Thinking of You doll

Thanks SO much for all the sweet comments - they really make me smile (and even blush!)! Just thought I should mention once again how much I appreciate you. :)

So, about a week or two ago, I got rid of almost two thirds of my patterned paper stash, by giving it away online.

It felt soooo good. :)

I decided to do some further cleaning (to make way for 2011 Winter CHA releases!) by challenging myself to make cards using 'old' papers.

October Afternoon "Fly a Kite" and "Thrift Shop" were the first collections I went after. For this card, I actually didn't use too much of the paper, but even though it was just one scrap, I still feel proud, because I didn't let it just gather dust!

I had already colored in the doll one day, (for fun because I usually don't like putting colored images on my cards) and it happened to slip out with the papers I already had out.

Mmm, how do you like that ribbon? It's a new color now available in my shoppe. I also have lots of vintage images that I've added, with samples coming soon. :)

I want to mention that our computers software was switched (for better protection from viruses), so now all the quick links I had of blogs I visit are gone. I am trying to go through all the blogs and bookmark them again, but if you notice I am not commenting regularly on your posts, then your blog might've slipped my notice. If so, just leave a comment/drop an e-mail letting me know, because I do not want to miss out on any of your creations. :)

Anyways, thanks for stopping in and have a happy hump day!

ETA: This card was made for this weeks SSC and WeeMemories challenges. :)
