We're Havin' A Heat Wave...

Hi All. Hope you're staying cool.
I wanted to share my latest "obsession" Julie Nutting's paper dolls. I have several finished.
The problem is the studio is the messiest I have ever seen. Until I do some cleaning I wont be able to take pictures.
Maybe after Jazzercise?

I'm back with a couple of pics.

Her name is Chiara. I stamped her on text paper, colored her with Copics and pieced her from old designer paper.
I think the sentiment is from a Wendy Vecchi set? I will add some ribbon and call her done.

Next up is "Ruby"

I will add some embellishments. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps.

This last pic is of the other 3 dolls.

Oops someone is missing. Too tired to figure out who.

Thanks for stopping by. Goodnight!

Happy Birthday

Tomorrow is my daughter, Amanda's, birthday.
I made a card for her from her hubby, Ant, as well as one from me.

I have had this "Panda" stamp set from  The Ton for a while.
It seemed perfect for Ant to give to Amanda.
The background is silver embossed. The paper strip is also embossed, with gold.

This was my card to Amanda. I love the Altenew Vintage Rose stamp set -so much fun. Love the results. Once the dies became available had to have those too. The sentiment is from Avery Elle.
I cased this card from Tracy Mae Design.

Thanks for stopping by and to my new followers "Welcome"

It's days like this that make me want to move to Antartica!
I spent the week-end in doors, in the studio. Only went out to see "Antman" at the movies- hilarious, tons of fun!

Moving right along. A Day for Daisies challenge is to use one of their images with newsprint. Good thing they offered a "freebie" because the thought of looking through my digi images to find
"Brother Owl" did not appeal to me AT ALL.

I made four copies of this lovely image. Two I used newsprint for hair, two used it for her face. I'll post those when I put a card together. Colored with Copics. Sentiment is from Unity Stamps.

Hope you like her as much as I.

Talk to you again, soon.
