Anjie - I've used  Winnie Special Moments collection to make this, and it is design sheet number 6, which you can buy here on it's own if you wish.

So let's see this week's inspiration from the team!...

Ruth:  I've used Work and Play Vol 7 - the figure is all decoupaged and I've simply added some die cut letters from my stash - easy peasy!
Jacki   For my card I have used elements from a design sheet from the Belle Papillon collection I love this collection is so romantic I have gone for a mixed media shabby chic look.
Helen - Just love Winnie Special Moments and this lovely design sheet reminds me of learning to ride a bike and my Dad putting me on the lawn for my first go without stabilizers thinking it would soften the landing and LOL I just rode off on it. I made a twisted easel card using papers from the big kahuna collection http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/winnie-special-moments-big-kahuna-digi-kit-download/ and the bicycle made for two design sheet http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/a-bicycle-made-for-two-design-sheet-winnie-special-moments-craft-digi-download/
Lisa - I have used a design sheet and sentiment from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection to make a Christmas Card.
Norma, I made this kind of vintage but cute card using a design sheet from Winnie Winterland, I think is very easy to made them using this sheets, I don't know you, but sometimes is a little difficult to get the paper that goes exactly with you stamp. and I love than even I got the flowers in the seme sheet.  Now the problem is to select what to use when all of them are super cute.
Carol - I used Design Sheet 6 and Design Sheet 9  from Winnie in Wonderland to make my twisting pop up card  this week. I love how all the elements on the design sheet go together to make such a lovely coordinated card so easily. Here is my card closed....
And here it is open showing all the lovely decorations....

Jan Craftica....Today Im playing with the lovely Winnie Winterland - Design Sheet 9 . I made 2 Memory dex cards for my collection with the Christmas theme....
Shylaa -I have chosen the design sheet from the Belle Papillon collection. The shabby look of the design sheets is perfect for a mixed media card. Added some handmade flowers,glitters, clear dots, laces & threads for finishing it.
As always, Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you this week...
Our Winner and Top 3 of our last challenge will be announced next Friday.

Helen -  Use hot colours!! well I thought I know haven't used some of those awesome colouring pages for a while and they're just perfect for some hot colours.

oOo--oOo--oOo

Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week....
the Design Team's spin on the challenge is to inspire you with some Hot Colours...

Tina Today I have a card for you, which I created with the ingenious stamp set Stamp Soup and watercolors. From many parts of the plant you can create diverse flowers, but also animals and other patterns. It is always exciting what you can create with it. I love this stamp set and still have to play around a lot with it, to find out all possibilities.
Scatty Jan For my project this week I have made a matching card and tag, Using the lovely stamp sets~Belle Papillon and Bella Fleur The backround was done using Panpastels and a few stencils
Angie - Ohhhhh what fun I had colouring up these gorgeous stockings in Hot Colours using my Copic markers! I have used the Winnie Winterland Bundle again with the black & white image being Digi #11. Both sentiments are in the Sentiments file and are on sheets #04 and #09.
That gorgeous Candy Cane paper is from the Papers file and is #12 and can be found here also in Paper Haven 3.

Michelle Love this little hippo Helga I coloured her up with Prisma Pencils I used the Helga Collection for my project  I used one of the black and white images and I also used the one of the gorgeous papers from this collection I also used a Polkadoodles die.
BevI used Ula Be A Princess coloured up with my Prisma pencils & combined it with the oh so useful Ula's Life  to make a pretty little cover for an otherwise boring notebook.

Anjie - To make this I've used the Tropical Paradise Flamingo Clear Stamp set. Lots more details and close up photos on my blog.

Claire C I've used some of the beautiful butterfly  and flower stamps from Belle Papillon and Bella Fleur stamp sets. I embossed the butterflies and flowers with black embossing powder and painted using yellow and hot pink watercolour paints. A few paint spatters and a doodled border and the card was finished.

As always, Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you this week...
Our Winner and Top 3 of our last challenge will be announced next Friday.

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team - their theme for this challenge is holidays but you do not need to follow this theme to enter the challenge...
    Tina This time I tested a new card shape: Magic Reveal Spinner Card. 2 images are placed on top of each other and the first image moves as you rotate under the bottom image. Then you can see the second image. I used different images and papers for my card from Winnie Starfish & Sandcastle Vip Bundle and colored with Polychromos. More details and photos to the card shape you can find on my Blog. 


    Scatty Jan For my project this week I have mainly used the lovely collection Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles, I have made a pocket page mini album. I loved using all the delish papers, this really was a labour of love , there is lots more info and stacks more pics on my blog...

    Anjie - I've also used the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection to make it, well just the lighthouse digi which you can buy in a smaller collection here. Or even on it's own here. Lots more details on my blog.
    Angie J - I've made a Journal Page using Ula's Life Collection. I have coloured up Ula Don't Listen black & white image with my Copic Markers, and used one of the sentiments from Ula Sparkle.
    I have created my own background papers in my Art Journal.
    Michelle I have made a card using Twiggy and Toots image from the Twiggy and Toots collection which I coloured with prismacolor pencils and I also used the Starfish and Sandcastle Collection for the paper and pre coloured embellishments...
    Bev here with my cool creation for a summer themed card. I kept it CAS using Winnie Starfish & Sancastles....
    Lou: I decided to use the Tropical Oceans and Tropical Underworld clear stamp sets to create my card. I've also used the Cherry Blossom Branch die to create my seaweed. More photos etc, can be found on my blog.
    Claire C Ive used one of the supercute images from Work and Play 4 to make this beach themed card.  You can find the full collection here or you can get Swimming Girl as a digi stamp here. I've coloured the image with pencils and used PanPastels to crete the background
