Congratulations guys. Please contact Steph on for your prize details and badges.
Our sponsors this week are :

They will be generously be giving our winner and runner ups a digi prize from their store.
For inspiration, Our Design Team girls have been hard at work again and here are their creations!

Jacqui H: I just love minis, they are probably the funnest cars to drive ever in my opinion. So when I got the KanBan Haynes Manual sheets and the Papermania Vintage car stamp set this card had already made itself. All I added was a page out of an old road atlas for the backing sheet and Bob's you're Aunty! One A5 card ready to go!

Helen: I love red sports cars!  Sandy and I bought a little MG Midget once, and he went to pick it up from Liverpool and then drove it all the way home to our old house in Ross-on-Wye ... happy days :). 
For this card, I've used Teen Angst background paper and an embossed arrow from We R Memory Keepers, a sports car decoupage image from my stash, and a metal embellishment.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz

Jacqui: I used an image from our Fab sponsor Kenny K, love these images. I used cardstock from my stash and the checked dp is free with the current issue of Simply Homemade magazine. I also used a Martha Stewart Edge Punch, and coloured her with my trusty old Promarkers.

Steph: I used card from my own stash and attached polka dot paper to Rainbow Mirr board. Then I used the "Biker Chick" digi by our sponsor Kenny K,  coloured with Promarkers and mounted to Rainbow Mirr board. I wrapped ribbon round the backing card and tied to a neat bow. I added a little quote to Rainbow Mirr board to finish off.

Shelby:  I'm super excited to be joining the fantastic other DTs of Glitter Geeks:) I wanted to say the other Gleeks, but then someone might think I could sing and dance. I'm incredibly honored to have been invited and hopefully I don't disappoint. I was stoked that Kenny K was sponsoring this challenge. His images are fun and quite creative. I chose his Spy Chick digi to ink up with my copics though there are a lot of his images that would've worked wonderfully with this challenge! I used TCP Girlfriend Phrases paper which I thought fit the attitude of the spy chick, and I love the color combo of pink and black. Good luck and have fun.

Josie: This week I used a Kenny K digi! Kenny K's is the first ever digi's I bought. I always swore I would never go digi! And although I will never go away from rubber stamping, I have a new found love of digis. You must check them out, they are such fun images and great to colour! I used this image for a friend's little lad, and I coloured with pro markers. I used basic grey paper and took the colour inspiration from that. Then backed with lime green glitter paper and American crafts lime green chipboard letters!
