Chillin' with my snowmies!

It's Mary J here and I'm doing really well with my Christmas cards this year.  Only a little more than four weeks to the special event and I think I'm nearly there with all my cards!  So here is another one using one of the fun digis by Whimsie Doodles calleSnowmies...




I love this digi and the sentiment that comes with it is perfect with it!  You can buy the duo on its own or save money and buy the December collection with 13 fun Christmas images (I got this and it's fab!).

Now if you're waiting to see who the new Design Team members are, please bear with us as we wait for a couple more to confirm with us - we will let you know as soon as we can!

Watch out - it's a geeky Christmas!

Hi everybody!  Mary J here with a Christmas card for my hubby.  Now I don't tell everyone this because I like to think I'm a sophisticated lady (hah!) but I'm secretly a geek and love all things fantasy and sci-fi and luckily so is my husband!  He isn't into my card making either so it's so hard to make one that he likes but I think he's going to love this one - what do you think?



Brilliant image, huh?!  He's called Obi Wan to Kiss and he's just perfect for hubby!  I kept the layout pretty simple - he's certainly not into anything fussy which is just as well with my usual CAS style!  I used My Minds Eye papers and the label and heart dies from the SugarPea Designs Sugar Cuts Layered Treat Label set.

So before I go, just a reminder that our DT call is still open for a couple more days.  Check out this post here for all the deets.  And I'll see you again soon - ta ta for now!

Santa Knows...

Hi everyone!
Laura here today, and I wanted to let you know that Melyssa put some new digis in the store for you! Be sure to have a look!

I colored up Santa from the new Santa and Friends set, and popped him up on a simple card. He is colored with Copics and I added a little fluff to his hat and coat with a Marvy Snow Marker.


I'm thinking I might just put this up on the fridge... remind the kids that Santa is watching! ;)

Have a great Sunday, and thanks for visiting!

Christmas doggie love!

Hi everyone!  It's Mary J here with a Christmas card using one of my all time favourite animals - a dog!  I love the Whimsie Doodles animals - very cute and this Winter Dog is one of the cutest!



Oh I love him!  I used K & Company papers, A candy cane Cuttlebug embossing folder, a Lil' Inker Designs sentiment and a Paper Smooches bone die.

You can buy this little guy on his own or in the Christmas December Collection with 12 other cute and fabulous digis.  I've got the set so you'll be seeing more from this collection over the coming weeks.

Thanks for visiting and don't forget we have a DT call on at the moment - I hope you'll apply!

You are outta this world!

Hi everyone, it's Mary J here to share a card I made for a little boy's birthday...



Ain't that little fella the cutest?!!  Whenever I look at him, I just wanna say "wheeee!".  He's from the Space Cadets set and the background is from the Background Borders Places set.  I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder and used some metallic cardstock to create the porthole.  And I even got to use up some of the hundreds of eyelets in my stash!

There is still plenty of time to join in this month's challenge of Kinda Spooky.  You don't have to use a WD image but we love it when you do!  I hope you can join us for a chance to win a digi of your choice or even get to be a Guest Artist if you do use a WD image!

Thank you for visiting and I will back soon with another Doodlelicious Diva make!

Lunchbox Notes

Hi everyone! It's Laura here with you today, and I've got a really fun and simple project to share!

I used an older digi set called Halloween Tags to make some little lunchbox notes for my kiddos! I love the cute jokes on the tags, and I thought the kids would get a kick out of finding these in their lunchboxes on Halloween!

(front view - jokes)

This was really easy to do... the digi file includes a "Quick Print" image, with all of the tags lined up. I just printed the fronts and backs of the tags to fill the full sheet of paper. Once cut, each tag is about the size of a business card.


I simply matted the tags with black cardstock, glued the joke to the front, and the punchline to the back! So easy!

(back view - answers)

That's all for this time!
Thanks so much for visiting!
