Dottie's World Sunday Challenge - Make it Holey!

Good morning peeps!

Sorry for being so late posting my card for this week's Dottie's World Challenge. Double sorry if you're reading this boss, lol! I woke up with a bad headache this morning and so took some pills and went back to bed for a snooze - it wasn't alcohol inflicted I have to say. You know when you sleep very deeply and then wake up with a muzzy head, well I think that was it but thankfully it's wearing off a bit now ;o)

Onto the card and the challenge....... this week's task was set by the lovely Juliet who asked us to 'make it holey' - quite apt for a Sunday challenge I think...... do you get it? Sorry!!! It was a fun challenge which certainly got the old grey matter working, so thanks for that Juliet (and I hope you feel better really soon hun). Once I'd checked that any shape of hole was allowed, I had a browse through my wonderful Holly and Maddison downloads and when I saw Holly in the USA (one of my faves) the idea for some saloon doors was born. I cut them out by hand so I apologise if they look a bit amature, but overall I am quite pleased with the way the card turned out.

I hope you get chance to hop over and have a look at the amazing creations my fellow teamies have come up with and even better play along! There are so many ways to create your holes, even cheeseholing which was a new one on me, lol!

I hope you have a wonderful day and get lots of crafting done whilst the weather is so miserable.

Can I just thank everyone who has left me a comment recently - you have been so kind and I really appreciate what you have to say ;o)

Toodles for now, Tara xxx

Fabulous - love your stable doors - those hinges don't look the slightest bit amateur to me. That twine is fantastic - just hope your flowers don't all fall down.
You've just reminded me with this card I have Holly & Maddison and Mikey too in my computer and I forget all about them.
