Jane – Hello! Now my cool blue card features the gorgeous RED RIDING HOOD whose red cloak is obviously in the wash as she has chosen to wear a blue one here!!  I have used papers and elements from the EDEN BIG KAHUNA BUNDLE and this is where you can also find the sentiment.  Have a happy crafty day! xxx
Monica- For this week challenge, I went back to my favorite crafting stuff and I made a gift box with a 3d flower and leaves using the gorgeous papers from Dollie Daydream Goes East Collection.
Fiona - For this weeks challenge Cool Blues I have used a image from the Work and Play 9 Love and Kisses download cd the image is called Bride and is also available as a digital stamp on its own.  The papers I have used are from Twiggy and Toots Festive fun cd ...
Tanya - For this week's challenge I've done some zentangling in blue pen on the black and white digi called Serenity Earthstar available on a single digi in black and white and also in black and white and colour on the full Download collection and a CD collection.  The papers and the sentiment are also from the collection and I've used Graph It Markers for the skin. 
Julie -- I used an digi from the Twiggy & Toots Collection, found here in CD and here in Digital Download.  Just the strawberry cupcake image can be found here. I colored the cupcake image using Copic markers.  The cool blue background paper is from the Frosted Winter Octavia Collection (CD or Download). Then, the fun begins.  To make your own rainbow ribbon, follow these easy instructions:  Gather your supplies.  This technique can be done with a varieties of white ribbons.  I've used either inks or alcohol markers.  For this ribbon I wanted a "soft" look, so I chose distress inks.
Alternating every inch or so, ink your ribbon.  I cut 13 inches of ribbon for this card.  Here I am, getting started on it.
Here's the completed striped, multicolored ribbon --
Here's the completed card, with it's rainbow ribbon. Hope you try this! 
Helen - I've gone for a winter theme for my card and have used a digi and papers from the 'Work and Play 4 - Festive Hollybobs download which is here on the website.
Aunty Sue - So for my card I have gone with the colour Blue as my main colour and used Work & Play 8-Feel the Music. Dj  which you can purchase as a single image or the full download HERE I have used papers from this collection and also the sentiments.
Lynda: This week I used one of my favorite collections 'Rose Budd' It's available on a CD or as a digital download.  The paper and embellishments are all included in this massive bundle. The digi can be bought separately, her name is Miss Rose and you can find her here. xx 
Gail - This week I choose Guitar Boy from the fabulous Work and Play 8 - Feel The Music Collection, which is available as a digital download here or on CD-Rom here.
Anjie - This was a wooden heart I bought from Matalan in the sale for 50p, I think I'm going to pop out now and see if they have anymore as it is quite a substantial amount of wood. I started the project by prinint some papers from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection and distressed them with ink before gluing them in place. I then added some faux stitching with a brown pen to keep in with the colour theme. I then coloured in the fab Oddella Heart image with my Graph'It Markers. More details and photos on my blog.

Audrey decided she was officially sick of winter despite not really having been in super cold weather yet!  Anyway, I went with an image that has more of a summer feel Milking Time with Kitten, which is also available on Work and Play Vol. 10 Country Life Full Download Collection.  I decided to make a pocket page this time around as I have seen them and think they are really cool.  I used 3 different word art from Work and Play Vol. 10 Embellies Download Bundle also available in Work and Play Vol. 10 Country Life Full Download Collection.  My papers are all from Winston Deluxe Full Collection.

Great makes from the DT I’m sure you will agree!
