Dottie's World Challenge

This one was such fun! This week Adele wants us to use acetate with our Charmed Download -pop to Dottie's World for more details.

I think Acetate should be utilised so much more than it is on greetings cards because the results are faberoonie! Here's what I came up with ......

I liked how the acetate enabled me to get the legs dangling without them hanging loose.

Why don't you pop over to Dottie's World and play along I'll like to see what you come up with for this fab challenge.

Sketch and Stash Challenge

I haven't played along with a challenge for ages so I decided on Monday to do the fab sketch challenge from Sketch and Stash. The trouble is, I had to stop and as usual i went back to it at a later date and missed out one of the elements! Grrrr. Anyway you can see most of the sketch in it. I won't tell you the bit I missed out and you might not notice! LOL

So now I have to tell you which new stash I used....

I used my brand new Martha Stewart Edge punch and one of the new digi images (drawn by moi ;), everything on the card is from Charmed Cards and Crafts

Dottie's World Challenge - Leaf it!

It was my turn to set the DW challenge this week. It's a nice and simple one, all you have to do is use leaves and a Charmed download.

Here is what I made...
I do love fiddling with flowers and leaves you can't fail to make fab cards with them.

The image is one of my new little girls from the Sugar and Spice download collection. Sold only at Charmed Cards and Crafts. Drop by for a look if you like to buy new things but you don't like to wait for the postie, you'll have them printing out in a matter of minutes!

Happy crafting,

Louise xx

Dottie's World Challenge - Monochrome

Hi Folks,

Here I am again with my DW challenge. I know it's all I seem to to these days but I'm going to make an effort to blog much more often - promise :)

This week Gunn is setting the challenge and she wants us to stick with white as the main colour. I took my photo under artificial light so it looks more yellow than white (EEK!)

The image is of course a Charmed download which can be purchased at Charmed Cards and Crafts.

Thanks for looking, pop over to Dottie's World to play along xxx

Dottie's World Challenge

Hello Crafters!
How are you all this beautiful sunshiny day? ("yer right"I here you all moan, ehehe). Ah well forget the horrible weather and escape to your crafting areas because Nicole has a fab sketch for us this week at Dottie's World....I got started really early with this card and everything was ready to be stuck together when I got a sudden last minute Creativity commission in so I put it all safely to the side to be finished later. Hmmmm the problem is when I put it all together today it appears I forgot the sketch a bit and one of my rectangles is the wrong way round! But it doesn't matter, you can still see the basic layout and that's the aim with sketches after all.

Here's what I came up with...

I thought the background to the image was a little stark when it was white so out came my shimmer chalks, I'm quite pleased with the way it compliments the colour scheme now.

The papers are from Bo Bunny here and the image is one of my own drawings which are sold as digital download at Charmed Cards and Crafts so you can get everything for this card at the same place and in the same transaction, handy eh? :)

Amazing Challenge!

Hi Folks,

I have to say that I think that this week's challenge at Dottie's World is a stroke of pure genius from Adele, pop over to Dottie's World for more detail
This was perfect for me because it encouraged me to loo through my old papers and discover what lovely things I have got but haven't used in ages.
It also required me to use something new so out came my Martha Stewart punches which I got as a very special Christmas gift from my friend and partner in digi downloads - Karen.
Here's what I came up with....

So, my old element was the basic Grey papers and the new element was my border punch. The image is one of my drawings which is available to purchase as a digital download from Charmed Cards and Crafts

Go on...join in the fun!
