You can see the winners of our last challenge from Week 6 at the bottom of this post, but let's see what the team have made for you this week...

Karon - I decided to use the lemonade stand from the In the Garden section of the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1CD.  I made a shaped card by sizing the pre-coloured digi of the lemonade stand, layered it up to add dimension.  The boy and girl pre-coloured images, and the sentiment, are from the Sundae of Seasons CD.
Zoe - I instantly thought of the colour palette when I saw this challenge so decided to colour an image I hadn't attempted before, this Daisy Lady (as I call her) is from the gorgeous Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD. I coloured her with a mix of markers including the fabulous Graph It's. Once finished I decided to keep it simple. I added a few flowers and some candi. I wanted to keep this card for any occasion so didn't put a sentiment on it deliberately.
Sally - For this week's project I have made my step-granddaughter's birthday card. I took the image from Dollie Daydreams goes East CD Rom and coloured her with Graph'it markers. Then I took a backing paper and the alphabet into my graphic programme and made the card base. I then matted it onto black cardstock. I then matted the image on black cardstock also. Die cut out some cherry blossom and branches and then printed a sentiment scroll.  I love how this has turned out. I hope she loves it too.
Asha - I'm using a girlie rubber stamp called "Gracie"  from Polka Doodle's Fairy Flutterby series for my Sugar and Spice project. I coloured her with Graph It and Promarkers. I stamped the butterfly from the Gracie set on vellum, heat embossed it in white and used it as wings for Gracie. The background paper is from the Bonbon Belles Double CD and the flower is from the Dollie Daydream Girl Talk CD. And voila! A sweet birthday card for a little girl.
JAN - I used one of my favourite Polkadoodles CDs - 'Candy Doodles' to make my card this week. The Sugar & Spice theme made me think of sugared almonds - hence the colour scheme. The little girl is coloured to match using my Promarkers and I made the tickets, using a blank one and adding my own wording to match the theme.
Alethea - When I think of sugar and spice I automatically think of yummy cakes and slices. So I made this card using one giant cupcake from the Cherryblossom Lane cd collection and Dollie Daydream - Birthday digistamp which I coloured with tria markers! I then just added a few embellishments to finish off the card and the Polka Doodles birthday wishes sentiment from the Sensational Sentiments stamp set.
Kerrie - Wow I have really enjoyed the Theme this week - 'Sugar & Spice' - for this I chose to decorate a Notebook to make myself a Recipe Book and decided to use the 'Sundae of Seasons' CDrom as I really love all the baking themed Embellishments and the Ragdoll charaters. The only things that were added not from the CDrom were Mirror Board & Gems from my Stash and the Notebook of course. I coloured the Digi Image from CDrom using alcohol markers.
Claire C - I've used precoloured decoupage images from one of my favourite Polkadoodles CDs, Candy Doodles, I've added glitter, glossy accents and faux pearls to the cupcakes and added some of Nikky's fab ticket sentiments to finish off
Fantastic inspiration from the team as always!
