Hello from the Heart

Hello from the Heart (2)

Happy Friday! Thank goodness it’s nearly the weekend it’s been a long week. Anyhoo, before I dash off to do the last school run of the week I thought I would pop on and share a little Polkadoodles sweetness today.

I fell in love with the Lily Bug Love Download Kit as soon as I saw it. The papers, theme and colours are just so me. Here’s my make:

Hello from the Heart (1)

Quite a simple layout from me, but rather a lot of fussy cutting……worth it though!

A-Z (2)

Evening all. Did you see earlier in the month the fabulous new releases that Wendy has for us? If not here is a quick recap: ABC, A Splash of Autumn Colour, My Time to Shine and Warm Hands Warm Heart and they can all be found in the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop.

I already had a play with the fabulous My Time to Shine for inspiration over in the All Dressed Up FB Group. So today, I’m sharing some extra inspiration with a project featured over on the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog and using ABC:

My wonderful teammate Andrea shared a gorgeous card using the whole image, so I thought I would chop it up and use it for a new baby card.

Ready, Steady, Go!

Runner (2) 

Happy Saturday everyone! And first off a little apology….Mr Blogger isn’t playing so nice with me at the moment. My posts aren’t appearing when they should! Even when I post on the spot rather than schedule them it can still take hours, days even, for them to appear. Any one else having problems? I do have a WordPress account so it might be time to think about moving the blog!! 

Anyhoo, I’m here to share a little Polkadoodles loveliness today. And it’s a little later in the week than normal as I waited until I had given it to the recipient……..not that she reads my blog though!  I’ve been having a play with the super adorable Female Runner Download.  It’s also part of the bigger Work & Play 12 collection but I wanted to make a birthday card specifically for someone who loves running and this little download was perfect. It has some matching papers as well!

Now that Miss 3 is at Pre-School in the morning I’m doing the walk to school three times a day and it’s taking me a while to settle into the new routine. I had printed the uncoloured version of this image but just ran of time (and energy) so thank goodness the kit includes a pre-coloured digi!
