Dottie's World Sunday Challenge...Sketch by Karen...Beat the Heat!!!

WOW, this weekend is just flying by!!!! I was very productive in terms of card making yesterday but not so productive in terms of cleaning my house and dealing with the laundry, yikes! I think that is on the plans for today, that, and laundry, sigh!

But if you would rather make a card than do housework and laundry then you are in luck!!! Karen has a fabulous sketch for you over at the Dottie's World blog!

I really loved this sketch that Karen designed! Go check out the challenge here then you just have to make sure you have a downloaded image from Charmed Cards & crafts on your card and you are good to go!

For my card I used this pretty Daisy Bucket Designs paper called Playful Petals and Core'dinations cardstock! The border is a QK Silhouette digital design that I cut from the Core'dinations cardstock and mounted on foam dots. I had a few of the die cut flowers left over so I used them for the accent grouping at the top! The ribbon is American Craft and the sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on.
Holly was printed on Georgia Pacific paper and coloured with Copic markers! I matted the image on the Core'dinations cardstock and ruffed up the edges with my Tim Holtz edge distressing tool. I sponged around the image with Matellic Rub-Ons and I added a bit of Stickles to Holly and the die cut flowers!
Well, I wish I could switch spots with Holly and she could do my laundry for me and I will lounge on the beach! Do you think she would go for it?! Well, a girl can daydream can't she, lol?!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek! Now, don't forget to go to Dottie's World blog and see the fabulous creations the DW gals of made and then join us!
