Design Team Delights for Challenge #32--GRATEFULNESS

It is time to share our favourite entries for Challenge #32.  As always, in each challenge you, the readers, get to voice your opinion by voting for your favourite and so it is only fitting that my Design Team get to do so as well.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to join along our Path during the month of November for Challenge #32Check out the entries that really caught our attention...
Chriss--chosen by Monica (this is Monica's official last duty with the team)...

 Here is what Monica had to say:
"My DT Delight is Chriss. It was a reminder of the sacrifices not only our military make for us, but their families as well. Such a beautiful endearing card."

Diane--chosen by Katrina and Pat...

Katrina said this:
"My DT Delight is Diane.  Everything about this card is beautiful from the grateful sentiment to the lovely textures! I want to "case" this card! ;)"

This is what Pat had to say:
"My DT Delight is
also Diane H's card. Her use of die-cutting the burlap candles and then using a Snow Pen to create a covering of glistening snow is awesome!"

Jo Ann--chosen by Desíre...

Here is what Desíre had to say:
"My DT Delight is Jo Ann.  I Just adore the vibrant colours and endearing couple on her card."

Donna E.--chosen by Suze and Julie...

Here is what Suze had to say:
"My DT Delight is Donna Ellis. I love how the scallop shapes continue throughout the card in the dies, lace, etc. The image is also beautifully coloured."

Julie had this to say:
"My DT Delight is also Donna Ellis. I love the rich, Autumn colors of her card, her detailed and easy to follow tutorial, and her attitude about gratefulness."

Vickie O.--chosen by Lisa (that's me)...

My DT Delight this time around is Vickie O.  The sentiment on the front of her richly coloured and beautifully designed card states, "A Season to be Thankful".  A seaon to be thankful for indeed!  While Thanksgiving and Christmas are both good times to reflect back and be thankful, it is also important to remember that we need to show our gratitude for the wonderful gifts in our life, throughout all seasons.  We also need to remember to be thankful for the many things that we often don't think about or simply take for granted.  Vickie says it succinctly,
"After going through any type of hardship, we may feel blessed when the difficulty is over, or even just better.  But what if there are no obvious hardships?  I see what is happening around the world and feel gratitude for things like safety, freedom, and living in a land of plenty.  I see someone with a terrible illness and my own ailments seem insignificant. Yet, I'm constantly aware of the fact that there is so much more for which I should be thankful than what I actually verbalize to others and to God." 
As a new year unfolds, don't forget to continuously verbalize your gratitude for ALL the gifts you have been given.

Creative Congratulations to all of you!

Thank you to everyone who played on our Pathway during the month of November.  As always we greatly appreciate you sharing your incredible talents with us.

For our DT Delights chosen for this challenge...

  Chriss, Diane, Jo Ann, Donna and Vickie

  You are all entitled to one image of your choice from our on-going sponsor...

If you are familiar with the Creative Bug Digital SnapShots store, PLEASE NOTE THAT THINGS HAVE CHANGED.   Unfortunately, the website is no longer available.  As such I created a page on the originating blog that lists all of the images available.  Please click HERE to check out the image previews.  I have tried to arrange them into general categories.  Due to the nature of some of these images, they have been repeated in certain applicable categories.  Be sure to click on the watermarks to bring them up into the lightbox for better viewing.  Once you've made your decision, please send me the name of the one image you want and let me know which section it came from.

Additionally, you are entitled to the special Challenge #32 DT Delight Badge. To claim both your digi and the badge (or just one or the other), send your requests to popwinners {at} gmail {dot} com (be sure to replace at and dot with the appropriate symbols) or by clicking HERE to bring the address up in your email program, with the subject, "PoP#32--DT Delight Badge and/or Digi Request".   I'm always running rather behind these days, so your patience is appreciated.

Our special yearly prize package will also still be taking place.  Remember, if you are chosen as a DT Delight during any of our challenges, your name will be entered into a draw for some digital goodies.  You get one entry per choice; so, if two members picked your card, you will earn 2 entries, three members 3 entries, etc.  The winner at the time will be notified by email.   The next draw will occur sometime in the summer of 2016.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope to see you all tomorrow on January 4th, when we will be back with the start of Challenge #34.  We hope that you will join us then to learn what the newest theme will be.

See you again soon!
