A One Off Performance!!

Evening everyone, it's been a while since I joined in over on Dotties World.  The theme this week is Valentines and I decided to have fun by trying to use a Charmed image that may not usually be one's first choice for the occassion!  Tricky - so where does a gal go for romantic inspiration? CHICK FLICKS!!  This card will also be entered into the following challenges;

Double Dutch - Be My Valentine
Roses on Paper - Pink, Brown and Cream
Creative Card Crew - Valentine's
My Time To Craft - Hearts & Kisses
Stamptacular Sunday - Love is in the Air
Stampin for the Weekend - Love is in the Air
Pile It On - To the One You Love
Dottie's World - Be My Valentine

So ladies, hankies at the ready please lol, let me introduce you to George Swayze and Dottie Grey...


You may recognize the text from the chorus of the theme tune to Dirty Dancing, go on - how many of ya started singing along lol!! I don't have any large heart die cuts so I improvised and got a free template off the net, the site is called enchantedlearning.  It's worked out quite well.  Not sure about the papers now - might be a bit too busy - kinda messy - but then love's like that sometimes eh!!

RECIPE

Image - Charmed Download
Colouring Mediums - copics and watercolour pencils.
Papers - Basic Grey
Pink Jewel - Papermania 
Cardstock - Stash
Flowers - Prima
Card Candy

Thankyou so much for stopping by my little crazy haven!  You've have to excuse me now as I reach for me bottle of lambrini and box of choccys ROFL!!!  Oooh brings back memories lol.

Take Care

Love it. I'm still scared of patterned pappers and I am having to force myself to use them sometimes. This is great. Shows me that I need to experiment more.

Vicky said...

Hi Mel, just thought I would pop over and say hi...Thank's for the lovely comment's, I know Wendy from visiting her shop, she's a lovely lady and when she asked me to join the team I wasn't to sure, I don't feel my card's are consistant enough to join you uber talented girl's... so agreed to a month's DT and after we can talk about joining properly if I feel more confident...

You have a really lovely style, this card is great, I love the image and the sentiment...I really like the card's you made with the pixie's, and I see your a lover of Mo's images too...


Thank's again for the warm welcome...
