Colourful Calico


Hello again - and welcome to the second of three (yup, three, count'em) posts today.  

If you're looking for the Artistic Stamper March Challenge, you'll find that one here.  And my offering for the new Our Creative Corner challenge will be coming up later this morning (Update - it's here now!).

This middle post is just a quick sneak peek for my latest project over at Calico Crafts.  Seeing as my first trio of projects for Calico have all been firmly planted in "the Neutral Zone", I thought it was time to splash out into a bit of colour...

It would be lovely if you had time to pop over for a closer look - in between all the other options available at Words and Pictures today.

Not forgetting this exciting news...  talk about March coming in like a lion!


It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
From Tom Sawyer, Detective by Mark Twain

Definitely a piece to cheer any dull day-we have fog so it cheered mine :)

Love the stamps you used and rustic edge to the piece. Also the wood at the top and the bottom.
