Design Team Favourites for December
These favourites are listed in the numerical order.

Jackie Trinder chose #5 Kym

This is a great Christmas card. That happy Santa caught my eye straight away. I would be so happy to receive a card like this.

 Ileana Artuffo chose #46 Dina G

I love image and choice of colours, design is wonderful and embellishment are gorgeous.

 Andrée Crowe #101 Judy V

A super seasonal trio of gorgeous Christmas ornaments, each one cleverly crafted with wonderful festive details. It's a fabulously creative entry.

 Carole Jones chose #112 Creative Pixie Designs

I love how Donna took the image and changed it into a faux stained glass window panel. Such a simple technique, but one that I imagine takes much practice. The result is stunning. A most beautiful winter card!

 Danuta Brzezińska chose #121 MeSi

I like the colors and the retro photo itself. The black bottle card contrasts beautifully with the image. The whole thing is very elegant.

I like the brightness of the polar bear against the background of a dark night with stars.

  Dagmara Gorczyńska chose #150  Susan Sudbury

I love the colors and the corgi digi. I'm impressed how she colored his fur!


Wishing you all the best for 2021

The new challenge starts tomorrow. 

We would be thrilled for you to join us. 

Best wishes from us all on the Design Team.

Goodbye and DT Call

You must have a platform where you can share your projects and you must also be prepared to print out and colour digital stamps in order to make one project each month. You would also be required to comment on participants entries.
