So let's get to today's inspiration...

 Merja - This time I used cute Scruff the dog Cupcake image and coloured it with alcohol markers. I also wanted to use this amazing Sweet Cake SVG, so I had to dig up my ScanNCut because I haven't used it for awhile. Otherwise the card is super simple. The background papers are from Love Always Papers 1 and I added some pink Distress Ink to edges and a satin ribbon between the two papers. I also added a few half pearls to the corners.

Ruth:  I've used the cute Blossoming Winnie image, coloured with Promarkers and used papers from Winnie Let's Hang Out collection - I've distressed the edges with scissors and resized the papers in a simple graphics program.  Computer generated sentiment, pearls and ribbon from my stash...

Nelly: Something different from me this week, I had a bout of crafters block and unmotivated to colour, i decided to use a printable sheet  from the Horace and boo collection found here horace-boo-big-kahuna-download-printable-craft-bundle/ Perfect to recharge the crafty juices.
Nunzia - I created an easel card using Horace and Boo coloring these fun and cute puppies with alchool markers. I created a scene coloring the background and I decorated the base with a printed paper from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven and flowers from Work & play Embellies Bundle. Finally I combined two sentiments for wishing the best birthday from Winnie Celebrations 3 and Winnie Sunshine Delights Sentiments
LynnetteFor my A5 card, Winnie Sunshine Delight digi stamp, coloured with alcohol markers and die-cut using scalloped and straight rectangle layering dies. I die-cut the floral paper from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven 4 using the same layering dies and I used the pink paper from Lily Bug Love Paper Heaven 2 for the background. I printed the pre-coloured flower from the Winnie Sunshine Delights Embellishments bundle off three times each and layered them up using foam pads. and I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Winnie celebrations 2 sentiments bundle and die cut it down. 
Pam - I used Winnie for my card this week...
EivorToday on my card I used the cute stamp "Suprise Cake Horace& Boo" and I colored it with copic sketch. I used Polkadoodles Fanciful Circles Nested Set - 6 Craft cutting dies, to cut out the image. The papers I used are from Birthday Fun 6x6, and the small words on the card I have cut out from one of the papers from the same paper pads.
Kim SimpsonI never seem to have enough birthday cards, so this week's challenge was a great excuse to add to my stash!  I love Horace and Boo, so I colored up this adorable Surprise digi and had a ton of fun layering up papers and embellishments from the collection!  

Ladies, thankyou so much for your beautiful ideas & inspiration!

So let's get to today's team challenge...we asked the team to create inspiration for you with a Spring Flowers theme..

Judy: My Spring Flowers project is a card using Bella Bear Bouquet. I colored this cute digi with Spectrum Noir Markers and fussy cut. The background papers and flowers are from the
Rose Budd Collection. I die cut the sentiment and layered oval frame.

Kim-This is a different card for me, no coloring! I used Fruit Punch Blooms digital flowers. I just arranged them and then printed them out, some right on the card stock the others I fussy cut to add dimension. The sentiment is from Winnie Celebrations 3 digital sentiments. Easy peasy! 
Ana - For this step side card I used three stamp sets: Perfectly Poised, Reach for the Sky and Forest FloorAll stamps are colored with Promarkers. For this card I also used some papers from Toadally cute paper pack and All about the dudes paper pack.
ENRICA - If a daisy doesn't make spring... many daisies definitely yes!!
For my slimline card I used precoloured digital stamps and patterned papers from the Daisydays Printables 
and the free template to create the flower pot shaped card. Are you beginning to smell the scent of spring too?
Gemma - This week I make a spring card with a pastel colors colored with stencil, distress ink and alcohol makers. The digital stamp I select is " The darling buds". I hope you like it.
Natalia  - We've left Valentine's Day behind, but I am still in this loving mood... :) 
The theme this week for our DT is Spring Flowers. I've made a wooden heart decorated with digi flowers. You can believe me or not but for this project, I used one collection - Daisydays - Downloadable Stamp ME Printables. I love daisy flowers even they are not strictly Spring flowers. I made them in 2 ways. First I was printing some in color. Second, I was following Nikky's advice and I printed some just like for watercolor painting on parchment paper and on handmade paper which is perfect for making 3D flowers. For the ones on parchment paper, I colored them with a white gel pen. After placing all my flowers, I added some splashes here and there.. of course, used also some Polkadoodles' stencil and polymer stamps to make my work a mixed media style. I Wish you a creative weekend!


