Give her a dolly that laughs and cries...

One that will open and shut her eyes...
Happy Thursday everyone! Could it be that another weekend is almost upon us?
Here's something really funny - it's 2 weeks until Christmas Eve! Ugh...I'm sooo not laughing.

Even though I should be checking off my to-do list, there are so many really fun challenges out there in Blog land that I wanted to play with. I finally had a moment to sit down and create a card using my Favorite Doll image from Inktegrity. This card is going in my sister's Christmas gift, because I consider her my original BFF:



I had this idea brewing in my head for a while and I'm so happy it's finally out and makes sense. lol! Back in high school, my other BFF and I used to dress alike. SOOO nerdy right? But it was the 80s, what can I say.
Here is a closer look at the two:



I mirrored the image and then moved them closer together which makes for an easier printing job. I do love traditional hands-on stamping, but digis are sooo awesome to tweak.
These are the challenges that I made this card for:

Digital Tuesday's Christmas Song (thus the title of this posting)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday's current layout
The Pink Elephant's favorite Christmas color combo (orange and blue are so icy and sweet together!)

Thank you so much for coming by today! Have a beeeeautiful Thursday, especially since you're probably done with all of your Christmas cards and shopping, right? Send some mojo my way pleeeeease...
♥ and Aloha

Good morning Joni. What a sweet, sweet card. I love the dots and the center of the flower. Your colors are really yummy together. And that ribbon is just a perfect touch to finish your card. I love how you put the darling little girls sitting on the ribbon.
