A Special Thank You


Today is the Debutante ball for Y11 girls at my son's school and I have spent the last 10 weeks watching the 35 young couples learn some amazing dances to perform on the night. My daughter did her Deb 3 years ago and I hadn't realised how much the dedicated volunteer parents did behind the scenes - and I'm soo proud to be one myself this year! I wanted to make a card for the girls to sign for the parent who has been organising these Balls for the past 11 years and I found this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary HERE - yes it IS a wedding image but it sooo suits this purpose too. There has been lots of clear spica pen used over the image - it's a shame the delicate sparkle doesn't show up here.

I'm hoping my son will get asked to be a partner when his turn comes in 4 years time - I'd love to see HIM dressed up in tails and waltzing around the floor - LOL.

Copics used - E43, E42, E41, E40, E11, E00, E000, R20, R11, R00, R000, RV66, RV63, RV000, C00, B05, G21

Oh wow Debbie, she is stunning and perfect for a deb card, it is sooo lovely!
I still remember doing my deb, I was so nervous about falling down the stairs (why they thought making us walk down stairs was a clever idea I will never know, bahahah) and i was freaking out a little bit before hand but once we got started it was all good :) Ahhh, memories!!
