Be Free to Be You...

This week at
we were allowed to choose an image from our wonderful sponsor


I asked for this fabulous lady from Beccy's
"Dancing Queen" collection.
The Pine forest background is also one of Beccy's,
She has a very generous "Freebies" section
on her blog.


I printed the background
*after tweaking the colour in my graphics programme*
and simply matted and layered it onto co ordinating card stock.
I used a Tattered Lace "Ornamental Tuck in" die to make my lace panel, 
and a sentiment stamp from Hunkydory
to create a banner/tag.


I coloured the main image with promarkers , 
added glitter to her leotard and leg warmers...

and set her free to run through the forest...
spreading her "sparkle"
An Icy blue ribbon bow to finish and I soooo
want to be her right now :D

 Complimentary colours for the image using promarkers,
stamped sentiment, silver organza ribbon and sequin thread

A Good Heart.

EDIT: 18.35 26th June 2017
The winner drawn to receive ROSA is

Today is the start of 

courtesy of Emma and Magaly
a small celebration to honour  "... all the so called monsters
and aberrations who are often kinder than the humans in the 
stories they bring to life"

"Rosa" the doll that got left behind

The Wolf's Heart

When the Moon is full and overhead
Smart children hide beneath their bed.
The hearts of Mothers fill with dread,
lest the morning shines on newly dead.

For while the Menfolk drink their ale
the Moon, like Death, gleams cold and pale.
A lonely child eats bread that's stale,
And the Werewolves wander in the Dale.

Sometimes *though it is very sad*
They come upon a lass or lad,
Who's circumstances seem so bad
that even for the company of Wolves they are glad.

Whatever happened that cold night
They left no sign of terrified flight.
A flurry of snow, the only sight
that hinted at the poor child's plight.

Now the She-wolf sits to stitch and sew,
And watches as the children grow.
Her "Mother's Heart" is all aglow
...She would never leave a child to die in the snow.
...

So Rosa needs a new home. 
She has been stuck here with me ...
waiting ...
for over a year, and this seemed like the perfect
 opportunity to put her up for adoption.

If you can find a place in your heart(and home) for little Rosa
just leave a comment  and I will randomly select a winner on the 26th :D
