Scatty Jan For todays project I have made a door hanger using - The Christmas Joy Download bundle Which I absolutly love  - there is so much on there it gives me lots of inspiration - This will hang proudly on my Granddaughters door handle  :-)
Zoe - This week's DT challenge made me think of shopping. The happiness of hearing Christmas songs in the shops and, if you're a bit daft like me, the enjoyment of trying on Christmas jumpers & accessories!! So I used the fun Emman Canning Deer Girl image and some papers from the Angelberry Collection. I took them into Serif Craft Artist Pro to create this double sided folded project. It's a list or reminder for when I go Christmas shopping to write down what I still need to buy! Once printed out, I coloured the digital image with a mix of markers including Graph It's.

Anjie - For my card this week I have used the Christmas Joy Download Bundle which is available as an instant download so you can get crafting straight away! This kit contains 13 coloured embellishments, 10 sentiments, 2 borders and 13 A4 backing papers. So is amazing value at just £3.99! 
Debbi - For this weeks challenge I have made a bottle gift tag using the Christmas Joy bundle, which also incorporates a little pocket to add a little extra gift...well it is Christmas :)
Sarah - I thought I'd try White on White this week, it's a lovely image and thought it didn't really need any papers distracting from it! The image is Angelberry Hugs, coloured with my ProMarkers and I then used various dies, embossing folders, glitter on her wings and some ribbon to finish the card.
Susan - This week it feels a lot like Christmas on Digi Choosday. The theme is Christmas Cheer and what could be better than a glass of pink champers (well one can dream) I have used Fredericka Debutante this week and coloured her with Graph'it markers and the papers are from Christmas Joy bundle. For the full list of what I used please pop over to my blog, Hugs and Happy Crafting xxx
Jo- For my project this week I used the Deer Girl digi from Emma Canning, coloured with my ProMarkers, and two of the more traditional papers from the Christmas Joy bundle. The sentiment comes with the Christmas Joy kit too! I had to add the jingle bell as it is pure Christmas cheer xx
Kevin For my project this week I have used this gorgeous Topper and papers from the Christmas Joy Download Bundle
Sally - Hi there.  Christmas Cheer is our challenge this week. So I thought I would use one of the Greetings from Here Comes Christmas CD Rom, backing paper from Home for Christmas CD Rom and part of Emma Canning's digi images Time for Tea.  I Printed off the sentiment and coloured the holly in, pan pastelled around the edge. Cut out the head and hands, coloured him in using Promarkers, attached him to the sentiment, matt and layered it on to a Spellbinder die cut and then adhered it to the backing paper.  There we have it.
So there's the inspiration for today! 
I'm sure you'll agree that they're all superb makes again this week, love love love all the work these guys have put in!
