The winners of Week43 are at the end of this post.

Over to the Design Team to see what they've made this week...

Stephanie.... I've always wondered how all the creatures and characters of the North Pole lived. It's in the North Pole Cottages of course! Think of this advent calendar as a apartment complex of sorts for all the inhabitants of the North Pole. I created this adorable advent calendar using the Winnie White Christmas and Winnie Winter Land. Both kits are filled with so much holiday yumminess that it was hard to decide which pieces to use!

Merlina I made an easel card with Winnie-white-christmas-big-kahuna collection...



Scatty Jan: For my card this week I have used the lovely Winnie White Christmas. I have Polychromos and Graph'It Markers to colour up alongside some glitter.

Angie J: I have used 2 of the Topper Sheets from the Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna Kit to create these gorgeous tags.



Michelle: For this project I have used a pre-coloured image Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna Kit
I also used the papers, embellishments and word art to make this project this kit is so versatile

Tina: This time I pimped a candle again and used for this the design sheets from Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna download Kit. I have printed some of the sheets on silk paper and then carefully applied to the candle with a hair dryer.

Ania: For my card I used Hyacinth, from the The Darling Buds collection and colored them with alcohol markers...

Anjie - I have used the Winnie Winterland collection, and the Polkadoodles Elegant Nest set of 3 dies for my card. A full tutorial on how I made it from scraps is on my blog.

Sabrina: I used the awesome Winnie Winterland - Big Kahuna digital craft download Bundle : cards, embellishments, sheets, and colored digis, to create my 2017 advent calendar. I cut it all up with my cameo silhouette. The numbers are Winnie White Christmas Alphabet digi download. More details on my blog...

Bev here, I've been a little short on time this week so used a pre coloured image from Winnie White Christmas and cut it out with my favourite die Bubbleicious Fame. the pretty corners and some printed vellum also add a little bit of layered interest. Not forgetting, gemstones, glitter & ribbon of course.

Sharon - For this week's Challenge I have used The Winnie White Christmas BIG KAHUNA Kit available here and I've used the lovely Winnie Santa digi stamp.

Amy This is my first challenge as part of this wonderful Design Team and I'm so excited to share my card with you. I'm using Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs. This set has so much that you will love. I'm using a pre colored image, one of the fun colorful papers that comes in the set and one of the many sentiments. Hope you like it!!!

As always, Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you this week and some beautiful makes from our newest team members...

- all super talented ladies and we're thrilled to have them joining us, make sure you check out and follow all the team's blogs for some great inspirational creative makes.
So let's head to the Design Team and see what they've all made this week...
their challenge spin is 'A hint of colour but mainly white'...this one should help give you some great ideas for all those wintery festive cards you need to start making!...
Helen - Its getting closer.... yep Christmas is a coming so we need a bit of Winnie White Christmas I think. This is one of the fabulous digi images of Winnie and her winter friends, I coloured it up with copics but have left everything mainly white makes her really stand out. I used one of the lush papers as they sky and a sentiment from the collection to.
Ruth:   I've used Holly Sparkles Christmas Unicorn from the Winnie White collection.  Coloured with Promarkers plus some die cut snowflakes, lots of sparkle and organza ribbons; cute!
Jacki  For my card I have used Winnie White Christmas for both image and papers I coloured inage with polychromo and pablo pencils (may have got a little carried away) the wording and flowers are die cuts from my stash

Norma  for my card I used one of the digis from Winnie White Christmas, I colored her with my copic markers and I tried to make it in very soft blue, I love pastel colors. and I think this card will be perfect for my niece.
Anna  I created a white shadow box and decorated it with Christmas balls that are in the kit Winnie Winterland. Each ball is made up of 5 shapes each other. I then decorated it with leaves drawn from a paper and a red bow pasted over a fine white bow.
Lisa - For my make today I have made a Christmas card using papers and a digi from the Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs Full Download Collection
Vannessa - For my first DT project I used the gorgeous Octavia Frosted Winter Collection. I coloured the Bear Hugs digi stamp with my Copics, fussy cut it out and then added it to one of the Frosted Lands background images before mounting it onto some of the other patterned paper in the collection.
Carol for my card this week I have used a lovely snowflake background paper from Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun collection. I then used Polar Family from the  Octavia Frosted Winter Collection and coloured it with my copics matching  the background paper colours.

We thank you all for taking part in our challenges.  We love coming to visit and seeing all your wonderful creations.  See you next week!...

THE WINNERS OF OUR LAST CHALLENGE WK40/41 ARE AT THE END OF THIS POST




We have lots and lots of new items in the Polkadoodles store, so make sure you go and check them out - our latest Stamp of The Month is a real must-have and we are already running low on Christmas stamps so don't miss them!





So let's see what the DT have made this week...


Ruth:  I've made a cute kraft card gift box - the box die is from Sizzix (it came with the Big Shot!) and I've used papers from Winnie White Christmas to make the gift bow - layered onto the off cuts of kraft card from making the box.
Jacki  Now when we as a DT have a theme and it's 'not a card' I panic it's out my comfort zone but today I did it Istepped out og my comfort zone and made a little Winne Bauble I tok a pre coloured winnie fussy cut her out twice then die cut about 12 circles from papers from the festive Christmas collection  finished off with a large red bell.
Carol - I've made a Christmas tag using Winnie Winterland tags and frames. I created my tag on my computer before printing it out and cutting it out using a scalloped circle die - much easier than fussy cutting the leafy garland. I then added a ribbon and it's ready to hang.
Helen - OOw love it when its not a card for the DT, it means I can use my planner and fill it with lots of Winnie White Christmas goodies. So I printed off some of the pre-coloured images and embellies, made them into stickers and cut them out and used them to decorate a page in my Christmas planner.

Norma This is the season to make presents and to share with your friends some love,  so I made a flip book to share with one of my crafty friend some of my favorites things I use to make my crafts.  I used Winnie Winterland and Winnie White Christmas to decorate it.
Lisa - I find it really fiddly wrapping small gifts at Christmas Time so for my make today I have used papers from Work & Play Festive Hollybobs Full Download Collection and a free cutting file for my cutting machine to create a small gift bag. You could also fill the bag with sweet treats!
As always, Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you this week...
