It's a patchy one!

Hello and welcome once again everyone. Jane here.

Can you believe its Friday again? The weeks in 2009 are whizzing by and its March already.

Many many thanks to those of you who joined in with Vanessa's lovely dare. There were some wonderful creations from you all.

Right, on to this week's dare, and its a 'patchy' one.
Yes, that's right - I want you to be inspired by patchwork and make a patchwork looking card. Great chance to use up scraps of off cuts - or buy some new papers if needs be! Any theme as long as it is patchwork inspired.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with - and don't forget to leave us a message and a link to your creation so that we can pop by and have a look.

Thanks again, and good luck
Jane and the team.

All I can say is WOW WOW WOW! ;)

They are all so very cute. I'd been thinking about making a patchwork card just a few weeks ago but hadn't yet gotten around to it. Such a great theme and so many possibilities.
