Dottie's World-I Need Flowers!

Hello and Happy Mother's Day!
This week Gunn is hosting the Dottie's World challenge, and she wants us to add flowers to our card. :o) Easy...cause I LOVE adding flowers/using floral patterned paper!
So I used one of my favorite charmed downloads from the Holly & Madison World Tour-Madison in France and you can get it HERE.
Maddy is colored in with copics of course. :o)
Paper is Green at Heart by Basic Grey...and so are all the little die cut flowers, and the journal box.
The sentiment is Close To My Heart
The rhinestone swirls are Me & My Big Ideas

That's pretty much it....I'm off to Mother's Day brunch with LOTS of family.
I'm looking forward to relaxing and enjoying the morning.

Have a fabby Sunday and if you are in Canada-have a fabby Mother's Day!
Oh and make sure you check out the Dottie's World Challenge blog to see what all the other designer's came up with for this challenge.

Bye for now,

Dottie's World-All Sewn Up!

Hello and Happy Sunday. :o)
Sorry about the long time since my last has gotten crazy...well a little more crazy than usual. PLus the weather here has been quite crazy which has caused me to suffer several migraines....I even had the pleasure of experiencing the aura...which was not very pleasant!
But I'm feeling better now and took a half day off "work" today to work on this card.

This week I'm hosting the Dottie's World challenge and I want to see some stitching-faux/machine, hand are all fine, and also include a Charmed Download as well. I just love the look and feel of machine stitching on makes the cards feel so heavy and finishes them off realy makes a beautiful card....stunning.

I used the Holly in England image form the Holly/Madison World Tour collection, and you can get it HERE. I love this image-it reminds me of my friend Jody. :o)
I colored Holly in with my copics....and wow was it great to use my copics again-two weeks is toooo long to neglect my little "friends".
The paper I used is a special kit from Close to My Heart called The Miracle kit, and it is only available during the month of May 2010.
The ribbon, sentiment and tag are also CTMH
The pearl flourishes are from them to pieces!

I think that's about it.

Thanks for stopping by,
Have a great day!
