Shall we Dance?

Afternoon peeps, hope you are not all freezing, boy was the frost thick this morning but thankfully the sun is peeping through at times here in Chorley. An early start for me this morning as had acupuncture at 9am, only another month to go hopefully.


Today a new challenge starts at Whoopsi Daisy and we would like you to

Punch It Out

I am afraid there is not much punching, only Martha Stewart´s fabulous lace doily punch,  as my arms, shoulders and back are still pretty bad, got a shock with phone call yesterday for an MRI scan at 6pm - yep on a Sunday evening, the good thing at least I didn´t have a sleepless night with the short notice!


I have used this sweet image from Sheet 420, she reminds me so much of our daughters when they were young and going to all sorts of dance classes including ballet. I have coloured her with my copics, inked around image and added lots of glitter with stickles. Papers are from Papermania´s Lucy Cromwell pad, gems and pearls from Mei Flower and lace and ribbon from stash. Sentiment was cut from the Cricut,  scroll die was borrowed from my daughter and am I glad I made good use of it when she visited for a few days, think I may have to treat myself to it. I always check out  Sweet Sketch Wednesday as I love playing with their sketches.

What a beautiful image Nicola, and a great take on the sketch. The colouring is gorgeous (as always!), and I love the swirl - lucky you, to have a Daughter who is a crafter!

Hope the MRI scan and acupuncture went well.
