City Crafter Challenge Blog week #112 ~ Coppelia

Happy Tuesday crafters! This is Kirsty back here with this week challenge.
When I lived in Manhattan, my apartment was on West 57th street, it was just a few blocks away from Lincoln Center, where there stood The Metropolitan Opera House, Avery Fisher Hall and The New York City Ballet, I spent lots of time there. One of my favorite ballet is Coppélia, the story of Die Puppe (The Doll) and was premiered in May 1870. I bet everyone loves Ballerina, so I thought we should include a Ballerina on your project for this week's challenge, let's get started!!!!!

Week 112 ~ Coppélia

Guest Designer

Get to know Tammy......

It is an honor to be a guest designer for The City Crafter Challenge Blog this week. It's one of my favorite places to spend some crafty time.  I am an Army wife,  and a Mom to one bossy little guy! Being a military family, I have had the privilege to live in several different places to include Hawaii for 9 years. That is where my blog title got it's start. We currently reside  in Northern Virginia. 

My love for paper-crafting began a few years ago when I received a handmade Christmas card from a friend.   A few months later I was invited to a stamp party, and the rest is history!  There is nothing like the personal touch of a handmade card, and I haven’t sent a store bought card to anyone in years!
If I had to sum up my card making style in a word, it would be eclectic.  My creative spirit can be influenced by everything from my mood that day, to something that I experience or an image that I see. Since my style is mixed, you will get a variety if you pop by my blog! J

I truly feel lucky to have found such a wonderful creative outlet.  I love everything about paper-crafting, and when it comes to ‘me’ time, I can’t think of anything better!

My creations can be found at Creating Somewhere Under The Sun
