Dotties World Sunday Challenge

I can't believe how quickly a month has gone! This is my last week as Guest Designer for Dotties World

The challenge this week is Blast From The Past. It's been set by Louise and the brief is:

This week I want you to look through your photos of cards you've made in the past, find one you really like then recreate it using the exact same layout but with different papers and embellishments! Of course there must be a Charmed download image in there too!

So, here is my original card
And here is my challenge card
I've used HOTP papers, embellishments and overlay. The image is Scruff in the tub which was a previous challenge freebie.

Thanks to Lou and the team over at Dotties World for giving me the chance to be a guest designer, I've had so much fun these last few weeks.

Dotties World Sunday challenge

The challenge over at Dotties World this week is:
This week I want to see stitching, hand or machine - but REAL stitching, no faux stitching like I am so fond of in my work!You must of course use one of more of the many, wonderful Charmed Downloads but the rest is up to you.

I thought I'd go for something different this week, and as I needed a place to put all my quote books I decided on a storage box.

I covered the box using DCWV papers and lined it with sticky back papers.

I've used an image and quotes from "Girls about town" which is one of the fabulous downloads available at Charmed cards and crafts
The image is coloured using Pro Markers.
I've hand stitched around the quote on the lid and stitched together some fabric petals to make a skirt for Nicola. I've also added some decorative stitching to the skirt.
I've also used Anitas sticky ribbons and a dismantled flower from Wilkinsons.

Dotties World Sunday challenge

The challenge over at Dotties World this week is "Lurve"I've used an image from the back to front collection and papers from DCWV.
On the front of the card you see the front image of Dottie and when you open the card you see the back image of Dottie.
The images are coloured using Promarkers.
This is the view from the top of the card so you can see how it works.

Message book

I've made this for my darling Daisy who is leaving school this year. It is so her friends can write messages in it. It also has little pockets on some of the pages so she can put mementos in. I can't beleive she's leaving school already! It only seems a few years since she was born! lol

Dotties World challenge

I've been lucky enough to be picked as guest designer at Dotties World along with Tip Top for February, and this is my 1st challenge as a GD.
The challenge was:
Spring is nearly here......so I want to see shades of yellow & green

I think the Hippy Dottie image really suits a spring theme. I've used Promarkers to colour the image and used my Purple cows trimmer to cut the edges. The paper used is from DCWV matchmakers 2 paper stack.
This image really reminds me of my college days soooo long ago, lol

Remember to come back next week to see what the next challenge is.
