To doodle or not to doodle?

This week's inspiration over at La-La Land Crafts is "oodles of doodles" - I rarely doodle as I like symmetry and neatness too much!  Still, I had a go and ended up with this...

Yeah, I know I didn't get my dashes evenly sized nor in perfectly lines!  It's driving me nuts looking at it, lol!!  But I love the stamp which is the very sweet Christmas Bell Marci.  I also used the Snowflake Banner die (I used DCWV glitter cardstock with it)Christmas Hill Border die die and the fishtail banner die from the Stitched Elements die set.  The papers are by DoCrafts (I totally love these papers!).

Copics used:
Face: E000, E00, E21, R20
Hair: C03, C05, C09
Outfit: R00, R02, R05, R08, C03, C05, C09
Bell: Y21, YR23, YR27, B000, B01, B02

You can see the rest of the gorgeous design team inspiration over at the blog here.  I'll be back this weekend with my SugarPea Designs and Lili of the Valley DT posts.  TTFN!

I think the dashes like that work wonderful. It's sort of goes along with the snowflake theme, not one is the same as another and yet all perfect.
You made a very attractive Christmas card here Mary...certain to embellish any mantel beautifully!
Happy weekend,

Mary, I think we'd get along famously if we ever met irl. I too never doodle on my projects (because any time I've tried I've hated it and chucked it!). I do admire other crafters doodleyness though. Wonderful card!

Hello Mary,
I couldn't find the doodles....and then you mentioned the dashes.
It is the most gorgeous card, and I can understand completely why you are irritated with your free hand work as the rest of the card is so so perfect. Practice of course is the answer but I doubt you want to do it again, even though I know if you persevered you would excel.

Well your doodling looks a lot neater than mine ever would Mary. Fab card, love how you coloured her red coat and hat! Susan x
