Challenge #10 - Digital images

Happy Monday to everyone! I'm glad that so many people participated in our last challenge! Don't forget to pop back in a little later to see who won the wonderful prize that Ribbon Mad has kindly donated!

This week's challenge is to use digital images
Sponsored by Lily-Boo's Boutique

We have a wonderful sponsor again this week: Lily-Boo's Boutique! They're a great digital image company run by Sam (the illustrator) and her sister Lou. There are a wide variety of images from space themed to elegant flowers to Christmas digis. If you enter our challenge this week using any digital image, you have a chance to win two download sets from their store! Yes, TWO! They currently have 26 collections to choose from and the list is still growing. While you're there, it'll be hard to resist snagging a few, as each collection of 6 images is only 1.99 GBP (~$3.30).

Don't have any digital images? Lily-Boo's Boutique also has some freebies for you to use! Isn't that nice of them to be so generous?

Let's see what the design team has cooked up for you this week!

Angie has created this gorgeous card using a digital image from an upcoming Kaboodle Doodles kit. Make sure to watch out for this new digital collection!

Ann has created a cute card using the newest Lily-Boo's Boutique Birds Collection. Aren't these images so sweet?

Chris has made this fantastic card using Lily-Boo's Boutique More Flower Shapes Collection. She has colored the image so beautifully!

Linda has made this wonderful card using Lily-Boo's Boutique Little Mice Collection. She has added a sweet sentiment and look at that cute bow!
You have until August 9, 2009 11:59 PM GMT to enter the challenge. We can't wait to see your creations! If you're new to our challenges, please refer to the Challenge FAQs section on the sidebar.

Challenge FAQs and reminders

We're really lucky to be getting so many new participants every week! It's wonderful seeing all your creations and how you interpret our challenges. Some of you may be unfamiliar with our challenge guidelines so we're posting them here; you can also find them on our sidebar. As you can see, there are pretty much no rules! We just want you to have fun with our challenges!

We also wanted to remind you of our current DT call (see this post) which will end August 5. We've enjoyed all the applications we've received and it will definitely be a hard choice. Our current challenge, "Buttons and Bows" ends on August 26 at 11:59 PM GMT (UK time) so you still have a few days to enter.

Kaboodle Doodle Challenge FAQs

1. We will post a challenge every other Monday. All entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM GMT (UK time) on Sunday before the next challenge is posted.

2. You do not have to use Kaboodle Doodle products, but if you have them we would love to see them!

3. You do not have to use digital products, unless the challenge calls for it.

4. Your creation must be new and never posted, but you may combine it with as many other challenges as you like. You can create anything your heart desires (card, layout, altered item, etc.) just as long as it fits the challenge theme or sketch.

5. You can enter as many times as you like.

6. For those who do you not blogs, you can post your creation to any online gallery, but if that's not possible, you can email it to the Kaboodle Doodle Team

...and last but not least, HAVE FUN!

Challenge No 9 - Buttons and Bows

This weeks challenge is designed to help you use up some of the buttons and ribbons you have in your stash. I know I have loads and don't use them half as much as I should. Entries for this challenge will be accepted until July 27 and the winner will be selected by random.org.

Our sponsors for this challenge are Ribbon Mad - a big thank you to Emma for sponsoring the challenge this week. These ribbons are just awesome - you won't be disappointed.

Below are the Design Team examples which I hope will inspire you to create your own work of art, it can be a card, LO, ATC - please interpret the challenge in anyway you like - but have fun doing so!

Linda has created this card and has used the lovely papers from the Kaboodle Doodle range. The spots and stripes are from the Dots Kit and the pink paper is from the Old Kit - aren't they just gorgeous papers.

Ann has created this gorgeous card using Kaboodle Doodle papers from the Morris Dance range of papers - isn't that image so sweet!

Angela has created this stunning fan design - just look at that card sparkle.

Chris has created this gorgeous design using some of my favourite autumn colours that suit those stamped designs to perfection.

Now it's over to you to show us your creations.
