My Crafty Heart DT Card - Let's Dance

Hope you've got your sunglasses at the ready... because this is certainly bright and bold !!! but hopefully it will cheer you up in this dull and miserable weather here in the UK!! Isn't this little lady gorgeous!! You just know she has a mega bubbly personality - I think she has a look of Kylie Minogue about her - well what she might have looked like as a toddler anyway !!! LOL

I decided to go with a pink and lime theme with this card and have used Kaisercraft and Prima papers - see below for details. I wish I'd done the pearls a bit different bottom right but hey ho! never mind. In fact I've got very carried away with the pearls haven't I - ROFL - and also not quite sure why her hair is silver - I think it must be my fever with this cold - it's sending me a bit loopy !!!!

Ah well, it's Saturday again - so I really hope you can all relax and have a lovely weekend. It doesn't look like the weather will be improving any time soon, so I will be staying indoors and keeping warm! Today we had thunder and hail that covered the whole street in ice. I've never seen anything like it - there was also a river running down the road - I'm actually wondering whether we should trade our car in for a boat !!!! LOL
Take Care
Love Sue xx

What a cutie! This image is adorable; she looks so happy but Kylie Minogue as a toddler? Not sure... :-) Anywho, a very pretty, cheerful Spring card!

Teresa - My Crafty Heart said...

Oh Sue, you did make me chuckle! She DOES look like a little Kylie!
I'm sure your cold isn't sending you loopy and I really like her shade of hair:) Your colouring is superb and I love how you mixed those papers too, they look fab together and love all the pearls too! I am singing to myself now "I should be so happy" - but not quite like Kylie though! Hope your cold goes soon hun, enjoy the weekend, Big Hugs, Teresa xx

Hi Sue it has been an awful week here weather wise in Stevenage. I got really soaked to the skin on Thursday, then had to sit in a restaurant having a meal. Lol!!! You have done some awesome cards while I have been away. This one is adorable. Fab colouring and layout.


DesignerDiva said...

Sue you do make me laugh but I think you have got it right - a boat would be more useful lately!
This little girl is so adorable! Love your pretty colours (even her grey hair lol) I like how you have done the pearls too so don't beat yourself up Mrs!
Beautiful papers, embellies and everything really!

I'm off to a Nepalese restaurant tonight so I've put the voice on record - I love it!
Big Hugs Laurie xx

Hi Sue, well I brought my sunglasses as you suggested
Love the card and love the sweet image, I would so love some but must put a short hold on spending as i have spent far toooooo much in the past month...I wish I enjoyed food shopping as much as craft
I think her hair is fab, after all mine went grey last year at the age of 21 :) she is just a little younger thats all :0
Hugs Mau xx

Wowzer what a wonderful card, although I can hardly see it through my sunglasses LOL!!! I love bright cards, they cheer me up!! And I love anyone who goes overboard with embellies LOL, gives me the comort that I'm not the only one on this planet who overboards regularly :o)))

cotnob said...

Gorgeous, bright and cheerful card Sue, I love all your little pearl details and the happy image.
Have a good week.

Unknown said...

Hi Sue, what a wonderful card! Love the colours - they certainly are cheerful on the dull, drizzly day that we have today.

Wonderfully cute image (and I sometimes am tempted to go for a different hair colour than the norm, but generally chicken out - so you're braver than me!) and perfectly coloured.

I think the pearls are a great touch as well.

Hope you are feeling better soon.
