Flowers for February

Thank you all for sharing your fab and fun "Chinese New Year - Year of the Rabbit" cards with us last week. What a wonderful array of creativity we saw on our travels around your blogs
We have a wonderful new Guest Designer joining us this month,  we were thrilled when Chrissie agreed to make some of her fabulous cards just for us and we know you'll agree when you see what she's been making.
Welcome  Chrissie!

It's the first Friday of the month so this week we'd like you to take inspiration from the flowers associated with the month of February
February's flowers are the Violet and the Primrose

The colours associated with them are shades of Violet, Sky Blue and Yellow and the traditional meanings of the flowers are Modesty, Faithfulness, Virtue and Young Love

We'd love to see what you can create using one or both of these flowers as the starting point for your crafting.
We're looking forward to seeing your creations, so please come and let us know where we can see them.
Here are the Primrose and Violet cards the team have been making this week, we hope they'll help get you thinking
Chrissie
