A Doodlebugging we will go!

If you have ever been here to ScrappyCanuck Studios, you will know that I am a huge fan of Doodlebug Designs Inc. I use their paper and products A LOT!  In fact when I am colouring up images, it is almost exclusively to match Doodlebug product.  The truth is that, while I almost always wear black, I almost always craft in colour – bright colours, happy colours!  And let’s face it – no one does bright, happy colours like Doodlebug!

So this year, I decided to bite the bullet and apply for their design team. It’s always a hard thing for me to do because I have to admit that I am not a huge risk taker.  But I figured that, if nothing else, it would help me share with them how much I appreciate their products and how much fun it adds to my crafty life.  So, I took the risk…

…and it paid off!  So this year, look for even more fun projects with Doodlebug products!  I can’t wait to get started and to work with these talented crafters!

Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to come on over to the Doodlebug blog today!

 

 

Wishing you all the best this Christmas…

…and into the New Year!  Merry Christmas and happy holidays, no matter what you are celebrating this season! I am off to celebrate with family (Christmas Eve is the big day for us) and I hope this season finds you healthy, happy and joyful!

Good morning crafty friends!  If you are feeling a little under the weather right ow like we all are in my house, I have a little card today that will hopefully bring some smiles!

molly-closeupIt’s challenge time at Tiddly Inks (our last on of the year), and I decided to use one of Christy’s newest images – Holly Molly!  Isn’t she sweet with those little fairy wings? I coloured her up with Copics to match some Doodlebug paper, but besides her hair and the bow there actually want’t too much colouring on this one!  She’s a great one if you still have to make some last minute cards – like me!!

Oh, one last thing!  While there is sad news over on the challenge blog, there are also some details about a cute freebie!  So, while you head over to see all the inspiration and to enter the challenge, don’t forget to check for that too!

Well, I am off to make lunches!  Thanks for stopping by!

Sooooo…I thought I was finished….

…but as I started filling in Christmas cards, I realized that while i had enough for all the cards I send, I forgot to take into account the ones I give away at work.  So, it was back to the crafty table this morning (life is tough)!

I decided to work with some digi’s from Whimsie Doodles that I haven’t for a bit. If I remember correctly, I think I used this one for some hot chocolate gift tags a couple of years ago…I might just have to tuck a pouch inside this one too! I cloured the image up with my trusty Copics to match the cute Sugarplums collection from Doodlebug (I am down to my last scraps from this collection…sigh).

And then I decided to add a little Christmas twist to a digi called Penelope.  This dig hold a special place in my heart… both of my daughters wear glasses and this was one of the first images I found that was a character with glasses that wasn’t “nerd” themed (and sadly still one of the few that I have).  I am thinking that I might hang on to this card for my oldest…although I guess that means I will have to make even more cards!

Anyway, I hope that you aren’t still Christmas card making!  But if you are – Whimsie Doodles does have a challenge on right now (and you don’t even have to use a Whimsie Doodles stamp – although, why wouldn’t you?!  They are cute, cute, cute)!

Thanks for stopping by!
