Well Hurricane Bertha decided to bypass the Gloucestershire area but we have had torrential rain and a few claps of thunder but all is well.  
I had major problems with Blogger yesterday it just would not open up any of the blogs but it appears that today it feels like playing ball so I thought I would post one of my 'Ballerina' cards that I have made over the last few days.  I noticed on Facebook that Morgans Fae World had a special 25% off her images so I treated myself to the set of 'Dancers' available HERE
I chose the title Ballerina Mine as these images reminded me of the song by Nat King Cole.
I bought the set of four and have made cards with two of the images I will try and post the other one tomorrow.
I have used a colour combo of yellow and brown, the papers are SU Dotty paper all mounted onto Kraft card.  The image I coloured with Graph It Markers then used my 18ct Gold Leaf pen around the outside, I then mounted her onto both yellow and Kraft card, I punched the flower circles out with my SU punches and added a couple of resin Dahlia flowers, I added a sentiment that I got from Anna Marie Designs also some ribbon and yellow organza bow topped with a yellow button
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks to all who have taken time out to visit my blog and to those who have left me a comment, I do try to repay everyone's kindness but it might take a little time so please bear with me as I know how lovely it is to receive comments from other crafters.
Have a lovely day.

We had very high winds and rain here yesterday but not as bad as other people I am pleased to say.

Thinking of all those worse off than us.

What a beautiful ballerina girl, and you used such sweet colors for her and your background. thank you for sharing this at Seize the Birthday!

MaryH said...

So glad to learn your area didn't have any problems with the torrential rains & all the wind I've been hearing about in some of the UK areas. I'm having the same problem with blogger today that you describe having earlier. Just sits & spins and nothing opens. This is a another 'feel great' image. She is dancing for joy, and your golden colors are so right for this dancer. I'm glad you gave yourself a treat, and then shared all the loveliness with us bloggers! Hugs

Glenda J said...

Absolutely lovely! Fabulous details. Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday!
