I had a nice surprise yesterday, an award from my blogging bud Jane, I was so chuffed I was smiling from ear to ear.



So now I have to say 5 things about myself and pass it on to 5 others, keeping the smiles going.
  1. My real name is Vicky, my Nan's name was Doris (Dolly) that's where the blog name comes from.
  2. I was born and have lived in London all my life.
  3. I'm afraid of the dark.  That's where living in London helps, it's never completely dark!
  4. I wish I could draw.
  5. I bought a Bind it all 2 weeks ago and haven't got it out of the box yet!
I'm passing this award on to 5 bloggers whose blogs don't just make me smile but green with envy ;) lol
  1. Lynda for her brilliant and original designs
  2. Victoria for her great eye for colour and gorgeous colouring
  3. Fink for her whimsical cards and fun blogging style
  4. Chris for her elegant use of white space
  5. Dotty Jo  whose fabulous blog I've only just discovered

  4. oooh thanks Dolly! Sorry don't think I can get my head around calling you Vicky after all this time!

    Your card is lovely as usual and so different from what I'd expect from the sketch. I wish I had your eye for design.

  7. Hi.. 'smee again.. Just posted it all on my blog. And I forgot to say earlier what an exquisite card this is.. Absolute corker!! Amongst other things, those holly leaves are the most perfect holly leaves I've ever seen! Are they die-cuts? Do you know what system they're from.. Quickutz, Sizzix, etc? Or did you buy them like that? They're lovely! So is the rest of the design.

    Hugs,
    Chris xx

    Your card is out of this world! It is totally adorable.

    I've been a little snowed under with other stuff to be able to join in with all the Challenges I love so hopefully when I get myself organised I can get back to joining in the fun at ICS too - I love Dawns sketches!

    Love Lynda xxx
