Polkadoodles Challenge and News!

Well it's time for another PolkaDoodle challenge, and this week the theme is 'A wish for the New Year'. I used not so plain plains in Villa from the Not For Girls CD Rom and then randomly stamped over it with the dandelion stamp from the Garden Neighbours Stamp Set, brilliant stamps, and very hard to get hold of as they sell out everytime they are shown on Create and Craft, if you want them put your name down on the wait list at PolkaDoodles. I also stamped randomly on white card as a contrast, and glittered all the dandelions on the Villa card. I made up a little poem, (puts me in mind of that little ditty, I was a poet but I didn't know it,  but in my case it should read, I'm not a poet, and yes I know it, hehehe!), and sentiment especially for the card.
The card is a normal square card and opens in the usual way, but has the slider on the front. I also used silver card, ribbon and diamonte flower embellishment from stash, and a Martha Stewart punch.

Card Front

First part of poem is on the tag that you pull up, second part is under the sliding section.

Side view shows the slider pulled all the way back.

Poem reads - Today I blew a dandelion ,
                      and made a wish for you,
                      A wish for luck and happiness
                      in everything you do.
                      A wish that you'd have hope,
                      and strength if times are tough,
                      but the greatest thing I wished for you,
                      was lots and lots of love!

Hope you can join us for the challenge this week, it's lovely to visit all your blogs and see your creations.

What a brilliant idea and didn't realise I was working with a future Poet Laureate! Georgeous and moving poem.
