And a pinch and a punch for another new month...  yep.. just like that!!!

The new challenge for ARCHISCRAPS is to use....


 MOSAICS... on your creations somewhere...
I choose to try to create a back ground using a mosaic pattern, a bit harder than I thought!!  Little squares stuck on the back ground... how hard could it be!!!?? Well it was tricky!!!

My card..
so anyway it looks ok in real life!! hehe!! Maybe you would like to try doing a mosaic on something and you can pop it in the challenge... HERE!!!!

And the March challenge for KRAFT+ is another amazing one... (do I say that each month!!?? I feel so lucky to be on the Design Team and see what  challenges are coming up... ) And it is...

To use some DENIM on your creation... and of course it must be created on Kraft...  Do yourself a favour  AND POP OVER AND CHECK OUT ALL THE INSPIRATION ON THE BLOG!!!

 And what did I create? Well i might be showing my age, but my first thought was Denim and Lace.. A song from 1984!!! Sang by Marty Rhone...... so I had to use some lace... and some denim... and I choose a photo of my Hubby and our youngest so I could have a masculine and feminine influence on my layout...

some closer views.
 Denim makes great banners!! And I found denim flowers in my stash!!!
I love this quote... and some cogs for the blokey feel!!

Someone Special..
And some lace...  one of my fav photos from years ago...
I hope you have been inspired to have a go at this Denim Challenge, it really was a lot of fun!!

Thanks for dropping on by..  The days are sure flying .. here we are into March already...  that means autumn for us.. so looking forward to cooler days and nights!!
Thanks so much for the lovely comments you leave me ..
Have a great day!!
