OWH sketch 170

You know what? Spring has FINALLY arrived. The past two days have been gloriously warm and sunny, I've even taken our beginning sprouts for our container garden outside to get some sun. It's amazing.  The girls played outside yesterday - and ate outside - 2 snacks and lunch - for about 6 hours until I told them they had to go in for supper and baths. No one wanted to go inside!


MME everyday flair dp
Lizzie Anne Designs ballerina
kraft paper, random gems
ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon

I had this ballerina cut and colored (I did add some sparkles to her crown; sealed with glossy accents!), so I just found some coordinating papers and ribbon and it all fell together easy peasy. I think this card took less than 5 minutes to put together. Now, the next card I make will likely take 2 hours... :)

Have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. Isn't it nice when things just fall into place like this card did for you? She is a darling image and colored so nicely. That is a nice grouping of papers you went with also. My card making days are like yours, some cards five minutes other 2 days.

  9. I am so happy to hear that I am not the only one who can spend 2 hours on one card, and 5 minutes on the next! I would have thought this was a 2 hour card, since the elements work together so beautifully!!

  12. This is too, too cute for words! I can't decide whether I like the papers best or that darling ballerina! I guess all because you put it together so perfectly! What fun and what a smile that's going to bring to some little girl! It's trying to be spring here, in the Pacific Northwest, too. (But the one day we had sun ALL day, I complained it was too bright, lol)

  16. That little ballerina is SOOOO CUTE! I like the way you used orange to offset the colors, it really brought out the other colors on the paper! It's nice when a card comes together quickly.
