Can you believe its August already? where is this year going to? and those of you with children ... wishing it was September already lol??

Before I show you my card for this weeks Polkadoodle challenge have you seen the competition Nikky and Polkadoodles are hosting at the moment. OMG!!! I so want to enter but cant *sob* but you could win a whole set of letraset's gorgeous aquamarkers. Also just to get us into the colouring mood for the last few weeks Nikky has been posting the most brilliant tutorials on the blog to help you with your colouring. If you havent done already run over and have a look!

These week at polkadoodles its all a bit sketchy! Kerry designed us a great sketch to work from. I must admit it was a first for me as I havent worked from a sketch before.....

For my card I used two of the gorgeous backing papers from Paper Boutique Vol2 : Creative Christmas. I love that this CD has both traditional and funky on it. I also used one of the sentiments from the CD.

I then printed the A6 poinsetta template onto Freezer paper (a quilting transfer paper stuff) which i used to cut out my felt flowers. I used a circle punch to make centres, glued them together and added some glitter to the centres and the edges of the petals.

I then stamped one of my favourite Stamp Doodles - the prim angel, coloured her with promarkers to match the papers and added, what else but more glitter. and 3D mounted her in the corner.

And there you go a quick and simple christmas card .... and its only August pretty cool huh!
