Digi Choosday Challenge – Week 30: Animals!

Hello!  Hope all is well with you and yours!

It’s Choosday so it’s time for our new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme this week is Animals! As always we have a fab prize on offer so check out the BLOG for details and as it is also DISCOUNT DAY you must grab the code to get money off in the POLKADOODLES SHOP!

Just before I start I wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you who take the time to comment on my strange creations! It means the world to me and I really do appreciate it.  Unfortunately I have not been quite so generous with MY comments just lately but that is because I hurt my back while moving some furniture (note to self...that's what guys are for) so I have been struggling with the pain a bit. Getting better now though thank goodness so normal service should be resumed forthwith!!  You haven’t got rid of me yet!! Ha, ha!!

So anyway, back to the job in hand!  A couple of weeks ago our lovely Scatty Jan used non-Christmas images, the gorgeous ODDELLA GIRLS, to create some amazing Christmas tags that you can see here!  So being inspired by this I decided to use OCTAVIA MOONFLY UNICORN to create a non-traditional Christmas card! 

The papers, sleigh and sentiment are all from the FESTIVE HOLLYBOBS COLLECTION and I turned our OCTAVIA into Santa’s Little Helper!! Either that or she is nicking all the pressies!!! Oi, bring them back!! J
Sleigh, Papers and Sentiment: FESTIVE HOLLYBOBS COLLECTION
Dies: Sue Wilson ‘Snowflake Border’ – Joy snowflakes – Tattered Lace ‘Winter Town’
Card: Neenah Solar White
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers and pencils
Others: Gems - Skinny ribbon

So giddy up off to the blog to join in with this fab challenge.   And check out the store  too but don’t forget to grab the DISCOUNT CODE first to get your money off! Please don’t miss out!!

Thanks so much for looking and for all your wonderful comments! Have a lovely day!

Colourful hugs
