Let's get to the Design Team inspiration - they have some fantastic makes for you today! ......

Katie Yeah Spring is here!  I cannot wait to see my first little lamb. But with this weeks inspiration I thought I would go 3D. I used the digi image from Emma Canning and the backing paper I used for the swirls on the bird cage was from Bon Bon Bells CD . Have fun with this challenge and Keeeeeeeeeeep Crafting Katie xx
Scatty Jan - ohhhh what great fun I had making my project this week - I cut out the wheelbarrow on my portrait and then I used the fantastic CD Bonbon Belles and cut out the flowers and the butterfly.
Bev here with this weeks DT piece a cute little shaped tag. It's made using the oh so versatile Sundae of Seasons CD Rom this is all printed out using one sheet!  All I added from my crafty stash was a button, a bit of sparkle and some raffia around the handle.
Shell-For my "Spring is in the air" card I have made a card in a box, I did cheat a little and used a cutting file to make the box...I'm rubbish at measuring lol....The image is off the Fredericka mini collection and the sentiments are from the Fairy Flutterfly stamp sets (half price at the moment too)
And here is a photo from the side. The layers on the box have been embossed and inked with distress ink...I went with yellow for this challenge cause it always reminds me of the daffs in spring.
Susan - For my challenge card I have used Papers and an image from the new Work and Play 1 CD
I used Graph.It markers to colour the image,( List of Graph'Its used can be found on my blog )
Looking forwards to seeing all your entries.
Patty - I made a Birthday card using papers from Candy Doodles and the Girl is from Sugar Daisy I accent her colors using color pencils, then I stamped the flower from Fairy Flutterfly Stamps on pink and yellow CS cut them and put them together and added one Doodle Dewdrop to each of the flowers. And finished my card with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stamp Doodles Rubbers stamps set. I had so much fun making this card and  love how it turned out.

Ruth: I've gone literally this week and made an exploding box with springy MUM letters! The papers are from Pen and Paper Circle issue 9 and I've used a Sizzix die to cut the letters and then added them to some craft wire which has been very much glued underneath the rolled flowers. I've added some clear doodle drop gems to the centres for extra sparkle - and they are reduced in the shop too!

I'm sure you 'll agree the inspiration from the team this week is just stunning! We'll see you back here next week, thanks for joining us! x
