Hats and Easter Bonnets at TioT

Hello and welcome to another challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this time we would love to see Hats and  'Easter Bonnets' on your creations.
For the month of March we have
as our Sponsor who are offering the monthly winner £10 to spend in their online store.

For my DT piece I have used an Inkylicious image, borrowed from my crafty friend Diane - its not an Easter Bonnet, but the advert does say Spring Wear!  The papers are Prima Botanical - a freebie from a magazine. The large flower is TH Tattered Floral die, this was stamped, inked and spritzed with Perfect Pearls.
The rest of the DT have some wonderful creations on show, so please pop over here and take a look.

I am entering this at:
  Cards and More - Lace & Pearls
  Celebrate the Occasion - Spring is in the Air (Spring Wear hat)
  Bunny Zoes - Girly
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Simon Says Stamp & Show - Shabby/Chic
  Vintage Stamping Challenge - Spring is in the Air

A rather late post from me, but have had a very busy day with DD looking for shoes, hairbands -(diamante of course) - and bridesmaids dresses, I'm absolutely shattered.  I hope to do some blog visiting this week, although I still feel as if I am playing 'catch up' all the time as I am still trying to organise the 'craft room'  This has to be done before Saturday - I'm off to GNP at Harrogate and you never know - I might just come back with one or two new goodies to play with!!  If anyone's going, It would be great to meet up.

Beautiful card Avril. Love the way you have angled that image with great composition.

A beautiful creation Alison and a great entry for our theme this month, thanks for sharing at FVSC.

Enjoy that shopping, it's a couple of years since our last wedding but always such fun preparing, if exhausting at time.

Hi Arvil.
I just popped over to admire your beautiful lady. Always know it's your card with an elegant lady on. It sounds like you are one busy bee but i'm glad you are getting chance to go to Harrogate. I shall be there so will look out for you. We usually manage to bump into each other I know. Just hope the weather warms up a bit.
Hugs Lisax

Hi Avril

Oooh a stunningly elegant card... fabulous vintage theme.. love it!

Sounds like a good day on Saturday - Elaine, t'other Christine, Kath, Lisa, and Mau will all be there too.. I would imagine we'll all be around the coffee spot at 11.00 - 11.30 ish! Nudge me if I walk past you, I don't wear my distance glasses so never recognise people until they are right next to me! (am also rubbish at remembering faces too!)

Looking forward to it.

A fabulous card Avril - and wow, it's an advert for Harvey Nicks! Of course I always buy my hats at the Leeds store!!!Lol

Gorgeous spring colours, and a big old WOW to that flower! Thanks so much for all your lovely comments today - that was some dedicated catching up... I've still got lots of that to do!!
Lot of hefting and sorting so far in the museum, but we'll get on to the fun bit of renovation soon, I hope...
