Bye Bye Summer

Hello there!  So excited to be back and showing you some of my creations.  We just bought a new house and spent most of our summer moving so it was nice to have a little crafting break, but now I am refreshed and ready to try out my new craft room!  Just wanted to share one last summer card before we dive into fall.  This little guy is Scuba Ollie and you can find him in the Whimsie Doodles shop here.  I just love how cute he is in his little snorkel gear. 
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to our September Guest Artist!

Hello Whimsie Doodles fans!!

The Doodlelicious Divas are getting ready to return next month after a nice summer break, and we are welcoming a lovely Guest Artist to the team for the month of September!

Please give a warm Whimsie Doodles welcome to the talented Sarah Preston!


Hello, my name is Sarah.  I live in Michigan with my husband and our only son.  I have been stamping for over 20 years, but I am still learning.  There are always new techniques and tools to play with.  I started using digital images about 4-5 years ago.  Whimsie Doodles was the first company, I bought from.  I loved the sweet images then and I still do.  My other hobbies (if there are really other things to do...lol) are reading, computer gaming and basic project life scrapbooking.

And here is the adorable card Sarah created for us using Apple Lizzie... one of my favorite images, and just perfect for this time of year with everyone heading back to school!


I love the monochromatic blue with the pop of bright red on the apple! 
Beautiful work, Sarah!
Be sure to head on over to Sarah's Blog to welcome her aboard!


Stay tuned everyone... the Divas will be popping in with new creations very soon!!

Thanks so much for visiting!

Teacher Thank You!

Hey everyone!  kel here with a quick teacher card to share today.  I know some of you may be thinking I'm a little late with the thank yous, but my kiddos finish summer school in less than 2 weeks so I thought I'd get a head start on their teacher thank you's!  We typically finish our school year at the end of May/first week of June and then start back up at the end of July/beginning of August... I know it's quite a different schedule than some of you are used to!!


I wanted to keep this card simple, since I have to make a few of them!  This is Apple Lizzy (on the School digis page) and she was just too cute... my kids don't wear uniforms but I just think that hers is adorable!!!  I especially love her skirt and her loafers... probably because I never had to wear it either lol!!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're having a wonderful week!

lovies, =o) kel

Out of this World

Hi Whimsie Doodles Fans,

It's Andrea here. I hope everyone had a great weekend and managed to get some crafting done.

As promised last month I am sharing another card I made using the awesome Space Cadets Collection.  

I could not resist this super cute alien, so he took centre stage on my card.  I adore his big eyes and just had to add a big blob of glossy accents to them to make them shine.


 Believe it or not I actually made this card for my husbands birthday....he loved it, he is such a big kid!

If you would like more information on the supplies I used please pop over to my blog.

That's it from me for a couple of months. The Diva's are taking a well earned break, but don't worry we will be back in September with more Doodlelicious inspiration.

Until then..... happy crafting.
Hugs Ax
