Ever seen a ballet dancing bear?

Hi all,

I hope you are having a good weekend. After a week of temperatures in the 40's most days, it's finally dropped to about 25 degrees and we are more comfortable. Daisy is now sleeping in her own room again, which is great because by the end of the week the girls were keeping each other awake (well Daisy was keeping Martha awake by making her laugh).

I love dance images as I used to do a lot of dancing when I was younger and when I saw this image I had to get it. It's by Stamp Fairy and she is called Linda . The ballet shoes in the corner are a freebie download from the site. Over at the Stamp Fairy challenge blog, they are asking for a project that includes handmade flowers. I used a scalloped circle punch to make one flower and then cut strips of net and gathered them to make the other flowers. I was hoping they would remind you of tutus.

I love your card. It is not only the coloring. I love how you made the roses. The idea to make them look like tutus, this is tutu-cute!

Thanks for joining us at StampFairy this week!

This card is fantastic! I love how you've incorporated the ballet shoes with the main image - it looks like they are just hanging there for real! Your handmade flowers are pure genious - using tuille to make them mini tutus. What a perfectly delightful creation. Thanks for sharing it with us at StampFairy!
All the best,
Sharon, SF-DT
