City Crafter ... Hats off to You!

Hi everyone ...
Today I'm hosting this week's challenge at City Crafter.... 

 The month of April sees not only Easter and Easter bonnets ... but here in Liverpool we have the famous Grand National Race ... On Ladies Day you can see some of the finest outfits and hats ... I'm not a fan of horse racing but I do so love to see the fashion ... So this week the challenge is all about HATS 


The challenge I have set is to make a card or project with either a Hat on Or the word Hat
Please hop over to the blog to see all the DT projects and to get full details ... I am sponsoring a prize this week too ...

Here's my card


Three different papers here ... and the dress form image is from Craft Secrets which I've held onto for ever ... but just seemed perfect for this card


I've used a couple of rubons and a butterfly fussy cut from patterned paper ... together with a few rhinestones ... and the little hat? Well I have a few of these hiding away ... I've had them so long I can't even remember where they came from...

So are you going to join us this week? I'd love to see your creations ... The more fancy ... the better!

Enjoy your day ... It's so cold here .... Brrrr!

Keep safe

~ Ros ~

That dress form image is amazing. A great inspiration for the challenge. The butterfly almost looks real. Maybe this challenge is what I'll need after a morning in town with all the kids!!

Isn't it wonderful to hold on to items? If you hadn't, you wouldn't have had your fine pink hat which matches your dressform card so beautifully. Lovely necklace, too, btw!

What a fun card, Ros, and a fun challenge! My mom absolutely loved hats in every shape and style! She would have been right in her element at your Woman's day! My dad had fun buying them for her and then taking her pictures and he always came home with the prettiest ones. Have a wonderful evening and thanks for the challenge that brings back memories.
