ICSketches Spring Bloghop!

>> Wednesday, April 20, 2011

If you just happened to find this post, please start at the beginning : ICSketches.

Welcome to the fourth stop in the Spring into ICSketches Blog Hop! The design team has provided some awesome inspiration as I'm sure you'll discover as you hop through the blogs. Remember to leave a comment on every blog, and then finish up at the ICSketches blog for a chance to win some amazing prizes.

There are prizes to be won at every stop along the way too and the Polkadot Door is no exception! I'll be giving away this little package to one lucky person who leaves a comment and becomes a follower (if you aren't one already). Its that simple.

and that's only my giveaway! We have so many fun sponsors lined up for this blog hop. Visit the ICsketches blog for a full list of the prizes. I'll be posting the winner of my blog candy on Friday the 22nd, so be sure to check back!

I had so much fun creating my card for this blog hop. We used Dawn's sketch #111 as our starting platform. I picked up this little donkey stamp last year already from Mejiens Designs. It was offered as a limited edition freebie, but its so cute I would gladly have paid for it. Free stuff is wonderful, but free stuff I love is even better. I've been trying to get into the habit of writing more thank-you notes lately. Its a good habit to get into and the more I look around, the more things to be thankful for I see.

The pictures are a little dark, I apologize. I was in such a hurry to take the pictures and put this post up that I decided not to wait for the batteries for my external flash unit to charge. I do things like that, because I'm sort of an inpatient person. :-)

The card came together really easily. Its simple, yet I love it. I raided my stash of vintage buttons and ribbon to come up with the different embellishments and coloured the donkey with my crayola pencil crayons. One of these days I've promised myself to either invest in better crayons, or maybe even copics. But for now that keeps getting put off because I seem to always find other uses for my money.

Before I go, I have to share this picture with you. I had some crafting company last night and while they might not be on a design team or have a blog of their own, their cards certainly deserve a little recognition.

Have fun blog hopping!

Fabulous card and that little donkey image is just tooo cuuuute! Great coloring and I love the buttons. However, I think the kids may have outdone you this time. Love the pinwheels on their cards! They did really fantastic work on their projects!
