A stunning Christmas card. Anet created beautiful velum panel backgrounds for the wonderful silver die cuts. There is also a tutorial on how to create the alcohol ink paper and the fabulous balcony card design.

 Susan Moffatt chose #89 Lisa J
Fabulous tag. I love that the reindeer can't see anything from beneath the hat, not sure he's going to be one of Santa's team if he doesn't sort that out!

 Kelly Parker chose #93 Elle-jeanne 
I really like this card because it is a man cars, we don't see many cards for men and this one is fabulous! The design and layout of the card is fabulous.

Cass Stromboli chose #141 Amelia B
Gorgeous Christmas card. Love the traditional red car/truck with the Christmas tree on top and the other trees around it.

Iliana chose #150 Judy V
Wonderful ornaments, with a lot of beautiful details and two shaker ornaments are gorgeous.

Dagmara Gorczyńska chose #183 CarolG
I really like the minimalism of this card and the reference to Japan.

Tracey Mowbray chose #187 Aussie Annie
Winter Lodge - what a stunning silhouette stamp image and background.

Carole Jones chose #191 Ans Gilbert
I love this pink and black birthday card with the gorgeous image and the pretty die cut embellishments. It's a very feminine, elegant card with lots of layers.

These favourites are listed in the numerical order.
Please Take Your DT Favourite Badge from the Side Bar 

 Susan Moffatt chose #18 Chris

Perfect spooky house

 Kelly Parker chose #20 Ellie

I love these little cats all caught up in the Christmas lights! And, of course, the sentiment. Ellie did a wonderful job of colouring and the paper compliments the stamped image so well.

Danuta Brzezińska chose #40 Heather Mills

I like the juxtaposition of so many different papers in the autumn mood. Beautiful friends are perfect for them.


Ileana chose #59 Roberta

I love the image and wonderful background. Beautiful colouring.

Dagmara Gorczyńska chose #105 Silke

Halloween cards are my favourite and Silke picked a great digi and coloure digi and coloured it absolutely wonderfully.


Cass Stromboli chose #120 Boo

Love the shaped card, the autumn shades and the way the images are placed - the witch in the background and the girl in the forefront. Lovely effect.

Andrée Crowe chose #151 Myriam

A wonderful Get Well card incorporating a handy tissue box. A brilliant card and gift idea in fabulously cheerful, bright colours with a cheeky frog that's bound to make anyone feel better.

Carole Jones chose #178 ScrappyHorses

Katrina has beautifully coloured the floral images for this sympathy card. She chose bold autumnal colours and big flowers that work so well with the lovely font of the sentiment.

Tracey Mowbray chose #191 Katrina Bufton

A lovely, bight card. Great colour combo. Very pretty.
