Happy Dance

Here's a card I did for 2 challenges, the sketch over at the Cupcake Craft Challenges blog and today's Limited Supply challenge on SCS (Paint It Black). The adorable image is from Penny Black, it's called Spring Dance. Well since it's not Spring, this little girl is doing a Happy Dance. I'll be sending it to a friend's daughter who placed 3rd all around in her gymnastics meet last weekend. I have no gymnastic themed stamps, but I'm sure Nichole feels really happy by her wonderful accomplishment so I thought this image would be perfect. I used a Gelly Roll pen on the flowers in her hair and her little bunny slippers, so they are very sparkly in real life.

I can't believe it's been over a week since I posted ... what a bad blogger. Oh well, things have been a little crazy with my job these days. Plus some of the things I'm creating I don't want to post because they're being sent to people who look at my blog.

I'm hoping to spend some of the upcoming weekend making cards with all the fun sketches that the Cupcake Crew created for Taylor's 1 year Cupcake Sketch anniversary. You've gotta go check it out, if you haven't already.

Oh and here's a picture of my dog Riley. We got 3 inches of snow here on Tuesday. Being from Maryland, that's not really a big deal ... but apparently the last time it snowed here was 6 years ago. And let me tell you, they don't really know how to handle the snow down here. All the public school systems closed Monday night before a single flake hit the ground ... lol. Oh well, better to be safe than sorry. Anyway, Riley is definitely a snow dog.

Beautiful the colors!
I know all about the snow...we got 8 inches here in central NC and being from northern VA, people down here freak out about white flakes! They don't know how to handle it, much less drive in it. LOL! I do miss seeing it though and enjoyed the few days we had it.
