So let’s see what the design team have made for us.
We're kicking off the week with a fab tutorial from Fiona...

Fiona - This week I have been asked to do a tutorial for the challenge I have used for my make a pre-coloured design sheet from the Stick and bones Collection design Sheet 2  and have made a box card.
First of all I made a box from a template.
I then filled the box with some shredded green paper. I then printed off a few copies of the design sheets. Add backing paper to the front and side added the toppers and then started adding the bones embellishments and sentiments. More details of the tutorial can be found on my blog. Here is the finished make.
Anjie - Once again I've used the fab Sticks and Bones collection for my make. I've coloured the image with my pens and fussy cut some embellies and used 2 papers from the collection on this card. I printed one of the papers onto card as I wanted to use some of the elements on it for embellies so they tiny torties are from the paper as are the tiny word arts. I just LOVE the trees on this collection, I would love to sit under one reading a good book.
Julie - I am having a great time using the new Polkadoodles Sticks & Bones Collection, so I used it again today to make a card for my BFF.  My 'Green' themed card uses Walk the Dinosaur (colored with Copic markers), papers, and a pre-colored sentiment from the Sticks & Bones Collection.  It's available in CD or Digital Download.
Jane – Hello!  My green card features the gorgeous ROSE BUDD COLLECTION where you will find all the elements I have used (well apart from the ribbon).  The very elegant young lady, MISS CHARLOTTE, is also available separately as a clear stamp if you wish. This gorgeous, Regency inspired bundle is currently on offer in the Create and Craft Magazine as a CD-Rom so all of you C&C members go check it out!!  Have a happy crafty day! xxx
Monica- In my country, I have green and nature surrounded me 12 months a year, so I´m very familiar with it. For my make I used one of my favorites Polkadoodles collection "Cherryblossom Lane".
Audrey chose to alter a book binder for her coloring combo pages.   I used Adult Coloring Pages Bundle Alphabet 1.  I used GIMP to make my cover page title and then colored n all the letters and nature elements with my Copics.  I added bows from Work and Play 9 Love and Kisses Download Collection  and air brushed butterfly wooden embellies with my Copics and then added to the bows.
Aunty Sue - Hi for this Green/Nature challenge I have have gone with the colour and our Work and Play Country Life collection available not only as a Cd but as a download so you can play straight away. You can find it in the shop  CD here &  Download here the sentiment is from  Feel the Music Collection available Here
Gail - . I really love using beautiful fonts & quotes, I found the perfect quote and image on the Picknix In The Garden bundle. The Picknix In The Garden bundles is available as a digital download here, however, for the best value and more awesome images there's the Picknix 1 Bundle available, which has 3 yummy collections in one bundle including In The Garden as a digital download here or on CD-Rom here. I was in an inky and messy mood when I started the challenge card, so I got the acrylic ink sprays out to create the background  but the fabulous quote and florals are from the Picknix In The Garden bundle.
Helen - I've used a digi, sentiment and one of the papers from The Serenity Collection together with a paper from the Lily Bug Love Collection.  I've combined the colour green and also the nature theme and have made a circular card for a change
Tanya  So for this week's challenge I've used one of the Colour Therapy Club pages to make a very large A3 sized card.  I've coloured the page with my Lyra Aqua pens and added touches of Wink of Stella Silver Glitter and a little bit of striped zentangle on the word LOVE and some white spots with a White Shake Graph It pen.  There's more detailed photos on my blog
