Raggedy Anne

Happy Saturday!  I'm having a lovely Saturday... BB and I have just been shopping at our favourite Greek designer boutique and we both spent more than we planned on spending, but we had a lovely outing!  I think between us we must have tried on half the store!  Good thing we actually bought some stuff or we might not be invited back!

Anyway, I have a quick card to share today using one of the recent digital releases from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...  Paprika as Raggedy Anne.  When I was little I used to love reading Raggedy Anne and Andy at my Granny's house.  It was one of my favourite books there.  I'm hoping Barbara is going to draw an Andy to go with Raggedy Anne : )

Here's my card:

Yep, she's officially adorable and so much fun to colour up!  The papers are from my stash... not sure who they are by and the lovely doily was a gift from my bloggy friend Maria Therese of Me, Myself and Scrapping.  Thanks Maria!  I have just used three of these doilies in a row!  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the crochet flower is one I made.  The buttons are from my stash.  The sentiment is another SRM sticker (they seem to be my thing at the moment).

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenges: H is for Handmade Flowers (I used a crocheted flower)
Cropstop: Use a doily

That's it from me this weekend!  I'll see you back here Monday with some more Little Miss Muffet Stamps inspiration. 

I'm off to make some cards, maybe go out for dinner and the movies (so that I can wear some of my new clothes) and hopefully make some more cards tomorrow!

She's perfect! I had a Raggedy Ann doll when I was little! Nice crocheted flower! I need to sit and crochet some more flowers to use on my cards, my supply is getting low!

Hi Arabella, another gorgeous creation.

I quite agree the doily is beautiful isn't it! Love the buttons as well.

Sounds like you had a nice time at the shops, I don't do much clothes shopping for me anymore - it's all for Emily. Her wardrobe is fuller (is that a word?) than mine!!
