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.

Easel thank you card
Another easel thank you card, for the Festival Organiser this time, who works tirelessly to get everything ready beforehand, and throughout the days of the festival so that it runs like clockwork. Well done, Tracy!
The papers are new ones "Love Letters" from Trimcraft, which are glittered and varnished, and are really lovely irl. the layout is pretty straightforward, as the papers are quite busy. The LOTV image and the WOC flowers are coloured with copics, and the punched leaves are Bazzill Bling. Nesties created the circle and the tag, but the die-cut doiley is from Marianne. Everything is glittered with Stickles Stardust glitter glue, and the flowers are Glimmer Misted too. The organza ribbon is from my stash.
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.
