Rebecca - I have printed these gorgeous images to make a Valentine's Card. I matt and layered my card with red and embossed card. I cut out the various elements. I attached striped ribbon down my card then added squares of black and teal card. I inked all the edges of my elements before adding them to my card. I also added a printed personlised sentiment



Monica - For this romance challenge, I wanted to tell you a love story. To achieve that I used almost all the characters from Work & Play 9.-Love & Kisses. The beautiful backgrounds are from an old Polkadoodles collection, "Boundless Love".


Jane P-  Love is in the air at PD.  For this weeks creation I decided to use the Rose Budd Collection.  I also used other yummy products from the PD store.  Head over to my blog for all the details.


Jane S - I'm saying it with a basket of flowers this week and have used some of the awesome Polkadoodles Dies and paper from the stunning Belle Papillon Collection.

Julie - What is more romantic than a Wedding?  My Brother is tying the knot this Summer, so I have taken the opportunity to make a Wedding card from him and his Bride.  Image is from Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses.  My main image is coloured with Copics.

Anjie - When I heard this challenge I immediately thought of using the Lily Love Bug collection, and a wooden heart I got in the sales last year. So here is my make.

Jane P -For my first card of the New Year I decided to use Winnie in Winterland Big Kahuna digital download collection.  I also could not resists incorporating some of the wonderful dies Super Sprigs and the Ribbon/Gift frames & Corners.  What else would you wish for on a cold winter day!

Jane P- For my make this week I decided to go with Winnie in Winterland Big Kahuna Collection to make a 5x5 card this week.  Also used the Flowers 2 dies.  Distressed the edges, layered the paper and used the dies to cut the flower embellishments from the collection.

Tanya  - This week's make uses elements from the Winnie in Winterland Design Sheet Number 4. I have hidden the tag inside the front of the card under a layer of snowy acetate by cutting out the middle of the background paper from the design sheet.  Finished off with glitter and some red and white twine.  The scrabble letters like last week's make have been recolourised using Craft Artist and you can get them here.  More photos on my blog.

Jane P -This week I decided to return to the Winnie in Wonderland Collection.  The embellishments in this collection has wonderful tags for the challenge this week.  Having to keep things on the simple side since many of my things are set up in my craft room in the new house.

LoriFor my card this week, I printed out the pre-colored North Pole image from the Winnie Winterland collection. I wrapped the main image panel in some yummy red/white twine and added a button :) The tag and sentiment are from the Baked With Love collection - fit the bill perfectly! It is popped up with foam dots and I added a few sparkly gems to finish the card off...wa-laaa!
