Samantha Walker Blog Hop Day! An Art Doll, A Wreath, and a Valentine! AND WOYWW!!!

If you came from Pinky's blog you are on the right track! If you just popped in here, feel free to jump on back to Samantha's blog to begin the hop!

I have THREE WAY FUN projects to share with you, so there will be LOTS of photos. I won't talk too much since I know you want to make the other stops and because, well, if I do, this post will be days long. Just Say'n.

Project #1: Princess Wreath

I love burlap! This wreath is wrapped in burlap and I made the flowers from the Cowgirl collection by Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations! The sticker is from the same collection.

Project #2: Gorgeous Valentine Card

You see, you don't have to use Valentine themed products to create fabulous Valentines! This card is made with papers from the Sweet Tooth Collection by Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations! I also used one of Samantha's fabulous holey cardstocks! LOVE!!!

Love You

And finally, my personal favorite.....a new ART DOLL!!!! She is a fabric and paper clay doll. Her body is made with three patterns of Samantha Walker for Riley Blake fabrics and I love them all!!! Her head, shoulders, and legs are sculpted from paper clay and her arms are stitched from fabric, stuffed and sewn on. She is adorned with ribbon, lace, and flowers. I must say, this pretty girl was SO cooperative when we did our photo shoot. She sat and posed SOOO beautifully. I was proud of her. Her name is Evanthe and she would be happy to go pick some flowers from the field with you! She is really a very sweet girl. Mild mannered, yet fun.

LOL! I just got so caught up in thinking about your word verification thingy, I almost forgot to comment. You know how some folks see people or animals in CLOUDS? Well, I see stories & characters & PLACES in word verifications. Yeah, I KNOW! I'm soooooo weird, huh? Anyway, I love the wreath! So pretty! And the card is extra pretty! (Mercy! I haven't even THOUGHT about my Valentine projects! Sigh!) Then there is your doll! Such a beautiful little lady! Tell me you didn't SEW those teeny legs! If you DID, you totally ROCK! I'm crazy about her! She's WONDERFUL! (And YOU are, TOO!) HUGS!
