Unusual request:)

I had a request for a card for a young girl to give to her best friend for Christmas. She wanted a dummy on it somewhere as her friend still has one lol. They are only young and we all have are little comforters, even at my age so who was I to argue!! Anyway I found this dummy charm in my baby stash and it fitted perfectly. Hope she likes it!! I bought a roll of the blue fabric from Ikea the last time I was down for just 70p so had a go at making my own flowers and added some to the border in pleats and tied a bow from it as well. Very pleased with the outcome.
Image - Sugar Nellie
Papers - Dovecraft
Embellishments - blue fabric, embossing folder, sentiment
Medium - she is coloured with promarkers, background in chalks

My darling daughter arrived home yesterday and I was so so glad to get a real life hug. Its been 3 months to the day since we had a hug:( We snuggled up on the couch and watched a movie then the house came down with visitors lol. So we had a great old night. She is still in bed now, old habits die hard lol!
Right I am off to start crafting, have a ton of orders for this week:)

Gorgeous card Pinky! Beautifully colored and I love the pretty flower and bow you've made. I've never heard them called a "dummy" here in the states and it took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about lol! I seem to learn something new everyday from blogland :) I'm sure the girl will love this card.
