Today is new image release day! Tuesday has to be one of the best days of the week! Robin created the cutest little Fishing Bear for you guys this week and I added a snake to the other Jungle/Zoo animals.

I know you will be impressed, I always am, they are truely a talented bunch of ladies!!! ENJOY!

Sylvia of Sylvia's Stamping Place has certainly found her missing mojo! The creations this week are fabby! Sylvia uses Digital Scrapbooking kits for a lot of her papers! WOW! I wish I had a printer that would allow me to print such gorgeous papers! The Fridge Magnet is Super cute! I've never been to Ikea but this makes me want to find one! Wonderful idea! =)

Michelle of Designing With Michelle created these two example cards for you today using her incredible coloring technique. If you haven't seen the tutorial, take a moment. It is well worth it! I love the hat and fish buttons on the Fishing Bear! Your embellishments are always right on the money! The embossed panel on the Snake card really looks like reptile skin! GREAT!

Lorraine of Lorraine’s Loft made her son a Birthday Card for his 21st Birtday using Sid. Love the Basic Grey papers here, they match so well! Super Cute Lorraine!

Howdy All! Hope everyone's week is going great! Hope you all have some time to scrap...we here at Doodle Palace have decided to spice things up a bit by hosting CHALLENGES! They are SO much fun that we just couldn't resist the urge! Still being sort of new to much of this our CHALLENGE concept is still in the developmental stage but we are going to post this one for everyone!

You can play, create beautiful things and win FREE images! Can't beat that! We will use Random.org to choose a winner and contact you via your provided email or blog address. You then choose your 2 favorite Doodle Palace images and we will email them right to you! Easy peasy! =)

The CHALLENGE this week is to use the colors of our BLOG along with FLOURISHS and BLING to create a card and post here using Mr. Linky (below). HOW FUN is this going to be!! Good luck!! We can't wait to see all the wonderfully creative entries!! =)

LOL!! SORRY everyone! We have had several comments with questions that I should have already answered! Told you we were new to this! Robin really shouldn't turn me loose with NO supervision! hahaha! OK, anything goes image-wise, while we would LOVE to see our images on the creations, please use an image that you feel fits the color and theme! ANYTHING, really! =) Next, a deadline would have been good, huh? Thanks Maria! We would like to annouce a winner on Tuesday when releasing new images so lets have everyone's entry no later than Monday, July 20 at midnight CST. That gives us all day Monday (in between work) to get a chance to pick a winner and have that all ready to go first thing Tuesday morning!

Robin and I talked today and decided it would be FUN, FUN to invite others to 'create' the challenges each week. Sort of a Guest Designer in a way. So, the winner of this week's challenge gets to decide on a color, theme or sketch for next week! And so on and so forth....Again, thanks ladies for helping me out! =)
