I'm Back - and Sentiment Circle # 4

First of all - WOW! Your response to the blog candy has been fantastic! I'll pick a winner ASAP. Thanks for all your lovely comments, I look forward to visiting your blog over the next few days. I haven't closed it yet so if you want to be in with a chance to get the pads then just leave a comment. I am going to put on some more candy very soon as you seem to like it xx

Well, it's been a terrible week with computer problems galore! My Internet connection has been down and now neither of my CD drives are working! Sometimes I feel like just throwing the damn box out of the window! So that'll be my Saturday then trying to fix that.

I was meant to have set last Sunday's Challenge on Dottie's World but then of course my computer put a stop to that. My challenge was "Pretty in pink" with lots of pink pink PINK and also some sort of jewel(s)/charm(s)/or beads. The girls created some stunning projects as always. Here is my DT card, that of course never found it's way to Dottie's World. The Christmas tree and Dottie on ice is from the Christmas Download Bundle. Actually I ended up with two versions, one with two circles (one a Dovecraft Shaker Sticker) and white acrylic paint and glittery edges, and the second with just my own sentiment circle and no white edges. I added glittery effects on the card with crystal, soft pink and baby blue stickles. There are jewels on the tree and a snowman charm hanging from the pink raffia ribbon. The beads are in the "shaker version", so I manged to incorporate everything :o)

I also promised you another word circle sentiment before BT Broadband prevented me from posting it. I see that Juliet posted her fabulous example card on Dottie's World, but here are all the sentiments. As always they are for personal use only blah blah blah. Several formats as before, click on the image to open larger version then right-click/save picture.
