Dottie is ready for school

This card is for the sketch on Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge 12:

I've used a Dottie download digi stamp - Dottie goes to school - this week's Dottie's World challenge is 'charmed, I'm sure', which is why I've put the bag charm over Dottie's arm - she looks quite loaded, doesn't she?

On the new challenge blog Crafty Catz, the first challenge is a colour combo: green, blue and brown, with the option of adding a charm, which is there.

Whimsy this week for challenge 21 is: the eyes have it - use eyelets (there is one on the top of the tag, set with my big bite).

Pink Elephant 34 calls for something with dots (that's the base paper surrounding the card), a punch (using the big bite) and a tag.

This week's CCEE challenge is 'let's go digital' - the digi stamp of Dottie.

Stamp Something this week asks for something to do with apples/teachers/school (I hope it's OK that I've used a digi stamp)

The colour scheme for 365 cards day 109 is there on my card - and it needs to be a feminine one, so Dottie is OK for that.

As the card has a charm, it's another one for Dutch Dare 61,

The background paper is BG, the 'school books' paper is Poundland, the brown paper for the tag is Be Blessed. ABC rub ons and school stickers are from Poundland.

Pile it on ... and on ...

Challenge 17 on Pile it on this week is 'let them eat cake', so I remembered that I'd got a cute Penny Black stamp with a birthday cake on it.

I used Card Patterns sketch 34 - this was lovely to work with:

The idea of the Pile it on challenge blog is to see how many other challenges you can combine with theirs - so here goes:

Secret crafter Saturday challenge 51: animal antics
365 cards day 189: charming - add a charm
Cooking it up with Katie challenge 2: Recipe - metal (I used a charm, border punch (scalloped edge)and make the image be of something alive
Dutch Dare 61: so charming

Die Cut Dreams 16: ribbons and trims
ABC: E for embossing (Cuttlebug swiss dots)

Cute Card Thursday 80: a pinch and a punch - celebrate a 'first' (the cake has one candle, making it suitable for baby's first birthday)
