Dream Dancer!!

Happy, Happy Wednesday my friends!  Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far!  I'm having a blah-blah day today me thinks.  Energy is low and a great migraine is in town it seems which makes everything that much harder, lol!  Aren't migraines just joyful? I mean they are just fabulous to have--I love my ears ringing everytime loud noises (ahemmm.....teens & dogs) erupt in my ears.  Fuzzy vision which makes my copic coloring look BEYOND TERRIFIC!  And the dizzy feeling, you know like the kind you put yourself in as a kid twirling around the floor like a dummy!  Yeah it's great and I get so excited when they come to visit me---it's like a party in my own body going on right now, how can you NOT enjoy that!!  NOT--bwahhahahaha!  So anywho I will carry on as best I can albeit more slowly than normal and get the stuffs done that needs to be done!  And if anyone else is WANTING to join my in my own migraine party....well....I might recommend you visit your local dr instead, hee hee!

Today I'm sharing a card with you for the 7 Kids Challenge Blog--the challenge is to create a SQUARE CARD! Easy peasy for me, lol!  This fabulous image is from La La Land called "Marci Ballerina" and she's the same image I did on all 4 of my NEW Copic Coloring Videos (click on my Tutorials/Templates tab under my blog banner up top and then scroll down to see NEW 2011 videos).  I adore these stamps, not only cute but so much fun to color!

Isn't "Marci" just a doll?  I love her and I love her in these pretty blues too!  The papers are older DCWV from an old paper pack I have with no name on it, LOL (sorry).  I created a ruffled trim by putting Scor-Tape on the back of my paper and then ruffling the ribbon by hand and attaching it to the tape--I love how easy this is to do.  The border was made with a MS border punch and I used a CB embossing folder to emboss that center panel.  A pretty bow topped with some Prima flowers were added and the small sentiment is part of a PTI set.  That top element is a NEW Marianne Designs die that I added Stickles to for sparkle and some rhinestones for bling--kind of like a ballerina tiara I think!

This cutie was colored with copics of course (you can watch the videos--see link above) and I used B06,B02,B00/E25,E31,E50/E11,E00/C1,C00,B0000,E50.  I added stardust stickles to her flowers and ruffle on her tutu.  Diamond Glaze makes her ballet shoes and eyes extra shiny! 

Now make sure to hop on over to the 7 Kids Challenge Blog and see the rest of the fabulous DT projects and join in to WIN BIG ;)!!

  8. So so sorry about your migraine, I suffer from them as well, I get the white lights and throwing up, and everything else that goes with them.

  20. What a cute card! The way she is colored is beautifull. Hope you feel better soon!

  21. Gorgeous card Suzanne, I love all the blues you used on that adorable image.

  22. I would guess that you could work magic with your Copics and any image, while under the influence of Fiorinal ... in a dark room ... curled up in a ball ... fighting a migraine! Your talent is endless, Suzanne.

    That little ballerina was brought to life in your videos, which are an absolute must for anyone interested in learning how to succeed with their Copics.

    Hope you feel better and rid yourself of that demon migraine.
