My First Dottie's World DT card!!!

It's been a bit of a whirlwind really, I was approached by Lou of Dottie's World on Friday and there was no way I could refuse........housework, NVQ, can that compare with making Dottie & George cards!! (I'll still have to fit in hubby, kiddies and once September is upon us..a bit of work again!)

I planned to do lots of crafting yesterday but what with Jack being at the hospital with what turned out to be a fractured toe....I was running around with Amelia instead leaving me very little time for crafting. LOL...that's life.
I did manage to make my first card toward the Dottie DT team though. Basic card, fun & simple challenge....a great way to ease me in gently!

This week's Dottie Challenge is MULTI CHALLENGE-CHALLENGE!
This week all you have to do is use one of the Charmed downloads BUT (there's awlays a but isn't there!) you have to combine it with one or more challenges from other challenge blogs! I think it's great to combine challenges and I think it should be encouraged, so there you go, I'm encouraging you!

I decided to combine this with the challenge over on My Time to Craft where the theme is Christmas. For speed I used an image I hade alread printed and coloured in with watercoloured pencils (pre-Prisma days!) So I picked out some bright and fun colours to match the image.

Many congratulations on your first DT card Adele, it's a real beauty! I can well sympathise with you trying to juggle study with family and craft, that was me last year but Crafting was the one thing that kept me sane so think of Dottie's World as your therapy!!
Love Becky xx
