So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  Welcome to Marja who is joining us as a Guest Designer for 3 months!  We say goodbye and thank you to Vannessa one of our current Guest Designers!

Ruth:  I got to use this cute Heart Balloon digi and coloured it with Promarkers plus some glitter glue on the balloon.  The papers are from Funky Hand - Just For Jen download and are no longer available; I've had these in my stash for a few years and I'm really trying to use up what I have!

Billie A here with my card using the fun image "heart balloon girl".. I created the clouds and ground with my template I created out of x-ray film. I then colored the image with copics. I added some dots to her cute dress with a white gel pen. I added some wink of Stella to the balloon and some bling to the flower centers in her hair.  The sentiment is from Simon says.  I used My favorite things stitch die and layered this on an embossed pink card stock.

Hello again, It's Jackie here with a card made with the gorgeous image by Lemon Shortbread called Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella and I coloured her with markers and pencils. I used some Graphic 45 Dps! You can see more details here.

Hello, Sherry here: I used the adorable 'Heart Balloon Girl' by Lemon Shortbread.

I printed the heart balloon twice and colored the images with colored pencils.Then cut out the girl with a frame die and fussy cut the extra heart balloon out. Put mounting tape on the back of the balloon and placed it over the original heart balloon. Cut out small balloon hearts on the background patterned paper, used the same die to cut out on another patterned paper to fill in the hearts. Placed a piece of the same patterned paper behind the image. Then made a bow with twine and glued it beneath the flower.

Hello Again, Sherry here: I used the adorable 'Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella' by Lemon Shortbread. I colored the image with colored pencils. Cut it out and inked around it with distress oxide. Then used a die to cut out a design on a piece of patterned paper.

Hello from Margaret I coloured Lemon Shortbread digi stamp Rainy Days girl with Umbrella with chalks, markers and gel pen.  Layered onto papers from We are 3 April Showers paper collection
added sentiment from We are 3 Spring Sentiment set

Hello. This is Kym here. For my "get well soon" card I have used the Lemon Shortbread image called "Rainy Days". I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and highlighted all the water drops with my Sakura Stardust Clear Pen. You can see more details of my card here.  The Promarkers that I have used are: 
Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Raw Sienna and Cocoa
Umbrella/coat/boots - Buttercup, Lemon, Yellow and Ice Grey 2.
Ground - Putty and Pastel Beige.

Silke here: First I wrapped a design paper with a ribbon before it was attached to the card. Now I place a yellow rectangle on it. For this card I chose the image Heart ballon girl from Lemon Shortbread, colored it with Copics and then I positioned it on the card.  The punched sentiment was attached beside the girl and afterwards several hearts in different sizes were distributed on the map.

Hello Marja here. I used the digi Rainy days girl with umbrella from Lemon Shortbread for this card. I colored her with my colored pencils.

Hi, Jolanda here. I have used Heart Balloon Girl, an image from Lemonshortbread.
I coloured the image with Copic markers. The card from Studio Light, the little dots are the leftovers from holes of the pink cards, I used white/pink twine in it. The little balloons on both sides are stamped with Memento ink.

Hello everyone. Vannessa here with my version of Heart Balloon Girl from Lemon Shortbread. I used Copic Markers to colour the scene and added some pretty flowers and gems to pull all the colours of her outfit together.

Margo here with this weeks card using Rainy Days Girl With Umbrella by Lemon Shortbread Digital stamps.   I have used my Copic Markers to colour her up and gave some rainy accents with my white gel pen.  The card base is made with a Dutch Doobadoo shape stencil and I have used some older papers from my stash and flowers to complete the card.  I did not put a text on it so I can use it just to send to a friend for no specific reason.
