MAWTT - Spots or Dots

Good Morning! I'm here with Team B at

our lovely Jessie is hosting this week's challenge and has a fab theme of...

Spots or Dots
We would like your creation to have... polka dots or spots....  big or small.... to give us a cheery start to the New Year! :-)

This was a card for male... so kept it very CAS... and let the beautiful LOTV Pre-Coloured image do the talking... I was going to add some gold nailheads but they seemed to spoil the balance... so left it be... 

I used some of  my all time favourite 'go to' papers for males... Kaisercraft Hunt & Gather which seem to match perfectly. I think the sentiment was a freebie with magazine? I use it a lot as it's a nice size.

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's spotty and dotty creations and hope you can join us for this fun challenge! 
you have until Wednesday 20th January at 6pm GMT to enter.

Thankfully I made this card a long time ago, way before Christmas... good job I made it early, as I still don't have access to my crafting stuff at the moment. We're working hard to get my room sorted, and are making progress, but think it's gonna take longer than I expected. One job seems to lead to another.

My new bed arrived today ... SO glad... just have to let the new mattress settle for 24 hours and then bliss!! can't wait to get on it and in it!! my spine pain has been so bad without it. Sure hope it's comfy!

Will catch up with you as soon as I can
Love and hugs

Hi Sue,
what a super card, and a very lovely design too.
Thank you so much for all your lovely words on my blog.
I do hope that new bed is very comfortable.
I have a Memory Foam Mattress, and fine it very difficult to adapt to other mattresses when I am away.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
