Cardmaking with the Dollies

Something unusual for me - two cards in two days!! Might have something to do with my printer being on the blink *again* but the silver lining is me moving out of my comfort zone again and getting creative without photographs.

I made this one yesterday, and I have to say I had heaps of fun with it, pulling out bits and pieces from my yellow scraps folder. It's one of my new favourite cards.  I also used my brand new Cosmo Cricket 'Tiny Type' alphabet stickers, my new favourite alphabets!!

# Design Dollies ~ Elements challenge ~ Something sunny + yellow

Today I made this card:

I invaded my scraps folders again, and used up some offcuts of Basic Grey lace doiley paper, Rose Moka and  Memento.

# Design Dollies ~ Colour challenge ~ royal blue, sky blue, lime green
# The Pink Elephant ~ Challenge 56 ~ add green

UPDATE 26/3/10: Chosen as one of the winners at TPE!
