Digi Choosday Challenge –Use Some Kraft Card!

Good morning everybody!  Hope you are well?

It is Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme this time is Use Some Kraft Card! As always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   And don’t forget you could also win a Feather in Your Cap! See all the details HERE.

And if that wasn't all it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s a limited offer so be quick!!

Now one of my brothers reaches the landmark age of 50 this month and I decided, being the thoughtful sister that I am, to make him a card to remind him what an old fossil he has now become (the fact that I am 14 months older than him is COMPLETELY irrelevant!!) J

I used the fabulous STICKS AND BONES bundle to make a ‘50’ shaped card using the ‘stone’ numbers (a separate download HERE). There are some fabby alphabets in this collection and I also used one, and an ephemera piece, to create the ’50 TODAY'.  I also merged the 'Fossil' sentiment onto the egg digi. Get me!

I do ADORE this little guy and he is called GONE CLUBBING. Nikky draws the most amazingly cute characters, and his hair is awesome. I love his little knickers too (he, he). What is it about the word ‘knickers’ (tee hee) that makes the British snigger? J Anyway, you can also get him as part of a pre-coloured design sheet HERE too if you prefer. Knickers and all!! Ha!
