Scatty Jan - Showing you today a card I have made for my lovely Mother In Laws Birthday . I have used lots of different collections but look how good they all work together. Using Kraft card I cut the dresser on my portrait. I then covered it using the Distress wood papers dabbing a little distress ink here and there. I Framed a photo of my MIL using the frame from Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun. The bag and little hat were borrowed from the Winston collection. And the flowers and butterfly from Rose Budd collection. Added some lace , pearls and buttons to finish , oh and some little drawer handles , More photos on my blog xx


Mia - This card I made using the fabulous Florabunda Colouring Book Pages. I just love these pages and had to but both this one and the Inspiring Foliage download. They are amazing to colour please check out the rest of the details on this card over at my blog xx


Ria - Ohh my last Polkadoodles card for 2015 ;) makes me wonder what 2016 will bring us hahaha so I decided to use my favourite Twiggy stamp Twiggy hats off combined with the fence and the birdhouse from the Twiggy and Toots collection. I coloured it with watercolouring pencils and Peerless watercolours. White dots with molotow marker. I didn't use any designer papers just an 8x8 Embossing folder and Die from Tattered Lace. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year...


Karon - For my creation this week I have made a Gift box Easel card.  All the papers, embellishments are from the wonderful Studio 12 Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter collection.  Even the Merry Christmas is from this collection as a cut file for your cutting machines.  You will have to stop by my blog to find out what the box contains LOL!


Jenny - I love these anything goes challenges and it's ever so easy with all the luverly stuff Nikky brings us. This time I've used Serenity Earthstar, because I've been busy making Christmas cards I have used a pre-coloured image but she is a dream to colour in yourself too.  you can buy her on her own or for pure indulgence buy the full collection. more details on my blog on how I made this.


Melanie - I am using this adorable Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Collection this week. I had such a fun time coloring her using my Copic markers. Visit my blog to see all the details. 


Aunty Sue - Wow well the mad rush is on for the big day and if you are like me still trying to get some last minute cards done. Also gosh the price of posting. Well to solve both what better way than to use Work & Play Festive Hollybobs. I have used all pre coloured embellishments and 3 papers and layered them all up in Word. This solves the extra weight and thickness as you print as 1 sheet. I just added a couple of think gems some fluffy stuff, glitter and twine and hey presto. 1 quick and cost effective card which I can print time and time again. You can get Festive Hollybobs as a download here if you fancy doing some quick projects. On top of this these are just the embellishments wait till you see the Characters.


JackieThis week I have played with the Serenity Collection for the Anything Goes challenge. My card features paper, sentiments and a digi from this range. The digi image is called Serenity Joyful. Details for this card are on my blog. I love that the image is available in colour if you are after a quick make, too!


Jessie - I love the holidays and making traditional Cards. I also adore how Nikky adds little gems of images in with her collections (you really do get so much stuff when you buy the full collections) I used the Work and Play 5 Hollybobs collection for this card, and it is an example of one of those great images you can find Rudy in this collection as well as all the patterned paper I used.


So, now it is over to you. ....The theme, everyones favourite
