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

I printed my background papers onto some cardstock using my inkjet printer to make the base of my card. Then added the cute Candy Cane Elf image and all the fussy cut decorations..

ABC Challenges - R is for Red, Ribbon and Reindeer

Hi I'm back with a new ABC Challenge and this one is R is for Red, Ribbon and Reindeer. For this challenge, we need to use all three on our cards. This challenge is sponsored by Live & Love Crafts.

 Here is my DT make for your inspiration. I have been very busy with work and short of crafting time lately, so I decided on a quick CAS card using the a very cute reindeer pre coloured image that I cut our using a fancy die. I then layered it onto a pretty patterned paper and a red card base. I offset my die cut so that there was room for a big red ribbon bow in the top corner. 

Until next time, happy crafting...

Supplies used:

Winnie Winterland - North Pole digital craft stamp download, Red card, Christmas paper, Ribbon/Gift frames cutting die, Red ribbon, dimensionals, double sided tape

Polkadoodles Winnie Winterland

Hi again,  I'm back to share my third make - this time featuring the delightful Winnie from the latest Polkadoodles releases.

This time I have shaped and sparkled some flowers from the collection and used them to decorate my card.

Here it is closed, ready for posting:

But when you open the card, surprise:

Well that's my two makes for today, I'll be back tomorrow with another make using these fabulous new collections.

Polkadoodles Baked with Love release

So I hope you are enjoying all the fabulous DT makes for the latest Polkadoodles releases.

This morning I'm back to share my second make - this time featuring the gorgeous Gingerbread characters from the Baked with Love collection.

I made a Z fold pop up card so I could include more of the gingers, as they are all so cute. And have you seen the really special offer Nikky Hall has on at the moment - if you buy the Winnie Winterland collection, you can buy the Baked with Love collection for half price if you buy it at the same time. How awesome is that?

Anyway here is my card:

Happy stamping, and see you a bit later with another card featuring Winnie. Here is some more information on the collections:

Polkadoodles Autumn Colours

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 autumn colours.

For my make this week I have used the beautiful new Festive Christmas download collection and made a quick and easy Christmas card.

I used a background paper and added the robin, clock and wreath image from the Soup to it. I also added a tag  with Joy sentiment from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection.   I then printed the image, cut it out and layered it onto my backing card. I then printed out the red bow embellishment and added it to the top corner.

Here is my card:

Happy stamping until next time...
