After working really card and just a little stress on the way my Big Sister has passed her last accountancy exam so is now fully qualified
I thought this called for a card and as I have had so little time at home I have combined four challenges!
Twice as Nice
Dotties world would like you to use two or more charmed downloads on your creations. You can mix, match, duplicate an image, resize, whatever you fancy but they need to see two or more images
Colours Navy, Lime and Turquoise
The added element this week is to create the project without using designed paper.
Want a card designed for a member of your family
On this card the navy card at the back has a slight sparkle in it, as does the turquise squares.
On the lime green piece I used my small dots embossing folder in the cuttlebug. I had tried doodling this but it looked like a kids has scribbled on it so i went with the embossing.
The small squares we done using another embossing folder in the cuttlebug
The images are Dottie Gradulates and these were pre-coloured images and the text was done in word

As usual any creation but must be based on your favourite colour scheme.
And here is the sketch we would like you to follow. You can rotate, re-size, add extra bits, and if you don't have a scalloped edge feel free to use a straight one!
For this card everything apart from the colouring and the flower is new
The stamps are 'Bubbles' from the Daisy and Dandelion collection

Good morning boys and girls, Karen here (are there any boys out there? Let yourself be known).
The Sunday challenge today is set by me, and I have created a sketch for you to follow. I am going to offer a little prize to one lucky participant this week, I will pick the winner randomly next Sunday.
For this card the paper came for a paper pack from QVC
The stamped image is Candyfloss and was coloured using my water colour pencils
The sunflower was from my stash
The paper flowers from the same QVC paper pack and I inked the petals to make them stand out
The text was done on my labeler machine
Thanks for this sketch love it

Just realised I have forgotton the ribbon for the tag, never mind too late now the cards gone
Thanks for looking and Happy Birthday to Cute Card Thursday

HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT!
As usual any project but cake must be somewhere on your project!
The stamp is again one of my new Murray & Ethel stamps coloured with my Tria markers
The sentiment comes from the same stamp set.
The Dottie paper was free with a magazine
The flowers are metal ones that I coloured with my Trias and mounted using silicon glue

For this week's extra option we would like you to come up with something other than a card, but please remember that this is not compulsory.
On My Time to Craft Challenge it is WOMEN
For this I made a note book - first time using my Bind it All (and I love it)
I used one of my new Murray & Ethel stamps and coloured her using my Tria markers
The words came from the Murray & Ethel stamps too
The strips are sticky ribbon
Hope you like it
Thanks for Looking

Any project as long as there is an element of masking on your project.
I was the thick one who did not know what masking was!! lol.
But thanks to Stampin Abi I do now!
On this card I stamped the small Elephant 'Onions' and then masked him with a post it note so that it did not move and stamped 'Pickles' over him.
I am really pleased with how it turned out
The coloured card was embossed in my cuttlebug.
Pickles and Onions are coloured using my Tria Markers and mounted on 3d foam
Thanks for the Challenge it's one I shall use again now I know what it is.

On this card all the papers were freebies from a craft magazine. I cut the circle on my craft robo.
The image is another of the Pollycraft images from the Bex Birthday Collection coloured using Tria markers and Sukara Gelly Glaze pens
The sentiment and corners were peel offs from my Stash
I found this sketch quite a challenge - hope you like the end results

This card was done by using a dark brown as my base card.
Then a light blue for two of the strips. These I put through my cuttlebug to emboss
The Triangle pieces were done from blue sparkly paper.
The strip of brown and the brown behind the text came free with a magazine
The text and stamps are from the Murrey and Ethel stamps set.
I coloured the lady using my tria markers
(and even managed some shading, I am learning)
and then finished the card with the blue gems.
Thanks for looking
Please check out the challenge sites as there are some amazing cards there.
