Delightful Dotty

Good morning everyone! For those of you in the U.K. hasn't it been nice to have some lovely weather for a change. We managed to get out in the garden and do some tidying yesterday and Dave got the lawn cut too. Seeing the crocus and snowdrops and even the occasional daffodil out always makes me feel so happy - Spring is on the way!  Phantom was brilliant I really cannot recommend it highly enough if you have never seen it.  I have been walking around the house with my headphones on singing at the top of my voice to the soundtrack since we got home - poor Dave as I have a voice like Hilda Ogden!!!!  We went for a nice Spanish meal in the evening and a leisurely breakfast in the morning all good fun!

Well Mr. Mojo has really done a runner on me this week.  I really want to make a card I come up to my craftroom look at my stuff and - nothing!!  So I am eeking out the cards I have to show you until he decides to make an appearance again.  Yesterday it was my turn to be the Hostess over at Digital Delights.  I decided to make criss cross cards so here is one of the ones I made:

I used Delightful Dotty, Delightful Oz Coloured background and Dream Sentiment Set all available here.  Dotty has been coloured with Copics.  I have added some Stickles to the edges of her dress and lots to her red shoes.  The papers are some really old ones I have had years and years, I think they were just about the first pads I bought maybe from QVC.  The flower is made with a Memory Box die Fabulous Phlox.  I have used my Grand Nesties to cut and mat and my Edgeabilities for the border.  The ribbon and yellow gem are from my stash.  Here is a view of the inside:

I have used my Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page Punch - Cherish.  I put the sentiment over the background and then printed it, that is about as far as I can go with digital images! Here is another shot:

Well that is about it from me for today.  Dreaded housework this morning then we are meeting a friend and her little girl for lunch.  I am hoping Mr Mojo may oblige and I can do a bit of crafting otherwise it will be ironing mmmmm!   Thanks for looking today, take care xx
