Shaking it up!



Edited to add:  I just got back from Darnell's blog! she has some FUN she is cooking up for April fools Day!! Check it out HERE.



My cutie patootie Dress Up Dolls stamp set and die combo are making their debut today : ) I loved playing with paper dolls when I was a little girl.  I really appreciate Betsy Veldman creating this sweet product for Papertrey Ink so I can play with paper dolls again! heeheehee.  I put my little boy INSIDE the shaker portion! what could be more fun to be a boy and to be inside a shaker card?! LOL



Aren't they just adorable!! Betsy has even given them little underwear just like real paper dolls.  Such detail to "unmentionables"!  The boys heart underwear crack me up!



I want to enter my card in the fun challenge at Seize the Birthday challenge blog where the theme this time is "The Great Divide" : )  I used a cover plate from PTI and divided up the shaker portion of the card by covering the entire cover plate with an acrylic sheet - then adding foam tape on the back side along each division so I could contain my sprinkles.



I will enter my card in the Just Us Girls challenge because woo hoo!! the theme is:

Shaker Cards!! : ) A match made in heaven - two great challenges.



I will be sending this card to a child who is in the hospital via Send a Smile 4 Kids and I pray it brightens their day.  I have been making cards for children to get a bunch sent to them.  If you love making cards for young children and teens you may want to consider sending your cards to this amazingly good cause.  The challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge blog is "Spring Colors" I love the happy look of spring colors : )



Both my cover plate and my adorable little paper dolls are NBUS so you know what that means!! Check out what our fun and loving friend is doing now that her and Hammy have woken up from their nap! : )

It is cold today here in the Black Hills of South Dakota but the sun is bright and I still believe spring is on the way!!

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a GREEN! day today!!

Patti

Ooohh, this is so precious, Patti! I LOOOVED paper dolls as a kid. There was so much turmoil and dysfunction happening all around and I could escape into fantasy land with those paper imaginary friends. It makes me smile to think they are being embraced by the paper crafting community! These are too darn cute in their unders and you've given them such a happy, happen' place to play with your shaker cubicles! You just get better and better, my friend!!

Thank you so much for editing your post to include my Boo Boo Hop for card flops! Mwahs!! Hugs, Darnell

All the cards you make are wonderful but this is one of my favorite. I usually dont fancy paperdolls, but this one is SUPER! Makes me want to make one. I like that the dies do all the cutting work for you. I like the comic strip die too. Currently they are out of them. Maybe someday... so it was cold? how cold?
