About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Third card for The East Wind challenge 2

This is the third card I made today and also the third card I am adding to the challenge at The East Wind

I have made the background paper buy printing out lots of the dancer which I found on google.    I have printed out The East Wind Digital stamp "Abby the Tap Dancer" which was made especially for Tanya on the facebook group.  I bought her as she looks a bit like my youngest grand daughter Brianna who also loves to tap dance.  Have coloured her with markers, layered onto purple and then onto the pattern paper.  Added green flower brad and two purple rhinestone flowers.  Printed out verse I also found on google onto white and then purple and attached on top.  Attached all to green card.  The scanner has scanned the rhinestone correctly, they are purple.

The verse says
When I tap
I make music with my feet
Shiny metal taps
Help me hear the beat
Learning to dance this special way
Makes me happy every day.
