It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 40 - Feeling Cold Ice & Snow

Hello everybody             

Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  This week’s challenge is ‘Feeling Cold Ice & Snow’.

But before I get onto my make for this week’s DT inspiration -------- get out the cake and bunting as I’ve been on the team with Digi Choosday for a whole year !!!!  Where has that year gone???  I’m still as happy as the first day of joining the team and I hope you will see that my makes have got better and better over the weeks and I’ve really thought out of the box some weeks and extended my crafting repertoire.  Here’s to another year with Digi Choosday.

So onto this week’s make.

A few weeks ago I visited Hobbycraft and bought some little MDF/wooden reindeers (amongst other things) and thought they’d be great for this week’s theme of feeling cold especially if I covered them with some blue snowflake paper.  You see, to me, the colour that conjures up cold is blue and so a quick look through some of the fab papers on the Festive Hollybobs collection had me running to my printer and using some Mod Podge to cover the fab MDF reindeers.  The sentiments, mini bows and the heart embellies are also from the same collection.  Click on the Thumb Linkies below for details.

Here is my make:

These are the ingredients I’ve used:

  • Ultimate Graphic paper to print on
  • 2 MDF reindeers
  • Mod Podge
  • Mod Podge Glitter for final coat
  • Tim Holtz Disress Ink – Tumbled Glass (for the edges)
  • Sandpaper to distress the paper
  • Deco Art Glistening Snow Writer
  • Stickles Glitter Glue in Xmas Red

I can’t wait to see your creations this week.  And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home d├ęcor to cards, just remember to follow the rules listed in the blog.  And not only can you win a fabulous prize if you are in the top 3/random prize winner but you can also grab your discount code.  How fab is that?  The discount code only lasts for a short amount of time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it. 

Why not join in our Facebook groups as well.  Just search for Digi Choosday and Polka Doodles Crafting and ask to join the groups to join in all the fun.  It’s a great community group to join in with and show off your Polka Doodles makes.  There’s always one of the Design Team around to have a natter with and offer guidance and inspiration, so don’t be shy….head on over there right now!!!
