Dottie's World Sunday Challenge...Twice as Nice by Adele...Time for a Mani-pedi, Cutie!!!

This week at Dottie's world Challenge blog, Adele, has set the challenge and it is.......
Twice as Nice!!!! "I want your creations to include two or more of the Charmed Download images, mix and match, resize, whatever you fancy but I need to see two images."

So, for my card I decided to use my Holly and Madison download images from Charmed Cards and Crafts! I am just loving the World Tour images designed by Louise! So, for this card you need to use your imagination a bit and pretend that Madison is really Holly,lol!!!!
I'm really getting sick of winter and being all bundled up! The other day I had one of those, "Note-to-Self-moments" and thought, I really should book an appointment with the Esthetician, ASAP! Once, spring is here and I shed my tuque, winter parka, and Ugs, God only knows, what is lurking underneath all the gear I have been wearing for the last 6 months, lol!!!! Yes, 6 months we have long winters here in Canda,smile!!!!
So, I cut a 6x6 cardbase from Bazzill Bling cardstock and used some Kelly Panacci pp that I have had in my stash for a while now! I stamped a Fancy Pants flourish stamp on the pp with chalk ink!

I printed Madison in the Mountains and Holly on the Beach. I resized Holly to make her a little smaller and printed her on Georgia Pacific paper that I had cut into a thought bubble shape on my Silhouette! So, this is where you have to use your imagination and pretend Madison is really Holly with her hair tucked up under her tuque and she is envisioning herself at the beach!!!!

I coloured both images with my Copics and used a little Metallic Rub-ons around Holly on the thought bubble! The sentiment is computer generated and I inked the edges and added lots of Glamour Dust. I just discovered Glamour Dust recently and love it!!! Unfortunately, it doesn't really show up to well!
So, there you have it! Now, I really need to go give, Meridith, my Esthetician, a call and see if she can pencil me in for a Mani-Pedi,lol!
Hope you have a great week and hope that you can join us at Dottie's World Challenge and make your creation Twice as Nice! Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look!

Well Tara, I have no idea what an Esthetician or a Mani-Pedi are but I have a feeling I probably need them too! LOL.
This card is cracking and until you said I wouldn't have even thought about the two images being different people and I drew them! ROFL.
