Ruth:  I've used papers from Candy Doodles and X Cut dies along with a fab Emma Canning digi - Millie Birthday (and its only £1.25 - bargain!)  I've used Promarkers to colour plus a little liquid pearls.

Patty:  For my card I used image from Emma Canning - Taylor Camping Day and Dot papers from Sugar Birdies CD's in pastel colors lime green and light gray - add some layers of it and of top those layers Taylor Camping Day colored with Prismacolors in a bright and sweet combination of colors, and as a finished touch I added the banner with the words Glam, Chic and  your sew special adorned with 2 pink rhinestones. I love the outcome of this card special since I am improving on my coloring skills!!
Emma - I have made a lovely little bunting this week using the Sugar Plum Daisy Collection.

Shary -  I've made a card using my fav Emma Canning image called  Taylor - Camping Day. She's been coloured with Copics. The papers and sentiment are from the Candy Doodles CD Rom and I've stitched and distress inked around them.
Ashley- I have made a clean and simple banner card using the fabulous Picknix CD ROM. I added just glitter and an adorable owl from the Sugar Birdies CD ROM to finish it off. 
Miria - I made my card using a lovely Emma Canning's digi, I coloured it with Distress; paper and sentiment are from cd Candy Doodles, I used some scraps for the bunting and add rhinestones on the flowers.
Anne -  I've used the new Here Comes Christmas cd for my card this week.  I layered the letters onto the paper before cutting our the little banners.  The snowman was simply printed, cut our and stuck onto the card.

Norine - I absolutely LOVED this week's challenge...I'm all about the banners and bunting these days!!   And I adore the cute Emma Canning images!!  The background paper is from the new Picknix cd and the banner bits are miscellaneous scraps from Pretty Sweet, and the sentiment is from Sundae of Seasons.
Clare - This week I have made a rocker card and have used another lovely Emma Canning image and her name is Taylor "I'm Sorry". I have coloured her with Promarkers and covered her in Glossy Accents. The paper's are from Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1. The bunting is from a Stampin' Up punch. Ribbon, bow and buttons from my crafty stash. 
Daniele......I have used images and papers from the new Studio 12 Cd, layered up the bunting and lemonade stall......soooooo sweet..
