Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts. It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps. Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair. Having these two complimenting styles have enabled Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.
It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations. We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.
Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.
Judy and Joy

Here is what the team came up with

For this colourful card I've used a Forever Friends topper & papers from The Good Life pad
 A fun birthday card for any little boy!  I used stamps from Stampin' Up! to create my circus scene.
  My card this time was made utilising my pc to print the grass background and a picture of the rugby player cut from a magazine, mounted onto a card base.  End result - an easel card for a rugby mad 10 year old.
My card was made with a Mo Manning image and DCWV Generation Tech papers, I used "1 Up" instead of a birthday greeting which also doubled as an embellishment of sorts.
 I've been rewatching Barbara Grey's 'Classroom' to make this card for my husband's birthday next month. The Stamp is Clarity's Split Tree and leaves, and the ink is Distress and Memento (black).
 My male themed card is for my brother's birthday.  I used stamps that I have had ages and never inked before.  They are from Aspects of Design and I added some lovely paper from Basic Gray and some flourishes to imitate waves.
My male themed card is for my OH's Birthday. I used a Clock die cut as well as a variety of stamps, together with lots of distress inks.
  For my card I have used a stamp from Debbi Moore coloured with my ProMarkers. The little pair of football boots are 3D stickers from K and Co. Papers and nail heads are from my stash.
I've used the Boy and Dog image from our sponsor, Digital Doodle Shop, keeping the embellies to a minimum for a boy card.  Colouring is Copics and Distress Ink
I have used the Light House image from our sponsor Digi Doodle Shop, and coloured it in with watercolours. I also chose the colour scheme of red, white and blue.
My card was made for one of 'The Boys' at work who is off to Canada to join his wife in a new life.
This is a wee card I made for my Big Brothers Birthday
I kept it simple with just some yummy papers, hand-cut letters , twine, gems and pearls and finished with a wee sentiment!
I made a Baby Boy Set....A Card, Box & a Tiny Mini Album.
Embellished with paper flowers , buttons,safety pin die cut & mini rhinestones.
