So, onto the challenge and this week the theme is 'Summer Scene'. Summer is approaching so we would like to see your Summer Scene's. Have fun and here is what the design team have made.....

Emma - Hello there, this week I have chosen elements and a beautiful little scene from the Sugar Plum Daisy CDROM to make my card. Pre-coloured for speed - how delightful!
And, because I love this image sooooo very much, I made two cards this week.

Nelly - i made this little wall plaque using elements from the Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD i took the images and decoupaged the Bird houses and glazed them with clear glaze, the sentiment is from Sugar Plum Daisy CD i do wish the sun would come out to start our summer fun!

JAN: I imagined a lovely meadow when I thought of a summer scene, so I used this gorgeous little piece of fencing from the 'Sugarplum Daisy' CD and repeated it three times to make the scene for my card - it is all hand coloured using Promarkers. I added some fab flowers from the 'Sugar Birdies' CD and decoupaged them behind the fence, as if they are growing in the meadow. The 'Summer' bunting is from the 'All Around & Everywhere' CD and is printed onto some scraps of blue gingham paper.
NJ For my summer scene I have used the fantastic new Studio 12 Picknix Collection. The kit I have used for my card this week is In The Garden Collection. I absolutely love the Studio 12 Digikits, so many possibilities to use them for. The summer scene I wanted to depict was like a Summer Fete with a lemonade stall!

Shary I've used the brand new Studio 12 Picknix Collection for my card this week. I've used a two of the three collections. The papers are from Welcome Home , the elements and sentiment are from the Heavenly Garden collection.The Heavenly Garden have both digi stamps and full colour embellishments on them. I took the bird house as a digi stamp and coloured it in with Copics. I've added stickles,clear star pen, twine and gems too to my card.

Shell-for my inspiration card this week I used the gorjuss image, papers and sentiment of the Sugar Plum Daisy cd. The image has been coloured using copic, I added a few pearls from my stash. I made the clouds with distress inks using a blender tool and a stencil made from card.
Claire - How lovely is the new range from Nikky called Studio 12 Picnix collection. I had loads of fun working on my samples for the new release and this I felt was perfect for the summer challenge!
Norine - I loved using this cute, cute image from the Sundae of Seasons cd!  Matching it up with patterned papers and a sentiment circle from the same cd.  I typed the "I BEE-lieve in you HONEY" on my vintage typewriter and I love the results!

Claire - Oh I struggled with this challenge, just not feeling the love for summer! I decided that I'd try and lift my mood by scrapping a summer holiday piccie of my son. I used the new Studio 12 Picknix Heavenly Garden collection for the sand coloured background paper, the sun, cloud and bunting. The lettering is also taken from the Studio 12 collection - All Sewn Up. The blue paper was taken from the Candy Dooodles Collectors Edition CD and the cute little beach huts came from the Sundae of Seasons CD.

AnneI've used the brand new Studio 12 Picknix Collection this week. For my creation I used the  In The Garden Collection which is perfect for the theme this week.
