Week 50 - Secret Santa (part 2)...Polkadoodles challenge

We've gone all "Secret Santa" here at Polka Doodles and this is week 2 of our challenge. 
We wanted to make our last challenges of 2014 a little bit different with the festive season looming.
You can find the Challenge Here

Each of the DT has made a card for someone else on the DT but nobody knows who is making for whom ... hee, hee, hee.

So the challenge this fortnight is ...

"Who would you make a Secret Santa card for and why?"
This special Secret Santa will last for 2 weeks so you have until 18th December to enter - if you're canny you could win 3 digis and we will also have 3 fabulous overall prize winners chosen at random, each of whom will receive a copy of one of our amazing Collections worth at least £10.99 each!

Link up to the challenge using Mr Linky below ...... now you don't necessarily have to make a card or project for this challenge but you could do a short post instead sharing your Secret Santa (crush/hero/heroine etc etc). Link up to your post as normal and use the photo of your secret crush Santa in Mr Linky. If you do make a project, link as per normal.

NOW as an added bit of fun, visit each DT blog and have a guess, using the clues, as to whom they may have made their project for .... leave a comment on their blog with your idea and you could be in with the chance of winning a prize of a wonderful Polka Doodles digi image. We will randomly chose 3 DT blogs (names in a hat thing) and then randomly chose a comment from each blog and the winning comment will each receive a Polka Doodles digi image.

The winners of our Nordic Challenge Weeks 48 are at the end of this post!

So let's see who has made what this week .....

Claire C  How exciting, we all love a surprise don't we?? For my Secret Santa card I've used Festive Hollybobs for my card starting with the gorgeous red polkadot backing paper and adding lots of precoloured images (liberally glittered for some Christmas sparkle lol) The main image is one of the digis from the collection, coloured with my Graph'It markers. Here's a peek at the main image, pop over to my blog to see the finished card and of course find some clues too :-)
My first clue is...... my Secret Santa Teamie enjoys cycling!!

Bev I've used the brilliant Poinsettia Stamp set, stamped it out a few times for the layers and coloured it with my Graph'it Markers then shaped the petals,  glued the layers together with silicone and added a bit of glitter glue to the centres. The backing paper is from Work & Play Festive Hollybobs. I added a scalloped, embossed, contrasting semi circle to the top of the card wrapped some festive bakers twine around it and stamped out my greeting onto a tag, inking the edges.
The first clue is...... This needs to be sent via air mail....
