Oh what a beautiful morning..... oh what a beautiful day!! Sorry, I just broke out in song then because I've woken up to the most fantastic weather, which is perfect timing as my son is having his birthday party in the garden today. Can't believe I'm up so early on a Sunday morning too, but once I opened my eyes, saw that the sun was shining and heard the birds singing their 'Good Mornings', I just had to get up.
I'm so excited to show you my first Design Team card for the Dottie's World Challenge today! The lovely Louise asked me if I would be on the team and of course I was delighted to accept. Working with the Charmed downloads is an absolute pleasure - if you've not bought any yet then what are you waiting for?! They are so stylish and fantastic value too!!
I decided to use one of the scrummy Mikey downloads for this week's card. The theme is Coffee and Cream and I think this works really well on a male card. We're also asked to think stripes or spots, so I included the musical paper strips which have lines on for the notes (thinking back to my school days I'm sure that's called a stave?) and my spots are the letter stickers spelling out 'ROCK'.
I'm giving this card to my son on his actual birthday tomorrow - he's a bit of a budding guitar player so he should appreciate what I've done. Cards don't mean that much to a nine-year-old do they, but he does take an interest in what I do so hopefully he'll be happy.
I've been made to feel really welcome on joining the team at Dottie's World. Thanks for that girls and a big wave to the other newbies - isn't this fun?! I do hope you can join us for this week's challenge and can't wait to see what you create ;o)

Have a lovely day in the sun and don't forget that suncream!!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
