Digi Choosday Challenge Week 38: Anything Goes!

Good morning everybody!  Hope all is well with you and yours?

It is Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme is Anything Goes and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   If you use a Polkadoodles image you could also win a Feather in Your Cap and you can find all the info HERE.

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s a limited offer so hurry!!

The DT’s challenge this week was ‘Christmas Gift Wrapped’ and we had to stick to the traditional reds and greens.

So did you catch Nikky on Create and Craft on Friday (if you missed the shows you can view them HERE)? She launched her awesome new collection FESTIVE CHRISTMAS and this is one of the samples I made. 

I have not made an exploding box in an age (they are simplicity itself and I do like simple) and this one has a small….ok tiny compartment in the middle to hold some sweets.  In fact I fitted 6…yes 6 whole Jelly Babies in there (had to scoff the rest of the bag….couldn’t let them go off)!  I have a sneaking suspicion that the ‘Exploding Box 6’ are not there anymore either.

Ingredients:
All pre-coloured elements: FESTIVE CHRISTMAS
Printing Card: ULTIMATE SMOOTH
Dies: Tonic ‘Nesting Squares’ and ‘Nesting Stars’ – Couture ‘Artistry Gift Bow’
Punches: Tonic ‘Celtic Border’
Others: Clear Dewdrops

So box clever and visit THE BLOG where you can join in with our challenge.  The Anything Goes theme means there’s no reason not to! And don’t forget to visit the STORE  and as it’s….                   
….. but be quick to grab that DISCOUNT CODE from THE BLOG as it’s for a limited period only!

Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to leave such kind comments!  Have a lovely day!

So the DT’s challenge was to use ribbon and/or lace and I have to confess that I was caught on the hop with this one so made my tag in double quick time.  In fact I think the completed design took just under 30 minutes which for me is a personal best.  It usually takes me an entire day to decide what I’m going to make and then another day to actually make it!!

Thankfully I already had the image coloured and all the other elements were leftovers from previous projects! Love that!


Ingredients:
Backing paper, pre-coloured ladybug, envelope and flowers: LILY BUG LOVE COLLECTION
Colouring Card: Neenah Solar White
Colours used: Skin: 91, 89, 30, 31 + 28 – Hair: 99, 97 + 26 – Eyes: 73 - Black: 99, 98, 97, 96 – Red: 33, 24, 26
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Tags’ – Sue Wilson ‘Fern Trio’
Others: Lace - Ribbon – Gems – Faux stitching

So catch the bug and buzz off over to THE BLOG and join in with our challenge.  The Anything Goes theme means there’s no reason not to! And don’t forget to visit the STORE  and as it’s….
