Get Creative Six of the best !

While you are reading this post I  ( hopefully ) am sunning myself by the sea with my oldest and best est friend  Maria otherwise know as Dolly  who is visiting from London. Our friendship is more than twenty five years old and for some reason we have always called each other Dolly. So when I was trying to think of a name for my blog I thought I would use Dolly somewhere in the title hence the name Dolly's daydreams.

Anyway down to business Our fabulous leader Irini ( also known as the misting queen ) from Get Creative has a very interesting challenge for us  Irini says

It is June, the 6th month of the year......
your challenge is to add 6 elements to your card.
But here is the twist....
your card has to have 6 of the same ONE element you choose...
for example if you choose pattern paper it should have 6 pieces,
if you choose buttons it has to be 6 buttons....
.........make sense?
Get creative and have fun!!

As you can see by my card I have added six of both of my elements just to be on the safe side !Why not pop over to Get Creative and see what my fellow design team members have come up with truly inspiring as always. So come on and Get Creative you know you want too !

Hopefully will catch up with you all next week after my little sojourn in the sun will have my trusty I pad with me to check out all your doings, sun bathing permitting !

Have a great weekend
