A Little Girl
There once was a little girl - who grew up and became a wonderful ballerina! The theme of the challenge beginning today over at Stamps R Us Challenges, is...."there once was a little girl". You have two weeks to submit your entry and could be chosen as the winner of A Day for Daisies images (our wonderful sponsor)! So head on over there today.
This is NOT ME - for a couple of reasons. First of all, I'm not a ballerina, have never been a ballerina, and will never BE a ballerina! I always wanted to be one, but was usually too busy playing baseball, shooting BB guns, catching tadpoles, and stuff like that, so just never had the time to do it! I do think it's amazing what a ballerina can do and I love watching. The second reason this is so "not me"....I just don't do very many "girly" type cards and am never good at all the flowers and fluff, etc. BUT, to your amazement (AND MINE), these little flowers on this card are handmade!!!!! Since we live so far from any type of craft store, I just can't buzz over and pick up some pretty flowers like you see on a lot of cards. I decided to make some after viewing several tutorials. These are SUPPOSE to be Rolled Ribbon Flowers....mine are more TWISTED ribbon flowers! LOL! What can I say - except I was very glad to get them completed and they didn't come undone and go flying all over the place before I could get a picture taken! The image from A Day For Daisies is called Pink Ballerina. The image is water colored on some sort of off-white watercolor paper to give a little contrast between the image and the ribbon and flowers.
Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and check out Stamps R Us Challenges today.
