Well, that went fast!

February that is!

Time to move onto the next challenge for March


You know, our DT comes from many different parts of the world, and our entrants in the various challenges from even more places.  I am constantly excited to find out that the latest entrant comes from a country that I have not (yet) visited! Each time I learn something new about the country and/or the people. And the main thing I have learned is that we are all just people, enjoying the same things and sharing the same ideas and hopes and dreams. 

So, when I was putting together the list of themes for 2015, I came up with this one!

Harmony or/and Peace ­

There are many symbols of harmony or peace with the dove being probably one of the most recognizable. 

You can however, create anything around the theme of Harmony and/or Peace.

The twist is to incorporate flight into your article/piece/creation

This is the prize for the winner

 1 New Spellbinders die


Firstly, we have a Guest Designer, Lou Lou
she has created for us an Art Journal Page


Isn't that a great piece of journaling!

The DT have also been very creative and come up with things I would never have thought of using this theme/twist. Remember, please do not use stamps.

Remember we will be announcing the winners for February next week and 
NO STAMPS PLEASE

Short month, February.....

Hello Peeps!
Some advise for you......

I love Facebook for finding all these!

As the heading says, February is a short month, even in a leap year - and this one is not a leap year.
I have a BIL whose birthday is on the 29th February; he turned 18 the same year as his eldest Granddaughter
However, it makes life a bit fraught decided if it is celebrated on the 28th or the 1st of March, even if you remain younger than your cohort and get younger than them each year

You have less than a week to enter the latest challenge here
February Challenge #44 National Symbols

There are many formal and informal national symbols - you do not have to be limited too much - if you can justify your choice in your blog, go for it!

The twist is to use your country's flag colours in your creation
Just don't use stamps!

The Prize is this collection of new material (value approx $20 Aus) 



So you want some more inspiration? OK - these might help!

Thank you too to the other entrants - for having a go and accepting our challenge. We hope to see you all back again and again!

For instance, the February challenge is up and it is

February Challenge #44 National Symbols

Incorporate a national symbol or iconic image from your country into your work - something a stranger to your land would immediately recognise as being of your place. For example, the White House is symbolic of the USA, and the Buck House soldiers are definitely from the UK, and a sprig of heather is Scottish and the 4 leaf clover is Irish, while the leek is Welsh! Apparently the white eagle is a symbol of Poland but I had to look that one up!

The twist is to use the colours from your country's flag on your project somewhere
Note too, that it does not have to be a card - you can make any paper project as long as you don't use a stamp of any kind on it (excluding postage stamps - you can use them!)

Some more inspiration for you today


How vibrant are those colours!

Wattle is on our coat of arms

  Yes, two more cards but you don not have to create only cards - so, get thinking, get creating and go HERE to link your work! We are looking forward to seeing what you can create.
