Here, a little belatedly is my final completed adventdoodle calendar. You can now see a full post containing all the wonderful finished calendars from all the participants on Faye Brown’s blog.
We’re now over half way through the Advent Doodle challenge, and I’ve been doodling away in the background, so today I thought I’d share with you a selection of doodles that didn’t all make it to the final calendar. It’s been a really fun experience and I’ve enjoyed experimenting with my style on some subjects I wouldn’t usually tackle. I’m quite pleased with the results and I hope you like them too. If you pop over and visit Faye Brown’s blog, you can also view her posts showcasing some of her favourite doodles so far and she very kindly included my robin in her first showcase.

I’ve finally made a few cards for this year, so I thought I’d share them. I used the digi papers, snowflake, sentiment and tree graphics from my Festive Flakes collection and they were all very simple to make. I used some 125mm x 125mm pale blue and white textured card blanks, a sheet of inkjet printable organza from Crafty Computer Papers, a few assorted scraps of silver organza, some glitter card, some stick-on pearls and my trusty sewing machine with some silver metallic thread.
I printed one of my digi papers onto the printable organza and a couple of others onto paper, then I cut them, and the other scraps of organza and glitter card, into squares of varying sizes. It was all fairly random, I then layered a selection of these squares in the middle of the card front and stitched them onto the card front using a medium zig-zag stitch in metallic thread. I topped them off with the embellishments and a sentiment panel which I printed out on glossy photo paper and fixed using 3d sticky dots.
I hope you like them.
