Die Cut Dreams #59

Good morning folks, hope you have all had a fabulous weekend. We have just lazed around cos it is far too hot to do anything else, roll on our holiday to UK where we hope to find some real cool weather.

Monday again and that means a new challenge at the Die Cut Dreams and this week is the first week we have the new and very talented Design Team sharing their stunning creations so be sure to pop over to the blog to view or better still pay them a visit - links can be found on my sidebar. Lyn AKA Spyder and Linda are our Guest Designers this week along with Vikki our monthly sponsor from Posh Pins and Charms

The theme for this week´s challenge is


use anything you wish , any colour you wish, as long as your creation has Gingham on it.

I have used gingham ribbon from my stash.

I have coloured my image, from Cuddly Buddly, with copics and prismas adding touches of glamour dust, gems to his waistcoat and a pearl to the walking stick. Papers and sentiment are from Stampin Up, corners are Double Do´s.


Allsorts - Dressing Up ... well he does have his Top Hat and best Waitcoat on rofl
Mami Doodles - Anything goes
Simon Says - We are all going dotty
