The Dance

Hi everyone, my Mum's birthday today so "Happy Birthday Mum" Pity you had to go to the doctors on your birthday but good to finally get a bit more help about your medication.
I had a reasonably busy day, my DIL brought my youngest granddaughter over for me to look after. We hopped in the car and went to three different shops looking for a couple of pudding bowls as mine are all being used and my oldest daughter was coming over to make puddings for gifts. I had no luck, just wasted time and petrol running around. So, we ended up taking 3 of my puddings out of the bowls and wrapping them up so we could reuse the bowls. I got 3 loads of washing done and then left my granddaughter home with Katie and went and picked Mum up and took her to the specialist. We also went to the chemist where the staff were busy standing around trying to tie a flat bow. A real hoot. I showed them how I tie it and two of them just couldn't get a decent bow. One, actually bent down to tie it as if she was tying her shoe laces. So funny!! Took Mum home and then back home to help finish off the puddings. Katie had washed the dishes, brought the clothes in and also folded them so now only left with the saucepans the puds were in.
So after those ramblings, LOL, onto my card,
I've used SU Concord Crush as the basecard and also for the Reverse Wonky Rectangle Nestie diecut. White card for the other Nestie diecut which I stamped the image from Flonz stamps onto in SU Basic Black. I sponged with Tim Holtz distressed ink - Blue Jeans and coloured the image with Copic Markers. The little champagne glasses are from the same set. I realized afterwards that they actually have rings on them so thought that this card could be used for an anniversary or non-traditional wedding card as I've given her a blue dress.
The DP is from Cre8tiv Mini Stack and I've added lots of bling to accentuate the paper. Oh, I've just checked out the scan and it really doesn't show the bling but I used 15 all over the background - you'll have to take my word for it, looks very sparkly!
I am entering this into Make It Monday - challenge #67 - Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by and I've enjoyed the recent comments you have left. I wondered how long it would take for someone to notice my new profile picture. I have had my hair cut a little bit since then so not quite so long. The pic was taken at Shirley's house where we have Tuesday craft and I'm wearing my favourite colour!! Thought it was time to have a change.
Catch you tomorrow,
Take Care,
