The Polkadoodlers have a few little rules which makes our life a lot easier when we come visiting your blogs:

1. Please follow the challenge!
2. Only enter your creation into a maximum of 10 challenges including Polka Doodles.
3. Please link your blog post and not your blog address with the blue frog - this saves us from searching your blog for your entry.
4. And please no back-linking to previous posts - these will be disregarded from our top three voting.
5. If you have comment moderation and word verification on your blog it really does slow us down when leaving comments - please consider turning word verification off especially now that comment moderation has a spam section.

Good luck with this week's challenge - the closing date is Sunday 26 June at 12noon GMT.

Emma: Hello there, for my project I made a mini treasure chest decorated with papers and layered up some dragonflies from the Sundae of Seasons CD. I embellished with Doodle Dew Drops and liquid pearls. The sentiment is from the Sugar Birdies collectors edition CD.

D'Anne - Hello Friday! For this week's challenge I have designed a cute notepad holder using elements from the Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD-ROM. The How-To instructions can be found on my blog. Enjoy your weekend.

Inside View

Enfys: For my card this week I used two of my favourite things - the Sundae of Seasons butterflies, and my Cricut expression - I used the new cartridge Elegant Edges for the flower shape and the big scallop edge (which looks black in the photo, but is a very dark brown). I cut the butterflies out twice and popped them for dimension, and added drops of liquid pearls. I twisted the antennae out of wire

Josie: This week I used my Flutterfly Faries Stamps, I coloured with Pro Markers. I went for a nice pink theme to match with the backing papers from the Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD Rom. I added some butterflies and flowers.


Fliss: My card this week uses some of the pre-coloured images from the A Double Sprinkle Of Kraft CD which come in really handy when you're a bit short on time as I have been lately. I inked the edges of the main background paper and the cute Winnie panel and added some contrast paper, a cut out tree and butterfly and one of the lovely sentiments from the Sensational Sentiments stamp set to finish. How easy is that!

Lou: My card is using the fab butterfly image from Fairy Flutterby Babsie set. I have stamped the image 3 times, lightly coloured with glimmer mist, cut out the different layers and then covered them in Crystal Lacquer. The sentiment is from the Fairy Flutterby Maisie set. Lots of embossing and inking for my layers and a huge flower to finish. The ribbon bits added were offcuts I was too tight to throw away!

Dee: I decided to make something completely different this week, so armed with A double Sprinkles of Kraft CD, a sheet of safmat and a glass vase I came up with this weeks project. I love bees as they always make me smile so they were the perfect choice for me to use with this weeks winged theme.

Miria This week I made an unusual wedding card using this winged couple and papers from Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD .I added a stamped sentiment, buttons and some glossy accents on the coloured stampie: easy peasy!

Ruth: I've really gone for something that flutters! I've cut out and layered up four of the butterflies from Sundae of Season, glittered the edges of the wings, the tips of their tails and added antenna with wire and sead beads. They have tiny little magnets adding to their underneaths and currently are perched on my button tub! For a close up version have a look at my blog!

Colette This week I made quite a plain card and apart from a few flowers from stash and a Martha Stewart punch everything I used came from the All Around and Everywhere CD. I slightly curled the wings of the dragonfly, then using foam pads down the centre attached it to the card. When you open the card another dragonfly "pops out" to greet you, the inner dragonfly actually hovers about 7cms away from the card, unfortunately the pics don't show it off.  

Good luck - please remember our rules and the challenge closes at 12noon GMT on Sunday 26 June!
