Christmas is-a-comin', and Delicious Doodles are BACK!!!

Happy Friday all, and a HUGE Welcome Back to the Delicious Doodles Challenges!  That's it, Summer is officially over and the team have gathered once more to create some wonderful creations with Teri's fantastic images.  We have some fantastic themes to whet your appetite over the coming months, and to kickstart you off, the theme this week is "A Fresh Start"   The task is to use something new on your project and show it on the challenge blog.  You don't have to use one of the billions of fab images that Teri has on offer, (but it would be lovely if you did!).  Once you have delivered your project the Doodlies will choose their favourite and the winner will be allowed to choose 5 digi images from the shop!

So please pop over there, get your stash out and get creating.  If you want some inspiration, take a look at the fabulous creations that the girls have been making, and please say a big HELLO to our new teamies, Suzy (Ike), Jane, Jodi,  and Helen (Croms). 

Without further ado, here is my offering using Teri's "Snowy Postbox".  This is a gorgeous nostalgic image that really appeals to me and I know that it will appear on many of my Christmas cards this year!  There is also a US Mailbox version available - go check it out!

My 'new' thing is the nestie I used to cut the appertures.  Although in one sense they're not brand new to me - they were a Mother's Day gift earlier this year - this is only the second time I have used them, so technically, they are new!  The image is new to me too as this is the first time I have used it.

Well I hope to see as many of you as possible over at the DDChallenges.  Just to let you know also that from today, the challenges are going to be fortnightly so you have lots of time to enter - you can enter up to 3 times if you like! 

Thanks for stopping by here, and have a great weekend! :o) xx

Shabby Tea Room - Birthstones

Very quick post from me today - I seem to have found my blogging legs again and am really enjoying playing about with paper and inks again.

Here is a CAS card for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge which is 'Birthstones'.  As I've just had my 49th birthday last week, I guess that makes me Peridot.  The Westie die has been sitting in my stash for quite a few months now so as I'm on a drive to use up everything I own before splashing out on anything new, I decided that it was his turn to take centre stage! 

Hope you enjoy, thanks for popping in! :o) xx
