Challenge #30 - Flowers, Hats or Horses

Hello Crafty People,

It's time for a new challenge here at The Squirrel and The Fox and this time our theme is:


Any Aussies amongst you will automatically realise the significance of this theme, for this week is Melbourne Cup, the horse race that stops a nation. Serious punters are busy studying the form guides to make an educated decision for their bet while some of us are having a flutter in the office sweep. Lucky Melbournians get the day off, but all around the country people are doing little work and wearing their spring dresses and fascinators to the office (usually this is just done by the girls, but I guess it depends where you work!)

So whether your creation features a flower, a hat or a horse (or a combination of all three) we want to see it. Our challenge this fortnight is sponsored by Make It Crafty, who are offering our winner an AU$15 voucher to spend online.

Our DT were given the chance to use MIC images for their creations and this is what they came up with:
Vanessa (using sponsor image)

Mian (using sponsor image) 

Lisa (using sponsor image)

Hilde (using sponsor image)

Mags B (using sponsor image)

Lynne (using sponsor image) 

Karen (using sponsor image)

 A creation from Linda and me will follow soon. We both have family in hospital at the moment so things are a bit hectic for us at the moment.
Thanks as always to our wonderful sponsor

I hope you'll play along with us!


  1. I didn't know about this race. I just love horse races where woman wear hats. So I will be googling for photos.
    Hats are such a fabulous accessory, it's a pity they've fallen out of fashion, there are so many gorgeous hats out there.

  2. Fun challenge! Thanks!

  3. Awesome inspiration; thanks for the fun challenge!

  4. Lovely projects by the DT!

  5. Love the insiration DT love those stamps too. Janet T
