Paper Nest Dolls...... Avery in her posh Easter Bonnet!


Hi Ladies

Today it's my DT card for Paper Nest Dolls..  It's another Anything Goes challenge.. (don't we all love them?) so it's easy to join in with at the Challenge Blog HERE.

I chose Easter Bonnet Avery to colour... and hmmmmm weirdly enough, my pink pens jumped out for her!  She's available as a rubber stamp HERE.

The card recipe is pretty self explanatory...  the die is Spellbinders Floral Oval, lace is from my trimmings drawer...  and paper is from my stash (sorry it didn't have a name but I've used it before..)  And the sentiment was done on the PC and punched with a Stampin Up oval punch.  I did TRY to put some flowers on this card.... but ended up taking them off again.  What is it with me and flowers???? hehe!

I'd love you to pop over to the Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Blog and see what the lovely Dollies have come up with for your inspiration.... they are a talented bunch!  And there are such lovely prizes to be won too.

Hope everyone is well and that you're all going to enjoy the lovely weather we're expecting this week..  I think I'll be in my craft room for a good while, as I've got lots of DT cards to get organised.  Now WHY didn't I do them last week when I was quiet?  Oh I KNOW... cos I was making cards for orders that I'd had!! I'm a busy, busy bee at the mo - and you'll be fed up of the sight of me by the end of the week! 

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
