You can see the winners from our last challenge at the end of this post, but let's see what the fabulous team have for us this week!....

Scatty Jan I just adore this little Gardener he really is fun to colour up . He is part of Work and Play 1 collection and you can also find him in the Etsy store . Coloured in Graph'It markers. The Flowers and Dragonfly are from the Bonbon Belles CD. I used a little leaf punch and a grass die xx

Anjie - The beautiful image is by Emma Canning and is called Summer Stroll. She is coloured with my Graph'It Markers. I made the aperture card myself using some Spellbinders dies. The papers are from the Bonbon Belles Double CD as is the bunting. The butterfly is from one of the Tattered Lace mags and the ribbon and flowers are from my stash.  I have used some of the same paper to mat behind the image on the inside of the card to frame it.

Crafting Vicky - Ok so what is it with me starting with the team?!?  2 challenges already that are usually not my style... actually never made an aperture card lol.  But it was fun once I overcame my fright :)  So I used the fabulous Birthday wishes download bundle.  The sentiment comes from the set Celebrational Sentiments Download bundle.
Wendy - So excited when I saw this theme, I knew straight away the image I wanted to use. The ballerina and all the papers are from Work & Play 2, as is the ticker tape which comes as individual sentiment tickets, but I've adapted it into a strip using Craft Artist and coloured with Pan Pastels.
Julie For my card I made 3 apertures....The gorgeous images, sentiment, paper and beautiful border are all from the Christmas Joy digi download bundle available in the Digiworld Store HERE. The only other items I have used to finish off the card are my 2 Martha Stewart snowflake punches and glitter card and red gingham ribbon so the bundle is really good value for money. For further details please see my blog....
Sharon - Welcome to the aperture week! My card is a little hippie sitting under a tree. I colored Emma Canning's Guitar boy image with my alcohol markers and used Emma's  Green brown and white paper downloads. The tree is cut using a spellbinder die and matted under the top paper.
Patty - I was going to make aperture card with a open view, but I switch it a little and make a Easel Card making the aperture of the card totally different as normal! I colored Emma Canning's Love in the Air  image with my copics and use papers from  Pretty Sweet Collection . Used Big Scallop, Big & Small Circles  spellbinder Nestabilities. some papers are from my stash, the green ribbon for the tails and bow and final the sentiment is from a stamp laying around my desk. This is a completly different Happy Birthday card.... 

Yvonne  - Hi everyone! For this weeks challenge I used a 7x7 card and cut out the centre with a square spellbinder to give me an aperture window.  I printed off the Boat Digi Stamp from Dollie Goes East Collection which you can get as a CD-Rom and digi download or you can just download the image from either the digi store. The paper is from the same collection as are the flowers, butterfly's and the sentiment.
Wow, what great makes we have this week, as always!!
