Wow, our wonderful Gunn has set us the fabbiest challenge this week at Dottie's World - she wants us to choose our favourite ever Charmed download! How fun is that! Using your fave image!
This week I want you to take your favourite Charmed One- a new or old and just make a card or project with it. You can do whatever you want, just have fun. But your favourite has to be a CHARMED DOWNLOAD.

So let me see lots of favourites this week, and have fun.
Well actually, it may be fun, but....for me....kind of impossibe. I drew most of the Charmed digital images and so each and every one holds a special place in my heart - I just can't pick a favourite. So, I decided to choose one of the images I have used the most which must make it somewhere at the top of the list. Here we have 'Holly', named after my lovely daughter ( Mikey is named after my son)

I did some paper piecing to bring the image and the backing paper together. I hope you like it!
Pop on over to Dottie's World to join in the fun or pop on over to the shop to view more of the wonderful Charmed Downloads xx

Dottie's World - Frame it!

Ooooh I had such fun with this one! It's Karen's challenge this week at Dottie's World, here's what she said;

This week we would like you to frame something on your card. It could be framing an element, an image or indeed the card itself. Along with the frame I would like to see a few dots, how you present them is up to you. Please don't forget the most important part - a Charmed Download, which must feature somewhere on your card :-)

I had a commission to do this week so I combined it with the challenge. I was asked to make a wedding card and for me there was no question which image I should use!....

I used the bride from the Once Upon a Time digital download collection from Charmed Cards and Crafts. I dug out some sequins and glitter to frame her with and I'm really chuffed with the finished result.

I used a sentiment from the Once Upon a Time set inside the card.

The card is quite fragile so I made a box for it.

I decorated it with oodles of flowers.

I hope I have inspired you to play along with this week's challenge at Dottie's World - Don't miss it cos there's a fab prize too!

Manly -With a Twist

Ohhh our favourite! Crafting for a man! Ok so it's nobodies favourite but these things HAVE to be done so this week at Dottie's World Adele is getting us into action on those masculine projects.

As it happens this challenge came just at the right time for me. I recently moved house and I've been very busy making it livable. I'm proud to say that I've done most things by myself but sometimes men really do come in handy. My dear dear friend has done so much for me around the house, he is my hero and he knows it! He keeps asking when he is going to get his certificate so I thought it was time to make deserves two!

The colouring could be better but these certificates are actually quite mini so colouring wasn't an easy task with my copics. It's the first time I've made a black George but I think it suits him!

The images (need I tell!) are from Charmed Cards and Crafts and the challenge is at Dottie's World, please drop by xx
