My Challenge to Myself!

Hi everyone, Juliet here.
I don't know about you, but I have my favourite Dottie and George images which I use again and again, sooooooo I decided to set myself a personal challenge of using all the images I haven't up to now - anyone want to join me?

So, this is my first card using 'Skipping Dottie' and I am really pleased with the result, using Basic Grey Cupcake papers and Imaginisce flowers - all available at http://charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk.

Dottie's clothes are paper pieced on this card and I kept the doodling to a minimum for a change!




The next image I am working on is 'DIY Dottie', so watch this space!

If anyone wants to take up the challenge just leave a comment with a link to your blog so we can visit - we love to see how imaginitive you all are with these collections.
Speaking of which, I have to agree with Louise and Nicola - the Sunday Challenge cards are spectacular this week ......keep them coming.

Cor Juliet! What a great idea! I have loads I haven't used yet so I'll definately make time to have a go at this. I really love your card, I'm a big fan of paper piecing and it's worked so well on your card.xxx

What a lovely card! Dottie looks as if she's enjoying the summer weather on this one. She must be on holiday cos it's tipping down here! LOL!

I'm busily doing the same kind of thing with my rubber stamps at the mo - but who can resist playing with Dottie and George! Will definitely be trying this at the weekend!

Great idea, we sometimes stick to certain, familiar things and forget to try the rest, then when we do try them we realise just how fab they are :o)

I printed out the dart playing George to put on a card this week, but when I was sticking him down mum's dog jumped up and my hand slipped. Result ~ George's head came off - oops!!! Trying to get my printer to work properly, so I can try again!!!

Louly said...
