Future Riverdancer

This week, it is Sheila's turn to host our challenge at Mo's, and she decided for us to use lace. How easy is that!!!! So lace it is. I always think of the beautiful Irish lace that my girlfriend has from her mother and grandmother, you know the good stuff from Ireland. Every year I make her a St. Patrick's Day card and every year she brings me hot Irish Soda Bread right out of the oven. OMG!!! Mouth watering... I slab on the butter and I am in heaven. This year I decided to make her a card using this adorable image called Little Irish Dancer that you can find HERE and HERE.

I also need to thank my DT sister Paola for the wonderful Gold color on the end of her dress, I didn't know what color to do and she suggested gold, and then rattled off the copics. I must say it really popped her dress. So thanks Paola, What would I do without you?

Now, with all the shows I've seen on Broadway and off Broadway, I've never seen Riverdance The Irish Step Dancers who remind me of this "Little Irish Dancer" who is doing the jig. They have played at Radio City Music Hall in the past. Hopefully they will be back again so that I do get to see them, and by hook or by crook even if I have to go by myself I am going to see them. But at least I am Broadway bound again tomorrow to see Porgy and Bess. Really looking forward to that and of course my 3 course diner at AJ Maxwell's.

Here is an image of the card:

Great suggestion by Paola. I love the embellishments you added. They are so pretty. Great job. Oh how I wish I lived closer to the theaters in NYC. My daughter is trying to get an internship there this summer so maybe I can get up there for a visit.
