Challenge 42 Out of a Hat

Hello Everyone and a big thank you to all the people who take time to comment on my blog. It is always lovely to see what you put in the comments.

This week the Hatters are still in a party mood and Sandra made us a Bingo Board that is a little bit different from the ones you usually see on blogs.

As you can see every line you chose will have a Hat on it and 3 other things. You can use any line you like vertical, horizontal or corner to corner.

I chose Hat-Glitter-Bow and Text and made this Mad Hatter's Hat from toilet roll middles and leather cloth. The bow is on the peel-off and the glitter is on the heart.
I got the idea for this from Rita's Blog when she made some for Christmas. I did make my own version of her idea with twists here and there to make it more like the Mad Hatter's Hat. Thank you for the inspiration Rita.
I filled the inside with chocolates

Hope you will join in with us and made something from the Bingo Board.

Do pop and see what Janet and Sandra have made as well

Love Chrissie xx
