Pollycraft Monday Challenge #108

Is it really Monday again already?! Well we have just had a lovely relaxing weekend off with a visit to the very pretty towns of Monemvasia and Nafplion.  This week hopefully some of the real estate agents we have contacted will get back to us and we will find our dream apartment somewhere in Voula or Glyfada (fingers crossed).  

Anyway, Monday means a new challenge at Pollycraft Monday... But before I tell you all about that, my husband has randomly selected a commenter from the blog hop comments to win Luna Bitterfrost -  Dare to be Different -  Science Rocks... and that lucky person is commenter number 24: Louise who said:

"what a fab image- I can think of someone who this image would be perfect for since they are doing a PhD in microbiology and spend all day in the lab. Love Luna's big glasses and the lab coat. Brill card and love the papers. Thanks for the blog hop x" 

Congratulations Louise! Send me an email ( and we will get your new digi sent to you!

This week's challenge theme was chosen by Jane and I think it's a fun one... it is to use felt on your creation!  Our sponsor this week is The Crimson Cloud and the prize is 3 packets of die cuts!

For my felt creation I decided to use one of the new Dexter images:

The blue penguin paper is a new delivery for me from Crafty Emma's Store and the Wish List stamp is from Whimsy Doodles (I think).  I purchased the felt from Blooming Felt and the twine from The Ribbon Girl.  The pearls were white, but I coloured them to match the sun with copics.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Card Mad Fairy's Challenge #15: Buttons
Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge #34: Christmas
Digis with Attitude Challlenge #32: Anything Goes
The Poodles Parlour: Anything Goes

Here are the copics I used for Dexter:

And here's a close-up of Dexter:

Happy Monday!

So cute! Love that you had a wonderful weekend to rest up. Now we just need a wave of a magick wand to bring in some special new home base for you two.

Spoke to the UK chickies early this morning, so lovely to see them growing up and talking the hind leg off of a donkey :)

Biggest hugs
