Here is some fab inspiration from the team...
Nikky...I don't get to join in very often but this week I managed...and I've used this lovely Mirabelle Mermaid image called Swimming Around from Polkadoodles Meribelle collection. I decided to turn her upside down as if she was floating around in the ocean...
Scatty Jan I had lots of fun making these simple trio of cards. I used two of the lovely stamps from the Daisydays collection. For my texture I used embossing folders. Lots more photo's and info on my blog xx

Anjie - I've used the Tropical Paradise Flamingo clear stamp set. I stamped onto my colouring card with a clear Versamark embossing ink, then added clear embossing powder over it and heat set it all. I then used 4 distress inks to create the background. This really makes the clear embossing pop and adds great texture. I then stamped and created the message topper in the same way. I added my squiggly line around the edges and mounted the sentiment using 3D foam pads. Finally I stamped some flowers and foliage, coloured them and added some pearls in the centre and glued in place. More info on my blog.

Tracy - I decided for my textured card to use this image from Winston Bear collection. It has many layers that adds texture and 3d look. If your into fussy cutting you will love this collection!
Katrina - As the start of the new term is only a few weeks away I've made a back to school card. I've used the pre-coloured version of the teacher image from the Work and Play 3 CD, and for the greeting I've used a stamp from the Sensational Sentiments set. I've added texture with an embossing folder that has an alphabet design, to fit in with the school/college theme.
Michelle For my project I have used the Winnie in Wonderland Collection I have used a digital image called I'm Late I have also used Design sheet 7 and the Ephemera embellishments and to add my texture I used Modelling paste and distressing tool...
Bev for my make this week I decided to give mixed media another shot. Its always a way of adding plenty of layers and texture. I used the Daisydays Stamp Me set as my main focal point and the background is a mixture of texture paste, acrylic paint, stamps & diecuts.

Claire C I've made a canvas using one of the digis from the Winnie in Wonderland Collection. I've coloured her with my Graph'It Markers and layered her up over one of the beautiful papers and lots of embellies from the same collection (you can find it here as a CD or here as a download). I've added lots of texture with glossy accents on the embellies, black gesso around the edges, some stencilling using glassy gel medium mixed with red acrylic paint and a border made of glitter.
Anita - I loved adding texture on my make this week using the fabulous Summertime clear stamps, My texture was embossing , Hessian, Lace, Cheese cloth, Distressed edges, wooden elements, Die cuts , Fibres and Twine. I had another play with water colours thank you nikky for introducing them too me.
