Seeing Spots . . .

Hello Dear Friends
and welcome to the beginning of the First Full Week of 2015!

I'm really liking how my new year is starting out and I hope you're off to a good start too!
Today I begin with a card for the new, fun challenge at 613 Avenue Creates!

Of course, our challenge is always ANYTHING GOES (with a TWIST).
You can either just play the anything goes or have more fun and use the twist!
Our twist this week is awesome ... check it out!

MATCHING ENVELOPE!

What a great idea and something I should do more often!  
We have two fabulous sponsors today ...


and

What a fun time I had making today's card using a fabulous image from Lacy Sunshine called  Rory's Bag Full of Lady Bugs.  What do you think?



How cute is this image and since 'Rory' had dots all over her attire, I felt it necessary to dive into my DCWV 'dots, stripes & plaids' paper pack for this card/envelope set.

I hope you'll come join in our fun at the 613 Avenue Create Challenge Blog and of course for more inspiration, do come check out what my team mates have created!  What fabulous inspiration!

Here are a few challenges I'd like to share in today:

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what YOU create for this challenge!
Trust me when I say "right now I can use all the inspiration you want to share!"  LOL!

As always and until next time . . .

Hey Darlene - what a cutie! I love the dots mimicked with the Liquid Pearls in the background. The sentiment on the vellum with the bling is a great touch too!
