Alison's Stamping When I can Challenge


I love Alison's blog, I don't know where she gets the time to keep up with everything she does and also keep us current on what is going on in blogland. This week she put out a challenge to make a card for a child, well what little girl would not love a Dancing Ballerina, doesn't she remind you of the dancing hippos' in Fantasia. I used my copics to color her in and of course she needed bright red lipstick and nailpolish. when I was done it was missing something and then I realized she needed some bling.


These are some of the cards that I had made for my niece, I mailed them out Monday so she should have by the end of the week.
