). It's been quite a quiet weekend, hubby and the boys were going to go to watch footbally in Ayr on Saturday but it was called off - as a result I had their company all afternoon instead (feeble yeah!) and on Sunday we took them to softplay to run them ragged - did it work? Did it heck!

Anyway, loved looking at all your favourites last week! This week's theme has been picked by Anita and is:

You could interpret this as chilling out or by colours - the possibilities are endless.

So here is my offering - it is very plain, having put all my christmassy/wintery stash away in loft!

So the little fella is Swings and Slides Merry Christmas Snowballs and is available from Pollycraft here. The papers are First Edition Up, Up and Away and the pom poms are from my stash.

We are delighted to be sponsored this week by My Mums Craft Shop who are offering £10 voucher to the lucky winner. Also if you use a Pollycraft image and picked as a favourite you will get another Pollycraft image of your choice, for free!!

So what are you waiting for?!! We hope we inspire you to join us this week.
