The Squirrel and the Fox #30 - Horses, Hats or Flowers.

This weekend in Oz it's the Melbourne Cup, their equivalent of the Grand National, and there are big celebrations! That's the reason for this fortnight's theme of Horses, Hats or Flowers

Our sponsor is the wonderful http://www.makeitcrafty.com/">
Make It Crafty - if you haven't visited them yet, do go along, there are fabulous digis, colouring tutorials and much more!I already had this lovely image which is http://www.makeitcrafty.com/summer-dreams-digi-stamp.html">Summer Dreams

I coloured her with Speccies, but I've lost my list I'm afraid. :( Her hatband has dots of orange stickles on it to match the bow, made with ribbon from my stash. I used a corner punch to round two of the corners of the image. The sentiment stamp is by Woodware.

The bunting was paper-pieced, the stamp is by Molly Blooms and was a magazine freebie. The flourish is a Die-namics die, the pearls are from stash. I tinted a white Wild Orchid rose with my pens to match the dress.

The papers were free with 'Quick Cards' magazine.

The fab sketch is from http://tuesdaymorningsketches.blogspot.co.uk/">Tuesday Morning Sketches
and I'm entering this card into their challenge.
Now please gallop across to http://thesquirrelandthefox.blogspot.co.uk/">The Squirrel and the Fox
and have a look at my teamies' gorgeous creations, and have a go. You could even include all 3 of the theme - go on, I dare you!!!
Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Hi Mags. I have recently joined the Dream Valley team and have at last found the time time to say hello. I have had family health concerns which meant I have not had the time to do much visiting.
You have some gorgeous cards and have enjoyed my visit. Looking forward to working with you on future challenges.
Hugs Sharon.x
