Going Dotty!!!

Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies...

Here I am today back well and truly in my PINK world... with my DT card for our new challenge at In The Pink!

The challenge theme this time is to use DOTS AND/OR STRIPES - so I thoroughly enjoyed going through my paper stash to see what I could come up with!!  (Memo to self: I REALLY need to clear out that stash!)  

And then a little bit of inspiration hit me..(it sometimes does you know!), Mr Mojo knocked on the door..  hmmmm...  in actual fact, I spotted this little lady that I had bought and printed out a few months back but hadn't got around to colouring.  HA!!  She has spots AND stripes - perfect for this theme!!  I've got to admit, I really loved colouring her...  the hair went so well...  and then everything else followed in the same way....  the right papers showed themselves, the layout...  the sentiment... the fussy cutting (I didn't manage to cut a leg off which HAS HAPPENED before), so it was one of those days when it all went right!

Don't you just LOVE this little sassy lady??  I certainly do!
