Happy Dance

I have been a fan of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for a long time now but this is the first time I’ve played along with them.

I saw their wonderful sketch this week and decided to use it to make another Tiny Dancer card. Those of you who read my blog regularly will probably remember that I have been making a set of cards using this stamp to give to a friend for her birthday.  It is just as well I started doing this so early, because her birthday is this week and I have still only managed to make 6!  If I had made them all the same it would have been quick and easy, but where’s the fun in that?!


I must admit that I found this sketch a little challenging but I am happy with how it turned out.


Ingredients :
Stamps : Tiny Dancer (Tiddlyinks), music notes wheel, think happy thoughts
Card : real red, black white, x-press it
Ink : white, stazon, memento black, real red
Other : 2 tags die, circle punches, copics, big shot, crop a dile, ret. ribbon, white bakers twine, dazzling diamonds

I didn’t have the idea of the record originally, I was just playing with different images and embellishments for that corner and it just “popped” into my head.  Don’t you love it when that happens!  The person I’m giving these cards to is much younger than me ….. I’m hoping she knows what it is!



  1. LOL at the 'record' comment - I still have a collection gathering dust. No turntable to play them on these days.

    Great card, your colouring skills are awesome! Your friend is going to love her birthday gift.

  2. This is fabulous, Kathy! Love the splash of red with the black or white. The image is adorable! Love all the details! HHS xxx

  3. Gorgeous my friend! I love all the music notes and the record with that image. I had to laugh at the record comment; we are so old! :)


I love comments!
