Step into Spring with Dottie!

Lou has set this week's Challenge over at Dottie's World;
"I don't know about you but I love the fresh feeling you get outside when you feel spring has arrived.
To celebrate the new season I would like you to make a card with a spring feel. It could be just the spring colours or even a spring theme like flowers or Easter eggs. The only rule is that you use a Charmed download.

Some fabby samples over on Dottie's World, pop over and take an inspiration peep!

Hi everyone, Happy Mother's Day to all you mums out there! Well another Sunday another Dottie's World Challenge. This week it was set by the lovely Gunn;

"Hello everybody.
Another sunday with another challenge. This week I wasn`t to sure what I really wanted. Suddenly it hit me- AddOns...
And by that I mean: You have to use 3 flowers, 2 brads, 1 button and finally 1 charm.
And of course you have to remember to use a Charmed download.
So go ahead and have fun."

Here's what I ended up with, I used Water Lily from the Pixie Chicks #2 collection.

Don't forget to join in and link your creations to my blog candy post above to be in with a chance of grabbing a freebie Charmed download collection of your choice. The more Dottie Challenges you play along with this month, the more chances you have of winning!

Copic Colour Challenge 55

Having a bit of an emotional time of it at the moment, not quite sure whether it's just sibling rivalry or issues with disability but it's SO draining. I feel family time just doesn't exist any more because I am juggling things between the children all the time......hey ho!!!
Anyway, better late than never here's a card for this week's Copic Colour Challenge. I started my card yesterday but I just couldn't get a result I was happy with last night so it sat on my desk until after work this afternoon! Still not 100% happy, I find masculine cards so looks rather bare.
This week's colours are;

I used the lovely Adam stamp from Toodles and Binks who are also our Sponsors this week.

Pastels or Brights?

Hi everyone, well today it is my birthday......21 again......and as it is my turn to set the challenge over at Dottie's World I thought I would put a little twist into this week's challenge. This week you have a choice but it's still fairly open.
I want you to think;


Make a card or project using a Charmed Download keeping to either VERY pale pastel colours or VERY bright, bold colours. Now if of course you want to make two creations, one of each, that would be fantastic. Perhaps try two versions of the same image.

Here's what I ended up with, not sure of the bright one, bit out of my comfort zone but had great fun making them both.

Now seeing as it's my birthday I thought I'd offer a bit of Birthday Candy, I'll give exact details ASAP but I am just waiting to ensure something first.....COME BACK and check out the details!! I will blog a seperate Candy Post for you to link to, but for now you will need to be a follower and to join in with this challenge to get you started......WATCH THIS SPACE!!!LOL
