Happy Birthday Doll-ie

Happy Hump Day blogland! Its friggin cold here and I'm still getting used to the fluffy white stuff all over the place, especially having to stand in it while I wait for my oldest daughter to get on/off the school bus. You have no idea how grateful I am for those blessed days when hubby gets a late work call and gets the "privilege" of walking our little princess to the bus in the morning snow :D Today to contrast the monotone landscape outside, I have a fun birthday card using one of my favorite TGF cuties alongside one of my fave DCWV stacks for the Holiday Cards Challenge over at The Greeting Farm

Dollie With Cupcake

I won this cutie pie, or should I say cupcake, during a blog hop from TGF and hadn't found the inspiration to ink her up until the FFF challenge for holiday cards (birthdays count as holidays right???). I tried coloring her up with my copics but was not loving the way she turned out so I put this cutie away till I could find a special enough occasion or a paper that inspired me. While sorting through my paper stash I came across a stack that I absolutely had to have...and then barely used because it turned out I was only crazy about 1/4 of the papers in the whole pack -__-. Anywho, I knew this pad would be perfect for Ms Dollie so I made a quick simple card based on this week's Retro Sketch Challenge and watercolored Dollie with my Tim Holtz distress markers. To make sure Dollie was the center of attention I kept the embellishments simple, sticking to a few pearl flourishes, individual pearls and a piece of ribbon from my stash. I also added a bit of stickles to the pink areas of dollie's outfit and cupcake frosting to give it a little bling. I hope you guys are following my progress with the Tim Holtz markers and maybe even be a little inspired to try a few out for yourselves! Well I gotta dash, see you guys again soon, and keep looking out for that Valentine's card I promised. My image is colored, my papers are picked, I'm just not sure what fold I want to use...? If you have suggestions or requests leave them in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Krys, I think your Holiday Birthday card is really adorable! I have two cousins that have Christmas Birthdays, so in my book you got this. :O) Anyway I think it is really gorgeous and I love how you have colored her. I have yet to get any of the 'doll' stamps and you are so making me want them now. We don't have any snow here yet, but OMGoodness I am soooooo tired of the single digits at the moment. lol... Anyway, I am trying to make myself get back into my blogging as I have gotten lazy and been watching all the YouTube videos lately and I really love my blog so here I am. It's nice to meet you.
