No card today, I seem to have been busy doing not a lot. My friend Anne bought me a fabulous birthday present - we went to see the Royal Ballet production of The Nutcracker. It was totally magical, the sets were wonderful, and of course the dancing was perfect.....
I must admit to sitting there watching and marvelling at the way the sugar plum fairies sank gracefully to the floor, then after watching a solo, they spring equally gracefully and elegantly to their feet to start dancing again - could I ever do that, even when I was young? Have I ever been able to unfurl my limbs and rise to my feet without an inelegant stumble?- How do those male dancers do all those twirly things, jumping about three feet in the air, turning a complete circle, landing then doing it again - about ten times in a row. How come they don't fall over all giddy and disorientated like normal people? That jump thing they do looks a bit impressive as well - you know, the one where they leap in the air, then sort of twiddle their toes together very quickly before hitting the ground again. Sigh, I blame my parents for never sending me to ballet lessons, they were fixated on the piano, if they had, I could have worn a little frilly tutu and twiddled my toes, and maybe, just maybe, even now, I would be able to get up from the floor without some assistance.......
Enough. On to the winner of the Letraset Autumn/Winter ProMarkers. The name that Mr Random chose this time is
Great tip when you have a card to make in a hurry Enfys. Love the soft effect, never seem to achieve it using too many colours. Love the sprinkling of Frantage, finishes it off beautifully. Gorgeous card and thank you for a chance of the new colours. Carolxx
