Dottie's been Tagged!

Over on Dottie's World it was time for me to set my first ever Sunday challenge!!! GULP!

I was going to be all prepared with an idea (that I needed to try out first may I add!) when Lou announced the “rota” and there I was at the top of the list and panic set in. With the children on holiday I put my idea away for another time and resorted to something a bit simpler!

"This week I want to see a tag or tags of any shape or size. It could be tag shape toppers, gift tags, tag books....and because hubby and me have just celebrated our wedding anniversary....for an extra Dottie bonus I would love to see some hearts and flowers too!!!"

The rest of the team have come up with some wonderful creations again; I hope you are as inspired as I am and Lou has shown some of the wonderful new "Spooky" collection too!

Here's what I came up with....after a lot of faffing around!




I loved working with the little love birds image, I had such fun blending colours for their plumage but unfortunately it doesn't really show on the pics.....after that I attacked them both with my pearlised paints, a glitter gel pen for detail and of course finished off with some glossy accents!

Love it, love it, love it! This is a super cute card Adele!I really like the gingham paper on it, it really countryfies it (I know it's not a word but you get what I mean right? LOL)
Thank you for seting a fabulous challenge, you're a natural.
