 Let's take a look at what the team have to share this week...

Yvonne - Now to be honest, I wasn't a hundred percent sure what Nordic Christmas was but, using Work & Play; Festive Hollibobs which is available as a Digi Download Collection or as a CD-Rom.  I opted to make a little treat bag using one of the fab papers from the collection.  printed and cut out the Reindeer & North Pole embellishments to decorate the treat bag with. A little bit of ribbon coloured to match the box using my Graph'It Markers to complete the bag.


Anjie - I got these MDF letters at a craft show back in the summer and dug them out for this challenge. I love nothing better than to make my own Christmas decorations, I think it shows your own style off to people. I started by giving them a coat of White Gesso. The papers I have used are from Magical Winter and all the embellies are from Work & Play Festive Hollybobs. I have done faux stitching with the white Shake It pen from Graph'It Markers and I have added some White Gesso and Light Modelling Paste to look like snow. The die cut poinsettias are from Tattered Lace.
More photos can be found on my blog.


Jenny - I've used the backing paper from Work and Play Festive Hollybobs to make my card as I thought it was perfect for our challenge.  Full details are on my blog.

Anita- oooooo I had a play with work and play 5 festive hollybobs collection Isn't this skater girl a cutie pie .. she available on a CD-Rom I coloured with alcohol markers and added a bit of sparkle so for more info why not pop by.



Bev here with my take on the 'Nordic' challenge ....


Isn't he cute? He's a digi from the Magical Winter 1 collection and I adore him I coloured him in as usual with my good old Graph'its. The backing paper, sentiment and snowflakes (glittered) are all from the brilliant Work & Play Hollybobs CD.

Susan - With the Nordic Challenge I have used papers and a little pre coloured Santa from Work & Play Hollybobs CD the rest are die cuts....

Wow - Amazing inspiration from the Design team this week!!
