Ok own up, who loved their dollies as much as this???? LOL
You can FEEL she adores her favourite toy can't you?
It's a good job the dolly isn't a small baby 'cos it would have had the life squeezed out of it!
Yet another fabulous image from the wonderful Mo Manning and another I've had for a while and only just got round to using -the papers are by Papermania and the image as usual coloured with promarkers. The design of the card is quite basic and I'm hoping the colours in the papers and the image detract from my lack of imagination in the design!
I resisted placing a sentiment on here and instead opted for a large pink bow and a fabric flower group in the top right corner.

Hi Viv

A beautiful card and a beautiful image and papers.

Love what you have done here.

I don't remember loving any of my dolls as much as this .. .. I had a baby sister to love and cuddle instead.

What I do remember though is loving the "smell" of a new doll and really enjoying sniffing them. Once the smell had gone the attraction of the doll went too. LOL!!

Oh dear. Don't I sound strange!!!

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

Beautiful card Viv - love the colour combo.

I can't remember any dolls as a child! Although I do remember the paper cut out ones, I loved those - couldn't cuddle them though!!

Hi Viv,
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and following. I love you ATC tag book. I must get a move on with mine. I need to get my brain into orbit. I see you are into Genealogy too. I can trace my Paternal grandmothers line back to 1540. Have just received a cd from my cousin of a cine film taken around 1939 showing my G.grandmother (b.1865) my grandparents and my father who is now 87yrs as a 15 yr old boy. Fantastic to see.
