Pure Innocence

I saw this little girl and fell in love!!!! She is a digital stamp, and thanks to my dear friend Sharon, I was able to play with her and make some adorable Thanksgiving cards. I do not have Microsoft Word, and since most of the tutorials for digis are written for that, I had a terrible time trying to resize these stamps. Wait- not terrible- IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!-. No matter how hard I tried, I could'nt do it. I spent countless hours giving it my all, till my friend came to my aid. With her simple emailed tutorial for Word Perfect. it was a breeze. For that I will be eternally grateful!
Since I dont show or name the colors of Copic Markers that I use, I thought I would try to starting with this post. I already see that I left out her skin color, which was EOOO. My son Michael was gracious enough to be my hand model. Its good practice for his acting career! HAHA Well her is a peek of her. She was purchased from a store on ETSY called Pure Innocence. I believe she was only $2.00!!! And I got her right away! Thats a win win for me~
I made a total of 4 cards with her- all a bit different. I will show you 2 of them.
Cardstock is Stampin Up, amd Designer paper is from a pack by Debbie Mumm that I purchased last year at Joannes. She is stamped on PTI Select White cardstock.
Ribbon is from Michaels, and punches are Martha Stewart of course!
Spica pens are used for her hair barette and her green heart on her dress. I remember when I was little, my Mom often put my hair in one of those barettes.
The sentiment was computer generated, another thing I almost never do....

Dont you just want to give her a big hug??

Many thanks for stopping by... hope all your holiday preparations are going well.
