Dancing Ballerina

I had the most wonderful Wednesday this week.  It was rainy and overcast and the day before I had shovelled 2m of mulch on to our gardens.  So I decided that Wednesday was cardmaking day.  Best thing I actually felt a little creative.  I packed the daughter off to school.  Lit a scented candle put Foxtel (pay TV) on to music.....Easy listening and had Elvis crooning and other songs of that era playing.  Yes, I was singing too and no one could complain. :-)  Then I dug out some things I have wanted to put on to cards for a while now and made 6 cards over the day.  This is one of them.  Then to top the day off hubby came home and said let's go to the pub for tea.  Brilliant.

I really enjoyed making this card all items from Blue Edge Crafts.  Started with Pink Linen Textured card stock, white cardstock then a layer of the Past Spodia Combo paper.  I stitched around the edges of the two layers.  Then added this lovely Dancing Ballerina die cut shapes and finished with a 'something to celebrate' white sticker and a bit of bling.

Thats me for this week.  Wishing you all a good weekend and see you Monday.
No major plans here as the rain seems to be hanging around.  So more inside work.
