Ok, now the business stuff is out of the way let's get onto the challenge and see all the inspiration!

Scatty Jan Oh what fun I had making this bendy card , This is a first for me and I can see myself making plenty more . They lay flat to send too which is a bonus. I cut the card on my portrait - The tree and grass are dies. I used the Pretty Tuff CD - the boy, dog and wall all from the CD - The boy Kevin is also available as a stand alone digi  - just perfect for teenage cards. I used Graph'it Markers to colour xx
Zoe - As soon as I read the challenge theme I knew I wanted to use the Emma Canning - Deer Friend image  which I coloured with a mix of markers. The image is perfect for many an occasion. I created the background using papers and elements from the Animals/nature bundle  which I took into Craftartist to digitally layer and edge. I added some lace and flowers with Candi to the project to finish it off.
Anjie - On my card this week the image is Emma Canning Nuts About You Download which is available on instant download so you can play straight away, one thing us crafters need to do! lol
The papers are from the fabulous new Work & Play Collection 1. The sentiment and bunting are cut from dies from Tattered Lace and the buttons are from my stash.
Debbi - I couldn't resist using the super cute Emma Canning Love Letter digi stamps for this weeks challenge. It's great fun to use the digi in a different way and using it as a shaped card. I decorated 'Ted' using the Dollie Daydream Girls Talk collection, with the striped, colourful flowers and stitching papers. I raised paws using foam pads to give a 3D look.
Yvonne - For this weeks challenge I decided to make an easel card and I wanted to use the ever so cute Mr Mousey which is available on instant download and you can get him here.  I also used Cherry Cupcake and Strawberry Cupcake which are also available on instant download from Polkadoodles.  The papers are from Emma Canning Paper Wraps.  
Jo- All the papers, the cute fox and the embellishments I have used for my card this week are from the Emma Canning animals and nature bundle. It is packed full of elements that all coordinate perfectly. I printed the fox three times so I could decoupage her, and I added little highlights of glaze to her nose, the acorns and leaves.
Sally - So today's challenge is Animals - Ummm..... so I went  to look in my stash of lovely Polkadoodle CD Roms and decided to use the  Sugar Plum Daisy CD Rom. This is one of my favourites!  I say that about all of them!  Well, the images and backgrounds are so cute, I just couldn't resist.  I printed off a background first, then an couple of bumble bees and then a couple of hedgehogs. I then printed off a sweet little girl and and sentiment.  I adhered the background to black cardstock, and made a stepper card.  I then cut out the bees, little girl and hedgehogs. I floated the bees on a piece of acetate, so it looks like they are buzzing around her. On the stepper front I matted the ribbon that was on the background sheet with black and added the sentiment and hedgehogs.
Susan = This week I have used Papers from Dollie Daydreams Girl Talk and an image from Emma Canning Puppy Love I used Graph'it markers to colour the image Card and all embellishments cut out on my cameo.
So there you go - what gorgeous makes this week!!

Please try again or return a bit later." I have returned again and again and cannot get it to let me "follow" any sites. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is it possible to follow by email and still participate in the challenge if I can't figure this out?
