Happy Birthday Dolly

Hi my friends and happy Monday!  I wanted to get this card posted last week, but other things got in the way and it never got done. Today I've been digging in the dirt and my fingernails are awful looking. I needed to repot some of my 4" size milkweed plants. I took 2 small ones and put them in a one-gallon pot. It was so hot and humid out that I could only stay outside for 1/2 hour and the mosquitoes were relentless.  Still have more to do, but they'll have to wait a few days. I have other things scheduled for the next couple of days.

Anyway, I wanted to get this other card on my blog.  It's the second image that I used from Jeanette's kit from Girls of the Baker's Dozen n/k/a Creative Card Chicks.  I had such fun with this image - I love her Whimsy hair. It was funny because I picked this designer paper because it had the dark purple color in it that I used for her coat, and then I went and covered it up with the image. LOL!  I still love it. It's been so long since I finished this and I didn't write down all the different things that I used, so I'll have to fill in some of it later.

Materials Used:
  •  Image - Whimsy Stamps - Dolly
  • Sentiment - Whiff of Joy
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up; Xpress It Blending Card

That's it.  I'll be back on Thursday with something new and some fun news.  Stay tuned.

  1. Oh Maggie this is adorable - love that image and how beautifully you have coloured her.

  2. This is just a darling image and so fun with the paper! You always match up your colors just perfectly. It's such a happy card! I remember that kind of humidity when we lived in Missouri, but I was a kid (junior high age) and tolerated it better. These days I'm not good with heat and humidity at all.
