New Poinsettia stamp

This weeks challenge for Polkadoodles is Christmas in July, and this gives the design team a chance to show everyone the new Paper Boutique 2 - Creative Christmas CD-Rom.
Polkadoodles are doing a new range of stamps, this Poinsettia is among them, and are from the NEW Stamp Doodles range. I stamped it three times and cut it out and layered it up after glittering around the edges. The backing paper is from the NEW Paper Boutique 2 - Creative Christmas, the sentiment and holly is from Christmas Doodles stamp set.

Now for some Fab news from Nikky to pass on about a fab competition which has started today.The great news is that Polka Doodles has teamed up with Letraset of Promarkers fame to host a competition with the MOST FABULOUS PRIZES imaginable. If you pop over to the Challenge Blog, Nikky will tell you more about it

A quick update on my Sister, She is still in a lot of pain, so yesterday I took her to the doctors and they gave her some stronger painkillers, so hopefully this will see a bit more of an improvement. My hubby is driving her and the twins to Blackpool on Saturday to join my mam and dad on their holiday, and then going back to bring them back a week later. So i'll be able to have a rest providing my own kids behave. Looking forward to some easy time with my kids as they start their summer holidays tomorrow.

Hoping you all have a lovely weekend and thank you for popping by my way.
Happy crafting

Hi Tracy

Wow so much has been happening on your blog whilst I have been away.

I bet you don't know if you are on your head or your heels.

You have made some gorgeous creations and all this amongst your babysitting duties and whilst trying to sort things for your sister.

I am pleased she is out of hospital but sorry that she is still struggling. I hope things improve soon.

Take care Tracy .. I hope you catch your breath soon.

Love Jules xx
