Woo hoo - I'm in Craft Stamper!

Hello dear friends and I'm absolutely thrilled to tell you my news today!  I submitted a little dolly I made using that gorgeous free Elizabeth Bennet stamp with the September issue of Craft Stamper and they've chosen it to feature in their Over to You section on page 61.  I'm absolutely delighted as I've been a bit down lately and this has really lifted my spirits.  Here's my dolly...

and I won a gorgeous Crafty Inidividuals stamp too - even better!

I made my dolly using a TH dress form and the stamp as the face - it fitted perfectly and it was a joy to dress her up with some lace, flowers and butterflies and then give her some wings.  I wondered how to display her then found some packaging I'd kept (as you do) which made a perfect little stand for her.  Just shows - its always worth hanging on to these bits - that's my excuse anyway.

Hope you are all enjoying the Autumn colours - the weather forecast for the weekend looks good.  Thanks for popping by.  Margie x
