Song Title Challenge - Somebody to Love

Our song for February on The Craft Barn's Song Title Challenge is Somebody to Love by Queen.  I knew I had just the right stamp to use for my altered beer mat with this cute Crafty Individuals stamp of the little girl and her dog!  I also managed to use up 3 out of my thousands of Prima flowers that I don't seem to use much these days but 'had to have' when they all came out years ago!  We have to include the words and who sang it on our work.  I feel this has turned out a little drab but maybe vintagey!

12 Month Challenge - February

The Craft Barn's 12 Month Challenge is a line each month from the poem The Months by Sara Coleridge.  Together with the verse for February we also have to include a cherub and hearts.  I found this a bit on the difficult side as I think this is one of the rare occasions I don't have a suitable stamp in my collection and had to resort to Googling free images!  I sat at my desk for a while trying to think how to bring this all together as the stamp I chose to use for a lake doesn't really go with my cherub image but in the end just went with a mish mash collage and used some peel offs and rub ons to complete my page!
