Happiness is you...Tag You're It! Challenge #23

Hello,

A quick before-I-head-to-bed post to share a tag I made for Tag You're It! Challenge #23, where we've been invited to draw inspiration from the darling mini artworks created by the extraordinarily talented, CAS-ilicious queen: Tracey McNeely:


Aren't you smitten with her single image & sweet sentiment tags?  Simple, yet, as is Tracey's style, stunning.  I've tried to follow suit with my tag, colouring up one of my adorable ballerina images from our darling friend, Bev, and pairing her with a lovely-font sentiment from Your Next Stamp Shop.

Simple...and cute (I hope...).  I'm still striving for simple and stunning...


By the way, "Happiness is YOU" is my message to all of you  who visit my blog and leave such warm, uplifiting comments.  You truly are precious and if I knew how to "do" ballet, I'd pirouette in joy (oh my...that would be so not pretty...but if I 'could" I would).

Anyway, my cozy bed calls...

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

Mission accomplished. This is most definitely "simple and stunning," if you ask me! Let me know if you need any more ballerinas too, I'd be happy to send some. Your coloring is perfect, and those little stars are the perfect backup to the tiny dancer. Love that sentiment, btw! Sweet, sweet tag! Bev
