Now, for the inspiration from the Polkadoodles team this week....

Sandie - Oh I love this theme, Christmas Fun :D  Gave me a chance to revisit the fabulous Festive Hollybobs CD and what's even better is that the image I have used is also available for digi download!  Her name is Hollybobs Cards and I realise that this is a shock, but I have not used my alcohol markers!!! I know, shocker!  Instead I used a black micron pen to add shading to the already fabulous artwork by our very own Nikky :D  I hope you like my monochrome Christmas Fun and I look forward to seeing all your entries.  More details of mine on my blog and if you follow me you will never miss a DT inspiration!  Happy Crafting, Sandie xx


Jenny - I've used the Festive Hollybobs for this little cracker style box, I am going to make some pinwheels to stand inside them and use them as place settings for Christmas.


Katie - Not long now till the big day so I thought I would make a "Count Down Too" wall hanging. I used old drinks coasters and Pretty Tuff CD ROM. I cannot wait to see what you all come up with have fun and Keeeeeeeeeep Crafting Katie DT xx



sue                 Challenge this week is christmas fun I have made a christmas card
                                                             using   pretty tuff
                        I used the front door stamp and coloured it in christmas colours
                                  downloaded the lamp post and snowman from the
                                                 and added some snow and glitter

Bev here with my Christmas fun card, I decided to challenge myself by using an everyday image 'Amelia with basket'  and see if I could turn her into something festive. I coloured her with my Graph'its all colours used are on my blog. The paper, bow and heart are all from the fabulous resourceful Work & Play Festive Hollybobs all I've added from my own crafty stash is a gemstone in the middle of the bow, some glitter glue on the holly berries and some irridescent embossing powder on the heart.


Yvonne - Hi there!! Well I decided to make a fun little Christmas card using papers and embellishments from Work & Play Festive Hollibobs, which you can get as a CDRom or as a digi download bundle. However, I love the new Winston Bear Collection and wanted to use 'Etty's New Dress' as it demonstrates how versatile the collection is.Winston is available as a CDRom, a digi download collection or as an individual digi stamp.  I enlarged the snowflake embellishment on my Silhouette and then cut it out twice to make a card.  Added the embellishments and coloured in Etty with my Graph'It Markers.


Susan - Well here I am again with Etty from the Winston CD and also available as full download  Here.These digis are just adorable .I coloured the image with my Graph'it Markers and Prisma Pencils
I have also used Papers and embellishments from the Festive Hollybobs CD or Download Here and.Hope this gives you a little inspiration .

Anjie - I was challenged to make a Christmas card without using anything from any of the Christmas collections. At first I thought how the heck am I going to do that? Then I thought of this paper from the Pretty Sweet Collection, and thought if I glittered it it would look Christmasy and I think it does. (You can't really tell on the photo). The image is also from the Pretty Sweet Collection or is availalbe as an instant download here and is coloured with my Graph'It Markers. More info on the things I have used is on my blog.

Frezja - hi all :) Today I decided to make a funny card with WINSTON CD :)
Sweet bears are suitable for every occasion even on Christmas and winter....
