My Crafty Heart - DT Card - Dancing Willow

I can't believe it's Monday again! The weekend passed by so quickly. I hope you all enjoyed some sunshine! I went to stay with some friends and we went to see Sister Act at Liverpool Empire - it was a really good show! Fab singing, lots of humour... so I had a really nice relaxing weekend. We watched the end of Eurovision - how embarrassing for UK!! but I suppose it was better than 'nil points' LOL. But we started to remember some of those wonderful Eurovision oldies... Une Banc, Un Arbre, Une Rue and Ding-a-dong.... remember... ah they don't make them like that anymore!! 

Anyway, here's a card that has my favourite Whiff of Joy image called 'Dancing Willow' and she's available from My Crafty Heart.

I took a load of photos but the colours don't look as nice as in real life... hate it when that happens!

Flowers and Handbag Charm

I love this paper - it looks like lace! I've used my favourite 'delicate vine' die and my favourite Prima Rose trim... I've coloured Willow with Promarkers and a touch of Prisma Pencils for shading.

all available from My Crafty Heart.....

STAMP: Whiff of Joy - 'Dancing Willow'
PAPERS: Basic Grey - 'Little Black Dress'
DIES: Memory Box - 'Delicate Vine'
FLOWERS: Prima Rose Trim - 'Natural' and Prima Miss Godivas - 'Pebble'
GEMS: Hero Arts - 'Small Mixed Gemstones'
HANDBAG CHARM: 'Accessories Charm Collection'

The LOTV Sentiment is new. I've had the 'Dreamy Days' Sentiment set for ages but also wanted this 'Happy Circular' set .. it has always been out of stock when I went over to buy. I had a look the other day when they had 10% off and Yay! they had it in - so grabbed it !!! :-))

I've coloured Willow with Promarkers and a touch of Prisma Pencils for shading.

Don't forget My Crafty Heart has 10% discount on all Designer Pads and all Tim Holtz Distress Inks... until 9.00 am GMT on 1st June.... !!!

Hi Sue,
I love your Dancing Willow, she looks so happy! Wonderful colouring as always Sue and I love that paper too and yes, they are so lovely and can see your wonderful colouring on the piccies Sue and love the way you put the handbag charm with those flowers...wasn't it a shame about Eurovision...we always say we could have Robbie Williams up there for the UK and he still wouldn't get many points! I bet there would be loads of DPAs atending meetings if they had where's the Yellow Pages...Big Hugs, Teresa xxx
