Playing with Polka Dots

I don't know why I love polka dots so much, but I do. And it just so happens that this week's Trend Watch at Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge is, well, polka dots!


      

Naturally I wanted to play. And if I have time (lol), I might even play again this week!

BTW, the nice ladies over at CASology picked this card as one of the Honorable Mentions for last week! Super thrilled to be among these incredible card making. Thanks!! Be sure you stop on by and check out all the HMs from last week, as well as the winning entry. And check out Darnell's princely card for this weeks challenge!

Now. Go forth and click on this link (ok, wait till you see my card below first please) and check out the Moxie Fabber of the Week!!!!!!! Yep, big congrats to Geri. How very cool Geri!!!!



All stamps are from Paper Smooches: Eco Friendly and Spring Groves, SU inks, and Echo Park and the Paper Studio polka dot papers. I pop dotted the sun and one of the clouds. Inside it says "Happy Birthday" from the Sentiment Sampler set. This little tornado is one of my favorite fun images! Maybe because when I get to deep cleaning the house, DH calls me his "white tornado", and he gets the heck out of the way!! lol  Do your happy dances, and as Darnell says, LITS, so dance like no one's watching!

You are just soooooo thoughtful! Thank you so much for sharing my 'wee bit of 'time in the limelight' with your readers :)

This card is way beyond cute. How can I not love it when we both know that polka dots always, ALWAYS rock!

Did you fussy cut the clouds, sun and the tornado...or are they dies? I'm thinking that this cute little tornado is really what you must be like when you are a woman on a mission!

Bev this IS adorable. I love the little scene you created and the mix of colours. That little red flower really pops and leads the eye from the tornado to the sentiment!!
