Bringing Mom Flowers

A warm welcome and thank you for coming by to visit my blog and a big thanks to you if you have the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower.  Please let me know you stopped by, so I can be sure and return the favor. 

For some reason my creativity is in a black hole right now. I just need some nice sunny days to revive it.

Today's design reminds me of making paper dolls when I was young.  I first die cut the little girl and boy in flesh colored card stock. Then die cut them again to create the patterned dress and brown and white  boys outfit.  I die cut their heads using brown and yellow card stock and then using scissors created the hair.  I removed the basket from the girl and added the bouquet using Leafy Sprig and a Daisy punch.   

To create the frame I used the Spellbinders Grand Label Twenty-Three (6 1/4" x 5" Pink card stock) (5 1/2" x 4 3/8" White card stock).  To complete the design I added Martha Stewart punched grass, the fence trio and the tucked the kids behind the fence.  To create the words I printed it from my computer and then lined up the cloud and die cut.

  13. What fun! I loved paper dolls as a kid as well, and that's the first thing I thought of when I saw this little sweetie's pretty print dress. Loved reading how you changed the basket to the flower bouquet, and that hair do trimming is awesome. The picket fence was such a good way to frame the design, and it's absolutely perfect for Mom's Day. Hope you get some nice sunshine too. It's hard to be creative when it's dreary outside (at least for me!). TFS & Hugs.
