Anyways, lets see what the Design Team have for you this week.

Karon - Hmmm For the Boys eh!  I couldn't resist using a lovely pre-coloured scene from one of the envelopes in the Cherryblossom Lane collection.  I added some fencing and coloured the river with a grey pencil - to change it to a road :-)  Then added Horace as he is out for a country walk :-)


I have a second card to share with you this week - I have used the new release Winnie in Wonderland.  I love this rabbit!  Everything you see is from this collection and I have added layers to add dimension to the card.


Alysha - Well I will be kicking off my first challenge as a newbie DT with Polkadoodles with this lovely masculine card, I just love his cheeky demeanor and I have to say his little doggie is pretty darn cute too!  This card was created using the Pretty Tuff CD from Polkadoodles.  I hope you like my DT card for this challenge and will come on over to Polkadoodles Challenge Blog  and join in the fun with us, hugs Aly xx



Scatty Jan - Something a little different for me this week , Stamping!! After all these years of saying I couldn't stamp - I followed all the Underlay sheets on Summertime . I now adore stamping so much!
I used stamps from both the new collections for my little scene Summertime and Daisydays I used the stamps to make the fishing rod, fish , fish hook, bubbles and trees and also the sentiment. Trees and grass were coloured in watercolours, The sky was done in pastels and the water using Graph'It Markers along with mix it fluid and a dish cloth .


My second card this week I used the lovely beach hut digi from Summertime and coloured using Graph'It Markers - for the sky and sand I used pastels. The shell and the boat were made using a couple of leaf stamps from the stamps from Daisydays.


Carol - for my inspiration this week I have used some of the lovely pre-coloured elements from the Sticks and Bones collection to make a quick birthday card.


Fabulous inspiration by the Design Team.
