Just a quick one to show you what I've been up to recently. You'd be forgiven for thinking this might be a little odd - Autumn may well have been and gone this year, but things aren't always so straightforward in the craft magazine world. Take it from someone who was making Christmas cards in July! When I got this commission for a new bookazine called The Cardmaker's Collection from the lovely editor Amy, I was pretty pleased to put Christmas aside for a little while! The bookazine includes a selection of papers and elements for every season, and I was asked to create some Autumnal cards using these gorgeous geometric and floral designs. The cards were a pleasure to make, and I have a total of 8 designs featured in the bookazine - so if you would like to see more make sure you get your hands on a copy! Now, back to Christmas - I'm off for some mulled wine and to finally write out my cards ;)

Wow - it's time for another Polka Doodles challenge, and this will be the last one before Christmas! Where has the time gone?! This fortnight, the Polka Doodles Design Team each received a secret message from Santa which required us to make a special card for another member of the team. Guess who Santa wanted me to make a project for? Here are some clues;
1 They were a Digi Queen2 They like all thing pretty and purple
3 They are on Team A
Please make your guesses of who you think my Secret Santa card is for in the comments section at the bottom of my post. One lucky winner will receive a digi image over and above the normal challenge prize. A random DT blog will be chosen and a commentator from that blog will then be picked as the winner of a fab Polka Doodles digi image. So don't forget to visit all the DT and see if you can guess which Secret Santa cards were made for which DT member to be in with a chance to win! All the details you need are on the main Polka Doodles challenge blog. You have up until Thursday 18th December (Midnight GMT) to enter and the winners will be announced on Friday 19th December (GMT).
Festive Hollybobs, and I've gone a bit dotty for beautiful big satin bows since using this gorgeous ribbon on a gift bag for a recent commission. I love the sumptuous effect it gives for this time of year! And of course you can't go wrong with a lovely stick pin and some sparkly silver skeleton leaves. Have a great weekend :)
