Design Team Delights for Challenge #33--BELIEVE

First up I want to apologize for the fact this post is coming out later than I'd normally publish it.  Sadly, I have been trying to get to it since 3:30 this afternoon (it is now 5:47).  Every time I'd think, "oh, I've got to go and get that done", something else would distract me and I'd get waylaid.  Now with just 10 minutes left before it is supposed to be posted, I'm in a bit of a time crunch.  Man, I'm apparently the queen of procrastination today, on a day where I can't afford it--I've still got three posts due tomorrow to get done.  What do they say about the 'best of intentions'?  Oh well, I am here now so let's get on with it! :) 

It is time to share our favourite entries for Challenge #33.  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 December for Challenge #33Check out the entries that really caught our attention...
AJ--chosen by Pat...

This is what Pat had to say:
"My DT Delight is AJ.  I love that side easel card and her design and coloring are fabulous."

NanaConnie--chosen by Katrina, Desíre and Julie...

Katrina said this:
"My DT Delight is NanaConnie. Those mice are delightful skating around and the sentiment "Believe the Christmas Magic" is so perfect with the sparkle!"

Desíre had the exact thing to say as Katrina did, only adding this statement:
"...And of course the traditional red and green Christmas colours is very striking."

Julie had this to say:
"My DT Delight is NanaConnie as well. Her card is delightful. She wanted to make it look like a package, and she definitely accomplished that. Plus, her image is adorable!"

Helen--chosen by Suze...

Here is what Suze had to say:
"My DT Delight is  Helen. I love that the traditional image is centre of the card and then framed to highlight the image. A beautiful CAS card."

Steffi--chosen by Sandy...

Sandy said this:
"My DT Delight is Steffi.  Her card has a spirit feel to it and brings a smile to one's face."

 This time around I personally didn't have a favourite--it was too hard choosing among the four entries so they are ALL my favourites!  Each one has something unique about it that I love.

NanaConnie's card is just so cute and I love her sentiment.   Christmas is definitely a magical time of year where one can easily believe in so much beyond the ordinary.

AJ's card is lovely too.   Her inside sentiment reads, "It was the simple gift of love that changed the course of the world." These beautiful words that expound on what Christmas is really about, touched me.

Helen's card may be clean and simple but it is still impressive.  I love the focus on the image and of course her great sentiment.  Can you imagine a world with peace?  Even for just one day?  What a glorious world that would be.

Finally that brings Steffi's card.  I love the fun and festive design and of course the red, white and touch of gold--perfect for the Christmas season.

Creative Congratulations to all of you!

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

For our DT Delights chosen for this challenge...

  AJ, NanaConnie, Helen, and Steffi

  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 #33 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#33--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 February 1st, when we will be back with the start of Challenge #35.  We hope that you will join us then to learn what the newest theme will be.

And look at that--thankfully I'm not too late getting the post out, just 45 minutes ish.  It could have always been much later so that is a positive blessing in itself!  See you again soon!
