Polkadoodles Challenge - Something New

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are featuring a something new in our creations.


I have used a really cute image from the Winston Bear collection - Winston Bear Celebrate and made a Happy New Year card - I think this image is just perfect for celebrating the New Year with friends. 

Here it is:


I printed the image using my Canon inkjet printer and then coloured it in with my copics. The colours I used are: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, E47, E35, E33, E31, E30, E0000, BG0000, W00, Y26, Y23, Y21, Y00, YG67, YG63, YG61, G20, R21colourless blender ink.
I then used an oval die cut to cut out the image and layered it onto a lace heart doily and some olive card. I cut out the card to match the shape of the doily. I tied a double bow and tucked it under a couple of wild rose flowers and attached it to the top corner.

Happy New Year !!!

Polkadoodles Blue Christmas

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are featuring Christmas makes in shades of blue.


For my DT inspiration, I decided to make CAS card using the Winnie Winterland collection. I chose one of the blue papers for my background layer and created a snowflake patterned paper by scattering some of the snowflake embellies across my page and printing them on white cardboard. lastly I printed a Christmas blessing on white paper and cut it and a backing layer in the blue paper. Then I printed a bow and button from the Ephemera in the Rose Budd collection to finish  off my card.



Don't forget to check out the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog for some more fabulous  DT inspiration. We would love you to join us for our Anything Goes challenge, you might like to follow the optional "blue" theme. If you need some more inspiration you might like to browse our Facebook page.

Polkadoodles Christmas but not a card

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are featuring Christmas makes that are not a card.


For my DT inspiration, I decided to make an advent calendar, just in time for December next week. My daughter and I have been trying to focus on eating healthily so the normal chocolate advent calendars are out this year. I think she will like this one though, I have filled it with all sorts of fun little gifts.


Each little box is big enough to fit some lovely gifts, and I did include a couple of chocolates:



I decorated each box with papers and cut outs from one of the design sheets from the Winnie Winterland collection.

Don't forget to check out the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog for some more fabulous  DT inspiration. We would love you to join us for our Anything Goes challenge, you might like to follow the optional "not a card" theme. If you need some more inspiration you might like to browse our Facebook page.

ABC Challenge - T is for Three

Hi I'm back with a new ABC Challenge and this one is T is for Three - we want you top use three of something on your cards. This challenge is sponsored by Marianne Design and today I've used three flowers, three pearls, three layers of background paper and a triple bow.

I made this as a birthday card for my daughter who is mad keen on snakes and has just got her very first baby Albino Darwin Carpet python. I never though I would say it, but he is very cute. I tried to colour the snake on the card the same way, because he is a pretty mix of lemon, salmon pink and white.

 Here is my card:
