Right time to see what the team have for us! 

Anjie -  When I saw the new digi images in the Polkadoodles store one of them reminded me of me so much I had to have it. Why did it remind me of me I here you ask, well once when I went to visit my friend in Spain, she didn't recognise me as I had died my hair and I was wearing a hat! So the image is Maddie Twirling Curls and here she is!

I chose these two colours as they are my favourite colours and my hair used to be that shade of blue and at the moment is purple! Maddie is coloured with my Graph'It markers and the papers and flowers are from the Dollie Goes East collection download . The postcard stamp and message are from the Postcard stamp set.

Scatty Jan I loved this challenge , and making my little case. I used two of the papers from the digi bundle Kath (flowers were punched from the same)- I used the postcard and clock from the Rose Budd Collection.
Platinum stickles on the lock and black diamond stickles on flower middles. A small legnth of twine for the handles and popped on a mini key. Frayed burlap distress ink , the eiffel tower button and some sequins (which I opened upside down - 60g of sequins over my desk!)

Julie - For my card I used the wonderful Dollie image, fan image, ticket, sentiment circle and papers from the wonderful Dollie Daydream Goes East download available at Polkadoodles Digiworld Store
I really loved both the circle sentiment and ticket sentiment - The images are also available on the Dollie Daydream goes east CD available at Polkadoodles

Patty - Oh boy! I just started making Christmas Card so I made a very cute Xmas one... using the lovely CD collection Magical Winter I . I printed out the cute Santa's Workshop Pinguin and matching it up with some Kraft and Red papers from the collection. I added the 2 red dotted ribbon on top in the middle between both papers.... maybe you can't see it but I add some shadow to the image using my prisma colors and to finished off the Bright Gold satin ribbon on the left top corner.  What can I say I love Chrismtas cards, so I started early this year!!!

Wendy - As soon as I saw this weeks challenge, I knew which image I wanted to use, the Carriage from the Rose Budd Collection. The backing papers and the paper used for the flowers are also from there. I've used the flourishes from one of the new cutting files and resized them on the Silhouette.

Yvonne -  Hello there everyone! Well this weeks theme is Travel/Holidays, well I decided to use Enfys Digistamp Bundle from the Digiworld Downloadables section of Polkadoodles. This is amazing value for money this bundle, you get the image and 5 papers!! I chose to use two of the papers for Enfys. I decided that this image suggested that she had been traveling and has had a good time by the looks of all them shopping bags!!! The image is coloured with my Graph'It Markers, a full list of colours are on my blog. The postcards are embellishments from the beautiful Rose Budd Collection. Some ribbon, flowers and pearls, topped of with a wee wooden butterfly embellishment.

Sharon - I have just returned from my vacation so this weeks theme travel/holidays seems so fitting. I have used the caravan section from Work and Play 3. I printed out the matching cloud paper and matted it onto some blue card. I then used a strip of the road paper and die cut some grass to finish my background. The caravan was the printed 4 times and I have cut various sections of it to decoupage it. The little character with his knotted hankie sits neatly at the front whilst I have printed one of the sentiments onto yellow card as the sunshine!

Crafting Vicky When I looked at the challenge that we have right now... I thought hmmm travel as in getting away from it all right?!?  So for my make I used the fabulous Office, Colored from the work and play 2 collection.  And I added some papers from Classic heart papers.  This is what I came up with!  Hope you like it!  Man... now I want to get away lol

Great makes as always!
