Cupcake ATC And Some Blog Candy Alerts

How has your weekend been? What crafty stuff have you all been up to? I’ve made a couple of things but I’ve also been a bit distracted with Lego Star Wars on the Playstation – Oops! Hence the late post 🙂 I could have just pretended that I was really busy with a project…!

We have some news at Kaboodle Doodles – we have a fab new guest designer Chris from Mudmaven Designs. She has some blog candy up on her blog as well so go take a look. All very exciting 🙂

As I am on the subject of blog candy, Wendy has some at her blog Paper Therapy (great name for a blog!) she is giving away a Scor-Pal!

And one for the embroiderers: Mary has a lovely group of threads to give away on her blog Needle’n Thread.


Enjoy the rest of your day.

Doodles Galore

Everyone loves a good doodle 🙂 Here is some doodling for the A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge. I admit that I didn’t do the doodling myself but it was already on the paper, and then there is the Rhonda Farrer flower doodle stamp I’ve used as the background for the image.

The doodle flowers are stamped using Marvy Le Plume watercolour pens and I’ve used some sparkle for the colouring of the Sugar Nellie image, with some pearlescent paints.

Have a fab Saturday.

Papermania This Time

Details: The image is coloured with distress inks and Derwent Inktense pencils and I’m loving the paper circle flowers at the moment, I’ve distressed the edges with my seam ripper. Borders were added with a fine marker.
