Ballerina Birthday

Well the white stuff certainly fell in this part of the World last night! Although to be totally truthful not so much over my house but 15 miles down the road in Bridgend. My journey to work this morning was very eventful AFTER 8 miles on a clear Motorway - as I went up the slip road I thought I'd stepped through the wardrobe into Narnia! It took me longer to do the half mile from there to work than it did the previous 14.5 miles from my house!!!
The kids were a little bit miffed when I phoned them to tell them!

My thoughts go out to those of you who have had to deal with it for the last 3 weeks!

On to my card.......

This card is made for a friend in work. I've used Ballerina Anya from TGF and coloured her with Promarkers and a touch of silver gel pen. The polka dot paper is from DCWV Kids stack and Gemstones used for the backing. Can't remember where I got the sticky alphabet letters from but I'll have to find out as I'll need more soon!

I'm entering this card into 2 challenges, although I think I'm a tad too late for one but as there's no time on the blog I'll try anyway.....Cute Card Thursday asked for 'New', my 'New' is the ribbon, had it in my goodies from Santa :) The second challenge is Friday Sketchers, this was one of the most unusual sketches I've worked to - but a great challenge :)

Well must 'off' - need my beauty sleep ;)
Thanks for popping over...


  1. Hi Carol,
    I love the card - I be your friend at work will be thrilled to receive it.
    The snow up here in the Forest of Dean kinda brings things to a stand still but it's so pretty as long as you dont have to go out. Take Care on your way to work.
    Lots of Love - Ju xx

  2. Cute card hunny, not seen that Anya before. Hope your snow disappears quicker than ours, we've still got it laying around and it's nasty. Keep warm. Hugs, Squirrel xx

  3. Hi Carol,
    The lilacs on this card are fab. I love your take on the layout by making the card wider and the image is beautifully done.
