Sunday Challenge #9 - Pick a Letter.

Hi Dottie & George groupies, Juliet here, and welcome to Sunday Challenge #9 - 'Pick a Letter'. The challenge this week is a little bit different.....Choose any letter in the alphabet, and use as many things on your card beginning with that letter as possible, for example, if you choose the letter ‘S’ you could use stitching, stamping, spots, staples, stickers, slugs, snails, stars, anything beginning with the letter ‘S’. You can use other things too, of course. Either Dottie, George or a Kitty from the downloads must also feature on your card of course, but get really creative with the other elements. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.


For my first card I chose the letter 'B' and used Baking Dottie (Dottie at Work Collection) with her Blackboard, a Butterfly, Bee, Brads, Blooms, Button, Blue, Birthday cake and a bit of Bling.



I used the letter 'G' for this Gothic Dottie (Rock 'til You Drop Collection) card, with Green, Gems, Glitter Glue, Giant flower and a Greeting.


Karen chose 'P' for Punk - Punk Rocker George of course,
P for Paper - Basic Grey Euphoria and Bazzill
P for Paint - (I used acrylic paint around the two main frames)
P for Pen - I doodled around the edge with a pen
P for Purple - purple buttons, purple brads, purple ribbon, purple bazzill. Plus you have purple in the BG Euphoria paper background.
P for Poem - OK it wont sell volumes but it rhymes LOL
P for Petals - Prima blooms

I just love the colours in this card and the verse is very clever - I didn't know Karen was a poet!

Nicola used Biker George from the new 'Rock 'til You Drop' collection for her stunning card, and the letter 'B' for Bike, Biker George, Brads, Blue, Black, Beige and Beard. I think George looks very handsome with his goatee. Nicola used the tutorial on http://charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/ for her circular greeting.

Louise also took her images from the new Rock 'til You Drop Collection, firstly with 60's George and the letter 'R', using Red card, Records and paper Ribbon. Those old vinyl records are superb - and I think we need a tutorial on making those Lou!


Louise's second card is 'Punk Rocker George' and this card is amazing. I think Lou must have been a punk to be able to add such fantastic detail. Her letter for this one is ‘G’, and we have George (of course!), Guitar, Glossy Accents on the guitar, belt and hair, Glitter on the guitar, Gromlets on a Green background (set with my big bite) and hand doodled Graffiti.


I hope you all have as much fun as we did with this challenge and we are positively itching to see your creations.
Have a lovely Sunday,
LOL, Juliet xx

What fabulous creations girls!
Nicola: love George with his goatee, I quite fancy him like that ;o) The "born to be wild" badge is super and I love the way you have cut George out along the edge of the card.
Lou and Juliet: Two cards this week? You are making me come over all inadequate (lol). Fantastic creations as always. I especially love the Gothic Dottie from you Juliet, and the Punk George from you Lou, they are both wild, mad and wonderful.

Woohoo, I've made a card for your challenge and it's on my blog now titled 'Pick A Letter'.

Karen said...

I've been told I cheated on this and received a slapped wrist. Apparently the George I used is not a Punk Rocker (despite the hair), but just a rocker. I apologise for the mistake and go back into my corner suitably chastised.......

Louly said...

LMAO! Did that slapped wrist hurt chuck? Aw you know I was joking.xxxxxxxxxx
