Charisma Cardz - Spots



Back again today with another card, and its a good thing I had it made at the weekend!  I have spent the last 2 days mopping up, emptying buckets and saucepans and drying off towels used to soak up the flooding water coming in all over the house.  Its not stopped raining heavily here all week, and what a stormy battering we have had! :( 


Anyway, we have a new challenge today over at Charisma Cardz and our theme is 'Spots'.  We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and Pink Cat Studio so there are some lovely prizes to play for.  The DT have created some really brilliant cards, so I hope you find time to check out the blog and play along.


I did an awful lot of die-cutting on this card too - lol! :)  I love the frostyville border by Memory Box, and I teamed it with various Spellbinders and Marianne dies.  The paper is K&Co and I coloured with PM's.



I struggled to take a good pic of this, and couldnt choose, to I uploaded them all! :D lol.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Totally Papercrafts - Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
Bling It On - Its Christmas
Just Magnolia - Red, White & Pink, the DP is red with pink spots (hope this is ok)

Lovely effect with those silver snowflakes to highlight the die cutting. Hope your weather has calmed down a little - we've had lashings here too & was I thankful the chimney was rebuilt earlier this year......we really would have had it tumbling town otherwise. The drains blocked so mega job for the drainage company - moss & silt from the roof sludged it up........but I'm thankful we found it before the snow begins. Drifts of leaves several feet high......... Take good care midst the mopping.

Hi, Alison; no idea where time flies and how comes my visits are so few and far between; I guess life just carries us away:)
Your cards have always been so beautiful and it's such a pleasure to browse through your blog. The thing I like most is that they are also creative and have a clean look. This one is lovely; great shape and colors really perfcet for this week's challenge at Just Magnolia.
I've just seen your comment pending for moderation. It seems there was a problem with Inklinks. I see it's now fixed. Maybe one of the girls did that. So you could be able to add your card within the next couple of hours. Sorry for that:)
Anyways, I'm happy you played along:)
Hugs, Iulia

I absolutely love this Alison. The shape and diecuts look fabulous and your colouring is gorgeous as always. Hope you've managed to dry out a bit more now; we're flooded in the garden and field which means the septic tank & soakaway can't cope. Been out rodding the pipes this morning - lovely! xx
