Digi Choosday Challenge – Christmas Sparkles!

Good morning!  Hope all is well with you and yours!

It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme this week is Christmas Sparkles! So get out those gems and all that glitter and play along! As always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details and as it is also DISCOUNT DAY you need to grab the code to get a COLOSSAL reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP!

So have you been swept up in the new colouring book mania that’s happening right now?  Nikky Hall has created some amazing colouring pages for you to download HERE so that you can print on any card or paper you choose and in any size you choose. What a fab idea!

You can also join the COLOUR THERAPY CLUB which is exactly what I did and this is one of the amazing images you can download this month.
Boy was this a labour of love.  When I thought I had finished all the mistletoe another sprig seemed to appear up out of nowhere. Great fun though, even if my pencils are all blunt now!! J

  3. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Did I mention gorgeous?

    I like the idea of the printables far more than the books (basically they're just detailed digi's really...), as I've found the books all have thin and/or porous pages, so Promarkers are out. And I personally really don't like colouring with pencils. Being able to print things onto my regular colouring card makes far more sense! :-) x

  4. This is just stunning Jane & i'm not surprised it took a long time as there is so much detail xx

  5. Jane in answer to your question, the Lyra's are fab to use, I have some of the giant ones too which are really vibrant in colour and purchased some more at our Office Works yesterday, they are hard to get in a tin but managed to get single ones. Sadly being in Australia I won't qualify for the pencil prize but hey, I would pay postage as they are good. Trying to use my pencils now more so than markers, which are getting dearer to replace. Keep up the great inspiration.xx

Wowzer Jane that is one amazing picture that you have coloured to perfection, I think you have done a sterling job, I think I would have given up probably before I started seeing all the wonderful festive content, lol, I love the colours you have used, it is a picture that makes you want to stare at it and keep staring there is something a little magical about it, ACE make
