Some exciting news!

Good evening all - and a very big warm welcome to my new followers and thank you for taking the time to join me on my crafting escapades!  And it's definitely a 'warm' welcome, particularly to all in the UK - hope that you're not snowed in (unless it's with a warm fire and with lots of crafting goodies and chocolate on hand lol!).  And thank you for all your good wishes regarding my Grumpy Princess Poppy! Yes, the grumpy cat is back in residence after two nights on a drip at the vets (not her idea of a pleasant sleepover!). Apparently she has kidney disease (not sure whether that contributes to the grumpy expression lol!) but now has to have medication every day and a special diet. Thankfully she quite likes the tablets (some clever person has developed a palatable tablet) as I didn't fancy having to perform wrestling moves every morning and up to now she quite likes the food too - so keep your fingers crossed! We'll be back at the vets in a week for a check up, then it'll be regular blood tests, etc. Don't you just love kids and pets (££££££!).

But aside from all that, I just wanted to share some exciting crafty news with you. I was very flattered and thrilled to be asked to join the design team for Polkadoodles - which needless to say I was delighted to accept!  Nikky produces some fabulous crafting artwork and I'm so excited about working with some of her designs.  Just thought I'd share a quick card with you today made with some fab Polkadoodles artwork

I've coloured the tree with promarkers. 
Hope you like it and I hope that you'll pop over to the Polkadoodles shop and have a browse through some of the gorgeous crafting goodies on offer! 
Shop here!
I'll be back soon, 
Keep warm,

  7. Great card, I do like polkadoodles, enjoy your DT. Glad your princess is on the mend, there was a warning out today on TV saying that people should wash their pet's paws when they have been near the roadside due to salt etc in the grit that is sprayed. xx Flora
