dancing with a song in my heart

Good morning all! Well I'm late today - would you believe it - I was at a BBQ last night and didn't get a chance to catch up with all the goings on in blogland in the evening - so its taken me a long time this morning! The BBQ was fab - we all sat indoors whilst my friend Sue's wonderful husband Geoff did the BBQ in the garage! A lovely evening spent with old friends and some new! And it was sure wonderful to not have to cook!

Anyway, onto todays card - over at the Mo manning site they have a GDT call on and whilst I know the chances are very slim, I thought I'd give it a whirl as I love the images so much. This week the challenge is to create something to do with dance - and since this also fits in with a few other challenges I thought I would go for it.

I followed a sketch from over at A gem of a challenge and followed the colour scheme from the ribbon girl and crafty sentiments design. The dance/music theme is current over at paperplay, mo manning and guylou Beland and the large bow works for digital tuesday's all tied up. I've used papers from echo park and flowers from WOC and some from my stash and coloured the image using promarkers.

This card will be sent to Lucy and Penny's nana along with photographs from the ballet show that she missed! They love their nana so much and always miss her!

So the challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
mosdigitalchallenge: let'sdance
A gem of a challengepinkgemchallengeblog: sketch
paperplaypaperplaychallenges: music
guylousinimitability:Music and dance
ribbongirls: aqua, blue and terracotta
CSDcraftysentiments: blue and orange
digitaltuesdaychallenge: all tied up.

That's all for today - back tomorrow with something useful - but something I'm not too sure about! Hope to see you then - thanks for dropping by today and for any comments you choose to leave!
