I found this dress by Carter's on sale at Target. It had the pleating but no smocking. Well I couldn't let it stay plain so I added the smocking. I hadn't smocked in years but I remembered how and made the pattern up out of my head as I went along.

Here is a close up of the smocking.
 I have another little dress to do. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
How much fun am I going to have with a granddaughter! lol

Jam Tilda

I just love this Tilda, of course there aren't too many Tilda's I don't just love. 
I colored Tilda with copics and added a few sparkles on her head wrap, lace and the bottle covering. There is diamond glaze on the bottle. The dp is from K & Company. The butterflies are punched from a Martha Stewart punch. The dies are from nestabilities. The beaded circles have liquid pearls in each circle. Two flowers have copper brads in them. The other flowers have mini dew drops. I put little doodles around the label nestalibities.

I made this card for: to use pink, brown, green and cream - to use your favorite color - pink of course with a fairy or butterfly

Thanks for looking. Your comments are always appreciated.

Once again it has been forever since I posted anything. I am hoping that I will be able to stamp more now that the wedding is over. I have so missed it. My dd made a beautiful bride. The wedding was lovely - simple but lovely. Now on to my card.

This is mini Peanut from the fall Magnolia collection. Isn't she a dear. Her little pleated skirt and sweater reminded me of my high school days so I colored them in my school colors - red and gold. Red and gold is still one of my favorite color combinations - my kitchen is done in red and yellow. I colored her with prisma color pencils. I don't know if you can tell but I made a subtle plaid on the skirt and scarf. The tree was done with memory box dies. I colored some of the leaves with copic markers. The dp is basic grey. I added some yellow rhinestones from Queen & Co. and some nail head stickers. The owl is from a set for the now defunct Angel Company. I just love fall.
