Polkadoodles #49: Secret Santa

Hello, Polka Doodlers! It's happy Friday again but this fortnight we're taking our challenges to the next level. Blame it on too much egg nog, mulled wine AND sangria because the DT on Polka Doodles Challenges have all gone bonkers and become "Secret Santa" to each other.

We each received a cryptic message from Santa and the Jolly Man wanted me to make a project for .... whoops, can't tell you but see if you can guess from these clues:

Clue #1: She lives across the pond and is into crafting, cooking and cats.

Clue #2: She trains her kitties to be therapy animals at catteries ... how cool is that?!

Clue #3: She's new to Poolkadoodles, so new that you'll only be seeing her PD projects next year.

If you think you know the identity of my "Secret Santa", leave her name in the comments section of my post. One lucky winner will receive a digi image over and above the normal challenge prize. A random DT blog will be chosen and a commentator from that blog will then be picked as the winner of a fab Polka Doodles digi image. 

Don't forget to visit all the DT and see if you can guess who has made for whom to be in with a chance to win.  All the details you need are on the main Polka Doodles challenge blog. You have up to Thursday 18th December (midnight GMT) to enter and the winners will be announced on Friday 19th December (GMT).

Now let me show you what I made for my Secret Santa:

The background paper is from Angelberry Christmas, the cosy houses and trees are from A Home For Christmas and the greeting is from Festive Hollybobs. To accentuate the snow I used Texture Paste by Ranger and glitter. 

Here are a couple of close-ups.  For extra sparkle and shimmer I used Liquid Pearls, Stardust Stickles and Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy.

Don't forget to leave a comment with the name of the DT member. A full list of all members can be found on the Polka Doodles Challenge blog. If in doubt.... GUESS and you risk winning an extra digi image. You have up to Thursday 18th December (midnight GMT) to enter and the winners will be announced on Friday 19th December (GMT).

Thank you for stopping by today. I'm sure you are looking forward to the weekend... so am I!
