Pollycraft Monday Challenge 6 - Doodling



This week's challenge over at Pollycraft Monday Challenge has been set by the very talented Emma and you have to do some doodling on a card so whether doodling is just your thing or takes you out of your comfort zone why not join in with the challenge! There is a fantastic prise for the winner of 'From The Heart Flourishes' Corner and Heart stamps, just remember to use a Pollycraft element on your card. My design team card features a Woodland Elf stamp called 'Adoration' available from Pollycraft Designs. I am still managing to keep up with decorating my envelopes at the moment and I have used another stamp 'Toodstools' from Pollycraft.

Well today was a big day for me and my little girl Grace, after 10 months on maternity leave I went back to work today and Grace had her first day at nursery. It was hard leaving her this morning but we both got on ok! I'm only working part-time so I am sure we will both get used to it soon.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment if you have time.

Hugs Lynsey :)

Materials:
Elf Stamp 'Adoration' from Pollycraft

Good luck with going back to work. I know how hard it must be but I think it's brilliant that mothers have the opportunity to work and it's great that you can be part time.
