Hi Everybody - A long one I think!

I hope you are all well and not too cold, it has dropped in temp again here me little toes are freezing!. I have made a couple of challenge cards, I am so far behind with challenges at the mo it feels like catch up monday lol.


This week the challenge is "Lets get Dotty", so I pulled out some stamps and couldnt decide what to do, so heres what I came up with, I hope its dotty enough, the dt cards are fabulous!!!I stamped the image on to white card and the inked the edges, then I stamped the image again on some dotty paper from a dcwv nanas kids stack and cut around the petals, some I stuck with 3d foam, others just d/s tape. I embossed part of the back of the card with the swiss dots folder, and used some dotty ribbon.The sentiment is pb also. Thanks for Looking.x

High Hopes Challenge

This week the challenge is " Dude - one for the boys or men and no flowers", I havent used this little man on a card yet and he is sooooo cute! The dt cards are fabulous if your stuck for ideas go take a peek!Awwww one of my fave colour schemes, I am trying to give images blonde hair at the mo as I usually just do brown. The image was coloured with promarkers, and I stuck some of the rabbits with 3d foam, I added a little glamour dust just by his wand and on some of the bunnies also around the letters which are sizzlitts first steps.I inked the edges of the card, and used the spots and dots and swiss dots embossing folders. Thanks for Looking.x

I also recieved this award from Bev Thankyou so much Bev I was thrilled to recieve it from you :0) Go have a peek at Bevs blog, amazin stuff you will find there :0) now I have to pass this award onto 7 other bloggers and I hope you dont mind me being naughty by offering it to you if you have visited my blog today and dont have it please accept it from me :0)
