She Decided.....

Recently my daughter performed her first solo dance at a local competition, something that she has dreamed of doing for some time.  It was a rough road for her in the week leading up to it, not just with the increasing nerves that were building but she also caught a nasty virus just days before.

Come competition day though, there was no doubt in her mind that she was performing.  She made that mental choice to start living her dreams.  This proud mumma has been so inspired by her courage and determination it was really hard to hold back the tears of joy.

I have started my piece with a softer layer of stamped flowers. I have used grey ink as I wanted them to just sit in the background.  I have layered my piece up then using the diagonally cut papers and fussy cut flowers.  Fussy cutting is not a favourite task of mine, but sometimes it's just worth it right!

You're the man!

And I'm back with another Let's craft and create challenge.....this one is for all the wonderful men/boys in our lives- You are the man!

I've created a duo of cards using up some of my scrap pieces of paper.  I have embossed a plain piece of card, then actually cut this into two pieces, added some strips of scrap paper and some stamping over top.  I have then added some triangles, stapled them on for that extra texture and added my sentiment.  I thought this type of card would be good for a teenage boy, or young adolescent.
