Going Dotty @ Moving Along With The Times

Mornings all! 
Thursdays always bring a thrill around here! 
As it is brings a new challenge at ....

I also have some news to share with you today :(
It has been a really busy last few months for me,
and I have an even busier new year planned with
returning to work full-time, so after much thought, tossing and turning,
 I have decided to step down from the team :(

I love the cabbage patch of nutters over there so I will still be playing along with them whenever I get the opportunity too!  They are a fantastic bunch of girls to work with and I thank them and Hazel for inviting me onto the team!  I have had a blast and made some great friends that I will never forget and hope to visit and drop in on often!

Talking about Dream Teams to work with! 
Moving Along With The Times  
is also holding a DT call! 
You can check out all the dets HERE!
Go on ... check it out!  You will not find a better patch of folks to work with! 
I'm seriously tempted right now to delete my post and take back my resignation! Cause these girls ARE that nice!  

 You are also here for a challenge!
So ... This week Claire is challenging the team to ...
Let's go Dotty!
 We wanna see spots / dots!

This is an easy challenge!  So I am sure you are all up for it and will play along! 

Now ... I warn you, with my card this week ... 
You may need a paper bag as you are likely to hyperventilate! 
I have gone ... 
Clean and Simple this week!   

 Yeah baby!  That is ONE layer! 
OMG!  I struggle to breath now just looking at this! :)

 See! I can shock you all every-now and then lol 
 And hey!  After all!  It is nice to go out with a BANG! 
I do love Clean and Simple, specially when everyone else does C&S.  I myself just can not do C&S!  I always end up adding on more and more and more!  But I do love this card and it was a really nice challenge for myself that I think I am going to have to really challenge myself like this more often! 

The gorgeous image and sentiment is Snow Mom from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, I have colored her with Spectrum Noirs (another thing I am challenging myself with in this card) and I do love how she colored up!  For her snow pom pom I have used clear stickles and for the fluff on her hat and coat some white 3d fabric paint.   For some dotty-ness I printed out with the image the dotted border and have also added some snowflakes with liquid pearls. 

 Stitchy Bears Digital Stamps 
are also sponsoring our challenge this week! 
And there is a fabulous prize up for grabs! 
 And the Moving Along With The Times girls
 have gone a little spotty too this week 
so be sure to pop on over and see the girls!  
They would love if you called past! 
With a heavy heart I bid you all a farewell! :( 
And thank you greatly and muchly for calling past to see me today :)
