During February, we had the pleasure of having the very talented Alison Bomber join us as our Guest Designer and on behalf of the team, Jennie and I would like to say a big thank you to Alison, for all her hard work and for the stunning creations that she made and shared with us. This month, we have Jenny Marples joining us here on the blog and I'm sure you will all love what Jenny has to share in her first post tomorrow and throughout March.

If you do need any inspiration, then look no further than our Creative Team's stunning creations for this month's challenge.
I cut my tag in a strong cardboard and covered it with a slight coat of gesso. Then I stamped Family values on the top to make a background.All the things I glued on it come from my recycling stash (flower and ribbon from an old pair of jeans, lace from underwear, etc..).
The fabulous dress-maker is stamped on a kraft envelope.
Seeing as Easter is only around the corner, I thought it would be nice to bring some sunshine to this long winter and for my piece, I used a large size 10 tag and covered it with Distress Ink, before stamping the background with one of the stamps from the Borders A6 #2 plate and the Swirls Splats and Dots. I then added die cuts using the Easter Element Die and the Tattered Floral Die. I painted the chipboard bunny and his little bow with Adirondack Paint dabbers and the flowers are coloured using Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks. The Butterfly is die cut from Grungepaper and coloured with Shaded Lilac DI and then I stamped over the top with the Mini Polka Dot Background Stamp. To complete the tag, I dyed some seam binding using Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac Distress Stain.
We hope you will join in with this month's challenge and we're really looking forward to seeing your interpretation of our theme and all your amazing creations and artwork. Please, don't forget to add a comment when you post your entry.
I hope you all have a happy and very creative month.
See you soon...
