So let’s see what the design team have made for us.
You know we have been asking for GDT’s to join us for a few challenges, well today we are joined again by the lovely Julie Odil and Audrey.

 If you would like to join us please add GDT after your name on your challenge entry.

Julie - I'm back with my second GDT make for the team. I have used Odella Bow. I used Serenity papers . Odella ended up being a bit on the soft side.
Audrey - I chose Octavia Friendly Hugs for my image, papers and sentiment from Octavia Big Kahuna download. I used die cuts for image, sentiment and all the flowers which I cut from digi papers found in Octavia Big Kahuna set.

Scatty Jan  I have coloured up the lovely Serenity Princess for my card, My colouring was done using pencils - She really is cute, you can buy her as a single digi here, but I used the collection , which contains some lush papers , I love the lemon starry paper it suited the image perfectly - The collecton you can find here. Using a Flower punch and a leaf die and some added pearls to finish.

Anjie -  The cute image, little elf, and papers are from the Work and Play Festive Hollibobs Download Collection, which is also available as a CD

Wendy - For this weeks card, I've used Maddie Twirling Curls from the Pretty Sweet CD collection,  you can get Maddie as a digi download here. My die is the Just for You Pansy topper set and cut from papers from the Work & Play 6.

Monica - I have to be honest, I don´t use die cuts nor punches. I have used my money to buy a cutting machine and all my die cuts comes from my dearest "Cameo". But Nikki also thinks in us, the cutting files fans, and has created stunning files for us -as good as any die cut-. For my project I used the flourish corners and the birdcage cutting files included in the beautiful Eden Collection. The papers, bird and letters to make the sentiment, are also included in the same collection.

Tanya - I've been colouring again and really enjoyed working with this Oddella Twig Image and my Graph It Pens. I've used the papers from the Work & Play Love Collection which I mixed it up with Kraft card and twine and orange sparkly dome gems to match Oddella's hair.  The die I've used is the Tattered Lace Panorama Grass Large one.

Emma - For my card I have coloured up the lovely Octavia Moonfly Wistful who can be found Here. All of the papers & flowers are from the full Octavia Moonfly Collection that can be found Here
I have used quite a few dies that I had lying around but I didn't realized how bad a crafter I was until I found that I do not own any punches lol

Aunty SueHi this week for my Punches and Diecuts Card I am using Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollibobs which you can find in the shop HERE as a download. Oh wow so much lovely Christmas images coloured and Digi with tons of embellishments and papers. My punches are round the page punch which I used on the Green backing and my Dies are the Tree and Santa and Raindeer. Image is coloured with promarkers.

Yvonne - Hello! This week I decided not to make a card and opted for a wee gift bag instead. I cut it out with my Silhouette using a paper from the Serenity Collection. Whilst I was there I also cut out Serenity Kisses. I used the pre-colored image which you can only get as part of the whole collection which is available as a Digi Download or as a CD-Rom.  

Jane – Hi everyone!  I love using punches and dies so this challenge was ideal for me! My make this week is a bauble hanger made using one of the gorgeous images from the fabulous TWIGGY AND TOOTS FESTIVE FUN COLLECTION! The image is called TWIGGY AND TOOTS TRIMMING THE TREE and is available to purchase separately if you wish but you really have to get the whole bundle! Just too many gorgeous things that you NEED!! Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

Lynda: I used the very beautiful Eden Collection for this weeks challenge it's available on a  CD or  as a download collection. The digi I used it called Eden Blossoms,she's so pretty, I used three die cuts to finish off the card, a tree on it side to made a flowery border, the leaves and the oval that frames Miss Blossom. Have Fun xx
