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

Helen - Well after a month, I was asked to stay for another term of being a GDT and of course said yes! This time I've used the Beautiful Birdhouse 2 Digi, together with a backing paper form the Eden Collection Paper Heaven pack 1.

Jane – I do love all the gorgeous autumnal shades that we have right now but rarely use them so I really enjoyed the chance to play with different colours for a change.  As I have another brother and sister-in-law with a wedding anniversary coming up (I mean how selfish!) I needed a card to celebrate their day and this is what I made!  The beautiful peacock image is a digi from one of my all-time fave collections DOLLIE DAYDREAM GOES EAST where you can also find this sentiment.  I printed the image twice onto Kraft card, flipping one so that they are facing each other.  I coloured with my Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils but could not of course stick to the traditional peacock colours, well it would not have matched the theme, but I think it works.  Have a lovely crafty day!

Julie -- Reds, Oranges, &/or Browns -- the colors of Autumn in Wisconsin.  While on a car trip this past weekend, I saw fields of sunflowers past their prime.  They were the inspiration for today's flip card.  The sunflower image, colored with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor pencils,  is from the Sundae of Seasons CD (Halloween).  The sentiment tag and designer paper is from the Winston Deluxe Full Collection.  It can also be found on CD. 

Monica.-I really feel confortable with this colour combo. I love it!!! I made a diamond card to pop out this beautiful gingerbread angel in such gorgeous colours. I used one of my favorites collections, Picknix 2 Gingerbread Twist.

AnjieI have used the sweet Snow White image and coloured her with alcohol markers. The papers I have used are from the Wonderland CD, they are all matted onto brown card.  I made my own flower using the same papers and the foliage is a Tattered Lace die. The bow is from the Octavia collection. More pics on my blog.
Aunty Sue- For my card this week I have used more of the oranges and browns with touches of red in my ribbon. Of course I have used our lovely little Fairy Serenity from Serenity Wishes available in the shop HERE as a download. Papers are from this collection too. More details on my blog

Tanya...Hello folks.  I love red orange and brown combo and so instead of just using one of the colours I've used all of them and have used one of the new Colour Therapy sheets from collection two available as a CD here and a Download here and as a bundle of three different designs here.  I've also done a bit of Zentangle as well.  More photos and details on my blog. 
Wendy - Reds, oranges & browns say autumn to me, which here in the UK means rain! And what better image than Twiggy & Toots rainy days. You can get the digi on its own here or as part of the Twiggy & Toots collection, here. The birdhouse card template I've used is also on the collection.
Audrey took the perimeters of this challenge quite literally on all parts of my card and coloring.  I chose the image Octavia Moonfly Wistful, which is available as a single image (both black and white and colored versions are included) or you can get her as part of Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Digital Craft Bundle, which is where I got my image.    I also found my sentiment in the Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Digital Craft Bundle.  The kraft paper with the mushrooms and ladybugs is from Winston Deluxe Full Collection, the orange striped paper is from Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 2 and the red paper is from Work and Play Volume 1 Collection, found in the boy bodybuilder section.  Mushroom and pumpkin embellies are from Autumn/Fall Digis Colored Bundle.
Emma - I have make something really different for me, I have up cycled a frame that i brought a while ago. I have coloured up one of Nicky's new colouring pages from the Colour Therapy Adult Colouring books that can be found Here & Here. I have added a lovely quote that i found in the Twiggy & Toots collection that can be found Here.
Lynda: For this weeks challenge I used the beautiful Dollie Daydream Goes East collection.It's available as download bundle or on a CD.  The paper,embellishments and flowers are all from this bundle.Have Fun xxx
