MAWTT - Let's Go Dotty

Good Morning....  

hope everyone is well today.. it's Thursday again and so time for another challenge over at...


and this week it's the lovely Claire's turn to host .... and she has chosen the fab theme of...
'Let's Go Dotty'

So we want to see dots or spots somewhere on your creations... it doesn't have to be a card... as long as you follow the theme!! and don't forget you can enter up to three times! but please no backlinking....

I have gone very Clean and Simple this week as I need to make some Thank You cards...


I've used a pink card blank and my new embossing folder which I love!! made the sentiment on computer... where are the dots you ask? on the little ladybird!! I really should have used my swiss dots embossing folder but just didn't think at the time... I was so eager to try out my new folder!! LOL 

We are sponsored this week by the fab Stitchy Bear Stamps



who are kindly giving this week's winner a $10.00 Certificate to spend in-store!!

they also gave us some really cute images to play with and I have used one called 'Lady Bug' which is perfect for a Thank You card!!! 


I made the graduated blue background on the computer and left the image black and white to colour... I've coloured the image with Promarkers. So it was quite a quick card.... but hope you like it...

Hope you can hop on over to MAWTT  where there are more details of the Challenge and you can see my Teamies fab creations... we really hope you can join us this week!

Also... we are having a DT Call over at MAWTT - so do please pop over for details if you are interested in joining our wonderful and friendly team ... DT CALL MAWTT

Looking forward to Strictly on Saturday - doesn't it come around quickly... the weeks are whizzing by now!! it is getting so close on the eliminations and the standard is really high this year... I don't want to see any of them go out! ...  Did you watch The Secret of Crickley Hall on Sunday? I thought it was fab... really spooky! just how I like it... 

Sorry if I haven't got around to visit everyone... I've had a couple of appointments this week and I feel really shattered after them... I guess I am run down with all the chest trouble that I've had recently... just want to sleep at the moment!!

Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment... I really do appreciate your support and will catch up with you soon!
Love and Hugs

Hello my lovely lady, I'm late this week (nothing new there!)
I love your pretty CAS card, thats a fab colour pink!! I think your embossing folder is considered 'dotty' enough for this challenge!!
I've recorded Crickly Hall and not had chance to watch it yet, now you have said that I can't wait!!
Stay safe
