My challenge to myself, completed

On Saturday evening Chris came out to play, we crafted at mine until 3am Sunday morning.. easy done when you get engrossed in LO's and altering 'STUFF'.. Chris' LO's are gorgeous you will get to see them on her blog soon.
Earlier that day Chris made me 2 ATC's which I have fallen love with.. big thank you Chris... x... here they are. Chris' take on paper Babushka dolls
Are they gorgeous or are they gorgeous??. Chris showed us on Fiskarettes (link on the right) last week how to make them as stand up dolls but then went that one step further knowing I loved the 2 dolls she had made and my love of ATC's.

On Sundays post I set myself a challenge (Mad Woman) to make ATC's out of some card I nearly put in the bin (please see Sunday's Post) here they are.I will say it wasn't easy to work with such a busy background but I was pleased with the first 2 eventually, they sought of grew on me.These next 2 are 'my take' on 'Chris' take' IYKWIM...LOL and I am thrilled with them even if I say so myself.... mine look more like grown up many of you remember them?

I made myself a template for the Dolls and well the rest is history.
On the doll ATC's I used 2 of the backgrounds ATC's on each ATC...LOL did you get that.
If you want to take on the challenge of creating your own paper Babushka doll ATC I will email you my template... this offer will be open until WEDNESDAY ...all you have to do is use the smallest doll... there are 4 sizes on the template... make up an ATC and send me it in an email and they will shown here on Friday.

Hope you all had a good weekend. Welcome home Linda I will answer your email asap. :)) And welcome home Dottie.

Luv Chriss x

Hi Chriss, I love your latest work - especially those backgrounds! The 'pear shape' Russian Doll ATCs are gorgeous too.
Its taken me some time to catch up on your blog, but I've enjoyed it! Those Dottie ATCs are fab (I'm still laughing over Karen's)
Love Linda xx
