Bumble Bees and Landscape Challenge

I've had a really good afternoon crafting and generally messing up my workroom and you can see the evidence of that tomorrow on WOYWW.

 I started F for ??? ... the next page of KCUK alphabet swap and made an Asian landscape card (below) for the Lots to Do challenge and I've also made a start on the next challenge for the Stampman.
I've not managed much paper crafting this week, due to making dresses for my grandees.
 DD2 and co., will be visiting DD1 in Brighton, next week, and they will be having a Bumble Bee 1st Birthday Bash for grandee 2, so I was enlisted to make their outfits. They all have stripey dresses (which made me dizzy) with soft tulle underskirts and the black hats with antennae that I crocheted last week. 
I am somewhat unsure of sizings so I ended up making 4 dresses instead of 3 to make sure each gets one near enough to their size. Let's hope! 
I love these buttons that I managed to find and they finish off the dresses perfectly.
We can't manage to see them on the day, so it will be lovely getting photographs of them all together dressed in their outfits!
Next week's project for the mini fashion queens will be red dresses with black spots.... Ladybirds!!.

Love the card and the dresses, Jo! I'm not surprised that sewing the dresses made your head spin - dots for the ladybirds should be much less dizzy making!

Fab card you have made,I love the oriental design. I am very lucky to have a set of 4 silk oriental paintings, which my dad bought from someone when he was in the war. The guy needed money for beer and was trying to sell them. You card reminds me of them very much.
I adore thos little dresses too, bet the girls look great in them. The buttons are gorgeous.
