I never could manage two roller skates at once!...

Hi All

Hope you're all well and enjoying the bit of sunshine we had over the weekend!  I managed to get my pots planted on Friday about three weeks later than I would normally do them..  but at last, their all ready for the summer!  (What summer do I hear?)

Grab Our Badge!

Today it's the turn of Paper Nest Dolls for my DT card..  and I have used Roller Skating Avery available HERE.   I always wanted to skate when I was a girl.... but like I said in the title, could never get the hang of the balancing bit!!  Nothing changed there then..

So.... a summer image deserves summer colours... yes?  I took my colour choice from the fabbie Doodlebug Designs Sugar Shoppe paper..  and also gave her some pink hair to match her lollipop!!  I used my Copics of course...

I fussy cut and 3D'd the image..  onto a panel that I'd embossed using a Crafts Too Embossing folder.  The border was done using a Memory Box Contempo Circle Border die, then I used an MFT Dienamics Rounded Banner Stax tab finished off with a button and some twine.

I did use some glossy accents on her skates and lollipop - and some glitter on the latter too  - yes... I had to have my glitter fix!

I hope you'll pop over to the Paper Nest Dolls blog and see what the other Dollies have come up with... you're bound to be inspired..... then as our challenge is Anything Goes, join in the fun!  If you use a Paper Nest Dolls image, you could be in for a lovely prize!

 A big hello to my newest followers..  thank you for joining me and for any comments you may leave.... they do mean such a lot..

Big Hugs....
