Jane – Hello! So using the uber gorgeous brand new collection from Nikky LILY BUG LOVE I decorated a birdcage tea-light holder.  I've added is a small picture tutorial to go with this and further details, with words!, can be found on my blog!  Have a happy crafty day! xxx

Gail - No decision for me this week, with the Not A Card theme, it just had to be a tag! I couldn't resist using the every so adorable and lush new collect Lily Bug Love, you can get the full collection on CD-Rom here or as a Digital Download here. Isn't Lily Bug fabulous, just love her, I can see so many ways to use this collection for my crafty makes.

Lynda  I have used the Sticks & Bones collection available as a download and a CD version to make a gift box.  More details can be found on my blog.

Anjie I have used different collections to create this. The embellies are from the Twiggy and Toots collection. And the paper and flowers are from the Eden collection. I've shaped all the flowers with a ball tool and added some pearls to the centres of them. More details on my blog.

Julie --  The nursing home where I work has 24 4th grade pen pals visiting in a couple weeks.  I need treat bags!  The newest Polkadoodles collection is perfect for 4th grade pen pals! This preprinted image, frame, digital paper, and sentiment are all part of the Sticks & Bones Digital Download Collection.  It's also available in CD.  The only thing I added was the pre-made treat bag and the glimmer tape.  Fun!  Only 23 more to go and I'll have this project done.  Woohoo!

Monica.- I love all the dimension of shadow boxes, so for this week I chose to use the adorable Sticks & Bones to create a shadow box with one of its lovely characters. I used a pre coloured image because I love it´s bright colors and the perfect shading. All the papers, elements and sentiment are from this lovely collection, that is full of possibilities to create the perfect prehistoric scene.

Fiona - For my not a card make this week I have used  work and play 9  Love and Kisses  I have made a gift box ideal as a wedding gift box. I have used a pre-coloured image called wedding Car,  the papers and sentiment are from this great collection I have also used a punch to stamp flowers from the gorgeous papers on the CD.

Helen - my 'not a card' project is a very simple little Post-It Note holder.  These are really quick and simple to make but they've been really popular with the ladies at both the craft classes I teach.  I've printed off one of the pages from the Adult Colouring Pages Bundle 1 which is here on the Polkadoodles website.  I cut a section of the page and coloured it with Promarkers.  The label on the front of the pad is computer generated and I used paper from the 'Serenity Fairy Wishes Download' which is here.  Inside I added some more of the paper and a nice pink Post-It pad.

Aunty Sue - Now with all the lovely New collections Nikky has just brought out I couldnt resist making a Tag with the Brand New Lily Bug. I have used a Pre coloured image from the collection and all the elements and papers are all found in it. You can purchase Lily Bug from the shop as a Cd and also a Download for those that cant wait to play HERE

Audrey once again chose images, sentiments, embellies and papers from Sticks and Bones Full Download Collection.  I made a coaster set with the images Ferocious Friends/Dinosaur and Mammoth Friends/Dinosaur.  I also used sentiments which can be found all together in Sticks & Bones Dinosaur Sentiments Bundle as well as in the Full Collection.  Flowers are also from the full collection as well as Sticks and Bones Flowers/Foliage Bundle.  I sure hope you like it, I know you will love this new bundle!! 

Tanya for this week's not a card challenge I've made some bookmarks from the feather adult colouring page available in the Colour Therapy Club 3B collection.  I've used two different types of pens to colour them to make them look pastel and bright and cut round them.  More details on my blog.
