You are" TU-TU" sweet!

Hi everyone!
Yay, it's almost the weekend!
This has been one of those weeks were everything landed all at the same time, each day ~ whew!  Although little man had school today,
 I was grateful for today's day off for my High School girls ~ 
one less stop and a little time to craft :)

When I spied this absolutely adorable little Abi Ballerina 
(a freebie from All Dressed Up digi stamps), I knew I had to color her up :)
My girls were little ballerinas from ages 3-6 respectively, then promptly switched to other sports like gymnastics, ice skating, soccer, etc!
We always encouraged our 4 to try something - anything - you just never know where your interests will lie if you don't give it a whirl!
I still carry the memory of them dancing in The Nutcracker every Christmas :)

Here is the front of the card:

And here is the inside:

I am getting a bit of a head start on some special occasion
cards I needed to make.  It's always nice to have a basket of ready to go 
cards on my desk.  I colored this digi with prismacolor markers and added some pearls about the white cardstock to break up the monotony. The artist of Abi Ballerina is Wendy Burns and you can find her DT call, as well as her lovely digi images,  in her etsy shop -  some serious cuteness in there! 

Here is a close-up :)

I wish you all a fabulous weekend ~
May yours include some crafty time!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
