I AM a Dancer !!

I made this card using the lovely digi download 'Suzie the Dancing Squirrel' You can see her and her friends at the Digital Stamp Oasis
I coloured her with copics, 3D'd her and layered her onto a circle nestie :-) I added a pearl earring and necklace using liquid pearls :-) I smudged a bit so don't look too closely !!! :-)I also added lace stickles to her tutu :-)

The papers are from Basic Grey silver mirri card and coredinations,the 'Dancer' paper is by Karen Foster.
The frame was cut out on my cricut using coredinations and mirri card, I added pearls to the center of the little flowers on the frame :-)
I am entering this into the folowing Challenges :-

1 Mojo Monday Challenge which is asking us to use this fab sketch :-)

2 Daring Cardmakers Challenge which is 'Musically Inspired' well I did intend to stamp a manuscript but didn't in the end cos I made the mirror instead ! But you can't dance without music !! So it is musically inspired eh !! If you don't agree just delete me :-((

3 Charisma Cardz Challenge which is asking for 'Flowers, Lace and Pearls' well I ticked all those boxes :-)

4 Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is 'Sporting Chance' Well dancing is a sport, do you count ballet in there too ?? !! :-) If not just delete me :-)

I am sorry for the bad photo, I took loads and they all showed me in the mirror !! not a pretty sight !! lol. In the end I cut out a hole in a piece of black card and tried to take the photo through it !! You can still see my fingers and the lens poking through !! lol

Oh no !! I just went to see the photo on the blog and just noticed a bit of black card dropped on the circle ! It must have dropped there while I was cutting a hole in the card !! It's not there really just ignore it !! :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Simon Says New Family Dolls Stamps :-)

I made this card using a lovely brand new set of stamps, Simon Says Clear Stamps WE ARE FAMILY DOLLS Exclusive Set, aren't they gorgeous !! You can see them and lots more in the Simon Says Stamp store :-)

The card was made following Dawny's fab sketch on the Papertake Weekly Challenge Lovely sketch and one I will be using again !! :-)
The papers are just bits from my scrap box, the swirly red and black mulberry paper I've had for a couple of years !!
The flower was made by colouring plain cream prima flowers with red and gold brilliance ink pads, the black one was already black :-)
The sentiment was from the same set and the oriental letters are from hero arts.

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

What a lovey sunny morning it is here in Gozo ! Sunbathing weather ( Tho I don't do that !! I shadebathe :-))
Anyway on to this weeks Lili Of the Valley Challenge We are asked to make a card using the following gorgeous sketch :-)

Having just been to the UK I treated myself to a couple of Lili Of the Valley stamps so that I could make my GD cards using their stuff, only fair I thought !!
I chose this lovely 'Patch' which I bought online from the Glitter Pot isn't he gorgeous, I also bought a DCWV paper pad 'Pets' which I used for the circles on this card :-)The background flowers are a Whiff of Joy stamp. The paw print background is from Doodlebug I think !!

I coloured the image with copics and 3D'd him :-)
The paw print ribbon is from Meiflower, the sentiment is from the Clare Curd sentiment set and the frame is SU. The little bell under his chin is from papermania :-) I could do with some small dog tag charms ,,, need to go on a hunt ! Does anyone know where they might sell those ?? :-)
