The DT are doing Something New, now my something new is The Little Kingdom CD which is a new collection for me to work with and I just love it, all those little houses to play with , plus it would make a New Home Card and also its a new card design with a full card at the back to help it stand up and then an easel attached to the front to give some depth and dimension.

Old Bags

Hi everyone, well have a got a treat for you!!?
Yes indeedy, our Nikky at Polkadoodles has drawn some fabulous new images for those older ladies. The inspiration behind this was for the lovely Rhea at Passionate Paper Creations.

It's Rhea's 50th Birthday in December and PPC are having a surprise party week for her in the group and asked Nikky to create an Old Lady Rhea image based on her lol...this has got slightly out of hand and has ended up as this mini range of 6 because we were all laughing too much...

I've used two of these beauties which you can find here in the Polkadoodles store together with all the others.

The first is Old Bag Copics as Rhea is a copics designer and instructor so here she is.

Coloured with copics of course
Skin E04, E00, E000, E11, E21, C0
Hair E15, E13, YR23
Dress B01, B00, B000
Boots E18, E15, E11, E13
Undies R39, R29, R35

The colour palettes down each side are Rhea's go to colours.
Card blank and bunting from my crafty stash.

The second is Bag Lady, now I so had to do this one as I've had several embarrassing experiences like this, with my skirt tucked in my knickers!!. Two of which were major!!! First at a business exhibition in London when I walked from the ladies at one end of the exhibition halls to the other and secondly around a very large marina in Spain when my mobile rang and a lovely friend who owned a lingerie shop called me to ask where had we walked from as she could see us and my skirt was in my pants. Hubby of course, walking next to me hadn't even noticed. We'd walked from a restaurant at one end all the way around and it was a long way!! LOL she's was laughing her socks off and could hardly tell me what I looked like.
