Bloom Where You're Planted

     It's the 1st of March and we're starting a new challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  As always, our theme is "Anything Goes with a Critter" and that means anything 4 legged, 2 legged, 6 or 8 (or more) legged; animal, bug, fish, bird, whether real or fantasy, as long as it's some kind of creature and you feature it on your project, it's eligible.

     Our sponsor this month is Limited Runs and they have such a wide range of fun and funny images.  Check them out.

     I'm celebrating spring and I fell in love with this cute little bird, gardening in a pot.


     I colored with a combination of ProMarkers and colored pencils.  I used dies from Sizzix to cut the image and the dp frame.  I used glittered washi tape as though it was ribbon and added a tiny, hand-sewn, sheer ribbon bow, then adhered the sentiment.

     Challenges:
Allsorts (bird, bloom)
Colour Crazy
Crafting from the Heart
Crafty Friends
Cut It Up
Jo's Scrap Shack
Pile It On
Send a Smile 4 Kids
Simon Says Stamp & Show

     Remember, our challenge runs all month but it now closes on the 25th of each month.  That gives time for the DT to each choose their favorite entry for the month and we publish all of those on the 1st of the following month, along with the random winner, and the new challenge.  Hope to see you playing along with us. And Thank You, Limited Runs, for sponsoring us.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
