Scatty Jan.....How cute is little Ralph, I could not wait to get him coloured. He sits perfectly on my little Nesting/bird box. The Papers and Tag are from the download pack Christmas Joy and the Flowers and Holly Leaves from the download pack Back to Nature.
Anjie- Isn't the digi image just adorable! It is called Teddy hug and can be found here. I have coloured him with my Graph' It markers and then sprayed him with Graph'It Mix It Fluid which gives some texture. The papers and embellishments are from the Home for Christmas CD Collection. I have embossed a piece of white card and then used gold, copper and green Pan Pastels. I'm in love with the metallic pans, they give such a great effect!

Zoe - I decided to make a gift card to allow me to send a book voucher/card as a present, and as soon as I saw Emma Canning's Bookworm I knew I had to use it. I also chose elements from the Love Will Flourish digi collection even though this says it's for wedding stationery.  The papers and embellishments are so suitable for many an idea so it's always worth looking beyond the collection title. I took all of the images into Serif Craft Artist to create the main topper & bookmark. I matted & layered both onto coordinating card  before creating a simple pocket for the gift card/voucher to slot into along with a matching bookmark.
Debbi - You can't help but love Ralph, who is all ready for winter in his furry hat. I loved making this shape card, which can be used for winter birthdays as well as Christmas. The great thing about digi stamps  and downloads is the variety of things you can make. I made this card by importing the digi into the Silhouette Cameo software, which I separated  into sections and coloured each one. And the little secret of the furry hat...is a makeup cotton pad split in half :)
Sarah - Am very excited to be doing my first Digi Chooseday post and looking forward to using all the fabulous digi stash! For my very first project with the team I used an Emma Canning image - To Die For which I coloured with my ProMarkers and matched her with papers and embellishments from Sugar Boys download and Tail Feather download.  I then added a die-cut, a sentiment from Marriage Download bundle and some lace to finish off.  I thought maybe the card could be sent to a crafty friend who just purchased their first die-cutting machine, or even just someone who really loves their die-cuts (oh that would be me!!).

I'm so pleased to have been picked for this brand new design Team, I love working with Digital downloads, they are just so flexible to work with.  For my first card I used this super cute image called Christmas Cuddle by Emma Canning and coloured her up with my fabulous Graph'it Markers.
 I used the Christmas Joy download bundle for all of my papers and embellishments.

I am very excited to be on this brand new design team, I enjoy working with Digital images and Polkadoodle download bundles, I have used this gorgeous image from Emma Canning called The Happy Couple which is coloured with Graph'it Markers. and the beautiful Boundless Love Digital download bundle.
Jo....
Hi everyone... I'm soooooo pleased to be able to do a little playing designing with the fabulous products from Polkadoodles. For my first project, I totally fell in love with this Emma Canning Sew and Sew digi image which was printed onto some fantastic white card, and then coloured with alcohol markers. After she was mounted with some die cuts, I trimmed up some of this paper and layered it onto brown cardstock. The card was finished with a die cut bunting and a border punch.
Joanne
Hello everyone, I am sooo excited about being a part of Digi Choosday! For my first project I couldn't resist colouring the gorgeous Emma Canning digi, Skate Away With Me. I added a sentiment, available here, and a glittered, kraft card snowflake embellishment for a bit of added sparkle. The background paper is from Christmas Joy, available here.
Susan - I was so exited when I got picked for the brand new Digi Choosday DT . I have used the Digi collection Girls Hoot ,and an image from the very talented Emma Canning Prom Day coloured with Graph'it markers . All are available at Polkadoodles.

I decided to give a Christmas feel with this Emma Canning Angel digi but it can be used all year round - very clever design! 

Sally - Hi there, so excited to be on the new Design Team!  I have used one of my favourite digis from Emma Canning called "All lit up" which I coloured with my Graph'it markers. I then used the a backing paper, embellishments and sentiment from the digi bundle Christmas Joy to complete my card. I matted it on brown cardstock and die cut a holly tag for my sentiment.

So there is all the fab inspiration from the team - I'm sure you'll agree that they're all superb makes!
