So let's see what the Design Team have for you this week!....

Scatty Jan Yummy ovals this time of year must mean Easter Eggs!! I cut the egg out on my portrait and used the lovely digi image Wesley How cute is he!!I coloured him with Graph'ir Markers - which I absolutely adore colouring with xx
Zoe - I decided to make a set of Easter cards and this challenge allowed me to use my oval dies that I've not touched for ages! I went through my scrap paper pile and pulled out enough paper to create the oval egg shapes on the front of each card. I created a simple background using an embossing folder. The characters I used are from Cherryblossom Lane collection & they are also available to download separately as Maisie and Wesley I coloured them both with my Graph It markers.
Debbi -I couldn't decide whether to make a card or bag for this weeks oval theme. So in the end I went mad and made both...lol :) I made the scalloped oval card using the Boys Hoot collection and have coloured the Cupcake Cutie digi. I have added a scummy chocolate Easter egg using foam pads to give some dimension. The bag was made totally from ovals which I cut from a spotty paper from the Christmas Joy collection (so it's not just for xmas) and inked the edged with Peacock Feather Distress Ink. The inner of the ears was made using a patterned paper from the Heart To Heart collection, as was the little heart I used for the nose.
Anjie - For my card I have used the Girls Hoot Download Bundle, which is a bargain at only £3.99 and fab for those of you who don't colour! Both the image and papers are from the bundle. For the eggs  I have added some text and cut them out. I also added the text on the balloon in a graphic program. The large flowers are from the DOWNLOAD Dollie Daydream Goes East.
Yvonne - For this weeks project, I too have thought Ovals at this time of year can only be easter cards! I used my oval cutting die on plain cardstock to make an oval card and trimmed the bottom to give a flat edge so it could stand. I coloured an image from Emma Canning, available from the Polkadoodles Digi Download Store, called Egg Hunt. I coloured the image with my Graph'It Markers, which can be found here. The papers are from the new Work & Play Collection 2 CD-Rom, not only has this collection got more fab characters, Nikky has included some truly stunning backing papers, as you can see on my card! I added some lace and flowers from my stash and I used Butterfly Flourish Signature Die.. I also added some beautiful butterfly's from the Doobadoo laser art collection available at Polkadoodles.
I decided to use my Sundae of Seasons CD Rom and picked this lovely flower in a flower pot and fence image and a dotty background paper.  I made a stepper card first of all.  Then die cut two ovals and cut out my flower image. Adhered it to the back of the card.  Cut out the fence and the smaller flower pot and added them to the front of the card.  I then added a ticket sentiment and coloured it to match the backing paper.
Jo- I created an oval box using a Cameo cut file for this weeks challenge, and used gorgeous springtime papers from the Flowers and Leaves bundle. I also printed off a few of the flowers from the same bundle and a sentiment from the Candy Doodles CD rom. I added some lace around the sides of the box for a vintage feel ;)
Susan - I used the very Pretty Cherry Blossom Lane CD again. This is such a pretty collection full of adorable little Bunnies and butterflies and Spring like things in an array of beautiful watercolour  pastels shades, so fresh and pretty.
Wow, another week of gorgeous inspiration, the team have rocked it again this week!
Don't forget - you don't have to use our products to enter so the challenge is open to everyone so long as you follow our rules in the sidebar!

  1. Can you tell me what the url is . Im no good on computers lol.x

    1. Tracey - a URL is the individual "web" address for your post, so that someone can find it directly, rather than looking through your whole blog.
      If you click on the title of your post on your own blog, the header bar in internet explorer/chrome/firefox will read something like "anyblog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/todays-card". Copy the text from the bar, and then paste it in the box for "Your URL" and you should be OK.
      Hope this helps.
