Challenge 42 - GO PINK

Well hello my lovelies

I do hope to find all you lovely crafters well out there and finding some time to get your craft on??
I find the colder months are the perfect time to craft away the days!

This fortnight is a very Special Challenge, its rather close to my heart and I know a lot of women and men will feel the same


Yip, its almost the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we decided that the best way to end it was wit a good old PINK challenge! We want you to go very girly and make a very very very PINK crafty creation! Just make anything at all you fancy but its gotta be PINK!

We have two prizes up for grabs this time

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrap booking  I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Winner gets $10 voucher for their shop


One lucky winner will win a Special prize donated by MELLY

Two fab prizes for 2 lucky winners!
Here's some PINK inspiration from the team to get you all crafting



Now remember please follow our rules to be eligible for our prizes and just add your name in the linky below! We look forward to seeing all you PINK creations

Challenge 41 - Celebrations

Happy Sunday everyone

I do hope you are all having an extra nice weekend, maybe having a wee romantic weekend away or a enjoying a wee crafty day! Whatever your doing I hope you'll join in with our new challenge!


Another easy wee challenge for everyone to play along with!
Remember you can make anything to enter into our Challenges as long as it follows the RULES and matches or challenge theme!

Now prize time!!

This fortnight we're lucky to be sponsored by

Digi Doodle Shop actually started forming over three years ago. My mother's and my love for the arts, and my addiction to the Internet, prompted us to start making digital scrapbook kits. It wasn't long into creating scrap kits for personal use that I went over to the commercial side, and not long again before I was introduced to digital stamps. Being so fascinated with how the digital stamps can be used to make beautiful creations, it didn't take Mom or me long before we realised what we wanted to do.
Our hope is that the stamps we make inspire the creativity in you, and brings you much joy. We aim to please, so if you do not find something you want, we would love to hear from you. Nothing brings us more pleasure than to be able to bring someone else's vision to life.
We want your experience here at Digi Doodle Shop to be the best that it can be, and a pleasurable one that you will take with you. Should you ever have any questions, concerns, or would just like us to get to know each other a little better, please feel free at anytime to contact us at

Please note Digi Doodle is sadly closing but the winner will still get their prize

prize $10 voucher
