Now let’s see what the team have made for us for this weeks challenge!

Crafting Vicky - For this card I used the fabulous set Christmas Joy bundle that I arranged in a word document to be in purples and blues as I wanted for this challenge!  I totally adore digis as they are so versatile!!!!

Scatty Jan What a beautiful colour combination for Christmas. I decided to make a Christmas snowflake lantern. The purple paper is from Work and Play Festive Hollybobs collection aong with Hollybobs Mistletoe digistamp (also available on the cd) and also available as a clear stamp - Coloured with Graph'It Markers - I added some white liquid pearls - some vellum behind the snowflakes, and a tiny battery flicking candle xx

Julie  - Its nice to take a break from the traditional red and green colour scheme for xmas  so a great challenge to use these two colours -I have used the following Polkadoodles items for my cracker card -Both Papers from Angelberry Christmas CD,Image from  Angelberry Christmas CD,Paper bows from Work and Play Festive Hollibobs Collection Download which has now been added to the digi store for immediate download, they are also available on the Work and Play Festive Hollibobs CD

Yvonne - For this weeks challenge I used the fantabulous 'Work & Play; Festive Hollybobs Collection' which you can get as a CDRom or download the digi collection.  This weeks theme is Christmas in blues & purples - and there are sooooo many papers in this collection, you can do this challenge no problems at all. I used 'Skating Fun' and she is in the collection or you can get her as a polymer stamp, click here to shop! She is coloured in with my Graph'It Markers, which never fail me.  I cut her out with 'Westminster' Tattered Lace die and edged round it with 'Ultramarine Tint' Pan Pastel. I cut some Tattered Lace snowflakes and also one of the new Tattered Lace greetings as it reminded me of the marks left by skating on the ice. Markers used are listed on my blog. 

Wendy - I've stepped slightly out of the box this week (no pun intended), I've made 4 christmas tree baubles and a presentation box. All the papers for the baubles and the box lid are from Festive Holibobs and have resized and recoloured in CAP2. The image is also from Festive Holibobs, printed out 5 times and decoupaged, she is also available as a stamp here.

SharonChristmas in blues and purples this is from the Xmas joy bundle I have recoloured the papers, sentiment and elements using a graphics program. Fussy cut the trees and mounted them with foam tape. I have then added glitter to the trees and background to give them a frosty look.

Patty - For this weeks challenge I used papers and image from the Magical Winter I collection.  This weeks theme is Christmas in blues & purples  there so many papers to choose from this collection...for the image I choose the tall snowman I have found him so cute and I colored him using my copics... I add some rick rack border to the front and the sentiment i used memento black ink and accent it using some purple doddle dewdrops.

Anjie - I decided to make some table place cards, but instead of the usual I decided to do it as a cracker and put a personal treat inside each one that I know they will love! I have printed papers and embellies from the Angelberry Christmas CD onto card stock and used a die to cut the crackers out. I took the baubles into MS Word and added the names onto them. I finished them off by tying them closed with coordinating bakers twine.
