Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week....
The DT's twist on the challenge theme is Summertime/Holidays....

Jacki Well we haven't had much of a summer here in the UK so this was a great distraction to the cold lol. I have gone for something completely different today and made a little Winnie in a bottle. Using image and embellishments all from the Starfish and sandcastles download
Ruth:  Who doesn't like a cold and fruity ice lolly?  Made using one of the images from Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles - easy to enlarge and I've added it to the card blank with foam pads for depth.  The hundreds and thousands have been added as seed beads from my stash and I've handwritten the tag sentiment.
Helen - Ooow that holiday time is here and what better way to celebrate than with some Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles. You can find the big kahuna collection right here at the store. I used My Craft Artist to merge some embellies and a digi that I then coloured with copic to make a little holiday time picture.

Norma, I always dream to be a mermaid,  I love to be in the beach and I can stay all day long there, so maybe I was in my other life, lol.  So thinking of that I made this card with the beautiful Mermaid dolphin that I colored with my Copic markers and add some embellishments that I have in my stash.
Carol For todays make I used Sea Horse from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection, and coloured it in with my copics. I used a background paper and sentiment from the same collection.
Lisa - For my make I have gone for a different take on Summertime! I love my garden and it's full of pretty flowers at this time of year, so I used the Regal Peacock Stamp Set to create a Summer Garden Picture.
Shylaa I have used the design sheets from Horace & Boo collection for making this card. Created the background by distress inks and the sentiment is also from Horace & boo collections...

Jan Craftica ....Today for my Christmas journal page I used Oddella with wings ....I Loved Her! I colored her with Faber Castell Polychromos with the digi printed on a smooth paper. I added some snow embellishments as I decided to color her only with cold colors.

Now onto this week's fabulous inspiration from the Design Team...

Helen - We're still celebrating Christmas this week so I've used another of those fabulous templates on the Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun Collection to make this Christmas House card. I added two of the pre-coloured images of Twiggy and Toots and added a little copics to them to. Such fun and easy card to make you'll love them. Check them out at the store right here

Ruth:  I've made a cute Christmas card using one of the new clear stamps in store - Christmas Robin Cuddles.  Coloured with Aquamarkers and watercolour pencils.  I've then used random things I found in my stash to finish the card off (amazing what I find when I'm having a tidy up!)
Norma, This year I decide to prepare my December Daily in advance, that way I will have enough time to finish it during this year.  For the cover and for the dividers I use the designer sheets from Winnie winterland
Jan Craftica Using the Christmas Clear Stamps I made two cards...This card is called a Tri-fold each of the layers has some space so you can add something to it and as you open you discover something each time, I was able to add several images and sentiments to them!
Carol - Today I made a candy cane shaped tag and decorated it with papers, sentiment and Hollybobs Mistletoe character all from Work and Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs collection. Topped it off with a bright red bow.
Lisa - I have a very simple card using just the coloured Stamp of  Month for August which you can still order HERE...

Jacki  ...For my card today I have used the Nordic Pic n Mix 3  taking 3 of the baubles from the embellishment section and printing off straight t my card along with the sentiment (also from the collection). I then printed the baubles off again and glittered after cutting out and attached with 3D foam for a quick but stylish card....
 Shylaa...I Made this card from Floral foliage printable bundle from Horace & boo collection....

As always, great inspiration and makes from the team to inspire you this week.
