Well done everyone! Thankyou all for entering and playing along with us, please grab your blinkies from the sidebar! 

So let's get to the challenge!...

Ruth: I've used the fab Paper Boutique Vol 3 to make my card - I cut out all the elements and layered them up how I wished, added some wobbly eyes and glossy accents to the nose. I've layered it up using foam pads for depth. A really great card to make and a wonderful cd too!
Claire C: This challenge was a great excuse to use one of my favourite cds, Cherryblossom Lane to create this 'bendy' card. The CD is on offer at the minute so don't miss it as such a bargain price! The background is one of the precoloured scenes from the Cd and I've coloured the images with my Graph'It markers.

JAN - I decided to go all yellow ready for Spring with my make today. I made a shaped card - all papers, images and sentiments are from the 'Sugarplum Daisy CD' with a few extra little embellies from my stash, including some honeycomb embossing peeking out at the bottom!
Karon -  It's so fun looking through the CD's and finding so many new things to play with.  I made a shaped card using the pre-coloured log and mushrooms, from the Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD  Then had to add the cute Happy Birthday Owl from the Sugar Birdies CD, which I coloured with pencils.  Added a little bit of bling to finish her off.
Kerrie - I had a good think for this Challenge and Chose to use 'Double Sprinkles of Kraft' CDrom this was my first ever Polksdoodles CDrom and still a firm Favourite of mine. I love the Owls on this CDrom but I also love the Pastel Colours mixed with the Kraft Card styles of papers etc aswell. I chose an Image and then had fun choosing Papers, Sentiment and Flowers in similar colour ways and then coloured the Image to match in with the colours I picked. I settle on making a shaped card after i chose the sentiment because its a similar shape. and I couldnt resist a jaunty angle xx

Fabulous makes from the team as always! Don't forget you have until 18th April at noon GMT to enter this challenge and the winner will receive a copy of our Work and Play 1 collection which is worth £10 so well worth entering this one!
