Thanks so much for all your entries to Martine's Sketch :-) I am sorry if I didn't get to see them all as I am busy with visitors at the mo' :-)

Before moving on to this weeks challenge we have some very sad news to share, Dena has decided to step down from the team. We are all very sorry about this and we would like to wish her the very best of luck. Dena has been a fabulous team member and we will miss working with her LOTS :-( Love you Dena x x x

This week we want to see spots with our

GOING DOTTY theme :-)

We are sponsored as always by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and she will be giving one lucky entrant a trolley dash around her store to the value of $25 :-)There are lots of new products arriving daily AND the new Tim Holtz stamps are in stock !!

The DT this week are showcasing Prima Products so if you have any flowers, stamps, etc from Prima we would love to see them but you don't have to to enter the challenge

For my card I used a lovely Greeting Farm Anya stamp from thre Miss Anya collection. I stamped the image and then masked her to stamp the Eiffel Tower in the background , this is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set. I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with Spun Sugar Distress ink. I used my new Spellbinders Labels 8 die cut for the image. The flowers are Prima, I used a large pink one and popped a couple of Athena Powder Puff ones on there too.
The papers are Basic Grey from the Lime Rickey paper pad. I embossed a panel using a Swiss dot Cuttelebug folder too ,,, more dots !! :-) I used an EK Success swirl punch, a ribbon and a charm, then finished with a Tim Holtz Addage Ticket
