Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week.   The DT's twist on the challenge theme is........CHRISTMAS and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

We would like to welcome another new member to the Polkadoodles Design Team.  Say hello to Norma, she has a wonderful blog and you must pop along and take a look.She has jumped straight in this week, so check out her creation below, along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team :-)

Norma.- For my first project as a DT in Polkadoodles,  I decided to make a winter card that hides a gift card, I  used  MissPretty that was released  in June and some of the trees for the kit  Winnie Winterland  I colored it with my copic markers. I think that it can be super cute for a little girl.

Ruth:  I've used one of the soon to be released Christmas stamps!  I've combined Frosty The Snowman with the Christmas Gifts stamp.  All coloured with Promarkers and added to an acetate card.  Such cute stamps and perfect for kids!

Helen - Christmas will soon be here so I'm starting on the gift bags for those pressies and you can't beat this little Owl Gift Bag. It's a template from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Collection, bet you didn't know that was there and soooo easy to make, just print , cut and stick!! You can find it right here.

Karon - I have used the fabulous new Polkadoodles Stamp sets on my card today.  The Christmas Poinsettia/Holy set and the Christmas Santa Claus set.  I am not one for colouring, so I stamped the Poinsettia out several times on green then red papers (my papers are from the wonderful Festive Christmas collection), then I fussy cut the poinsettia and layered it up with some foam tape.  Then stamped the sentiment onto the blue paper - perfect.

Carol - Today I have made a Christmas card with papers from the  Festive Christmas collection and topped it with Hollybobs Santa from the Work and Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs collection.  To make the cutting out easier, I combined Hollybobs Santa and the background paper he is on before I printed it. Then I used some nesting dies to cut each layer before assembling the card - so it was much easier than fussy cutting Hollybobs Santa, though I did fussy cut the flower.

Lisa - I have made a card today using papers and embellishments from the Festive Christmas Download.

Craftica - Today I used Winnie Winterland - Design Sheet 13  to create little messages to add to my daughter's classmates little presents for the last day in school, I'm working on everything ahead of time as she usually gets a lot of brilliant ideas the night before going on Holiday.

Shylaa - I have fallen in love with Ula's Life. I have created a Christmas card with Ula life journal stamp. Adhered the pattern paper to the card base. Added the postage die cut panel above it with foam tape. Tied a twine around it. Decorated the diecut panel with 3d stickles and sequins.The Ula image is water coloured with staedtler colour pencils and did a fussy cut and adhered to the diecut panel.

Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you.
