Beautiful projects ladies! Please help yourselves to a Top 3 badge for your blogs.

Now let's see what inspiration the DT have for us this week .......

Alysha - Hi there its that time again and this week I have created a canvas using a free digi image, Pink, Magenta and brown Pan Pastels for the background and then added a few flowers coloured with pan pastels and finished off with a sentiment to complete.
  Hope you will come and join us.
Hugs Aly xx

Claire C  I've made a tag using my PanPastels, you can find the colours used below the pic. I blended shades of Turquoise and Bright Yellow Green for the background and then overstamped with script and snowflakes from the Festive Christmas Stamp Soup collection (you can find them here). Next I added some polkadots by applying Maimeri Glassy Gel medium through a stencil and sprinkling over glass glitter. I added a strip of burlap, some tinsel and lots of Sizzix die cuts that I'd coloured with my PanPastels. I added some 'snow' to the pine cone with white glue and more glitter.

Hiya all, it's Terry  and I had fun making my first Christmas card for this weeks challenge....I started with placing a piece of designer paper on my cardstock. I played with a stencil from Dutch Dobadoo and used Light Modelling Paste to create the background of snowflakes....on top I embossed the snowflakes and worked on them with some crackle too.

After my background was finished I thought why  not use a sentiment with different kind of languages saying Merry Christmas and putting it on top of the snowflakes. I placed a piece of rope in front of the card and a few stars colored with panpastels were placed on top of that, to finish my first Christmas Card for 2016.......

A few products that I worked with are:
