If you upload your Paper Doll to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSGBDAY1 so we can check out your beautiful work!

So, here she little girl from Pumpkins on the Vine. I LOVE HER!! I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. Her outfit was paper pieced with some Echo Park Happy Halloween paper(still my favoritest paper ever). I couldn't get her to stand up at first, so I added a support piece to her base...then she was perfect!! I followed Christine's FABU directions...what a neato idea!! And well, I couldn't just make a paper doll, so I had to make a fun card to go with her!!

She was paper pieced and colored the same way, and I even used the same Echo Park DP. I followed this month's Sketch For You To Try, as well. I used a sentiment from the adorable Hauntingly Delightful set. My brads are from Michael's, and my Spiral clip is from Creative Express. My ribbons, all three of them, are SO YUMMY and are part of the new Ribbon Club Kits being offered by The Ribbon Carousel! Here are the details!

September's kit includes 10 different ribbons and twine for a total of 20 yards. :D

Sept Ribbon Club Kit $9.25
3 months of Ribbon Club Kits $27.00
6 months of Ribbon Club Kits $49.95

Each kit will include 15 to 20 yards of ribbon and twine. For the 3 and 6 months of kits, shipping is only paid once.

Well, that is it for me for now! Can't wait to see what all you come up with, and what kind of fun we can have this month celebrating!! HUGS!!

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my girl from Blue Without You on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. I then layered her with So Saffron, Spearmint, and Black Licorice. My white paper is Sweet Tooth, also from MFT. Her pants were paper pieced with some MME Lost&Found Rosy paper. SO FUN! I used the Stacking Star Die-namics, as well as the Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics. My yummy ribbon is from SU, and my brads are from Michael's. For my sentiment, I used the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.

For the inside, I used another one of the sentiments from this set, along with all the extra stars I cut out. I find this is a GREAT way to use up all the little extras that may end up NEVER getting used otherwise....the HORROR!!! LOL!

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out Kim's blog for a full list of designers participating in today's teasers!! Have a great day!
