No Gasping or Holding Your Breath!!

Yes, indeed this is my 4th post this gasping or holding your breath PLEASE! *grin* 
It has been such a busy summer that my blogging all but died, BUT I'm back now and hope to keep up with all the Blogland adventures.
Our oldest GD, Hannah, will turn 9 years old next week and this is the card I created for her.  I have quite a few of these Prima Doll stamps and enjoy paper piecing them for cards......especially for the GDs.  ( I really have them because I loved paper dolls as a kid.....*grin*)
The card base was colored with Gelatos, then wiped with a wet wipe to blend it.  The white die cut was used for a little texture and design.  The doll was stamped onto a flesh colored paper and the hair colored with Prisma CP.  The dress was fussy cut from a snippet of paper that was hand decorated years ago.......back when all the pretty paper wasn't readily available.  For the ruffle and bow I used a little snippet of vellum, and touched the edges with gold glitter paint, along with the shoes.  Hannah like her sparklies.......just like G-ma!  hahaha!  The sentiment is a very old one from who knows where, stamped on a die cut vellum and gold embossed.  The number 9 was cut from the last snippet of an other hand decorated paper.
Remember hand decorating your own background papers??  Back when it was the "thing" to do I took cardstock, and /or colored construction paper and made background papers with webbing sprays ( who remembers those?) glitter sprays and just spray paint.  It was so much fun that I had piles of they have all but become a memory.
I want to join a couple of challenges with this card, 613 Avenue Create: #137 Anything Goes

Hope you have a super - great - creative weekend!

  1. So cute! (Can I let out my breath now?) Love the card.

  2. I didn't hold my breath once. Mainly because I'm thrilled to see you blogging again, and making lovely cards and art that you didn't find on Pinterest. Now you know why I don't belong. It's either that or not make art, since my computer is SO slow.

    Hannah is going to love it, and I know you'll take photos of her opening it, bling and all (grin).

  3. Oh what a great card for a nine year old Krisha! I love thos images too - and I also loved my paper dolls :)

    Welcome to the snippets playground, am sure it's your first time here and I do so hope we see you again!
