You Make Me Feel Like Dancing

This lyric has been going through my mind for several days. I thought it would make a great sentiment for a card but I needed the right image. Well...I found it!  I made this card using Seems A Little Sketch sketch#18.

Here is my card

I got this adorable little mouse at Cruzines. I colored her with my Copic Markers. I used Distress Stickles "Picket Fence" for the ruffle on her dress and put a bling in her bow. The papers are from Authentique's "Lively" Collection. The ribbon was from my stash. This card just makes me smile! I am entering this card in SALS Challenge.

Now....I have some big news! I have been chosen to be a guest designer for SALS in August! Yep! Little ole' me! I am thrilled and nervous all at once! SALS put out a call for guest designers. The thought had crossed my mine but I dismissed it just as quickly.  Then I talked to my friend Sandy T. She encouraged me to do it. I have my card made for the first challenge but you'll have to wait to see it.

This card I made using a sketch from Paper Take Weekly #70.

Here is my card using this sketch

I got this adorable little puppy from Sliekje digi Stamps. I just love her images and I appreciate so much her sharing them. I made this card a 6x6 as the sketch wasn't working for me on an A2 size card. I colored the mage with my copic markers. The paper is some old Bo Bunny I had. The brads I've had for years. The ribbon I found in my stash. The sentiment is a Unity stamp but I don't have a clue what set it came with. I am entering this card in Papertake's Weekly Challenge and Digi Haven: It's a Dogs World Challenge.

It's WOW Wednesday at Cat's Creations Blog. You have a chance to win some goodies if you mention her and link up your site. You might even find some inspiration there! I always do! Not to mention the wonderful people I have met and made friends with!

I got a call from my Lil' Peanut this afternoon. She said "I want to see you. Come see me!" Of course I dropped what I was doing! We colored and played. On my way home I noticed the moon. It's not quite full but looks full. I love how it looks this time of year. I stopped to snap this picture.

Lovely end to a great day....

Have a good one!
