Daisy Doodles - Anything Goes

Good Morning Peeps!! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I had a busy weekend doing a Christmas Fayre & sorting out bits & pieces for Christmas.

This week at Daisy Doodles we have a nice easy challenge for you - Anything Goes!!! Well, almost anything lol!! The only thing we ask is that you make sure that you use an image from Daisy Doodles or this week's sponsor

Right onto my project. I thought I might try some more treat bags for Christmas & remember seeing last year some bags of Reindeer Poop!!! So I have come up with my alternative - Polar Bear Poop lol!!!!

I printed the Polar Bears onto paper & coloured with Promarkers. I cut 2 scalloped ovals on my bug. I then popped some mini marshmallows into cello bags & tied the tags on with organza ribbon. xx Clare x

Daisy Doodles Challenge #21 - Land, Sea & Air

Well good morning to all you lovely peeps in Blogland. Well whaat a horrible day it is here in Essex. The good thing is its a perfect day for keeping warm & doing all those wonderful crafty things.
Right before I get on with this week's challenge I have to tell you about an exciting event that is happening over at the Daisy Doodles store.

Starting today, whenever you purchase something from the store, you will be sent a ticket number. You will get a number per item bought (for sets bought you get 2 tickets), not per order.
So, say you buy a $1 stamp and a stamp set, you will be given 3
ticket numbers.

The raffle itself will start on 10th November, each day a winner will be randomly picked to win one stamp.
Then 23rd November will be the main draw.
One ticket number will be chosen to win an unreleased set entitled
'12 days of Christmas'

Right onto this week's challenge. We are being sponsored this week by Bonibleaux Designs. They are offering you the chance to win 3 stamps of your choice.

Daisy Doodles has this brilliant set of digistamps available called Doodlebug. I know for a fact that I will be playing with these images for a very long time to come. I have a lot of "bug" lovers in my family lol!! I coloured the image using Promarkers & followed the Sketch from Sketch Saturday. I just love the wave designs on the side of this car. xx Clare x

Good Morning Everyone. It is a lovely sunny morning here in Essex, if not a bit blustery. I have a fab card for you all this morning covering 2 DT projects. But to start off with a little bit of housekeeping that I need to get done.

Unfortunately the winner of my blog candy from September never came forward so I have re-drawn the winner on This time comment #22 Angie Congratulations & could you please contact me at with your address.

Right onto this week at Moving Along With The Times. I have great pleasure in not only being asked to take up my regular spot as their guest designer but to be sponsoring them as well so please pop over & join in this week. Hazel has provided a great sketch for you to follow & there is an open theme.

I have managed to combine my card with a Daisy Doodle image so this will be my card for Daisy Doodle this week as well.

I have used these fab MME papers that I got from Debbie last year. Unfortunately the camera hasn't picked up all the glitter on the papers. I have coloured the bear in using a mixture of Promarkers & Copics. I will be glad when the day comes where I have all the colours & only need to use one brand or the other. I added glitter gems to all the scallops on the card although these don't seem to have picked up :-( xx Clare x
