Mia - This card is made using the papers from the Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun CD ROM and the beautiful unicorn is the Arctic Unicorn digi stamp please check out the rest of the details on this card over at my blog xx


Ria- For the winter birthday challenge I created a shakercard, I used one of my favourite stamps from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collections , this is Frosted Fox  and coloured it with watercolourpencils.


Scatty Jan - For my make for this challenge I went with winter colours of Blue, and made a cute owl bag perfect for a Birthday.  I used the template from Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun , and re-sized to 65% before cutting out.( I used pale blue card stock to make the bag shell.) I used some papers from the same collection and also some from Picknix 3 Nordic Winter.
The presents, cake, candle, and heart button are from Winston Collection
The Bow and Flowers from Octavia Moonfly Collection
and the sentiment from Rose Budd Collection
What a mix and match I just love using all different elements from the collections.
Lots more photo's on my blog xx
Jenny - Here's my idea for a winter birthday, I always think of blue and purple tones for winter. This card is made using Oddella Twig which I coloured with my Graph'its, the backing paper is from Octavia Frosted Winter and the sentiment comes from Work and Play 6, more details on my blog.
Melanie - I have done a hybrid project with the wonderful Work & Play 9 - Love and Kisses. This printed image from the CD was a beautiful match to my designer papers and the bling I added to her tiara just fit for a princess birthday card.
Jessie - Octavia has always been one of my favorite characters! And Frosted Penguins from the Octavia Frosted winter is no exception! I wanted to colour her in pinky purples and blue so I pulled papers from the Octavia Moonfly Collection which still made for a fantastic winter birthday card! She was painted with my inktense pencils.
Aunty Sue - Hi for my Winter Birthday I didn't want to go down the Blues colour theme, so went with a nice warm Red and the Blues with my background paper from Octavia Frosted Winter collection.  The Tree is also from this collection in the shop HERE.  The Cute girl is from Our Love and Kisses collection which you can find HERE you can purchase the image on its own also.  But do checkout this collection with Valentines just around the corner.
Jackie - I have used the gorgeous Work and Play10- Country Life collection for this week's card. The papers, image and sentiment are all found in it.The fox image on it's own is available here as a digi stamp to colour. I used lots of die cuts to create a white winter effect for the current challenge theme. Details on my blog.
Karon - I went back and used an older collection.  Studio 12 Picknix 2 - Gingerbread Twist for my papers and the sentiment.  Made a little faux shaker element and then added a single snowflake :-)

Wonderful inspiration from the design team.
