Wow...what a lot of lovely entries we had for our 'T is for Tree' challenge! It was great to see some new faces...and of course lots of our wonderful regulars too...I guess we're all really beginning to knuckle down and get those Christmas cards done! lol
Anyway, I'm just glad that it wasn't me that had to choose the 'Top 3' from all of your gorgeous cards...congratulations to the Top 3 and winner!


Ok, now on to this week's challenge...after all of the brilliant trees from our last challenge, the theme this time is:

'U is for Under the Tree'
(In other words make a gift or gift bag/box)

We are sponsored for this challenge by one of our regular sponsors:


And the prize is a $15 Gift Certificate...they'll pay the shipping too!

We are looking to expand our happy little DT with some more permanent members, and are also holding a DT call on this challenge.

As a DT  member, you would be required to make a card/project for each challenge (once a fortnight), and comment on entries to the challenges - we have a rota, so the commenting is shared between us all :0)
We also take it in turns to post the challenges on this blog, and choose the 'Top 3' for the challenges we 'host'.
We are a very friendly and democratic team, and appreciate everyone's input into challenge themes, and have DT blog, where we chat and share our ideas.

So, if you love crafting for Christmas as much as we do, and can commit to at least 6 months of ABC Christmas Challenge fun, make an item for this challenge, and add 'DT' after your name on the Inlinkz gadget.

Here are the inspirational gifts/giftbags/boxes from the design team:
