Going to the Movies!

Hellooooo! Can you tell yet that I am happy? That's because I have six weeks off work! Ok before I get into trouble for showing off I will get to the point.

The lovely Sheila set us a movie challenge for Dottie's world this week.....but guess what I did.....I went and broke my finger at work :) I cant even write so card making was out of the question for this week. But not to worry because I dusted off some oldies again for some inspiration, can you guess the films?

The star of all these cards is George, he's a digital download from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

DW Challenge - Summer Feeling

Good Morning everybody! Here we are it's Sunday again, time is going so fast for me, soon i will finish work for the summer yip yippidy doo!
It is my turn to set the challenge for this week at Dottie's World, here is what I said;

I would like you to use a CHARMED DOWNLOAD to make a summery card - or something else if you prefer! OK so that doesn't sound very challenging.......I would like you to make your summer item DIFFERENT to what you would normally make. Maybe you always make tent fold cards so try a side fold card or something completely different! Maybe you always make big cards so make a teenie weenie one, do you get my drift?
Most importantly, have fun!

Ok, so this is my challenge yes? So I shouldn't have any trouble remembering the main theme right? haha yeah right!
I got a bit carried away with the idea that I had to make something a bit different to my usual 'thing' and I completely forgot I was meant to make it summery! Arrrgh! Anyhow it's too late now so I've added one of my oldies for the summery twist (and its fits the 'different' criteria too)

My children live half of the time with their dad and half of the time with me so they take it in turns using my spare room, not ideal I know but hey that's life. I made this door hanger for their room which is reversible so i just have to switch it depending on the day. I've used the prince and the princess images and sentiments from the new Charmed digi collection 'Once Upon a Time'

Here we have one of my oldies I thought it might help to inspire people to try something different and have some fun. This is also a Charmed digi image (drawn by yours truly)

DW Challenge - Vintage

Hello Folks,

Hasn't it been a beautiful week! I LOVE IT! It's been very busy at work though, I'll be so glad in two weeks time when I'll have six lovely weeks off.

Today I made my DT card for the Dottie's World challenge. The theme is 'vintage with a summer twist' to be honest I'm not sure if I have achieved either but I had good fun and that's the aim of the game after all! here goes...

I've been itching to use the prince from our new digi collection, do you like him? I think it was a bit of wishful thinking when I drew this one, some day my prince will come...I hope!

DW Challenge Hot it Up!

Hi Folks!

I'm all excited because the new collection of Charmed digital downloads is almost complete! Karen and I have been working super hard on a fabulous bundle of images and sentiments for you. I couldn't wait to give you a sneaky peek (nor could Karen) so this week Karen and I are giving you a preview on our challenge cards.

To find out more about this week's challenge please pop over to Dottie's World

He is my card....
This is one of several 'panel' style images you will find in the new set. I love these because they can be used in a variety of ways. Here I have used it in the most simple way, the picture forms the card - nothing more- nothing less! but very effective don't you think? I filled in the background colour on the computer before printing it out for a nice even finish then coloured the rest by hand. I finished it off with some gems and glitter, super speedy and ever so priddy! even if I do say so myself ;P
Pop over to Dottie's World to see what the rest of the team came up with and for another preview from the new bundle xx
