Literally, I am a tag along by default on this paper craft treat. I missed the sign up by a few minutes. Man those things go fast over at Elizabeth's Bluebird Papercraft. http://www.creativebreathing.blogspot.com
Because Miss E. is so super sweet she agreed to make a Valentine just for me, (see yesterdays post)
and the fantastic Paula Clare over at Paula's Place of Altered Art
is such an overachiever and made 28, yes 28 Dolly Dingles. I got to participate by default with these two cuties.
Several vintage cards were lovingly sacrificed for the making of this sweet Valentine. I assure you that it was all worth it. I haven't had this much fun since art class in Elementary school, really it was very freeing.
Nothing too fussy, just the label and hanger.
Again, I used two cards to create the depth. There was this monster heart under the fence that stuck out like a sore thumb...so I covered it with these beautiful vintage velvet forget-me-nots.
I love him. Just as happy as can be slurping up that watermelon.
Doilies never made things so easy. Another back with a tag and a hanger to finish it off.
All packed up between the cardboard with a note of thanks. These cuties went out today in the mail. I sure hope they make it in time for Valentine's Day. Thank you so much for letting me play along and work on my skills. It was fun.
On another note...Miss Diane I truly have a new appreciation for all your art. These are not easy to craft and create. To keep straight and prim took me every ounce of patience. Yours are really a work of art. This is my ode to you. Thank you for the inspiration.
If you haven't visited Diane of Saturday Finds stop now and go see her stuff. She is a ray of sunshine and her art is vintage magic.http://saturdayfinds.blogspot.com/
