A very warm welcome to my blog, which is mostly about card-making, a bit about work and family, and a few odds and ends. I am fairly new to this blogging lark, so please bear with me if I make some glaring errors.
I'll be delighted if you would like to become a follower, so please leave me details of your blog, as I'd love to visit.
Just love the pink, green and burgundy colour combo for the Pink Gem Designs challenge this month - it's really one of my favourites. The sketch, which is just a beautiful layout, is by the ultra talented Bev, for the Lili of the Valley.
The image is by Magnolia of course, from Craftsulove and I really love this little cutie: she's coloured with copic markers from Wendy at Stamps and Memories, who also supplied the nesties. The paper is Papermania Henbury Lane, which has to be one of my new favourites, with coredination cardstock from A Maze of Memories, who have the most enormous selection of plain cardstock ever! The little sentiment, the larger flowers, ribbon, gems and leaves are from Hobbycraft, with the little roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, with stardust Stickles providing the glitter.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog, and for any comments you would like to leave. xx Jill
Welcome to the Ballerina Craft blog.
Well you'll find lots of them on my blog, as I often make cards for dancers, having been a ballet teacher for more years than I care to remember. You can find former pupils of Woodley School of Ballet dancing in ballet companies in Britain and in Europe, singing and dancing in West End Theatres, on TV or touring the UK, or on cruises in far flung places, with several former dancers teaching at home and abroad.
I'm now semi-retired due to health problems, but still find time to teach dance and craft, as well as have fun with our seven grandchildren. I have been married to my dearest husband Joe, for over 43 years, and we have three wonderful children, who are all happily settled with their own families, and we also have a dear step-grand-daughter, with her own beautiful bundle of joy, and a seriously cute toddler, so family life takes up a lot of time! The beautiful Lladro ballerina above was bought for me by pupils and friends for the Ballet school's 25th Anniversary in July 2007.
