Over on Dotties world its Karens turn this week to set the challenge.
She has chosen ....Spots,quite simple just use spots!!! This is my card, for the backing paper I used some pink with white spots paper from the vintage kit in Lets make cards and then tore some vellum which has glitter spots ons( difficult to see in pic) for the snowy hills, I then used spotty card cut into triangle shapes to make the trees,adding the strung pearl spots, I used my new tpae printer for the greeting and reduced the Dottie image on word,then used watercolour pencils to add a complimentary colour. Then for a finishing touch I added stickle 'icicle'

Sunday Challenge... Not a Card

It's Louise's turn over on Dotties world and she has chosen....
I fancied a change so here's the challenge;
Make something using a Charmed download but IT CAN'T BE A CARD!

So i used the Sleigh download from the Christmas Bundle,(click the blinkie)available from Charmed Cards and Crafts.
This is the image directly from the download,not put on word to re-size,so it is quite big,but could be anysize you like!
On my Epsom Printer I went to advanced settings and clicked on mirror image,to make the opposite side for the sleigh,I then cut them out and coloured with different Sakura Pens.
I then,which you can't see glued to acetate and cut around the outside of the shapes ,leaving the ski's in one piece for stability, I then cut out a tray shape to join the two pieces together,if anyone is interested contact me and I'll send you what size and shape to use.

Then came the problem,find enough sweeties to fill it, luckily I found a few,so added some foil to the tray to display them in and also my duaghter is eyeing it up for her barbie/bratz dolls lol!xxxx

It Juliets turn over on Dottie's World.
'Good morning, I hope you're all well this Sunday morning and raring to go with this week's challenge. This week, I'd like you to create something on the theme 'Love is......' and I would like to see a message or journalling on the FRONT of your card. As usual, you must include one of the Dottie downloads too'

I used a Christmas Cuttlebug folder for the embossed words,which I made pink for October at its Breast Cancer Awareness month!
Hot off the press Paper Piazza Friendship 8x8 paper.
I used the wonderful Christmas fairy from the Christmas Bundle downloads. I coloured her with a pink watercolour pencil,then added gold cosmic shimmer,which is difficult to show even in the daylight,I then added icicle stickles . And all these items are available from Charmed Cards and Crafts. Its my turn this coming Sunday, so make sure you check Sunday morning.
