Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 22, Day 3 :)

Day Three -- woohoo! I have a bigger project I'm working on with some yummy PKS face stamps(which I will hopefully be able to post before the end of the week - if not, watch for it on my blog), but today I needed to make a card for my daughter. I don't make cards for my children very often, but I know she will love this one. Tomorrow is her dance recital and she has worked very hard for this day! We switched dance studios this year and we couldn't be more pleased with the strides she has taken in becoming the beautiful ballerina (and tap dancer) she is today! Okay, okay - I'll stop gushing over my children. :) I'm a proud mama, what can I say?

This sweet little ballerina is from the "Twinkle Toes" cartridge and the face is from the PK-640 Princess Face Assortment. (I promise I do have more face stamps than this... you can definitely tell the Princess faces are some of my favorites! I reach for them a lot!)

The sentiment on this card was handwritten by me. I'm like most people, I don't really care for my handwriting, but sometimes you have to write exactly what you feel. I don't have a sentiment stamp that worked for this occasion, so handwritten it is! (The roses and leaves are made by me, as well.)

Supplies used:
PK-640 Princess Face Assortment
Dancing Girl (all patterned papers) by Fancy Pants
Ribbon by Offray
Bling and Pearls by KaiserCraft
Crocheted Ribbon by Hero Arts
Cardstock by Bazzill
Ink by Memento
Stickles/glitter by Ranger

Thanks for checking out my creation today -- don't forget about the chance to win!

To be entered into the drawing please leave a note on this blog post and also on my blog. You will have five days to leave a note, so that is five chances to win! :) I will use to pick which day and post for the winner. I will draw and announce the winner on my blog on Saturday June 11th.

Have a great Wednesday!
