Let's see your fave things over at Pollycrafts Monday!

Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT post!


A new challenge has opened over at Pollycraft Mondays and this week the lovely Lou wants to see us use your favourite things!  Well, there was no hesitation on this one for me - Chester is my all time favourite Pollycraft character!



So, my all time fave Chester is Call Me Chester as I love to make "hello, hope you haven't forgotten me" cards!  Some of my other favourite things are to use kraft cardstock and to use my Sakura white gel pen to doodle with.  Now I don't do a lot of doodling because I'm not any good at it, but I like to try!!  And as you can see from the photo, I'm even worse at drawing straight lines! 

Okay, so another of my faves is buttons - my all time fave embellishment so had to pop a few on.  Orange is my all time favourite so elements of those had to be added too.  And lastly, I also love to use a mix of patterned papers and then do something a little quirky - hence the paperclip!

I have a lot more fave things to do with a card, but I think I did pretty well sticking all that on to one!  You can see more lovely DT creations over at the challenge blog here!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Great card Mary, love the bright orange with the brown, seems to take me back to the seventies (Ok, I can't actually remember anything about the seventies as I was too young, but we use to have curtains like that well into the eighties! LOL)
