All spotty and dotty!

Hi blogworld

Well that's been a long time between posts hasn't it!  My excuse is that I've been poorly - and reet poorly at that too, it's the worse I've felt in ages.  Don't know if it was a 'man' flu or a virus, all I do know is it knocked me for six and I'm just beginning to feel better now.  Of course, SHMbO has now gone and caught it and has spent the last three days on the sofa - so even less done about the house than when I was feeling ill!!

Anyway, am hoping all bugs and viruses are now on their way out now and we will all be well enough to go out and about during half-term.

Onwards and upwards!

And so the real reason for this post is that it's new challenge time over at The Cutie Pies and this time we would like to see your cutest projects which have 'spots and dots' on.

This fortnight we are sponsored by:
$10 gift certificate

$5 gift certificate

And this is my card, not my best as I wasn't feeling that well when I made it, but at least I'm joining in - which at one point I thought I wouldn't be!!

One and only shot:

I used:

Digi Stamp:
From the Heart - Ladybug Liftoff
coloured with my Copics
with chalks for the background

Nesties - for the image
Impression Obsession - bow

Random scraps

Anything else?
beaded heart, ribbons - from my stuff
Craftwork Cards - sentiment
Viva Pearls - for the spots on the balloons and party hat

So that's it folks - I hope you can find the time to join in, we are looking forward to seeing your spotty / dotty / cutesy creations!!!

Glad to hear you're on the mend, Sarah and I hope SWMbO is feeling better too! My little man is off school today as we are drowning under a sea of snotty tissues - I'm sure he is now the reason for the destruction of another rain forest!?!
Love your sunny card - bright papers, cute image and simple design! Hugs, Lisa x
