Good Morning, I for one am glad its a new week and looking forward to better days. I mentioned last week about the flood from the washer, after that my sewing machine broke, then I had put a dozen eggs on to boil and opps forgot and went to work... WOW what a smoky stinky mess that made not to mention ruined my very best pan and for toppers my cuttlebug broke on Saturday. Do you remember life before a die cut/embossing machine??? Now that's a challenge:)For todays Tuesday Throwdown challenge we are looking for Baby/Child creations. Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps. They have so many wonderful images be sure to stop by their store. I am using the Raggedies image. You don't see many of them any more. When my girls were young everyone had one. I decided to make a little ABC book for my Granddaughter. The image was water colored and attached to the red checked dp then the dark blue. No machine so lots of faux stitching. My little flower is make with some dotted paper, punches and the blue and wht center I outlined it with the dots, attached little hinges and the eyelets to attach the ribbon. On the inside each page has three letters and pics for the sound.

LOVE the Raggedy Ann and Andy image, Davi! When my kids were small (a boy and a girl), I made them one of each to play together but never made any clothing! LOL I think we still have those naked dolls around here somewhere. Your card/ABC book is so cute and the red, white and blue is a perfect color choice for them. Sorry about the bad week. Hope this one is better.

Love and blessings, Martha

Kim said...

WOW! This is such a great idea. The Raggedy Ann and Andy images are so adorable and your colors are so pretty.

Awwww Davi this is totally fabulous what great colours and design and I just adore that image, I have this one somewhere tucked away in one of my folders, I love rag dolls which is why I bought it but I have never got around to printing it off and colouring, I must say you have done a wonderful job here I love it.

This has to be the most adorable card ever for a child. We had a Raggedy Andy around here for a while with one foot coming off. My son finally took it home with him. Hope they fix the foot. The red checked paper is just perfect.
Davi, I sure hate to hear of all your troubles. Gosh, you know when it rains, it pours. You are having a flood. I know you miss all those items that broke. Glad your house didn't burn down with those eggs boiling.
I just bought a Grand Calibur and I think I'll like it. It would be a great machine for scrapbooking with the Grand Nesties, too. I believe you do some scrapbooking. Of course, the Cuttlebug has a wide carriage for the plates now if you care for that kind. I still love my Cuttlebug, too.
