Frazzled?



This is my submission for the current JUGS Challenge! I wanted to play along since one of my sweet bloggin buds, Dana, is on the design team! Plus... these colors are just fabulous... right? :)

I have loved this frazzled doll from Unity since the minute I laid eyes on her! She reminds me so much of the Raggedy Ann doll that I had when I was a little girl. I carried that doll around with me everywhere and still have it to this day! I think it is the only doll that I ever played with. Having two older brothers... I was more into playing football in the yard with them and the neighbor boy instead of playing with dolls!

Anyway.... my Raggedy Ann doll was such a mess that a sweet lady at my church made me a new one. However.... it didn't look just like my other doll and I just wasn't having it. I think I still have this doll too and it looks brand new! :)

So..... long story long... :) I thought of this stamp instantly when I saw these challenge colors. These are the colors of my doll!!

Hope you are all having a great day!

My little one is sick so I would appreciate any prayers that you guys would lift up on his behalf! He has a fever and a few other signs of what could be the flu! I am hoping it is just one of those viruses that he seems to get a lot. I wish it was nothing but I sure don't want it to be the flu!

Love you all!!

Supplies:
Stamps - go ahead wish (Unity)
Paper - Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy Bitty Box (PTI), Cosmo Cricket Early Bird - Cherry Pie
Ink - Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, Brown StazOn
Other - Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, and Vintage Cream buttons (PTI), copics, labels one nesties, SU Dimensionals

Yes! I am frazzled! But your card gave me pause to stop and smile! Thanks for that, sweet Kelley! I love your funky raggedy ann doll...I had several too..if I recall my mom and I DRESSED UP as raggedy ann's one halloween...complete with red yarn hair! I'll have to dig out pictures of that. Anyway, so glad you could play along with Just Us GIrls this week.

Give Carver extra snuggles from me and I'll send good wellness thoughts your way. And you keep healthy too, mama! {hugs}

How cute Kel! I love the story about your doll.

Sorry about Carver! I hope he starts feeling better soon. In the past two weeks I've learned what it's like to have a sick dog, and I can't image a sick kid. I'm sure it hard!

Heehee! I have seen this little girl making the rounds in stamp/blog world! She is perfect for this color combo! Love her!

Kelley this is adorable!! I think the colors are PERFECT! And I love how she is the same size as the card. She does look a little frazzled doesn't she? Did the sentiment come with the doll? Perfect pairing and just soo cute :0)

Winter said...

So cute! I thought that was Raggedy Ann doll! :) I thought about trying to play in that challenge too, the color combo is one of my favorites! We'll see if I have time! My family has been praying for Carver and will continue to! Love ya! :)

Cute card! I'm praying for Carver!

Carly said...

This card is super sweet! And I am so sorry to hear about your little guy. He will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Elise said...

Ohhhhh, sweet Kelley! You'd better believe sweet prayers are coming your way from across the country! Wellness to Carver and his PARENTS for sure! Such scary times! The littlest sniffle and we're scared for our lives! CRACKERS! I'll keep firm thoughts of quick recovery and love for you guys! MEANWHILE, nothin' like a great card to put some hope, or in this case - empathy back into the day. Before I read your post, I was thinking "do I get royalties if Kelley uses ME as a model for her card!?!" How did you find that PICTURE OF ME! Ha Ha Too funny! Adorable card, fantastic use of the JUGS colors and fabulous you! Yipee!

What a cute and fun card Kelley! I love the way you have used the colours looks great. I hope your little boy fights off the nasty bug!

Vanessa said...

This card is super cute! Love your rag doll! This colour combo is one of my favourites, too! Had to look up the word "frazzled" - yes, I am (because of my hair I often look so, too)!
I hope Carver is well soon, I so hope fights that quickly!!
Thinking of you!!

Hugs,
Vanessa
