Dottie's World/Daring Cardmakers and Cute Card Thursday...

......all rolled into one!!!

The challenge over at Dottie's World today is to use Dottie & George images but to combine with another challenge, so the first card uses the Daring Cardmakers 'Scrumdiddlyumptious' challenge.... "All things foodie - feature a food you associate with summer and sunny days (just to remind us of those summer feelings)".

I rushed to the K&Co Berry Sweet speciality papers and embellishments for this one, used the 'Puddle Love' image from the new 'Love and Marriage' collection coloured with Prismacolour pencils, added Glossy Accents to the puddle and finished off with a ribbon rosette.

This card combines with the Cute Card Thursday challenge.... "This week the theme is 'The two of us'. We would like you to use two of something on your card, it could be 2 people, 2 animals or 1 of each, we love to see your own interpretation as always!"

It's 'Love Birds', again from the new 'Love & Marriage' collection, this time coloured using a paint programme (my first attempt at this [not sure about it??] but quick). Papers are mostly Doodlebug and other elements from stash. I layered the images so their tail feathers stand out.


I had a fabulous day out yesterday including a visit to Dawn Bibby's new Design Studio and it was well worth the hour and a half journey. It is a lovely, spacious shop now with everything displayed really well and a great range of products and pretty good prices. The staff were so helpful and friendly and I will definately be going again (if only to spend my £5 voucher which I got for spending over £**(I'm not telling!!).

Have a great day and I hope it doesn't rain on you...xxx

Sound slike you had a great day Juliet.

I LOVE your cards!! The colours are amazing, I love that Berry Sweet range and the way you have coloured in that Puddle Love image is just superb and compliments the range totally. The second card is superb also.

Those colours on both your cards really are uplifting and wonderful, just what I needed on a gloomy Sunday morning!
