Gail - For this weeks challenge, I got messy with paints and created a little canvas using images and a sentiment from the Summertime collection, available as a fabulous bundle with co-ordinating stamp set.
Lori - For my card this week, I chose to go with some whimsical, fun images from the Picnix 2 Gingerbread Twist Collection and printed off a "few" cute images to fussy cut out and add to my card - it's always so fun to create with these products!!...

Fikithis week I made card using images from Rose budd collectionI used heart stamps to make background, then with blending tool  I apply ink to get light red color on paper.

Tanya  - So for this week's challenge I've decorated a bag for my adult colouring books using transfer paper and the alphabet, butterflies and unicorn from the Octavia Moonfly Collection and coloured with fabric markers.  Full details on my blog.
Jane S - Well as it's October I have gone all 'Halloweeny' and made a card using 3 of Nikky's fab images, all of  WITCH (!) can be found  here along with lots of other spooky goodies too!  I have also used the fabulous new Polkadoodles Elegant Lamplight and Gate dies!!  Spookalicious!! :) 
Julie - I just wanted to make one more summery card, so I have used 2 images from the lovely Meribelle Mermaid, coloured with my trusty Copics.
Monica.-For this challenge, I made a Christmas "go round" card full of gingerbread guys. Papers, precoloured digital images, embellishments and sentiment were taken from the adorable collection Picknix 2 Gingerbread Twist. For detailed photos take a look in my blog.
