Irre:  I have really wanted to make something with Weirdre cath your own rainbow for some time. So for this month, I've made a card with her. I used two of my favorite colors for this, purple and pink. For the background papers, I used stencils and one of the collage stamps. Then like always, I wanted to add some more texture, and for that, I used sewing thread and flowerpot stones. Check out my blog for a step-by-step, including the coloring of Weirdre.

Susie - This time, my DT piece is a tag folder. I've gone for my beloved crazy bright florals again - but with a difference! When is a rose not a rose? When it's a carnation! 
I've used just three sets of stamps to create the entire folder, including the tags! You can view the full tutorial on my blog.

Hazel - For this project I created a mixed media birthday card using Flowers/Butterflies and Hanging Garden clear stamp sets and coloured them with Archival inks. The background was created using gesso with Sweethearts Stencil. The backing paper is from Sugar Scrumptious and I aged it with Distress Ink. The sentiment is from All About the Girls.
Products used:

Holly - The tag I have created this month was created using distress inks for the background along with modeling paste and tulle. The stamps you can see are Piggy 1 Digital stamp and Beautiful Birdhouse 3 Digital stamp. I used colouring pencils to colour them and then added some ribbon to finish.
I hope you enjoy this happy piggy themed tag, if you would like to know more, full details and a tutorial video can be found on my blog.
