Pollycraft Challenge *3* DT News and other bits!!

Gosh 2 weeks goes fast!!
Doesn't seem 5 minutes since I was doing my post for the last challenge!!

This time the challenge over at POLLYCRAFT MONDAY CHALLENGE has been set by the wonderful POPPET

And the challenge is to use at least 3 circles in your project....

Hmmmm...I've got to admit this one scared me a bit, cos I'm not really one for circles.... however I think its a fab challenge, and I loved making my card....

and here it is.....
I've used the Colour it yourself santa with gift and coloured him with promarkers.... The backing papers are DCWV and I've used sandpaper to 'distress' the edges... the flourish circle stamp is from the new From The Heart Range.I've cut it out and doodled the sentiment, then coloured the inner circle with promarkers, and also added a bit of the same colour to the edge. For the top circle, I used the same stamp again, but cut off most of the swirls, then just added a bit of colour with promarkers, punched a smaller circle from more DCWV papers, and added a button.
So I think I've covered the circles!!!

Hope you will join us again for this challenge...... hop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's work..... all fab as usual...

Plus.... you may notice we have a newbie!!!

Another Emma!! (now known as EmmaW... whether she likes it or not!!)

Emma is now a fully fledged Pollycraft DT member... we hope you will make her feel welcome, and pop over to her blog to see her fantastic creations.....

Now then...I've got a bone to pick with you all.......

The From the Heart Winter Elves stamps seem to be a bit of a hit with lots of you ...... I've had one stamp from the range sell out already, and 3 more are now getting very close.....
I'm seeing some absolutely stunning cards using these images on lots of your blogs.... but one little guy is NOT getting any of the limelight......
So I'm giving him his little bit of fame..... cos he is my favourite........


For this card i've used the adornment stamp and coloured him with promarkers. The papers are (once again) DCWV and sandpapered edges... I've also circle punched into the corners...
Ribbon and star brad are from stash.... and the sentiment is a special little suprise I'm going to be sharing with you later this week.......
a bit of doodling.....I dont think I doodle enough....LOL! and we're done.....
right, I feel better now!
Just so you all know.... as I know there are one or two... or more.... of you eagerly awaiting more stock of the 'reflection' stamp ... if you pop over to the shop and sign up for the newsletter, I will notify you when more are added..... It will almost definately be this week.
Thanks for looking...
