So let’s see what the design team have made for us….
Julie - I am not usually one to use multiple papers, so I decided to find a layout sketch for my card to help me and I am really pleased with the outcome. I have used Dandelion Days from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection coloured with Copics.
Nancy: For my card I used items from the Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles Collection.
I used the pre-coloured crab, the fun sentiment, and two papers! 
Isn't that fella cute?
Jacki : for my card I have made my usual 8x8 card with papers from the Winnie starfish and sandcastles collection I distressed and inked the edges with distress inks.  The image is from the Meribelle digi collection which I have coloured with polychromos, luminace and pablo pencils then I added the cutie creatures again from the Starfish and sandcastles collection.  I then made a couple of strips of washi from the papers too and added to the image
Monica.- The beauty of Lemonade Fizz Collection papers was just perfect for this challenge. The 
butterflies, rolled flowers and sentiment are also from that collection.
Fiki-on my card I use image Dancing queen and sentiment  from Winnie Fruit Punch Collection. Papers are from Starfish/Sandcastles collection.
Jane P. - This week I used elements and papers from the Winnie in Wonderland Big Kahuna CD.   Three different papers on the base card and a background paper from the Designer sheet collection.  I colored the Queen of Hearts with Copics.
AnjieI used an image and some papers from the fabulous Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection, and the sign post and beach ball stamps from the Oceania clear stamp set. I printed the palm trees onto watercolour card and coloured them with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. I then stamped the sign post onto two of the distressed wood papers and made a wooden effect sign post. I then stamped the ball onto different papers and paper pieced it to create a coloured ball.
Tanya - So I thought I'd make a start on my Christmas cards and so have used the wonderful Picknix 3 Nordic Winter Collection, just because I adore the vintage looking Father Christmas on the collection.  I've made a one layer card and then printed out some of the elements from the collection to add some dimension.  The inside is decorated too. More details on my blog.
Jane S – Hello! This week I have used some of the delicious papers from the DOLLIE DAYDREAM GOES EAST BUNDLE (one of my all-time faves) and scored and folded them to make some fans. I have also used one of the many gorgeous ladies that can be found in this collection too.  If you would like to purchase her individually she is available HERE. Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Gail - For this weeks challenge, I've used the delicious Winnie in Wonderland collection. Just love the colours Nikky used for this collection, Winnie in Wonderland is available as an instant download or on CD-ROM.
 Romina, It´s time a new challenge so I've made my card using the Dancing Queen digi,you can find here. She is so pretty.  I have coloured her with alcohol markers. This collection is amazing.  I've made by own background.  It was so much fun to create it.
