A DANCING MAID..


Hello Everyone...

Friday night here and very very cold...roads are closed down the South Island and the ski fields are open...luckily we don't get snow on the Eastcoast up North..but we do get the chilly wind puffing up our way.

Have a card to share today with a gorgeous image from The Graphics Fairy...

A Dancing Maid....


The beautiful vintage papers are from Michele R Designs...not that you can see much of them....and the butterfly is cut from the same papers....



A close up of the pretty image...I loved her green dress...hence the green bow using ribbon from my stash...I think it came off a bouquet of flowers.





Cheese cloth [gauze] and a pink paper doily were added behind...and tiny vintage floral heart buttons down the side..



Ripped the papers instead of cutting and distressed the edges with inks.
A pink rose ribbon border and I was happy..

Going to enter these challenges if ink linkz works today...

Crafting By Design  [anything goes]

Divas By Design  [Ribbons and flowers]

Penny's Paper Craft   [Buttons.. Butterflies or bows]

Moving along with times    [Girls just wanna have fun]

That's it...thanks so much for stopping by...school holidays have started today.. 2 weeks Winter break...so the boys will be happy with that...they have their Dad home with them for those 2 weeks and hopefully the girls will get some time to come and play too..

See you tomorrow..

luv CHRISSYxx

Brrrrr - hope you manage to keep warm, Chrissy! If I manage to get a job in NZ (keep your fingers crossed for me - have a second interview on Sunday!), hubby will be a regular visitor to the ski slopes in NZ!

Your card is gorgeous - I love how you used up items to make your creations so beautifully!
