Sweet Stampin' - spots & dots

I'm back with my 2nd post for today, my DT card for Sweet Stampin', where our challenge is 'spots and dots'.  I love using spotty papers so this was a nice and easy one for me :o)  We're sponsored by Stamp Fairy and Crafty Ribbons this week and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen so there are some fab prizes to be won!



This card is for my mum to give to my youngest son Dex, who'll be 4 tomorrow.  I've used a very cute Lenny Notes image kindly provided by Stamp Fairy, coloured with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are MME 'blink of an eye', buttons and 2 different ribbons from my stash.

I've made the most of having a relaxing day today - tomorrow will be much busier!  Hubby's mum is having a joint birthday lunch for me and Dex (my birthday's in a little over a week), and then my mum's having a little family party for Dex later in the afternoon.  We still have to wrap all of his pressies tonight so I hope he goes to sleep ok, he's a bit excited!  Hope you're all enjoying your weekend :o)

Hi Lisa, Happy New Year! I haven't had a lot of time to comment; Hubby's been on hols! I just checked out your recent work, mucho yumminess on show, I gotta say :-) I love this card for Dex and the one you've done from yourselves too (I like that you've given him what he asked for on it, cute). Hope he has a lovely birthday, and that you do too - that's if you try and slide it by us :-) See ya, Donna xx