Ladies, thankyou so much for your beautiful ideas & inspiration!

So let's get to today's team challenge...Love and Romance is on the cards for next week's 14th February celebration!...   

Merja - On my card I used adorable Love&Kisses digi and coloured it with alcohol markers. To the background I used Love Heart 1 stencil with Distress Ink and then added some pearl paste with Love Heart 2 stencil. The text is made with Sentimentals stamp set, and I taped it and the image to the background with foam tape.

Ruth:  I've used the Love You This Much digi, coloured with Promarkers and a bit of glitter on his shades.  I've also used some of the papers from the kit and added the sentiment across the bottom of the image using a graphics program.  Bakers twine and charm are from my stash...

Nunzia: Valentine's day is coming and this True Love digital couple are so in love. I colored them with alcohol markers, fussy cut and glued to a circular frame. All centered with double sided foam tape on the base. Papers come from Love Romance Love Kisses paper bundle and the sentiment with its tag from Love Romance Love Kisses sentiment-tags.

Pam: For my special "Love" card, I selected Wedding Car Since this year I am celebrating my first wedding anniversary on Valentine's Day. I've made a 'Fun Fold' card with the back being 5 1/4" x 8 1/2 and having a 5" square top fold card in the center. I've used Polkadoodles digital paper for the green mat, the burgundy strips and the gray flourish all from Winnie Celebration. All the details are on my blog-just click on my name. 
Nelly: Valentines day is on the horizon so for my card this week I have used true-love-digital-craft-stamp-download/ from the work-play-9-love-kisses-digital-craft-download-bundle/  I coloured the image using alcohol markers. The sentiments I used form this collection everlasting-sentiments-stamp-set-timeless-rose-collection/ 
LynnetteFor my A5 Valentine's card, I used Work & Play 9 Love &Kisses True Love digi stamp, coloured with alcohol markers and die-cut using heart layering dies. I used papers from the Work & Play Love & Kisses craft download Bundle, I used the large heart paper for the background and die-cut the striped paper using the same heart layering dies as before. The sentiment is from the same big download bundle as the papers, once again using the heart layering dies to make it heart-shaped. To finish I added 3 pearls that I coloured with a purple marker to match the card colour better, a ribbon, and a bow.
EivorI love making cards for Valentines Day, so this weeks theme "Valentines" suits me. I decided to created a shaker-card, the "shaker square" is made with the dies Posydoodles Square dies. I have colored the adorable stamp True Love with copics. I wanted the card to be fun and filled with happens so I used the papers Birthday Fun on the card. I just love the colors on the papers!! For details I cut out small tags with the dies Posydoodles Tags. The sentiment is from Winnie Sunshine Delight Sentiments
CarolineLove & Kisses - In this lovely stamp set is the perfect heart for Valentines Day! Using the Blushing Blooms paper pad I created several layers on top of each other. Stamp the floral heart onto one of the patterned papers four times. Heat emboss with a raspberry pink colour and then fussy cut out. Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment and put altogether with some ribbon inbetween the layers and tie with a bow.
Kim SimpsonThis week, the Design Team was challenged to create a Valentine's Day Card, so I decided to color up the darling Over the Threshold digi from the Work & Play Love & Kisses Collection using a combination of my Copic and Stampin' Up markers.   Now, I know that this is a bride and groom, but why can't it be used for a hot date on Valentine's Day?  💓
