So let's get to today's inspiration...

Catrin - Hey everyone! For my inspIration card today i am using the digital image 'Melon and Donut Snacks' frorm the Noodle Panda Collection. an adorable image and definitely a picnic I want to go on! It has been coloured with Promarkers and added to some layered backing paper. I added a Rainbow Embelishment, some gems and a sentiment to complete.

Merja - On my card I used amazing Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles Float Away image and coloured it with alcohol markers. Then I just fussy cut it and added a sentiment with Hello Sunshine Clear Stamp Set.

Candace- For today's challenge project, the theme is Picnic/BBQ and use an animal. For this BBQ card, I used Bella Bear with Milkshake image, colored her up and made the milkshake look like lemonade. I also cut the crown off of Charlie Bear to add to Bella to match the pattern paper. The pattern papers are from Gnome Men BBQ and the sentiment is from Gnome Men's Greetings. Love using different images with pattern papers to make it my own!

Rachael - Hi everyone. We have a DT challenge each week set by Nikky but this week I also challenged myself to use some of the smaller ephemera images from the collections. These bottles are from the Gnome Motorcycle tattoo bundle and I used my graphics program to increase them in size to fit a 6x4 envelope. Printed them off then fussy cut around the images with two pieces of card. I scored the back piece and attached them together so the card could stand up. My father-in-law loved it as his father's day card! Think creatively about everything in the bundles not just the main image!

Jane – It’s a panda picnic and who wouldn’t enjoy a lovely bamboo burger washed down with a cool fizzy cup of bamboo juice...No? Well for QUARTER PANDA BURGER DRINK it’s a real treat. You can find so many more of these super cute pandas with papers and sentiments to match in the awesome NOODLE PANDA COLLECTION.

Martine - For this card I used a bunny named Love you this much . He ( or she) looked so summery with his (or her's) sunglasses on that i used it for an invitation for a Summer Barbeque ! And do you see those cute little paws on that background paper? It's also from Polkadoodles and is from this set : Paper Heaven 1 , Horace & Boo. (the heart paper comes also from that set). The sentiment, Hey you comes from Let's hang out...

Kim Stewart - For our Design Team project this week, we were given PICNIC/BBQ Using an Animal as our theme. I decided on Cutie Pututie Noodle the Panda, more specifically the Ice Cream Sundae digi which i coloured with my Copic Markers. I created an invitation for an all you can eat ICE CREAM Picnic Party. On this terribly hot day today, it just sounded like a wonderful event to be invited to. 😁 Lots and lots of ice cream to be had. I added coloured digi stamps from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles line and added decorative papers from the Gnome Men Cool Ice Cream Beach Set which just fit with the theme of my card perfectly

Shruti - I've created a side stepper fun fold card for BBQ/Picnic theme. Hope you all like it. To make this card I've used BBQ, Chef, Cook (Colour ) Bundle....

Melanie - Good morning crafters, for our Design Team challenge this week we were asked to create something using the theme BBQ and using an animal. Well I just couldn't wait to use Quarter Panda Burger and Drink digital image which I coloured using my Spectrum Noir markers. For my background I used the Gnome BBQ papers and to finish the card off I used the Rebel with an attitude easy strip sentiments. I can't wait to see what you all create. Happy Crafting! Mel x
