Helen chose #3 Ellie
I love the way this has been put together and the scene created just looks like it should be framed x

Lorraine choose #8 Jenimc
I liked the 3D design.  Decorated beautifully both inside and out, the pop-out nativity scene, which was lit with tiny lights, created a beautiful card and display piece too.

Danuta chose #27 Chrissy 
Beautiful vintage card. I love the blue leaves.

Andree chose #46 Kathie
A gorgeous card for Christmas. A lovely layout design with pretty papers. The beautiful bauble image is wonderfully coloured and finished with fabulous touches of sparkle.

Carole chose #60 Larissa
These fabulous, working, ferris wheel advent calendars are a paper engineering miracle! They are beautifully crafted and decorated with skillfully coloured, cute digi stamps. They make a great keepsake and can be refilled in years to come. Wonderful project!

Sari choose #73 Cat 
I love the round shape, all the pretty layers and wonderfully colored happy images.

Ileana choose #74 Maz 
I love sweet image and original design. Wonderful colouring.

Dagmara chose ##108 Roberta
I love the digi and color choices. Also the coloring is brilliant!

Don't forget that the new challenge starts tomorrow.
