Friday Polkadoodles Challenge

OMGosh! With the week I’ve had I completely forgot to add the text to my post for this morning. To anyone who has already seen this, I do apologize. This week’s challenge is to use one of Nikky’s templates to make a shaped card. I chose the apron. All of my close friends will get a big chuckle out of this as they know that DH does all of the cooking and the baking in our house and the chance of me having a holiday cupcake exchange are about as good as me winning the lottery-LOL!

All of my papers are from the new Creative Christmas CD. I put the main part of the apron on the top fold of the card and cut it out adding the pockets and over mitts and then inserted the ribbon between the patterned paper of the apron and the card to make the neckpiece. I added some faux stitching around the body and pockets, a couple of computer-generated sentiments and a cupcake from the Sugar Birdies CD (colored with Prismas and OMS). Lastly I found the cute little chipboard badge in my stash that says Great Baker (kind if hard to see in the pic) and put it on the top pocket. Please hop over to the challenge blog to join in this week’s challenge. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.
