It takes 2 to Tango!

Happy New Year to all my blogging friends!

The first few days of this year started with a very slow creative mojo. Perhaps too much Holiday Cheer! And then this morning I saw the CAS-ual Friday 'In a word' challenge and my mojo sobered up! This challenge is to create a card that around a word that sums up what you hope for in 2014. I immediately thought of the New Year's resolution that my husband and I made together. We are going to take up learning to dance. I really want to learn how to Jive but am game to try any kind of dance. And here is my card to represent this:


I challenged myself to make this one layer as I wanted to enter this new look One Layer Simplicity Challenge. The challenge this week is to re-stock the shelves. I need cards like this one that I make and  leave blank inside. I can then use them for a variety of occasions. The dancing silhouette is heat embossed and I added the twine, well really, just because I thought it looked like it should be there, after I had played with different ideas!

The dancing stamp is from Stamplorations and I am very excited that today I my application to their DT was successful! They have a cool 'Stamps and Feathers' challenge going on this month.....take a peak here.

I hope that your New Year has started well and I wish you all health and happiness in 2014 xx

  2. I love this, especially the red accents, I have to CASE this layout, it could be done with very think paper strips too when not wanting to make a one layer. Cool idea!! xxx
