The Cutest Ballerina

I have to admit that this is just the cutest ballerina in town! I absolutely love this little bear in her tutu. Isn't she just too adorable for words.

I coloured her just for the fun of it. I couldn't wait for the day that I had a specific occasion to need this image. Once she was coloured up I made a birthday card for a colleague's niece who's turning eleven. I hope she loves her as much as I do.

A little confession here... I coloured two of her, one in a pink dress and one in a green dress. I'm about to go and make something with the other one. Just because they are so cute.

She was coloured with my prismacolor pencils and blended with sansador. Then cut out with nesties, and mounted on 3D pads. The sentiment is by Stampingbella and also cut out with nesties. The border was done with my brand new Fiskars border punch! I don't know for the rest of you, but here in Jo'burg, the good quality punches are very expensive. But I wanted it so I had to spend the money.....

I put lots of glitter on the dress and shoes and the background paper. I am not sure the photo does it too much justice, but some of it can at least be seen.

I heard such devastating news earlier today. There are 55 Pilot Whales beached at Kommetjie beach in the Cape, here in South Africa. People are trying to get them back into the sea and keeping them alive with water. Apparently there are more coming ashore. They don't know yet what caused this. It's terrible, I wish I was there to help, but it's pretty far from Jo'burg. At least the sea rescue people are there doing something. I just hope they will all be okay. My heart just breaks when I hear of something like this.

Anyone feel like a bit of blog surfing, go see what everyone got up to for the latest Bella challenge. It was a sketch again, there are some gorgeous creations to ooooh and aaah over. Then Elzybells is celebrating their blog-a-versary, yip it's one year old in June, and they're planning all sorts of exciting stuff during the month.

Oh one other thing I wanted to share, my mother's been crocheting flowers for me, to use as embellishments. I can't wait to use one or two, she's nearly done with them. Hopefully soon I will post a card with a homemade, handmade crocheted flower on it :-))

Have a great weekend. Till later.....

Hi Meahni

Wow you colouring is just fantastic and how cute is this wee ballerina..

So sad to hear about those poor whales - they just get so disorientated and tired..
It happens occasionally here in Scotland..
