I think I really do need to get out a bit more - but little cogs began to turn and I remembered a Penny Black stamp that I've had for many years. Yesterday on WOYWW I was squeaking with delight at finally cracking masking (well, almost!) using the amazing Magi-film made by Woodware. So, I played a bit and ended up with this card - it reminds me a bit of the opening scene in 'The Sound of Music':
So, the sentiment 'Dance like no-one's watching' seemed especially appropriate! I love this PB hedgies stamp, it always makes me smile - especially the little one doing a pirouette (sneaked today's big word in there nicely!).
Oh man, I want to enter this into the current Penny Black challenge which is 'Create a Scene' (I only know this from Jules and a couple of other bloggy friends who hop in here) and have just hopped over to check the expiry date. At least one of the DT cards (especially Helen's) also uses a little hill and some sky! At the risk of being disqualified for plagiarism (second big word of the day) I'm still going to enter this card - mostly as it's a luck of the draw challenge, not the actual design and also 'cos I genuinely didn't know. Why me?! I suppose realistically there are only so many scenes you can create :(
So, here goes with the entry anyhow:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 167
- C6 plain white card stock
- Image - Penny Black 2361K 'Ecarte, Splits, Pirouette'

'Ere Sarn - who are you calling an old crock! I'll have you know, drawing myself up to full height and putting on a prim tone of voice, I was considered very young to have the op. I put it down to all the hurdling and such at school in the days before proper warm-ups were known to be important. That sounds so much better than old age :)) Di xxReplyDelete
For all the trouble you've had with those inks you really knocked those clouds out of the park. Beautiful! Love those hedgies and I am sure Helga will love this card.ReplyDelete
Boy all the stuff we know now we didn't know then. Isn't it amazing we ever got to be our age.
Well, you did it again. I confess I wasn't sure about that grass card yesterday but it works really well!! When I clicked on your blog today those little hedgies made me smile. Good Luck with the challenge. Dee xxReplyDelete

Hi Di - love your little scene and youa re quite right ... there are only so many scenic combinations of grass or snow with day or night sky lol! but your take on it is quite unique with the adorable danin' girls, the perfect snetiment to accompany it and the adorable fluffy clouds in the sky :-) Love your amusing chatty post style too.
