So lets see what our Design Team have made this week....
Andrea - I have used the love Octavia Moonfly Kit to make my card our theme is Summer Colours.
I have made a second card for our Theme Summer Colours this week. My card is a 3 fold card and it is attached to a backing piece of card-stock. I have used a sweet Winnie Sugar Sparkle image...

Anjie - Ok, so I've actually done two makes. But what says summer more than strawberries
and cream, and cherries and cocktails? My cards are both cream blanks
and the back is mounted onto 3D foam to make it stand out.
I've used a design sheet from the ever so cute Winnie Fruit Punch collection. And there is so much on those sheets I got 2 cards out of just one of them!

Yvonne - I made a lovely easel card and I decided to play with Winnie Fruit Punch Collection which you can see here.  The papers are from 'Winnie Sugar Sprinkles' which you can find here. I used a topper from the 'Fruit Punch' Collection which you can find here.
Katrina~ Summer colors are all over the beautiful Winnie Fruit Punch Bundle!  This is Dandelion Days Winnie copic colored in bright yellows!  Visit me at my blog to see how I created the card base using the Polkadoodles Science/Geeks SVG Flowers!

Julie - I have created a little beach scene in shades of Pink, Orange and Yellow, using an image from the fabulous Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles.

Hester - Summer colors and I could not choose color so I got rainbow colors.
I made a shake card and used Ula be a Unicorn PaperOctavia Moonfly 

Jane P.- Summer colors for me are yellow and oranges....the color of the sun, which has been absent from the sky lately.  For this weeks make I used Starfish & Sandcastle Collection and colored up Winnie Ice Cream Days.
Jane S - This pair of cheeky monkeys can be found as part of the new Too Cute range along with the sentiments I have used. I digitally added one of the monkeys onto a cherry covered paper that can be found in the Summertime collection and sat the other on a pile of bananas.  These were cropped, enlarged then fussy cut from that image.
Monica.-I can´t think of Summer without the Ocean´s colour palette. For my card I used papers, borders, embellishments and sentiment from Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles and the focus image is Meribelle Hello Sailor.
Melissa - When I think of Summer I always think of my kids outside in the sunshine.  So for today's card I have used 'Hang in there little Monkey' from the new Too Cute Range.
Julia - For my summer colours make I have teamed a gorgeous Mirabelle Hello Sailor with some fabby papers & embellies from the Winnie Sandcastles and Starfish collection. Full details on my blog.
Dawn - When I think of summer I think of butterflies , bees and lots of green and yellows.  I've used a design sheet from the ever so cute Winnie Fruit Punch collection. 
Željka-I love summer,it's my favorite time of the year,and lot's of my happy moments are happened at summer...love those precious moments...so I use adorable WINNIE STEPPING STONES from brand new WINNIE SPECIAL MOMENTS COLLECTION

Julia For my make this week I have used the gorgeous new Horace & Boo collection. The Balls of wool are an Embellishment in the big Kahuna kit. I have used a gel medium and layered embroidery thread over it to create the real texture of wool, then added some buttons and a few trusty paint splatters....
Julie - This was a tricky challenge for me, as I have a bit of a button Phobia!!, so as a compromise, I cut a button border on my Cameo to frame sweet Fairy Princess Helga....

So lets see what our Design Team have made this week....
Andrea: Here is my card for our Challenge "Thinking about Summer"  I have made a folded card with a front window.  The images I used are from the beautiful Twiggy -  Toot - Owl Digital Sheets 


Monica - Thinking about Summer, I made an envelope card that is full of dimension, but folds flat for posting. I loved to see Winnie and Rocco relaxing by the sun. I used Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles Collection...

Yvonne - I instantly knew what collection I wanted to play with this week and I went straight to 'Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles' and opted to use a design sheet for this challenge.  I opted to use Rocco and design sheet 8 - which you can find here.
Julia - I also had a play with Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles .. I also borrowed the film reel from Winnie Fruit Punch, Using Serif I have merged lots of the Starfish and Sandcastle images into the film reel ( you can get a closer look on my blog) .. In my head I was almost trying to make this look like a scrapbook page Winnie would have made...
Katrina ~ Thinking about summer over here means getting horses ready to show and onto the fairgrounds.  So, that made this week the perfect time to share this layout of my grand-girl and our miniature horse Charlie!  I chose to color up Horse Riding Digital Stamp (which can also be found in the Work and Play 6 Collection), make flowers from the Work and Play 12 (Science/Geek, etc), and use Quotes, Papers and Ephemera from Winnie in Wonderland.  More info and pics on my blog...
Hester - When I think of summer I think of sun and sea. On holiday you can find me in the sea. When they wave on a bodyboard, or new hobby Suppen.
For my card I used VIPXXL EDITION Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles Craft From this collection I used Rocco Swimming with sharks, Lifebuoy, Anchor, Lighthouse, starfish,Seashells, and flip flops
The sentiment is you get with tthe VIPXXL edition...
Julie - Thinking of summer, I remember climbing trees and chasing butterflies, so Treetop fun from Winnie Fruit Punch was the perfect image to use, I have made a twisted easel card and coloured her with Copics.

Anjie - I've used the fabulous Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection. You can also buy this on it's on as a design sheet here.
Pauline - I used a super topper from the adorable new Horace & Boo collection to create my card.  The papers and sentiment are also from the collection - the only things I added from my stash are the buttons...
Melissa - I have used Helga Hippo, Say Hi for this weeks inspiration.  I have coloured Helga with Copic Markers...
Jane S - I have used one of the gorgeous new Ula images that you can find here and sat her in the scene panel from Design Sheet 11 contained in the Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles bundle.
Dawn - I have used the Treetop Fun from Winnie Fruit Punch Big Kahuna Bundle  for my Summer theme card.
Željka-Hello!!!For this week challenge I made a mix media with adorable new collection
