Crimbo Crackers Challenge 143 - Create A Scene

Time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is

Create A Scene

I've made a shaker card and this was a special request card too for a Chelsea Football fan who loves cars!  I've used a Memory Box die for the scene and added some fake snow and seed beads for the shaker bits - both from my stash.


The car charm, ribbon and bakers twine are also from my stash and I've used an X Cut star die plus a swirly little X Cut die too.  I printed the Chelsea emblem a few times and then cut then out.

Good luck with the challenge!

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Halloween

Welcome to a new Polkadoodle challenge!  The theme for the fortnight is:

Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to create something spooky and I've used the new Halloween Trick or Treat collection.  I've made a simple pillow box from one of the papers and a sentiment, scoring the different folds and also the top and bottom - I use a scrap piece of card as a template for the shaped parts otherwise I could end up with anything!  I layered the sentiment onto a circle die cut and added a plain black card band so that it can slide off.


The sentiment are letter die cuts I found in my stash - I cut up a letter g to make the two o's and then coloured them with Promarkers.  The little bats are table confetti.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge Week 40 - Di's Digi's and Scrap N Dipity

Welcome to a new Colour Crazy Challenge!  The theme for the fortnight is as always:

Anything Goes

We are sponsored by Di's Digi's and Scrap N Dipity who generously provided the DT with images to play with.  The first one is from Di's Digi's - Football Bench and I've coloured with Promarkers plus watercolour pencils for the background.  I've handwritten the sentiment and added X Cut stars from papers I found in my stash.


And I also got to use an image from Scrap N Dipity - Little Super Hero Boy which I've also coloured with Promarkers and then added to the background (actually wallpaper) and I made the Clearly Besotted die cut sentiments by cutting up various words and piecing them together, except the birthday one which is an actual full die cut!

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Christmas

The current Polkadoodle challenge is, as always:

Anything Goes

The Design Team were challenged to create something Christmas.  I've used one of the pre-coloured images from the Winnie White Christmas collection and printed it directly onto white linen effect cardstock.  I've glittered the wings and hat with stickles plus used watercolour pencils for the background which shows off the grain on the card.


I've cut the image using the Bubbleicious Frame, added it with foam pads to an offcut of card - left over from making a square card from a sheet of A4.  Ribbon and buttons from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge Week 39 - Bugaboo

Welcome to a new Colour Crazy challenge!  The theme as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Bugaboo and Jodie generously provided us with images and I used Gus Wife's Birthday.  Coloured with Promarkers plus watercolour pencils for the background I then layered it onto some scrap card from my stash and added  some half pearls from my stash along with Cadbury purple ribbon.


A great image for a quick card!  I've added glossy accents to Gus' glasses and the balloons but its not shown up too well.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Happy Beer Day!

When is a sentiment not a sentiment? When it's actually a card!  Made using one of the sentiments from Dr Digi - Beer Sentiments Sheet.  I printed it directly onto the card stock after enlarging it without any loss of quality.  Coloured with Promarkers and I've added Pint Glass and coloured it with Promarkers as well, it's attached with a strip of acetate.
