Isn't she lovely.

I had a blast last week with one of the new releases from The Greeting Farm!  Her name is Do Si Do Anya, and she is beyond cuuuuute!!

I just love her long braids!!

I used one of my fav latest hair combos which is: E43, E44, and E47.  Her dress and bow were paper pieced with a cute pink/brown bandanna type pattern that I had bought from Hobby Lobby quite a while ago.  The patterned paper on the card is from Pebbles Sunnyside pad.    I finally found some corner dies at the store, I was afraid I would have to break down and buy them online!  They are from Sizzix, and I got 3 different corner dies, and one flourish die. (love it!)  I have been hoarding that cute little pink heart button for a very long time, it is from My Mind's Eye.  This card is VERY girly!

My parents recently celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary, and this is the card I put together for them.

I just didn't feel right using an image, so I found some great sentiments online and kind of made it up as I went.  The patterned paper is from MME's Union Square pad.  I used distress inks on the butterfly to help him coordinate with the rest of the card.  I tied on some natural twine, a cute little lock, red flowers from a Michaels trip, a gorgeous cream colored brad from Hobby Lobby, and another cream resin flower.  I also used my latest clearance score, the red and cream polka dot paper was cut with a new Martha Stewart edge punch set.  My parents loved this!
