Pink and Punny

I can't believe it's been a week since I've posted.  Where does the time go?  Since I have very few cards to post, I've been dragging them out, hoping for a challenge or two.  Today it's two.

Here's the card.


I'm hoping this qualifies for Fantabulous Cricut #98 - Fun with Puns
and My Craft Spot #44 - Girly Girl

I made this for my granddaughter until I remembered it was her 13th birthday.  I wanted to do something special for that so this card will wait until next year.  The pun part is the "We Wi-shoe" on the front (with "a Happy Birthday" on the inside).  And what could be more girly than a pair of pink ballet slippers?  There's no bling or anything because my DGD isn't a bling sort of girl.  She's really  more of the quirky kind but she is a beautiful ballerina, now on pointe.

The shoes were cut from Twinkle Toes and I bought the cartridge just so I could make her a card like this and do some layouts of her performances. 

I know Valentine's Day is over but I do have a couple more of them to post.  I'll do one tomorrow and then see what late week challenges have in store.

  5. Nice ballet card. Reminds me of when my daughter was younger & taking ballet lessons. My daughter is not a bling girl either. Thanks for entering the Fantabulous Cricut Fun With Puns challenge.
