Inaugural Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party

It's been a while ...... not  idle but nothing blog post worthy.  Thought I would get one post in for July and Claire's Pyjama  Party was ideal, particularly as my shiny new stamps arrived last week.

One challenge is to use feathers.  I knew I would be up against some very clever card makers, so tried for the clever my self.  I am particularly slow at taking on new trends, witness the chevron thing.  Not something I have embraced but the lovely Bev at Uniko studios has come up with a stunning stamp set which I shall save for a future post.  In this case - feathers - could take it or leave it TILL I saw Funky Feathers - love at first sight.  I can see so many opportunities for this set to see ink.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white;  BB grey
Stamps - WMS Funky Feathers, Asian Gardens
Ink - Memento London Fog,  Grey Flannel;  SU Real Red;  Versafine Onyx Black
Gem - Kaisercraft

The other challenge was the Russian dolls (I am not trying to spell the proper name at dinner time).  I couldn't get the idea out of my head to use them in a slightly Scandinavian style.  Always been a big fan of the red and white pattern, so here is my version of the classic Danish pattern.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white, red
Stamps - WMS Say it Loud, Nordic Winter, You're a Doll
Ink - SU Real Red
Gem - Kaisercraft

So, just an peek at what I have been up to, apart from cards.  last week at my daughter's ballet school was a fund raising day for the Baden Clay children.  This post last year can't really convey the community disbelief or the coming together that has happened in the year since.  Alison's parents have custody of the girls and we regularly see them around the ballet school.  The eldest daughter has real ballet potential, and I hope this helps her through the next few difficult years.  

So back to the fund raising bit.  The girls could wear yellow and donate a gold coin for the opportunity.  We have nothing yellow, but there is a Pinterest world out there with any number of tutorials.  So my daughter chose the top hair piece, but the other is there for future reference.
