I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

(Now) Card for Four challenges

I made this card and tag for our lovely Dance Teacher Victoria. My hubby and I have been going to Ballroom/Latin Dance Classes once a week since January and LOVE IT!!!! Victoria is so patient with us as we are complete novices and in the short time we have been going we have improved soooooo much that come September we are moving up to Intermediate class (but thankfully still with Victoria). We can now dance Waltz, Tango, Quickstep, Foxtrot, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba and a little of Jive and Bosanova. We also have a Summer Ball this Saturday with men in Dinner suits and ladies in Evening gowns - can't wait :)

I could (of course) only use the fabby new stamp from Secret Crafter called "Rockability couple" as fitted perfectly. The "pearls" around the scallop circles are actually paint! They are made using the opaque paint pens by My Paper world from Secret Crafter - I'm sooo impressed with them as much more cost effective than using actual pearls but the result looks just as good.

This card and tag fit three challenges:-
  1. Passion for Promarkers #57 - My Favourite Thing (Dancing)
  2. Pollycraft #50 - Pinkalicious
  3. ABC - X for Exta Dimension
  4. Pocket full of Posies #1 - One for the girls (thanks Vicky x)

Hi Jane,
I'd love to go dancing with my hubbie, but sadly he's tone deaf, with two left feet & no sense of rhythm - & I'm being kind, LOL!! I don't fancy dancing with anyone else, unless George Clooney was a member of the local dance class!! Anyway, I love your card & I'm sure your teacher will love it too. Fab image, beautifully coloured & gorgeous DPs too. Thanks for joining us at PFP.
Hugs,

Andie xx
