More Dolls!

Hello lovely people,

Today is a wonderful day for 2 reasons;

1)  I am off for a catch up with two lovely crafting blogging friends and I am soooooo looking forward to the coffee, cake and most of all, the company :-)

2)  I am delighted to tell you that Christine of The Paper Nest Dolls asked me to do a few more cards as a guest DT member...cue happy dance!

Today sees the release of a brand new set of images from The Paper Nest Dolls and I have the super cute Lemon Ellie to show you...but all the new images are very yummy!

Everything got a little bit distressed in the making of this card with lots of inking, tearing, rolled corners, and bits of lace peeking through!

Here's the star of the card...so adorable!

I had to dig out some sunny papers to go with this image.  It's not often I use yellow but it seemed to be called for in this case and I even found the perfect little sentiment cut from one of the papers :-)
