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.

Christmas Cards take 2
Another couple of cards made last week, and delivered, both for friends from the ballet school.
Dps and toppers are from the new Papermania Christmas papers from The Range, with some more shiny red card from Brushstrokes in Wokingham. The photo doesn't show the red foiling printed on the papers and toppers, but actually it's really pretty. The MS branch punch is from Wendy at Stamps and Memories, and the poinsettias are from Jill at The Hobby House, who also supplied the stickles glitter glue. I'm on to my sixth bottle of the stuff in this current set of Christmas cards: I really should be buying it wholesale in large cartons! I've used some gold Glimmer Mist on the flowers too.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and for any comments you would like to leave.
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.
