Happy Friday!

Well it's Friday and time for another Polkadoodle Challenge. My Grandmother passed away a couple of weeks ago and I've been gone. We had a wonderful celebration of her 100+ years of life. So I'm back from the "hot and humid" of the midwest to the "it's a dry heat" of Arizona. Also, it's my turn to host over ot Polkadoodles this week and I set the theme of Christmas in July - maybe it will cool us all off a bit - if only mentally!

My card is made using the wreath template from the brand new Creative Christmas CD. The CD is full of templates that can be used to make shaped cards or (as I did here) used for toppers on regular sized cards A4-A6. I used some stitched papers for my background (from last years Jingle Jangle CD) and also added a little birdy colored with Prismas and OMS.

I hope you'll come over to Polkadoodles and play along with us this week. There is a huge announcement and fabulous prizes for a mega-coloring contest. So if you're really into markers or any kind of coloring I suggest you go and get the details.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss, Kris. Even 100 years is not enough with a loved one.
