Now let's see what the Design Team have been up to.

Naz -  The image I have used here is the Bride/Princess Color digi from the Work & Play Collection 9 - Love & Kisses - I have added some glitter accent and a pearl to the image for embellishment. All the papers I've used on this card are from the same collection. I've used some distress ink on the edges of the papers.I have finished off the card with a sentiment and a heart banner.


Jenny - I've used the pretty collection Cherry Blossom Lane for my card this week. We all use dies quite a lot so for this card I decided to go back to a bit of decoupage.  My die is a Tattered Lace one and is very useful. I hope you can come on over for a visit to see what I did to make this.
Ruth:  This was a special Birthday card for a Manchester City mad lady - I used the Work and Play Footballer Girl digi stamp and coloured her up with Promarkers.  The die used is the grass Sizzix die and I hand wrote the Birthday flag.

Anjie - The image and papers are from the Work and Play 6 CD. This is also available as a download HERE. Or you can just buy the Landlord digi image HERE. I've coloured him with my Graph'It Markers. I have used a Spellbinders die to cut the image out, a Marianne die for the clock and a Tattered Lace die for the bottle and the sentiment.
Bev here and his fortnight I've made a card is for my neighbour. Pretty Tuff is a fab resource for male cards. I used pencils to colour in Dylan, The papers and sentiment are all from the CD. The hb2u lettering is from another fab CD Cherryblossom Lane but coloured in with Graph'its to change the colour.
Susan ~ Happy Friday everyone and believe it or not I have used a die, but most of it is covered with embellishments. I have used the Stunning Eden  collection yet againI have used Graph'it Markers and Pencils to colour her.
Anita ~ Hello there today I brought to you paper from the sugarplum daisy collection and flowers from sundae of seasons and used the gorgeous piper with bunches and yes I used 1 die and coloured with alcohol markers.

Ria: For my card I used the Work and Play 8 collection Music. I coloured guitar girl with alcohol markers and enhanced her skin with pencils. The white dots are made with a white Molotow marker. The 2 red star dies are not from this collection everything else on my card is from the Music collection.
Claire C I've used lots of papers, embellies, flowers and butterflies from the gorgeous Octavia Moonfly collection (which you can get as a download here or on CD here). There are so many goodies in this collection I went into a bit of a printing frenzy so I didn't need to add much else, just a little lace and some die cut flourishes.
Jane: I have used "Amelia Contemplating" image from the Pretty Sweet collection (which is available as a digi download). Papers are from the Pretty Sweet CD. I have added a window die cut as my embellishment.
Wendy -  I've made a notelet set for this challenge. Inside the box are 4 mini cards, which have all been printed directly onto with colour co-ordinating papers from the Rose Budd Collection. The images on each notelet are pre-coloured and from the same collection, however each can be bought as an individual stamp aswell. here  Miss Rose, Miss ConstanceMiss Harriet & Miss Hetty.
