Happy Birthday Card

Hi everyone, hope your all having a good week so far.
A few weeks ago Jan the owner of Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Challenges asked me if I would be interested in make a sample card for one of their challenges. I said yes and she said she will let me know what card to make.
Sadly I didn’t received her e-mail telling me, I must make a Thank you card with autumn colours (I have some e-mail problems) and I didn’t had a card ready!
So Jan said I could make a card for this weeks challenge and the theme is “for the girls”! 
So here is my card:
I really love the paper and flowers!
I made this card for my friend’s sister whose birthday is coming up.
She is a very sweet girl and this stamp reminds me of her!
I used a Whiff Of Joy Stamp called: Fall Willow holding Baby Turkey
If you like it check out the Whiff of Joy shop, this stamp is on special!
I coloured her with the following Promarkers: (so by the way, I got 9 new Promarkers! So now I have new hair colours!)
Apricot and Spice – for the girl’s hair
Blush and Dusky Pink – for her skin
Lilac – for her top
Rose Pink – for the girl’s apron
Maroon – for her pants
Terracotta – for her shoes and the bird’s feet and feathers
Pastel Yellow – for the bird’s skin
Cool Grey 1 – for around the stamp (to make it look like shadow)
In the top left corner, I put three flowers and six pearl pins

The flowers from a different ankle. I asked my dad to take the pictures. (My dad takes stunning pictures!)

In the bottom right corner, I stuck four pink flowers and five pearl pins.
Another stunning picture taken by my dad!

My mother bought me a heart puncher to make a pattern, which I used here.
Then I add ribbon and lace at the bottom of the strip and a pretty bow that my mother made.

Photos of the Ballet Concert

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend!

I just quickly want to show you some of the Ballet Concert Pictures.
The concert was “Peter Pan” and I was a “Pearl” at the lake on the island and a “Lost Boy”, one of Peter’s friends and little Danika was a star at night when “Wendy” was asleep in her room.

Back stage – make-up.

Danika (left) with her best friend.

Me in my “Pearl” dress and Danika as a “Star”.

We had little crowns and a ribbon with a rose around our necks.

She is so cute!

The stars whore “star crowns” 

Me in my Lost boy Costume.

Act 1 – Wendy’s bed room

It is evening and Wendy is playing a card game called Solitaire

They where awesome!

Night falls 

A close - up picture of the dresses

The stars come out and Wendy falls asleep 

Wendy’s dream 

Wendy is woken by her regular visitor Peter Pan who asks Wendy to read his favourite nursery rhyme:
“Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With sliver bells and cockle shells 
And pretty maids all in a row”

Mary from the rhyme 

The silver bells

Cockle shells 

And the pretty maids all in a row
Then there was an interval for 20 min
Act 2 – The Lagoon
Peter Pan, Wendy and Tinker Bell arrive amongst the clouds above the lagoon.
They enjoy the lagoon characters before going on to the island.

The clouds

They made smoke come out when she came in and it created an amazing effect! 
My Dad took the pictures during the concert, without a flash light and I must say I think its stunning!

Then the sunbeams came

“sea pumpkins” , I just love there dresses



I love this picture!

The mermaids

And a close up picture of the mermaid’s dress 

The pearls

I love the way my dress was made.

And the beautiful sea princess!

Then another 20 min Interval

Act 3 – The Never Never Land
Peter Pan is happy to be back with his friends and all the familiar characters on the island. Captain Hook tries to capture Peter Pan but Peter Pan is once again too quick for him. The West Wind blows Hook off the island and everyone celebrates freedom form the dangerous Captain Hook:

The Lost Boys!


Peter Pan

Tinker Bell 


Red Skin indians 

Squaws  (Indian women)

Tiger Lily 

The Pirates 

Fish Sellers 

Captain Hook 

The West Wind that blows Captain Hook away.

The Grand Finale!

The big girls gave aunty Colleen a big bunch of flowers and photos, in a frame of this concert’s ballerinas.

Dear Aunty Colleen!
It was so much fun and very pretty! 
I hope you enjoyed the pictures, taken by my mom and dad 
Have a blessed week
