So let’s see what the design team have made for us.

AnjieThe image is from the fabulous Eden collection from Polkadoodles, as are the papers and embellishments. She is coloured in with my Graph'It Markers. I have used a Tattered Lace  over the edge die to create the card blank and a Spellbinders die for to 2 die cut butterflies.
Caz  For my project i have used the gorgeous Octavia Moonfly Dragonfly. Coloured with Graph it  markers..You can also find this digi, along with the papers i have used, and wording on the fab Octavia Moonfly collection available as a Download or if you prefer CD..The dragonflys are my die.

Tanya....I love using dies especially since I bought a new Grand Calibur a few weeks ago.  I’ve a few dies in my stash that I’ve been wanting to use for a while so after looking through my stash I thought that my hot air balloon dies fitted the Cherry Blossom Lane collection really well so using papers from the Work & Play 3 Collection  I set about cutting the balloons out and then chose some of the scenes from the great Cherry Blossom Lane CD and then decoupaged the coloured digis of Noah and the Bicycle Days for the scenes and finished off with a sentiment tag from the very very latest Work & Play 10 Country Life  
Scatty Jan For my card this week I have used the fantastic Eden collection also available as a download - It's also available in lots of smaller collections that you can check out here . I used Eden Blossom how stunning is she - I opted to use the pre - coloured image from the CD but you can also buy her as a digi here - I used the same die as Caz - Dragonfly by Creative Dies, which was a freebie from a recent magazine. Everything used is from the Eden collection the only extra's added was a single lilac pearl to hold the sentiment , my die and the center to the bow xx
Kate   Having just discovered the gorgeous Cherryblossom Lane collection I decided to use the sweet Noah as well as papers from the collection. Noah is available as a digi stamp as well as a clear stamp setFor my die cut element I made the sentiment flags using a Joy Crafts alphabet die. You can see more details on my blog....

Lynda: Hi x Being the mad cat lady I am I couldn't resist using the Work&Play 10 Collection - Country Life!! The digi stamp used is called Milktime and you can buy her as part of the collection or separately here. The background papers and the cute bow are also from the same collection. I used a little leaf die by Marianne. 

Wendy - For my card this week I've used a paper, the sentiment and a pre-coloured image of Etty's New Dress, all from the Winston Collection. If you have more time than me over the Easter Holidays, you can also get Etty as a digi  on the collection or on her own here to colour yourself. My die element is a border die from Spellbinders.
Monica- For this week, I made a sliding recipe box, with the lovely Piper with bunches sitting on a bench -that`s my die-. But what I love the most of my recipe box are the stunning papers and elements from Picknix 1.-Home grown bundle.

Jane – Hi everyone!  I love the ever decreasing aperture look and used my Tonic die set to achieve this!  My boss turns 60 soon so this card is for him using the wonderful Winston Full Collection! He is an avid fisherman so Winston Bear Gone Fishing was the perfect image! He also has a very bushy grey moustache so I just had to add one.  This can be found in the Personalities section of Work and Play 7! I kid you not!  He’s sure to recognise himself! Enjoy your day! xxx
Yvonne - Hi there everyone! I have dies coming out of every cupboard in my house, but I only used one die this week and I'll tell you why, the NEW Work & Play 10; Country Life came out and it has SO much in it, I wanted to play with it and not so much with the die! Lol! I chose to use 'Foraging for Mushrooms' which I coloured with my Graph'It Markers, you can see a range of them here.  The die is from Tattered Lace.
Christine  I used the following collections for my card.  W&P 9 Love And Kisses Collection, I used the Bride And Groom Digi, Digi papers, and sentiment included in the set.  I colored my bride and groom  with colored pencils and Spectrum Noir Markers.  I used the Plain Jane Papers, and some of the embellishments out of the Eden Collection. My dies I used for my card Heart Ribbon from Memory Box and the Heart Flowers.

Great makes from everyone I’m sure you will agree!
