Seeing spots...

Another week gone and another Saturday dawns with a new challenge starting at Sweet Stampin'. Just over a week left until September.....unbelievable how quickly this year is passing by!
The challenge theme this week is a lovely easy one...spots/stripes or both!
I used a cute LOTV stamp, coloured the little lad with my copics and die cut with a stitched rectangle die. The background was made by layering strip(e)s of dotted paper over a piece of dp with large spots on it. I added twine, 2 tiny tags (also LOTV) and a few dotty buttons....simples!
Thank you for visiting and also, lovely followers thank you so much for all the kind and encouraging comments you does mean a lot to me, I read every one of them and always try to reciprocate in kind!
I hope you'll have time to join us at Sweet Stampin' this week, it really is an easy challenge,just remember to stamp something too, and we do have a fabulous sponsor this time - All Dressed Up - who wouldn't want to win some of these lovely images??!!
Have a great weekend
