We're famous!!

Hi Ladies...

Happy Saturday to you all!

Today I'm here to show you a card that I made for All Dressed Up a little while ago - and it's now featured in this month's Complete Cardmaking magazine (out now)...  along with cards from the other lovely DT ladies..... soooooooo we're famous!! anyone need an autograph?? hehe!  

This is one of my favourite of all of Wendy's fabulous designs...  if you haven't met here before, this is Abi Ballerina - and she's actually a FREEBIE and can be found HERE.

I like to make her the real focal point of a card.... so I colour her with my copics, and then I use a CAS layout.  I did print our her skirt a second time though and fussy cut it, then added it 3D (with sticky pads) onto the first image.  The die I used for the square is a Lil' Inkers Stitched Square (my regular followers will know this is I think I've nearly worn it out - I've used it so much!)  

Then I used some of Wendy's lovely All Dressed Up digital paper scraps run through with my MFT Fishtail Die - and also used one of my number dies to create the SIX in glitter card... 

Of course, a ballerina had to have sparkle..... and as you can see, I added loads!  

Do watch out for the Complete Cardmaking magazine.... it's got lots of lovely All Dressed Up designs from the other DT ladies.... AND there are two exclusive images that you can get your hands on too!  

Hope you have a lovely day.... I'm off to Matalan to stand there for a few hours promoting the children's hospice lottery.......  wish me luck!! 

Big hugs

So pretty !
Do you have a supplier in the UK for the lil inkers dies, I got the square from America but the shipping was silly price and I'd love more.
Good luck with your fund raising.

This is one of my favorite images from Wendy too. Love the big number on here and it's a beautiful way to tell someone happy birthday!

Well you know how I feel about this gorgeous card..but I don't mind telling you again. She's the sweetest little ballerina on the planet, especially when you've coloured her so prettily. I LOVE the sparkle on her tutu, it seems to turn her from beautiful to incredible! xxx

Thanks for your lovely comments ladies... and Christine - you can now get Lil' Inkers Dies from a company called Make the Day Special in the UK - but they sell out quite quickly. Hope that helps..

First of all, congrats on being published which is always a huge thrill.
This is my favourite All Dressed Up image and you have done Abi proud. I love the pink and the gorgeous colouring. The simple banners and number are all the embellies needed for this beautiful card!
