Some very very very sad news :(

Hi everyone!  First, apologies for not visiting much this week.  I had an op yesterday and thought I'd be fine spending relaxing time seeing my blog mates during recovery, but actually I am just dog tired!!  I keep falling asleep and there's me thinking I was superwoman!  I will be around to see you all over the weekend for sure though - bare with me!  So onto the real reason why I am here...


This is sad news for ardent Pollycraft fans - the lovely and gorgeous Paula has decided to close down the shop for the foreseeable future.  :(  I think some of my best designs are inspired and use these digis so it's BAD news for me!  I hope the "foreseeable future" is foreseeable soon!  Paula is going out with a bang though with some parting gifts - new release, huge bargains and freebies - go check them out right now here
The shop will close on the 8th June


In the meantime, here is a card I made for one of her newbies Luna Bitterfrost - Steampunk Rocks...


Isn't she fab?  I used Glitz Design French Kiss papers and I recycled a Fat Face clothes tag and kept the tactile feel with the ribbons.  I rarely do steampunk, but I love how this turned out - don't think I'll be able to pull it off again though!

Better go before I start sobbing with the thought of missing my PC DT buddies, but I'll be back later with a post for All That Scraps (all scheduled of course so hopefully it will post on time!).




I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I've just found you, I'm a first time visitor to your blog, your cards are lovely, but I hadn't heard of Pollycraft either, the images are lovely so I've ordered the mega bundle before they close down. I'm now having difficulty downloading these though, I've used 3 of the 5 times you're allowed to download already but I can't find where they're downloading to. I contacted I hope Pollycraft can help.

Lorraine said...

Love this card, Mary J! Sorry, I'm still trying to catch up, lol. Love the image and your coloring of it...and the vintage look of your card! I love these Pollycraft images and am sad they are shutting down.
