It's a spotty dotty day at MAWTT

Good morning all

Hands up who's seen the sun this year - not me lol.  This has to be the wettest most miserable, grey start to any year ever!! - and it's getting colder too.

We had a lovely start to the year with a New Years Day wedding- the daughter of our very best friends.  But even that was  a grey and miserable day, I got hardly any photographs and not a single decent one of me (nothing new there!!) - it was just so dark that my black dress looked like a v neck jumper and my flouncy facinator/hat was like a shadow on my head!! - Still it was a lovely day and a very happy way to start off the year 

It's also time to kick off the new year at

Moving Along with the Times

and our first challenge of the year is an easy one

Spots and Dots

My card is one that I made at Christmas 
- in my last minute rush to finish my Christmas cards
it's a large 8 x8 inch card 

Here's what I did...

Image - A LOTV James Bear from an old set of toppers I still had
Papers Dovecraft Christmas papers
Snowflake die - Whimsy stamps
Snowflake border - memory box
Sentiment - from Nordic Christmas stamp from Crafters Companion
Jewelled embellie - creative expressions
Black card and Ribbon from my stash

We'd love you to play along with us this week at MAWTT - hope to see you there

I think this is a great use of dots and snowflakes, it's cheerful and sophisticated at the same time. I love that little sentiment as well, that's awesome. x Jessie

Love James the bear!! He's such a cutie. Gorgeous card and love the colours. This weather reminds me of Larry Grayson, who always used the opening statment 'What a grey day!!' Hugs, Carol S.xx

I love this gorgeous big card...lots of space to show off the pretty DP layers and the super cute James bear! Those snowflake die cuts are fabulous too :-)

It's a shame the weather is so awful but I'm glad you still had a wonderful time at the wedding.
