Right, let's get on with it!

Asha - Fairy time! What a wonderful excuse to play with Christmas fairies. This week I bring not one but two fairies with this swing card made entirely from images, papers and greetings from the delightful Angelberry Christmas collection. I added very few extras in this production - just some Liquid Pearls and Stickles. If you like fairies and Christmas, this CD will keep you busy with fabulous festive makes.

Sally - "Fairy Time"  For this challenge I have looked through my Polkadoodle stamp sets that I have and decided to use Fairy Flutterby - Maggie.  I coloured her with Graph'it markers, stamped the butterfly on card and vellum and coloured them identically. I cut out Maggie and the butterflies and adhered them together using Pinflair Glue.  I found some butterfly background paper in my crafty stash which is off of one of my Polkadoodle CD Roms and mounted that on some turquoise cardstock then onto a Kraft card.  I then went into my Bonbon Belle CD Rom to find a flower to match my fairy. Printed it 4x6 size and then cut it out. Adhered my fairy Maggie onto the centre, added a sentiment and toadstools from the stamp set. I also added a touch of glitter to her wings x

Zoe - For this, my first time DT project for Polkadoodles, I chose to use the very gorgeous collection that is The Bonbon Belles CD.  I chose two different fairies - one I hand coloured with a mix of markers and the other a pre-coloured image from the CD. Together with papers and embellishments from the collection I created pages in my craft journal. It's something I love to do and find it's something to look at for inspiration. The sentiments are from Picknix collection (Studio 12) which I wanted to finish the pages.

Bev - This week I opted to use the gorgeous Sugarplum Daisy CD Rom. I printed off a few digis to make up my picture and coloured them in with my Graph it markers. The backing paper and cute tickets also come from the same CD. I inked up a doily to add a lacy edge, a leafy die cut & a flower from my crafty stash completes this bold design.

Karon - This week we were asked to try and put two different fairies on the same project.  Did you know that owl fairies actually give the fairies their wings?  Well, that is what I am going with :-)  My little owl is from the Bonbon Belles Double CD and the second fairy is from the CD collection All Around and Everywhere.  I made an accordion card, or triple fold card, and layered it with papers from Cherryblossom Lane CD (Butterfly paper) and the Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD (Daisy paper). The main sentiment was also from the Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD.  The little ticket "Just a note" was from the Cherryblossom Lane CD.

Alethea - Well I went all out this week and became a little creative!! I created a door or wall hanger for one of Logan's friends' from school who is having a party this weekend! I went through all my Polka Doodles cd's looking for fairies and accessories to go with them and decided to use the new Bonbon Belles Cd disc 1 and 2. I was initially going to make a card then got a great idea to create a scene on acetate! The only thing not from the Bonbon Belle's cd is the mushrooms  (from Sundae of Seasons cd)  that I have incorporated into the garden! Parts of the garden are raised so there is some dimension, I added kindyglitz for some sparkle, rhinestones for bling, replaced the flower stems with twine as well as the banner string, then added the painted chipboard letters.

Claire C  - I'm in the festive spirit this week and getting ready for Christmas, talk about organised lol. I've made a double sided door hanger using images and papers from Angelberry Christmas Cd. The images were coloured with Graph'It markers and I've added some die cuts and a sparkly moon made with Maimeri Glassy Gel. I've added some text to the sky, on on side it says 'Santa Please Stop Here' and on the other its says 'I've been good', I've popped the sparkly moon over the text so you can only see it at certain angles. I've done a tutorial on how to make the moon so scroll down if you fancy having a go.

Anjie - I know it's not my week but I loved the theme so thought I would gate-crash with a card.
The papers and images are from the Sugarplum Daisy CD-Rom. I have coloured the image with Graph It markers which you can buy from here.

I've added some faux stitching to the papers and some glitter to the wings. I've made the roses from the same paper then added some lace, a feather and a die cut doily for some added interest. I'm really pleased with how this card has turned out, I think it's because it's in my fave colours!

Hi there, It's Rebekah here with my first DT project for polkadoodles and the Fairy time challenge!
I have created a bookmark pocket card for my daughter.
I have used the chocolate lime papers from the Bonbon Belles double CD. Both my fairy digis are from the same CD and I have coloured them both with pencils. The great thing about digis is being able to resize them so I could make a tiny one for the bookmark, of course you might want to use a pre coloured image if you don't like colouring in tiny details!
I have also used the Bonbon Belles CD for many of my extra elements like my layered butterfly and ladybird and some of my flowers, all from the coordinating collection. My stamp on the bookmark is Polkadoodles sensational sentiments Stamp doodles.

Miria For my card I used two fairies from Bonbon Belles CD , as you can see, they're different sizes, the one in the tag is a mini fairy :) it's so easy to fit them as you like! They are both coloured with pencils. I die cut some scraps of patterned papers from Sugarplum Daisy CD to use as a background and added some sentiment tickets.

Fliss For my creation with 2 fairies, I've made a double sided mobile designed to be hung up so that it will twist in any breeze so that you can see the different fairy on each side. I've used my 2 favourite fairies from the Bonbon Belles CD and have used 2 of the absolutely gorgeous floral wreaths to sit them in. I used precoloured images as I'm short on time at the moment but with Nikky's wonderful colouring you'd never know! I added a scattering of gems and pearls and some pretty roses to finish off.

Nikky...I made this Angel (well they're the same as Fairies really right? from the Angelberry stamp using my Graph'It markers. I wanted to add a warm glow so it looked like the 'Peace' was lit up from underneath...
Lidia... And for this challenge I made a triptych with tags, this in turn also serves as Mini Album, fairies are Maggie, Babsie and Meeshelle; Papers from Master Final  Cd, flowers are from  Studio 12 Stamps.
