Before I get to the details of the challenge and last weeks winner, I just want to shout about these fabulous new Christmas images that have just been released over at THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS. Santa and friends cuddling a mug of hot chocolate...luverly, and the snowmen are so cute, I think they're adorable, so why not pop over and treat yourselves.

We had a terrific turnout for last weeks Autumn Colours challenge. Thank you all for your wonderful entries, but our winner this week is #24 Claire C with this gorgeous scene card.

Congratulations Claire, it's beautiful. Please take your winners badge from the sidebar. Pop over to DIGITAL DOWNLOADS and choose £10 of downloads and then click on Contact Us at the top here and email me (Lorraine) and I'll arrange for your choices to be emailed to you.

Our top 3 are:
#19 Tracy MacDonald for her stunning circular card.
#33 Donna S with her fabulous paper bag.
#60 Grace N for her just beautiful 'quick card' as she called it.
Congratulations ladies. They were all terrific. Please take your Top 3 badge from the sidebar and wear it proudly on your blogs.

Our challenge this week is all about diamonds. Yes, those lovely sparkly things that we'd all like to own a few of. This week we want you to use sparkly gems on your cards and we want to see lots of bling.
Our sponsor this week is the wonderful JOANNA SHEEN with a £10 spend for the winner.

Here's what the design team did this week using the image Belinda in Reflection from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS.

The challenge will close as always, next Saturday at 8.00pm UK time.

All the links for the Design Teams blogs are in the sidebar (or you can click on their names above the card pics) so please go and have a look to find out exactly how they have created their projects and leave them some love. :o)

Email entries are welcome. Email using the Contact Button and they'll be popped into the post for you and can I ask you again to PLEASE, please turn off your word verification if you don't mind. It's very time consuming making comments and it really does make like easier for us without it. Thanks.

Remember, lots of bling and as always, we look forward to seeing all your lovely work.
