wk 1 - Thanks...Digi Choosday Crafting Challenge

Happy Choosday everyone!
The whole team at Digi Choosday wish each and everyone of you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015!

We are back with the start of our challenges for this year and I’m sure the team will blow us away as much as they did last year with their fantastic makes.

Before we get onto the challenge I want to share a brand new release with you! If you head on over to Polkadoodles  you will find a brand new Work & Play collection ready and on the shelves ready to ship! It is Work & Play 8 which is all themed around music. 
So go grab your copy quick as it is flying off the shelves and it's as fabulous as always, jam packed full of digi goodies!!

If you look in the New in  section of the shop you will also find that the images and papers that go with them are also available as downloads, how good is that! 

Right onto the first challenge of the year. The first one we have set is 
We thought you might all like to send a few Thank You cards/gifts for all the lovely goodies you received at Christmas, and we are here to give you some inspiration for those cards. You have until 20th January 2015 to enter and the winners will be announce on 27th January 2015.
Our winner will receive 3 downloads from the brand new Music collection worth £6.75/$10 USD! Woohoo!!

The winners of the last challenge of last year can be found at the bottom of this post.

So let’s see what the design team have made for us.....

Anjie - The image I have used is Octavia Thinking and is coloured with my Graph'It Markers. The papers are from the Work & Play Collection 1 download which is also available as a CD should you wish. I have made rolled roses from the same papers and the die cuts are from Tattered Lace. I have added some faux stitching on the papers and a border around the image with a black fine liner to give extra interest.
Crafting Vicky - I figured for this challenge that I would do something a bit different.  It's a Thank you tag that goes on top of a wine bottle!  Perfect to bring as a thank you gift to your host.  I used a great image from the so cute set Winston Deluxe Collection but you can also get him separate here Winston Bear Get in touch.  The paper is also from that collection.

Caz Here is my Thank you creation. I have used the lovely Octavia Bird in hand, available as a digi here. Papers are  from Rose Papers download bundle. Sentiment is from Work n Play 6.

Scatty Jan For my Thank you card I have used the lovely digi Luna, I printed her out onto Ultimate Graphic and coloured her using Graph'It Markers. The Paper and flowers and leaves are all from The Rose Budd collection

Tanya - Happy New Year everybody!!!  Let’s hope 2015 is going to be a very very good one.  So onto this week’s challenge which is ‘Thanks’ and I've made a card featuring one of the Dollie Goes East characters (Dollie Goes East Boat) together with one of the awesome colourful papers.  You can get your copy on download HERE or on a CD HERE
I've decoupaged the character and finished the card off with glitter, glaze and the letter embellishments to spell out the words ‘Thank You’.  Full details can be seen on my blog.

Kate - Happy 2015 People :) I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year. No doubt we all need to make or have made lots of Thank You cards for the pressies we received, I used 'Etty Shy' on my card. For full details please visit my blog 

Nikki - Wow! 2015 already..... Happy New Years everyone! Hope you all have a happy, healthy and prosperous one...... This challenge is all about saying "Thanks". This little cutie that I inked up with my Copics is Luna. I also used the polka dotted paper from the Winston pack! 

Monica.- Every New Year is the perfect time to give thanks for all the blessings you have received. For my "Thanks" project I made a 3d card using the lovely Lily´s Bikeride  digital stamp and papers from the collections Daisy Papers and Classic Heart Papers.

Wendy - For this weeks card I've used the Guitar Boy, available as an individual digi and the backing paper is from the Guitar Theme bundle of papers. Both of these are also available on the full Work & Play 8 Collection, together with the fully coloured version of the Guitar Boy, as are the musical note cutting files.

Yvonne - Hello there and a Happy New Year to you! For this weeks challenge I opted to use 'Piper with Bunches' which is one of girls from the Pretty Sweet Collection (there's a rumour going round there are more on the way - but you didn't hear this from me so.............shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh).  I cut out the Thank You on my Cameo and went over it with purple pan pastel.  The papers are from the Kath Bundle which is a STEAL for the price of it, you get an image and 5 matching paprers for £2.25!!! BARGAIN.  The flourish and flowers are from the Back to Nature Bundle. I added some ribbon and she's all ready to go! 
Jane – Hi everyone! Happy New Year!  Hope you had a lovely Christmas! So for my ‘Thanks’ project I used the gorgeous Dollie Daydream – Ready for Rain (love her fabulous hair) and some of the elements and papers from the Winston Deluxe Full Collection.  Have a good day! xxx

Lynda - I decided to make a card to say thankyou to the health care professionals that took care of my brother when he was in an accident. The digi (Ben wheelchair) and the beautiful digi papers are from the Work and Play 6 collection that is available here on cd or here as an instant download. More details on my blog.

Emma - For my Thank You card i have kept it very simple & have used Octavia Thinking which can be found Here. I have coloured her up using Copics & have added a bow & a few beads & pearls as embellishments.
