Dotties's World Competition

Over on Dottie's World, TWO sets of the new Pixie Chicks CLEAR STAMPS are going to be given away to celebrate the launch of some of their designs in physical form!! To be in with a chance of winning, four consequetive challenges were to be entered!

26th September - "Charmed I'm Sure
4th October - "Going round in Circles
11th October - "Halloween - ish"
18th October - Autumn / Fall

The first of the challenges I initially submitted as e-mail then, within hours of starting my blog - DISASTER - the hard drive crashed and died!! I lost all my images (sob). Now using Mr Blogger's tempermental machine. I will be so glad when I get my new one. The lovely Karen at Charmed Cards and Crafts has sorted me out with my digis so I can come out to play again and I'd better catch up - fast!!! So below is the last of the four challenges posted 18th October . The immediate three posts below are in order, for the other three challenges involved in this competition!!

"Autumn / Fall"

This is the final and most recent of the four challenges, posted 18th October. For this we are required to get inspired by the colours green, yellow, orange and deep red and use at least one or two of them. As gold suits these colors so well, this is to be included. That can be some gold embossing, a ribbon a paper or what ever you want and of course 1 charmed digi download has to be included.


Patterned paper - Basic Grey
Sissix Oval Nestabilities
Cardstock from stash
Colouring Medium - watercolour pencils
Flower - Prima
Chipboard - Making Memories (I think)
Ribbon - local haberdashery
Card Candy

I hope you have all had a great day. I am slowly catching up with the crafting I am wanting done. Hopefully, there will be further posts later in the week. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!
