Well, here we are…it’s the first of March! A very happy St David's day to any of you of Welsh origin! It was so nice to see all the daffodils starting to break bud in the village this morning & what perfect timing they have!!
So..first off I have to point you in the direction of the March kit over at Dixie Pieces. Called ‘Dot-A-Licious’ it is just fabulous! It includes so many gorgeous items…lots of polka dots as the name suggests, but also buttons, ribbons, flowers, bingo cards…& more! Pop on over to Dixie Pieces to check out the content details in full!
I have so enjoyed working with it & I suggest that if you want to order, you do so pronto! February’s kit sold out very quickly & I have a feeling that this one will fly too!!
So what did I do with it?
My boys in 2004…learning circus skills at a school workshop! I used all four of the green check vinyl flowers in this one, inking & curling the edges…I also loved the red check semi transparent sticky tape I used for the name banners!
For the first used the shrink plastic from the kit to make flowers by stamping & then colouring in with ‘Whispers’ pens, before cutting them out & popping them in the oven…great fun!!!
I drew & cut the basket from the gutted piece of Kraft CS & the word ‘basket’ was from one of the flash-cards in the kit. The organza ribbon lends itself to pleating & bow tying beautifully!
The second card involved a bit of fussy cutting & stitching from one of the papers.
I’ll be using this one as the example for one of my challenges! The theme for March’s challenges is ‘Green’ & they will be posted daily from now until the 10th March & you will have until 31st March to complete as many as you’d like! Details of the prize to follow shortly!!
You can check out the Design Team Gallery for the ‘Dot-A-Licious’ kit HERE! It amazes me that we were all working with the same items & yet there is such a variety of work on display!!
That’s all for now, but I’ll be back soon with details of another challenge & what the Postie brought me this morning!! Thanks for dropping by & I’ll ‘see’ you then!! : )
