Anyone for a Riverdance?


     First week of the month so it's "Anything Goes' time at Mo's Digital Pencil.  St. Patty's day is comin' up so I thought I'd play with the "Little Irish Dancer" image from Mo's store.  I've never gotten to see Riverdance live, but what I've seen on TV is just amazing.  So much skill and perfect timing to get all those dancers in synch.
     The shamrocks were made with the waste from a Sizzix corner die.  The hearts were the perfect size.
     Grab a Mo image and play along for a chance at a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's store.
     I'm a bit behind in visiting.  I hope you'll all forgive me.  I had to make the decision Tuesday to put my beloved labby dog down and I'm really struggling with it.  My heart is so broken and bruised.  Please remember me in your thoughts and prayers.  Fourteen years of unwavering love is hard to get over.

    I am so sad to hear about your beloved puppy. I have been there and no how difficult this is. My heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with you. You know, I said never again back then - but be careful because I got 6 grandchildren instead - 4 of which I am helping to raise! Only kidding - I love them all and they all ask for a dog or cat almost everyday but I tell them not till Nana can afford to retire - that ends that discussion! Absolutely loved your card and I just purchased this image so you are inspiration - once again. Take care - big hugs
