So let’s see what the design team have made for us....
Helen I've used 'Spooky Witch' digi stamp, 'Spooky Sentiments' and 'Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 1' download.
Jane – Hi everyone! Not quite sure how ‘sentimental’ I was feeling when I made my project as I have gone a little ‘zombiefied’ this week!!  I LOVE Halloween and as it is just around the corner I made a shadow box card featuring the gorgeous ODDELLA BOW who, as you can see, is a rather messy eater(!!).  I also used elements from the new SPOOKY SENTIMENTS collection and papers from some of the awesome HALLOWEEN BUNDLES that can be found in the SHOP!    Have a lovely spooooky day! xxx
Julie -- I decided to really emphasize the sentimental feel of this challenge, and I used a sentiment as the focal point of my card. I used Nikky's Card Shape 2, an SVG file.  The sentiment, frame, and papers are all from the Rose Budd Craft Digital Download  Collection.  It's also available as a CD.  Here's to all of you, dear friends!

Monica.-For my sentimental make, I used a bunch of different products: papers from Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 1 and Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 2; the adorable sentiment and the potion bottle from Spooky Sentiments; and the lovely witch, tag and bat from Sundae of Seasons.

Emma - For my 'Feeling Sentimental' card I have used the awesomely spooky new Halloween collection. I have used the 'You're Spooky' sentiment as the main focus & have added the spooky house & skull banner that you can find it Here I have coloured up Dracula using Copics & you can find him Here. Both of the papers can be found in this fab bundle Here 
Tanya...For this week's challenge I've used lots of the lovely sentiment tickets from the Work & Play Love collection and papers from that collection too and I've zentangled one of the Icky Inks Oddella images called Oddella Heart available here.  Hope you like it. 

Wendy - I love this sentiment from the Octavia Moonfly collection and had a picture of my dog, Kayla, that suited it perfectly so decided to do a scrapbook page.This has been made 100% digitally using Craft Artist. The shadow of the fairies, which are the pre-coloured images from the same collection, have been changed to silhouettes, again using Craft Artist. All the embellies are also from the Octavia Moonfly. Several of these elements are available in smaller kits too on the Octavia page.
Aunty SueFor my card I have used the fabulous Frosted Winter Octavia. I wanted to share some of the Embellishments and show how they can be a focal point. I have used the Candy Jar and added loads and loads of mini Ginger bread people inside. The cup is also an Embellishment I added some fluffy stuff for 3D effect. All the papers are from this CD too. The sentiment was my inspiration for this card and is the perfect Sentiment for these Embellishments dont you think! I just added some Ribbon, Lace and Pearls to finish.
Audrey, like Tanya, used a variety of different sentiments for my Feeling Sentimental creation.    All the sentiments I chose for today's creation are from the Witchie Witchie 2013 Download Bundle.  I also used 2 of the papers as well as the broom parking and graveyard embellies from the Witchie Witchie 2013 Download Bundle.  The image I chose this time is Witchie Skeleton Digi and the orange polka dot design paper is from the new Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 1.  I added a pumpkin die cut to round out the decorations on my card.
Anjie I have chosen to focus just on a sentiment as I adore the one I have used and thought it deserved to be the main focus of my card. The fabulous sentiment and the papers I have used are all from the Serenity collection. You can find the sentiments on their own HERE, and the papers HERE.
Wow, who knew sentiments could be so inspiring! Great makes from the DT I’m sure you will agree....
