Dottie's World

I am absolutely thrilled to bits - Louise, Nicola and Karen have invited me to be a member of the Design Team for 'Dottie's World'. Well, of course I said YES PLEASE!!! I am sure many of you will already have been introduced to Dottie and George (and some of Lou's other fabulous work), but you are always very welcome to pay a visit to the 'Dottie's World' Blog by clicking on the link on the top right to see some stunning creations. There is also a weekly challenge, posted on Sundays, with a monthly prize of an 'exclusive' Dottie image download. As well as all that, we have 'Customer Thursday' and each Thursday one super talented customer will be invited to be featured on the blog.

The word is that there are some fantastic Christmas images due out veeeeeery soon, so watch this space, add 'Dottie's World' to your favourites and you can purchase all the collections from http://www.charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/ or click the link on the right sidebar.

Here is a 'Cheerleader Dottie' card, complete with pom poms, which I made a couple of weeks ago for Angela, one of our PE teachers who was leaving school. It is A4 in size (to take about 100 greetings!!) and Dotties dress and shoes are paper pieced.
Off to work on tomorrow's challenge now - don't forget to join in for a chance to win that 'exclusive' new image!

This card is for this week's Daring Cardmakers Challenge http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com which is to make a shaped card.....

'The Design Team have been busy working on this weeks dare ' It's all in the Shape' set by me. I'm a fan of shaped cards so thought this was a great one to do for my first dare. You can do any theme but your card has to be a shape of some sort.'I don't think I have ever done a shaped card before, but this image lends itself perfectly to the challenge. Another of Louise's designs, which can also be downloaded from http://charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk I resized the image in word and printed it out on the right hand side of a landscape page so the fold is on the back of the blue cat. I used shimmer watercolour paints from The Works, a few gems and a rub-on sentiment on the paper pieced heart.

Thanks for stopping by, Juliet xxx
