Before we get on to seeing what the Design Team have been up to, let's see what's in the store.

I expect you are all busy bees getting ready for Halloween, well there are some fabulous digi's
and download collections to be had.  No hanging about for that pesky postman either.

Check at the Polkadoodles bundles

Now let's get on with the show :-)

Asha - Instead of using die cuts to frame or mat, I've decided to create a scene with die cut clouds and grass with papers from W&P 10 Country Life. The star of the card is a sweet little cow from W&P 10 Country Life. I coloured her with my pencils, adhered a ticket tag the CD, inked the edges and my CAS card is done.


Scatty Jan - I have used the amazing Frosted Winter collection using the lovely Artic Wandering Star Octavia also available as a digi here and also the Ice Palace which is available here. I coloured up using Graph'It Markers and also using the silver shake it marker, I cut some flowers from the collection and coloured them up to match. I cut around the bauble using a die.


Jackie - I have been busy colouring up some of the great digis on Work and Play 5- Festive Hollybobs. This one is Hollybobs Skating Fun. The paper, sentiment and bow are also from this collection. I have used a Sizzlits die set for the snowflakes. Details on my blog.


Karon - I have made an easel card this week.  Using a pre-coloured digi with frame from the fabulous Octavia Frosted Winter collection.  She is also available as a black and white image for you to download and colour HERE.  I add some glitter and used my oval dies, to cut around the frames and sentiment.  Everything you see is from this fabulous collection.



Jenny - I have used a large die this week to cut the window on my card. I have used craft card and one of the pre-coloured digi's from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection. I wanted it to look like you were looking out onto a snowy scene, although I've used the coloured image you can get her on her own as a digi download here.


Jessie - I love tucking small die cuts and things in as layers on my cards and the banner on this is a great example of that! I used the Octavia Big Kahunna bundle for this card. the paper and the image all come from that collection! This image is so worth all the time put into colouring it! 


Ria - hmm what a horror to having to add diecuts... Who loves diecuts?? whahahah me of course so here is my card I used the scarecrow from the Autumn/Fall digistamp collection and coloured him with pencils and did his background in watercolours. The papers and sentiment are from the Serenity Collection... Dies are all from Tattered Lace Dies...


Aunty Sue - Wow how do I follow all this inspiration well hopefully this wont scare you away. I have used the Autumn/Fall Digi stamps with this brilliant Guy doesn't he look like he is ready for another drink and also the papers are from the Paper Heaven download 1 and the house and sentiment is from the sentiments pack all available from the shop HERE. My Dies are the corner die and the Railing in front of the house. The image has been coloured with my Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils. I do hope that he hasn't scared you off from joining us this week.



Wendy - For this weeks card, I've used a sentiment from the Picnix 3 Collection as the main focus and re-coloured in using Craft Artist. The Poinsettia's are also from the same collection. The die is a Tonic verso die, 'Birthday Wishes'.
