Helen - I'm here with my 4th and final GDT spot, I've had a great time joining you lovely ladies and have thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks for having me! I've used 'Twiggy and Toots Paper Heaven 5 Bundle' and 'Eden - Plain Jane' papers download plus 'Winston Bear Etty Sewing' digi stamp.

Naz - Hi everyone, I'm joining you this week from the Polkadoodles team as a GDT as I had some spare time and wanted to do some extra DT work. On my card I have used the colour combo of yellow and green with a hint of blue. Everything I have used is from the Work and Play 10, Country Life collection.
AnjieEveryone who knows me knows this bright blue is my fave colour of all time and that I also love purple. This past 3 or 4 years my hair has been both of these colours a few times!
The image, papers, embellies and the sentiment are all from the fabulous Octavia Frosted Winter download collection. If you prefer this on CD you can buy that HERE. And you can buy the image on it's own HERE.

Jane – Now like most of you I have a few fave colour combos but at the very top of that list has to be the super lush lilac/purple with blue/aqua! So as these are cool shades I chose a cool image to work with called ICE FISHING and she and her puffin are available as an individual digi or as part of the incredible OCTAVIA FROSTED WINTER COLLECTION.  The papers and sentiment are also from this collection and I coloured with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

Tanya...I'm a proper colour combo girl and love love love colour in general, especially bright colours and after a long think I decided to go with pink and brown and made this sweet 70th birthday card, again like last week, using the Winston Collection.  This time I've used Etty Sewing and have decoupaged her and the papers and sentiments and button embellishments are from the collection to.  You can buy the collection on CD HERE or on Download HERE or even as a black and white digi HERE.  

Julie -- I went 3 ways with this theme, using my favorite Copic combinations, using pink and blue on my card -- a favorite of mine, and using this person and dog stamp -- a great, colorful combination!  The stamp and papers are part of a mini collection called "Kath Walking the Dog Digital Craft Download".  The sentiment is from the Winston Deluxe Paper Crafting collection.  I distressed the edges of all the papers to give it more of a rugged, outdoorsy look.
Monica.-My favorite colour combo are "earthy" tones, that´s why I love Autumn. Of course for my make I have had to use "Autumn/Fall digi stamp bundle". I used precoloured elements; also papers from Picknix.-In the garden and the sentiment is from Dollie Dream Goes East.
Lynda: My favourite color combo is Cool Aqua, pale brown and white so the papers from the Nordic Winter collection are just perfect, their definitely on my must have Christmas stash list.  This collection is available on  CD or as a digital download.  The image I used is so cute. he's called Hollybobs-snowballing. Have Fun xx 
Emma - My fav colour combo just has to be Blue & Purple, whenever I reach for my colouring medium I alway seem to pick up blues & purples. I have used Husky Hugs from the Frosted Winter Collection who can be found as an individual digi Here & I have coloured her up using Prismacolor Pencils. All of the papers are from the full Frosted Winter collection that can be found Here
Wendy - One of my favoured combo's is pink & green, I love the contrast of them together. For this card, I've used Octavia - Bird in Hand as my main image. The sentiment is also Octavia, but from the Moonfly collection, as is the alphabet I've used to make the 'daughter' tag and the pink backing paper.
Aunty Sue -  Hi well how long have you got Being a Gemini I have different favorite colour combos depending on the season and my mood. However this being Autumn I just love Browns with Orange and Green. For my card I have used Work & Play 10 - Country Life . The image i have used is Dog walker which is something I love to do. The papers are also from the CD. 
Audrey's favorite color combo is Pink, Purple and Turquoise.  I chose my image, Octavia Moonfly Rose Garden from the Octavia Moonfly Digital Craft Bundle, she can also be purchased as a single image HERE.  Image is colored with Copics and I made an aperture display card to showcase this beautiful image.  I chose papers from Eden Big Kahuna Download Collection and they can also be found in Eden Collection Paper Heaven 5 download.  My sentiment is from Work and Play Collection Volume 11.
