Emily is still off school - really bad cough but fine in herself. She's been really good and enjoying the late mornings in bed :-)
Shannon gets her braces off today! Three years of having braces on, so its going to feel really strange.
Andy comes home this weekend - Friday night late, until Monday afternoon - big huge smiles :-)
Anyway, on to my card for today.
I love these Dearie Dolls images and really don't get to use them as much as I would like. Mary Ellen is so generous with her images and does so many. The image I have used is from a series of Flower girls that Mary Ellen has done and this one is Bluebell. She is coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers - and I really like the blues on this one. Used my Silhouette Cameo to cut her out.
The base papers are from my stash and the layer under the Dearie Doll is from a DCWV stack, called Blossoms and Butterflies.
Isn't she just adorable. I popped the image and the tag top, up on some foam tape to give a little dimension to the card.
I love bluebells, and I remember when I was little, going to the bluebell fields and picking them and then knocking on neighbours doors - with bunches galore.
I inked all the edges of all the layers. My little tag is from a Polka Doodles CD called Cherryblossom Lane and I added a little flower off a corsage of flowers that I butchered :-) I added three little pearl dots and a little bit of ribbon to finish off the front.
For the inside I used the paper from the front and then stamped a little set of flowers, with the same ink that I used for the edges of the layers.
I'm hoping that this week goes quite quickly - so looking forward to seeing Andy and the girls are gettin really excited too.
