Penny Black 32 ~ Lets Get Dotty & Sketch Saturday

Hi everyone, yes I'm still here.... just no time to craft again last week.
I haven't been feeling that great again, so have been trying to rest as much as possible.

So I apologise now for not been able to get round and visit you all, I will try harder this week, but thank you so much to everyone for your lovely comments left on my blog - they've really cheered me up and are my appreciated.

Well its time again for this weeks:


This week we want you all to go Dotty mad, this can be on paper, ribbon, embellishments ... anything really - just have fun !!!

Thanks to everyone who joined last week and wow what a fabulous response there was to Kaths colour challenge.

I used a new Pink Petticoat download ~ Mini Little Big Dots, I just love these papers.... I've been making some Valentines card for Poppicrafts a few weeks, which you'll get to see in a couple of days.. and really wanted to follow with my Red & Black theme - just love this colour combo....




Well I'm sure you'll guess - but I'll tell you anyway, all the embellishements can be found at Poppicrafts - why not pop over and see Michelle's fabulous new range of crafting goodies.

This week I thought I'd decorate the inside of my card, I really love this idea as it really finishes the card off - lets see how long I can keep this up.... lol, I always do the back of my card (just never show it)....... but love how the inside personalises the card..



We have another fab prize up for grabs this week, kindly donated by Kath:

6 x 6 Paper Pad from Paper Cellar
Black Magic.....Core'dinations Pad




so be sure to pop over and also take a peek at all the gorgeous work from the Design Team this week - they truely are inspirational.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Well its time for another one of Jo's fabulous sketch, and Im sure you're going to have as much fun with this weeks gorgeous sketch as I did.

Thanks to everyone who joined last, what an amazing response

Here's a sneek peek at my card this week



And here's Jo's gorgoeus sketch this week:




I've just my new WOJ ~ Daisy Celebrating Duck image, just loving these new images and can't wait for the new Spring Stamp Kit, which Katharina is taking pre-oders here, but don't delay.....go take a peek.


Well its a little different to my first card - thought I'd go with a pastel look to compliment this gorgoeus image - the papers are by Daisy Bucket Designs and I only picked them up at my local craft shop yesterday, but couldn't wait to have alittle play - yes I know I was still making my DT card last night - nothing unusual there, lol
And here's the inside:



Well Im off to work again today, so will catch up later.
have a great day everyone

Hugs

  9. Two great cards Tracie. Sorry to hear you've not been feeling 100%. Nice contrast using the strong colours for the PB card and the pastels for SS. Love the decorating you are doing on the inside of the cards. I'm usually a last minute crafter and am probably the last to send my DT card to Jo. Will try harder to do them earlier in the week. Have a great weekend.
