First Saturday


The first Saturday of the month means a new challenge at Crafty Calendar and this month it was my turn to choose the theme for August which is Hot Colours - well we still could get some hot weather don't you think?  I have used one of Pollycraft's Sonny Honeycloud images, and coloured her with Promarkers, the backing papers are a mix of different maufacturers - Papermania, DCWV and Basic Grey I think - I wanted to get a good hot mix! The fabric flowers are from MeiFlower and the sentiment was a free one, also from Papermania.

Entering this in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Colour
Craft Us Crazy - Anything goes in August
Freshly Brewed - Hot images and/or colours
Kelley Kid's - Anything goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Watermelons (the fruit or the colour)
The Craft Garden - Bold, bright & loud
Fabulous Friday - Color in an image
Inspire Me Fridays - Always anything goes
Phindy’s Place - Anything goes
Raise The Bar - Anything goes

Hi Jenni! This card is beautiful! I love the combination of patterned DP that you chose to use! The tab in the right corner is such a nice touch! I love that idea! The textured yarn is a really nice touch also! Thank you for joining us for our Freshly Brewed "HOT" month long challenge!
Hugs, Sheryl
