The team are taking a little break, so this is our last challenge of the year, but we'll be back with a new one again on 2nd January to welcome you all back after the holidays...
So lets see what our Design Team have made this week....
Yvonne - Hello! This is the final week of Digi Choosday for this year and I guess it is fitting that the Design Team where asked to think of the theme 'Thanks'. So thank you to everyone who comes past each week and takes part in our challenge. For my card this week I used the wonderful 'Winnie Fruit Punch' which you can browse following this link here. I opted to use 'Make a List' - which you can get the single B&W digi stamp here.  I made a 7x7 card using papers from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles - which is available as Paper Heaven 1.  The word art 'Thanks' and the flowers are also from Sugar Sprinkles and are here and here respectively.  Winnie is coloured with Copic Markers, full details on my blog.
Anjie - I have used the Winne White Christmas collection to make this, actually the alphabet from the collection. I printed all the letters out onto glossy paper and fussy cut them all out. I used some simple matting and layering on this to keep it simple and be all about the thank you. I've also used the Polkadoodles Flower Flourish die, and the Polkadoodles Flower 2 die. I've actually made two of these, one for my cuzzie for having us for Christmas, and one for our friends for having us over for New Year.
Julie Reed - For my Thank You make I have folded a 12 x 12 double sided paper to make a frame and used a pre-coloured image and sentiment from the so sweet Winnie Sugar Sprinkles.
Katrina ~ My thank you is for my Father in Law.  The focal point and musical symbols are all from Work & Play 8 Feel the Music.   The background stripes are from Winnie White Christmas.  The sentiment is from Winnie Fruit Punch
Julia I have based my Thank you card on the gorgeous January - See the Signs I have coloured her up using my Copic Markers. I stamped up the Sentiment using Elegant Alphabet I then teamed it up with some papers from the Stampin Unicorn, I used Wonerland Fourni and I added some flowers from the gorgeous Pretty Paper Flowers I also added a few extra details with the Birdhouse Doublet Dies and Elegant Lamplight & Gate and finally I stamped round the edges using Doodle Stitched Borders...
Željka-Hello!!! For this week I used adorable Cutiepie from Lil Miss Sugarpops 1 Download Kit
and made CAS card.
Hester - Thanks everyone. For this week I made this Thanks card from several sheet and paper from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles kit.
Jane S - So this is my 'thank you' card for all our loyal followers that have supported the challenge and the team throughout 2017; we really do appreciate it. I have used the stunning January - Nature Lover and some wonderful Polkadoodles dies...Toadstool BorderElegant Nests and Elegant Lamplight & Gate. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and a happy & healthy 2018! xxx
Jane P- This week I used the Lil Sugarpops #2 collection for my "Thank You" card.  Thank you to all my wonderful Team Mates and for you Nikky.

So lets see what our Design Team have made this week....

Anjie - I used the Frosted Winter collection. I think the colours on this are just perfect for this time of year, and they are my fave colours too! I lined all the letters up using My Craft Studio so I could get them all the same size and on the same line so they were level. I then printed them out and cut using my scissors. I layered up a few flowers and added some stamens and some foliage to add some extra interest. I finished it off by adding some gems in the top corner and around the numbers.
Yvonne - Hello! This week I went with my most favourite collection ever and that  is Serenity.  You can browse the digi downloads here or get the CD here. The CD collection has the precoloured images on them and I just looked and there is a MASSIVE saving here.  For my 'New Year' card I used Serenity Princess which you can find here.  The papers are also from the collection - full details on my blog.
Julie Reed - I think I have used an image from 9 different collections to create my 2018 Tag Calendar.  You can find all the collections in store HERE. 

Hester - This week I made thhis Happy New Year card. Glasses are in the Winnie Fruit Punch kit
and paper is from the Winnie White Christmas kit.
Jane S - I have made a Happy New Year card using the fabulous Oddella with Bag and numbers and one of the fabulous chalkboard sentiments from Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter. The paper is from Horace & Boo.
Katrina ~ My New Year card is for my son!  I used paper from Octavia Moonfly Paper Heaven 4 and the gears are from Winnie in Wonderland Steampunk Cogs and Wheels and Winnie/Wonderland Steampunk Cogs/Wheels.

Jane P - I used a new revamped collection on my card this week called Eastern Dreams.  I added Pocketfuls of Love-January image.
Julia I have friends moving home next week, So I have made a New Home card using Winnie Fruit Punch ... and the Fabulous Elegant Alphabet stamp set .. which I am in love with!! Full details on my blog.
Željka-Hello!!!For this week challenge I used adorable Unicorn baby image from  Lil Miss Sugarpops 1 Download Kit   to make a card for my daughter friend and her new baby.

So lets see what our Design Team have made this week....
Jane S - I have used the fabulous January - See the Signs to make a chilly birthday card digitally adding both the sentiment and snowflakes. The gorgeous die cut framing the image is the Bubbleicious Frame Set.
Željka-Hello!!! For this week I created an Christmas B-day card created in MW using lots of elements from Winnie White Christmas BIG KAHUNA DOWNLOAD KIT...I used Tags & Frames ,Winnie White Christmas Alphabet  and Embellishments
Yvonne - This week I am playing with Winnie White Christmas. I used the precoloured image Watch Your Step, which is available on the main collection but if you want the b&w digi, it can be found here.  The papers are from the main collection.  I made a 7x7 card but the frames are from Polkadoodles and can be found here.
Jane P -  This weeks Christmas birthday was created using the Picknix 2 Gingerbread Twist Collection.  I merged images, paper and tag in Craft Serif.
Hester - My mother her Birthday is on 25th December and I made this Birthday box for her. I used Robin Gift branch and the paper is from Work & Play 5 collection ....

Julie Reed - For my winter birthday card, I have tried to stick to traditional Red & Green, but I think I lost my way with the purple present!  Image is from Winnie Fruit Punch and coloured with Copics.
Julia Hi, for my make I have combined Winnie White Christmas and Winnie in Winterland ... I have used Seriff  & layered various background papers and played with transparency settings to create my background, I then framed Winnie with some Winter roses, added lots of glitter and paint splashes to give a wintery feel.
Katrina ~ I have combined several collections for my card, but the adorable images are all from Winnie White Christmas.  My youngest grand-girl has a winter birthday; she is definitely the "Princess of Sparkle" around here! 
Anjie -  I have used the stunning Frosted Winter collection to make this circular easel card. I printed everything on matt paper as it suits these images so well, and makes them more vibrant. I fussy cut them all out and mounted in place with 3D foam. I printed the image 3 times and decoupaged it up. More info and details on my blog.
Great work from the team as always!
