  Irre:  Hello everyone. For this month I folded a box. Just this one is called a fold-over box. I had a lot of fun with it. Decorated it with wonderful paper and I did some coloring to with flowers from three different stamp sets. 

Like always I also added art stones, micro beads and some stones that you use to flower pots. I love the effect the window in the box made. Or what do you think? 

Polkadoodles products used

Jane – Hello everyone! I have created a Christmas card using the fabulous Weirdre, making her into a Christmas Angel on top of the tree.

All Polkadoodles products used:

Hazel To make this pop-up, I Used a Black Card Stock: 12'x6' inch , Folded the card into half, then the first fold in the half is again folded in half. 
I added a 12'x2' inch black card stock strip for the pop up & used the paper packs to design the card. For the Pop up images I used the die & Stamped the butterflies and sentiments using the honey rose stamp. 
Add embossing texture paste for the emboss effect below the pots and below the sprigs & Distress inks  for distressing the leaves and plants, with Rangers Archival Ink Black for the Stamping.

  3. Thanks for all the fabulous inspiration by the DT. I tried to enter with a 4th entry; and it says only 3 are allowed with the Mr. Linky. Your site states the following:
    "You can combine our Challenge with other Blog challenges and we have no restriction on how many challenges you wish to enter, or how many entries you wish to make to this challenge." I am confused.

    Here is my link in case something is wrong and I am allowed to enter.

    Thanks so much. Gloria

  4. Thank you for the challenge. Lovely work by the design team.

  5. Your site says no limit on entries; but Mr. Linky states it is a limit of 3. Here is my next card that I was trying to enter. Thanks so much.

  6. Mr. Linky won't allow but 3 entries and your site says unlimited entries. Could you please either change Mr. Linky or change your site to say only 3 entries. Thanks. I have another entry if it is allowed.

  7. Mr. Linky still not allowing me to enter. Here is my entry. Thanks.
