Let's see what the team are giving you for inspiration....

Scatty Jan I so loved making my project this week I cut the watering can on my portrait  and used the stunning digi stamp Dollie Daydream Bouquet - which I coloured using Graph'it markers - The grass was cut using a die - But everything else (flowers/mushrooms/Butterflys/Ladybird ) were cut by hand and all from the scrummy cd Bonbon Belles xx
Debbi -The smell of spring is in the air, so I have made this pop-up card where the blooms just jump out at you. I used a cut file from Silhouette to make the card. The flowers where made using the very cute Heart to Heart download collection and I added some flat back pearls on the stamens. The front of the card was decorated using a babcking paper from the Boys Hoot collection and the beautiful sentiment was taken from the Cherry Blossom Lane collection and the whole thing is tried together with a length of pink ribbon.
Zoe - My favourite flower is the big daisy like Gerbera. So I was drawn to this flower bundle. I printed out my chosen flower a number of times in different sizes and chose a simple colour combo to colour them. I embossed the daisy background before arranging my flowers, some letters and coordinating card to mat finished it all off.
Yvonne - Hi everyone!! Enjoyed making this weeks project, I decided to make an 8x8 card, and I chose a floral backing paper from the Dollie Daydream - Girl Talk Collection, which I layered onto plain white cardstock. I printed a black and white garden image off of the Sundae of Seasons CD-Rom, which is available from Polkadoodles shop. I cut out the image and coloured it with my Graph'It Markers. Also on the same CD-Rom are the flowers from the garden image, so I cut a few out to decoupage the image.  I used All Dressed Up from the Girl Talk collection, again coloured with my Graph'It Markers.  The sentiment is also from the same collection, which I cut using a spellbinder die and coloured with pan pastels. I added the wooden embellishment and bling from my stash.
Susan ...Spring Flowers ,now isn't that a lovely thought a little bit of spring . This time I have used the papers and some embellishments from the Flowers and Leaves digi bundle, this set has some beautiful papers, toppers, embellishments and more, and the image is from the Fredericka collection which I just love, coloured with Graph'It markers the flowers are cut from velum and coloured with Graph'its,  added ribbon and die cuts and a little sprinkle of fairy dust. Happy crafting xx 

Anjie - I've done a CAS card for a change, not normally my style but wanted to show this image off to it's full potential. The image is Bee Happy and is coloured with Graph'It Markers. I've matted onto some pearl card and added an embossed panel which I have made using the Doobadoo Circles Stencil
Sally - Hi - I love the Spring, the warmth of the Sun! Bring it On I say!  Anyway, today's challenge was Spring Florals.  So I decided to look through all my Polkadoodle CD Roms!! What a collection I have! I chose Candy Doodles, this is such a pretty CD Rom. I love the papers images, everything really.  I chose the little boy holding a posy and printed off two backing papers and this image.  It is so easy. I cut the little fellow out and adhered him to the backing paper, cut out some flowers and butterflies from I new punch I have, with the other backing paper. Added a little glitter and centers to the flowers using dimentional paint and of course a sentiment.  
Jo - I diecut some pretty big flowers from gorgeous spring coloured backing papers from the back to nature collection and decided to use them on the base of an easel card. I love the impact it makes and it compliments the fab Dollie Daydream Bouquet digi stamp. It's a versatile image, perfect for Mother's Day this month. I added some smaller flowers and a stamped sentiment off the image which I hope is a quirky touch!
So there you go - Spring Florals.
