Polkadoodle Challenge -

This card was made especially for my Step-Granddaughter Mikayla for her 12th Birthday. I printed an image from the Dollie Daydream goes East CD rom. Available from
I then coloured her with my Graph'it markers and cut and matted the image.  I used the papers and alphabet from the CD rom and took them into my Craft Artist programme to make the background.
I then die cut some cherry blossom and branches and then printed a scroll sentiment.  I love how this card has turned out.

Creative Moments DT Challenge

Hi there, Oh don't you just love this little bee?  This digi image is available from

I printed and cut him out, coloured him in with my Promarkers, added a touch of glitter to his wings and clear accents to his glasses.  I used an embossing folder on kraft cardstock, tore it around the edges, distressed it with inks and went over it with metallic gold pan pastel. The other background paper was from my crafty stash that I inked the edges and matted it onto kraft cardstock. Printed out a sentiment saying "Bee my Honey" and cut that out using a hexagon punch. There it is! Love this!

Digi Choosday Challenge - Using Inserts and Envelopes

So its Digi Choosday again! Time flies!  Today we had to use inserts and envelopes for our challenge.  so I picked an envelope from the Dollie Daydream CD Rom available from or our Etsy store. I then chose a insert that matched the envelope. I printed the envelope first and put it together it fits a 4 x 6" card.  I then printed the insert out on the setting 4 x 6"  I cut the insert in half and matted it on white and turquoise cardstock.  I then cut a 4 x 6" piece of white and brown cardstock and made them into a tag.  I embossed the brown card with a dotty embossing folder. I then cut out the sentiment on the other half of the insert and made that into a little tag also matting it on brown.  I added a bow and printed out a page of flowers from the "Build a flower" section on the CD Rom.  There it is folks.

Digi Choosday - Shaping Up

Hello there! It's Digi Choosday once again!  This week's challenge is Shaping Up! So my take on this is a Shaped Card.  I used a digi image from the Dollie Daydream Goes East CD Rom available from and also on Etsy.  I coloured this lovely image using Graph'it markers and then chose a parasol from the CD, the colours matched perfectly. I printed it out on as an A4 size then die cut it using my Grand Stately Circles from Spellbinders, which gave a lovely lacey edge to the parasol.  I then cut out two Grand Scalloped Circles, folded one in half for the base and attached the parasol to the other as a topper.  I then printed out a sentiment scroll and added some butterflies to complete the card.  I love it! Hope you do too x

Polkadoodles Challenge - Anything but a card!

For Polkadoodles Challenge today I have made a little Chinese food carton box. I mean little it is only 2" high!  It is from the template section on the new Polkadoodle Dollie Daydream Goes East CD Rom.  I printed out the carton template on cardstock first, then printed over the top with a backing paper also from the CD rom then put the carton together.  With the remainder of the cardstock I cut out a couple of flowers and put them on top of the carton and finished it off with a little button. I then printed out one of the sentiments and attached it to the carton. Cute eh?
