RED + February Challenge at By the Cute and Girly Challenge Blog

Morning folks!  Its the 1st day of February and here on the northside of Dublin the sun is shining and there is a hint of Spring in the air.  Its also time for a new challenge at By the Cute and Girly.  This month the challenge is hosted by the gorgeous Ayelet and she has chosen "Red and one other Colour" as the month's theme.  Now I know you're thinking Valetine's Day but it doesn't have to be a lovey dovey make - just dig out some red crafty bits and combine them with one other colour.  All types of crafts (Baking/Cardmaking/Scrapbooking/Jewellery/Tags/Knitting/Crochet etc, etc) are invited - you can get the full details here - and see all the DT's red + makes, especially Lisa's Gingerbread Couple  and how they spent Valentine's Day.

Great prizes on offer from
                                      Simon Says Stamp
                                      Joanna Sheen
                                      Little Snippets
                                      Stamp Fairy.com

I choose red + chocolate brown for my makes.  The card uses a digi image from the StampFairy:  "Love"  paper is by Bo Bunny.

An altered biscuit tin left over after Christmas.  I used Websters Pages Garden Gala,the most beautiful papers I've ever come across, available  from here, and my own Little Snippets butterflies.  I made up some red net roses, added some pearly swirls from Prima  and finally some trimmings I inherited from my mother (a great woman for altering things or "getting at something" as she called it).  I punched two holes in the top of the tin and strung beads on wire through them for a handle.

 Have a great day and cheer yourselves up with a touch of red!
