So let's get to the inspiration for today's new Card Making & Paper Craft challenge...

Martine - Do you like flowers? I do! And Peonies are one of them.I enlarged this one a bit in the printer so i could make this large card. So i had many to color ! Lol. And that sentiment suits very well... ( Let's hang out 37 ). I used gorgeous cloudy paper with it from Paper Heaven 1- Horace & Boo .. See you all next time!

Kim Stewart - Hard to believe we've already dropped into August. I picked one of the Blooming Lovely flower bundles called Blooms 1. I printed out the black and white digi image 2 times and then cut apart sections of the flowers. I also cropped the image down to give me the flowers only in different sizes. The flower images were coloured with my Copic markers and then i added Glitter glue to them to really make the pink pop. I added extra foliage from the Springtime Smiles Cute Chicks bundle for some extra interest. My paper selection is from Winnie Sunshine Delights pack 1 .  Fnally, my sentiment I chose from the Perfect Peony bundle. Instagram: @lady_kashmir/

Catrin - Hi Everyone! For my Sunshine and Flowers inspired card I have used the 'Hearts &Flowers Butterfly clear stamp set 1 , set 2Rainbows - Stamp Soup 19 clear stamp set and Flowers and Things - Stamp Soup 27 to create this circular card. To begin, I distressed the backing buy adding distress ink colours to a glass mat, spritzzing with water and placing the card on top, pressing down lightly, pulling the card off and setting asside to dry. I used Scrap Card on the reminder ink left on the glassmat so not to waste, and once dried I stamped the flowers and fussy cut. For the butterfly I used vellum and heat embossed with WoW Bright White and fussy cut, I then used distress ink on the wings. once the backing paper was dry, and flattened, I added some stamped images from the set, placed all the flowers and the butterfly to complete. Happy Crafting!

Judy: My DT card for this week's challenge is "school" themed. I have used the Wanda Working Study Phone Printable as my focal image. She was colored with Castle Arts Soft Touch Pencils and fussy cut. Part of the sentiment was stamped with the Funky Alphabet A5 Stamp Set. I also stamped borders and numbers from the same set. The other part of the sentiment was printed using Wanda Printable Messages and QuotesI added a strip of patterned paper behind Wanda from the Wanda Printable Paper Set 3.
 Nunzia: It is so much fun to play with summer themes on these hot days, which is why I chose to color the cute Rocco Surf's Up. I fussy cut the stamp and glued it onto a combination of Just Lovely - Honeypie papers. Finally I printed the sentiment from Quotes Winnie-special-moments framed with a banner of Winnie-celebrations-1-banners and numbers bundle.

Pam - This adorable Panda in her 'Beach Inflatable Flamingo' is ready for the Hot Days of Summer! I've colored her up with my Copic markers and used Polkadoodles Starfish & Sandcastles papers along with the Sunshine from the Zodiac digital pack. She'll be catching the rays and chilling by the water!

Renske - I used the cute Lollipop Lady School Crossing Patrol/Security Guard digital stamp for my Back to School themed card. I coloured the digital stamp with my alcohol markers. For the girl's outfit, I chose a yellow jacket, white shirt and a blue cap with yellow accents. The floral-print skirt was decorated with yellow and blue flowers and I added subtle accents to enhance the overall look. The finishing touches included using glitter on the flowers and paper glaze on the plate. I set her in a scene with a road, pavement and trees in leaf. A lovely scene. Hope you like it. Happy crafting! My instagram:

Jane – These gorgeous pre-coloured flowers are from the WATERCOLOUR FLOWER STEM digi deal and simply copied, pasted and manipulated in Word to create a bouquet. The paper and sentiment are also from this amazing value collection.

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is Sunshine and Flowers, Bright Colors and no people images. I used the image Too Cute Hamster. For the background pattern paper, I used Spring into Easter - set 3 and used Posydoodles Square dies to cut out the paper. The sentiment is from Rebel with Attitude Easy Snip Message Strips- these are great!!!

Wow! Such fun projects & so many great ideas from the team this week - thanks so much for all your wonderful inspiration, ladies!
