I've been busy making some cards and trying a LOT of new techniques.  I started doodling a couple of years or so ago, but never really did much with what I'd done until recently.  I've turned some of my doodles into cards and it's been a LOT of fun.  I've also made some cards with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel-Off Stickers, and incorporated my doodles into them, and I like the results of that.  If you scroll down you'll see my many new creations.
Here are a couple of cards that I made with the free background.  On this particular card I did the Woven Ribbon Technique.  For the leaves on the flowers I hand cut a leaf shape and then folded it in half lengthwise and then put it through a crimper and that's what gave them their shape.

Here's the web site where I learned how to do the ribbon weaving:


Just thought I'd try something a little funky and I like the way it turned out on my card.  Quite simple, but cute.  Hope you all enjoy it.
Here's another little doodle I did.  It's been fun just goofing off with doodling and making cards out of them.
I added Wink of Stella to the sun and the sun rays and added some little googly eyes.
And another doodle I did.  I added a flower to this one with a red brad in the center.  Also added a little red in the image to tie in the red brad in the center of the flower.
Again, another doodle I did.  Only this time I added red Stickles to the flower and on the image itself also.
This was one of my very first doodles I did.  The area with the green leaves is just DP.  The middle section is my doodle.

I really like the way this card turned out!  The background of this (the rainbow and clouds) is some paper I purchased in an office store years ago.  The birds and the flowers were done with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel-Off Stickers.  It is quite a process and if you go to her site, she teaches you how to do it...pretty easy and really fun!  The doodles were done by me.  :)
Here's a link to one of her videos:
You can use pretty much any micro fine glitter.  Ultra fine glitter works well also.  I used ultra fine glitter on mine.
