MAWTT - Come Dancing

 Hello... Good Morning! Team B are back with this fortnight's challenge over at

and our lovely Hazel L is hosting this week... she has chosen the fab theme of

'Come Dancing'

So get your dancing shoes on for this challenge

Entries to be in by Wednesday 13th April 2016 at 6pm GMT.
Three entries per person and please no back-linking.

As I've been very short on time lately, I've used a Crafts U Print Decoupage Sheet to make a luxury tag... lots of layers on her skirt and on the fans. I've also used my new Crop-a-Dile Eyelet Setter which I bought with Birthday vouchers... love it so much and is easy to use!!

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's Strictly Come Dancing creations!! I hope you can join us for this fun challenge.

Sorry I've not been around for a while... mum has been very ill but is now improving slowly.  Also my new bed split in two! I'm gutted.... as only had it two months... in process of returning it for a refund... but they are SO slow at collecting it! Meanwhile, I've had to use my daughter's bed or recliner.. I'm in agony and just want to order a new bed... from different shop!! they are due to collect the broken bed today... fingers, toes, everything crossed that they take the blighter away!!!
Hopefully when I get my new bed sorted then I will be able to sleep better, and also do a wee bit of colouring or crafting to relax.
Will catch up with you all soon!
Love and hugs

So glad to red that mum is improving slowly, hope she will feel a lot better soon. Apologies but I had a quiet laugh when I read about your bed breaking many many years ago hubby and our German Shepherd were playing in the bedroom hubby jumped onto the bed the dog followed him and the bed end and legs broke.

Love the tag Sue, stunning rich royal colours and beautiful decoupage it is a luxury tag..

Sorry to hear your Mums been poorly Sue..Glad she is improving..We really need some sun to get our bones warm..At least it would help some.
Oh Sue your much wanted bed broken! Hopefully you will get it sorted and hope it was still under guarantee. The trouble is once you've had one like that, it doesn't give you hope if you get a replacement of the same make...
FABulous tag. GOrgeous colours and a pretty design.
I've eaten all my Easter Eggs! Just the insides to polish off.

She's a lovely lady Sue, love her dress and all those layers, a brilliant dancing lady. Love your blog header too, you probably changed it ages ago but dim-wit me has only just noticed. In fact, to tell the truth, I didn't notice, what I saw was the flashing Raspberry Road sign which alerted me to header changes! Apologies if this was changed like a year ago, but it is rather nice, Jx

A gorgeous tag Sue, such a beautiful image with lots of lovely layers.
Sorry to hear that your Mum has been poorly, I hope she is soon completely recovered.
How annoying that your new bed split in two, I hope they collected it so that you can get on and order a new one.
Take care.

Kathleen said...

Totally fabulous card, love what you have done with the dress, those layers look stunning, brat colours too.
Glad Mum is improving but shocked to hear about your new bed, where is quality control these days?
Pretty well at he moment, thank you and Easter was Easter, spent hours searching for my egg but it must be very well hidden.

Take care.

Hi Sue,
what a gorgeous tag, and so wonderfully designed also.
Great for the theme.
So sorry to hear your Mum has not been well.
I do hope she is feeling much better now.
Oh my word that is not good about your bed you don't expect that do you.
It must be very horrible for you all the complications at this present moment in time.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Judith said...

This is gorgeous Sue - it looks so dimensional and gorgeous colours. So sorry to hear your mum hasn't been well and your bed problems too! - it never rains but it pours as they say, hopefully things will be on the up for you and you can get back to crafting and a bit of relaxation. Sorry I haven't been around much these last few weeks. my parents in law have both been poorly and time just seems to run away - hopefully we'll both get back ontrack soon! hugs Judith x

WOW this is gorgeous Sue! I love that fabulous image and all of the layers, beautiful colors too! I hope you have a nice weekend!
Big hugs, Tammy

Claire Grantham said...

OMG Sue, my jaw dropped when I saw this. The wonderful layers in her skirt - again a card from the DT with serious movement. I love Flamenco, many years ago for my 21st birthday my parents took me to see Joaquin Cortez and it has been on permanent replay in my brain! Hope you are doing well my friend. It's warmer here in NYC, starting to feel like spring. Cx

SusanLotus said...

I hope youy mum is feeling better now.
Bad luck with your bed... Hope you get a new one quickly.

Lovely Flamenco card!

Happy holiday to you!
