Digi Choosday Challenge Week 51 – Anything Goes!

Good morning everybody!  So this is my last post of 2016!!! (Hey…who’s cheering??!) 😉

Oh my, where has the year gone?! I hope that it has been a good one for you and you can look back and smile rather than grimace! J I’m certainly looking forward to 2017! Should be quite exciting methinks!! ;)

Anyway onto the job in hand and as it is Choosday it means it’s time for our last  challenge of the year over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme is Anything Goes and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s a limited offer so hurry!!

So for the last challenge of the year the team were let loose with an Anything Goes theme and I took full advantage of that with my rather odd card this time!!
 Now my step-niece loves skulls **shrugs**, and has them strategically placed all over her home. So I made her a Christmas card incorporating her obsession and also her fave colour, purple. Embrace the odd; that’s what I say!

Printing Card: ULTIMATE SMOOTH

Polkadoodles Funny Old Bags – Where’s My Teeth?!!!

Good morning everybody!  Howya doin’?


I’m here to show another of the cards I made to introduce Nikky Hall’s fab new range of glamorous ladies called FUNNY OLD BAGS.  These came about to help celebrate the 50th birthday of the awesome Rhea from PASSIONATE PAPER CREATIONS and if you follow them and the POLKADOODLES GROUP on Facebook, or the DIGI CHOOSDAY CHALLENGE BLOG, you may have spotted these already.

I used WHERE’S MY TEETH? for this design and digitally manipulated her to sit inside a mirror digi.  To accompany this ‘glamour puss’ I gave her a cocktail of lotions and potions (and a corset) which come from various POLKADOODLES collections. Looks a bit like my bathroom to be honest (minus the corset)!!!

When I see this image I can’t help reciting that Pam Ayres poem; ‘Oh, I wish I’d Looked After Me Teeth!’ LOL


Ingredients:
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Colouring Medium: Faber Castell Polychromos
SENTIMENT: Free when you buy the bundle HERE
Dies/Punches: POLKADOODLES ‘RIBBON GIFT FRAME &CORNERS - Tonic ‘Nesting Ovals’
Others: Pearls – Kraft card embossed with a woodgrain folder

Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to leave such kind comments!  Enjoy your day!

See ya!

Polkadoodles Funny Old Bags – Scratch It!!!

Good morning everybody!  How are things!

I’m just popping in to show you one of the cards I made to introduce some new ‘ladies’ to the land of digi drawn by our uber talented Nikky Hall.  These came about to help celebrate the 50th birthday of the wonderful Rhea from PASSIONATE PAPER CREATIONS and if you follow them, the POLKADOODLES GROUP on Facebook or our DIGI CHOOSDAY CHALLENGE BLOG you would not have failed to notice these ‘beauties’ as you browsed!  If they have tickled your fancy you can get them all HERE; there are sentiments too!
So my card is a homage to all of us who want to buy those sexy, unrealistic knickers from posh boutiques but plump for a pack of 5 ‘comfies’ from Asda instead. 😁
I thought there was ‘room’ for a tattoo so I added one. Bit rude not to methinks! 😜

Ingredients:
Images: SCRATCH IT!
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Colouring Medium: Faber Castell Polychromos
SENTIMENT: Free when you buy the bundle HERE
Dies/Punches: POLKADOODLES ‘CHERRY BLOSSOM’ and SUPER SPRIGS - Tattered Lace ‘Stitched Pockets – Memory Box ‘Puffy Clouds’ – Die’sire ‘Icicles’ - X-cut Mini Flower Punch

The Pencil Case – Wk 34: Anything Goes with Polkadoodles!

Hello! Happy Saturday everyone! Hope everyone is keeping warm! It’s blinkin’ freezing here in the UK! Brrrrrr!

Anyway we have a new challenge starting today on THE PENCIL CASE blog where the DT showcase the incredible LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS and our theme is always Anything Goes.  Now that should warm you up!

This time we are sponsored by the amazing…
………who are very kindly offering a fab prize so check out THE BLOG for details.

Now the image I chose to use this week may be familiar to those of you who follow Kit and Clowder as this is one of Nikky’s fab images included in their new monthly colouring class! He is called NOEL CHRISTMAS MOUSE and isn’t he the cutest!!!!
I (in my infinite yet now rapidly depleting wisdom) decided to go for a bit of spotlight colouring this time.  Not entirely successful I think you’ll agree as the design is all over the place but you’ve gotta love me for trying!! lol

Ingredients:
Colouring Paper: Neenah Desert Storm Kraft 
Colouring: LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS (Colours used listed on THE PENCIL CASE BLOG)
Sentiment:  WINNIE WINTERLAND
Dies: Spellbinders ‘Heirloom Ornaments 2011’ and ‘Poinsettia’ – Tattered Lace ‘Large Decorative Rectangles’
Others: Glitter Gems - Twine - Kraft and coloured card from stash

So don’t hang about and swing over to THE BLOG where you can join in with our fab challenge, and as it is Anything Goes you have no excuse!!! And if you adore your pencil colouring why not share your makes with us in our FACEBOOK GROUP! We would love to see you!

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a wonderful weekend!

See ya!
