dotties world cards

Dottie and George back to front collection

This card was made using the new download collection over on charmed cards and crafts its the Dottie and George back to front collection designed by the very tallented Louise. (I love this collection, its one of my favourites.) I have decoupaged the flowers to give it a little more dimension.

The inside of the card is just as detailed as the front.
Girl about Town

I hope she likes it

Sorry about the lighting this photo was taken at 7am. As i was dropping the card off today and it was the only chance i had to photograph it.

i am so sorry about the lighting in these photo's. I did these recipe cards for a cupcake swap that im in over on uk Scrappers. The recipe is printed off the computer and i used a clear cupcake stamp (this was 99p from a local craft shop). I used some pp out of my scrap box and the lovely Tilda stamp coloured using my prisma pencils and sansador.
I am a member of a stampers 10 group (stampin up) run by monica. She sets challenges each month and you get a little bag of goodies. This was our challenge. (i love it)

I attend a craft class on a monday evening at our local college Tina who runs the class is so tallented and comes up with some fantastic ideas. this card was supposed to be a femaile vintage card but i wanted to make a masculin card so i used the base idea off Tina then altered it by using some of my paper artsy stamps. Next week we are making a double diamond card. Then we are capturing a fairy in a jar (I cant wait)

I hope you liked these cards will be back tomorrow with some cards made from the new designes of Dottie and George over on Charmed cards and crafts

I'm still here

Sorry for not being a good blogger lately but before christmas the whole family took it in turns getting this horrible flu bug. (it was a really nasty little bug). Anyway then we went on our jolly holidays. oh what fun we had. walking along the beach in the lovely sunshine on christmas day, Then on new years eve we went to a free concert on the beach where we saw UB40 it was fantastic. 20,000 people and we were right at the front

I thought i would show you some of my holiday snaps.This is what it was like on our first day. We had left a cold and wet England to land in a warm and sunny PortugalChristmas morning sipping champagne cocktails as they were free karl got a little carried away and had about 8 (you wouldnt beleive he doesn't drink)Now it must have been warm for me to take my cardie off.Every christmas day we have chips and egg its a tradition we even took to PortugalThis is the stage on the beach ready for the new years eve cellebrations. (look right next to the sea)UB40The concert was fantastic.

When we were waiting for our flight home they said it was -10 at Gatwick. when we got there it had gone up to 0. The following day we got up for work. when we opened the curtains this is what greeted us (now someone is taking the mickie)

I hope i didn't bore you to much with my holiday snaps.

I will try and post some crafty things tomorrow.
