I Do Doodle Sometimes

My older daughter, Jenni, moved home on Monday. She now lives further away from us, in a bedsit in Worthing with her boyfriend. I have yet to see their new place but look forward to going there soon.
I was at work and couldn't help her move so I sent her this New Home card to make her smile.
A bedsit is hardly a palace! But the card is a bit of fun.
The background had to be purple as that's Jenni's favourite colour. I stamped the Hero Arts palace stamp and enlarged it on the computer as I wanted an A5 size card, and traced over the outline with a Sakura glitter pen to make it sparkle. I doodled the cloud (see, I do doodle sometimes!) and placed it behind the palace. Then I added the border and flowers. The New Home message was done on the computer using Word Art in Windows Office (I can't get my head around Paint Shop Pro) then cut out with a circle punch. There are a couple of scalloped circles beneath it to make the message 3D.
As I was now getting into this doodling lark, I decided to decorate the inside the same way!

So now I've doodled on a scrapbook page and doodled on a handmade card.
Lookout! It could be catching!


  1. It's fabulous! I bet she absolutely loved it! :D

  2. This is a brilliant card .... love the doodling

  3. Perfect doodling to match the image...I know how you do that, but really, how do you do that?
