Such a Sweet Little Doll

We had a very hectic weekend and I am just exhausted! We had a huge yard sale, that lasted for three days. Sorry if I haven't visited you this weekend, but I will be back on track on Monday. You cant imagine all the work involved in setting up the tables, then putting it away at night only to start again the next day for the sale. There was all sorts of stuff included from vintage, my daughters outgrown toys and house wares.  I must feels wonderful to cleanse the  house of unused things. I know it all went to other people's loving homes. I even sold some crafting stuff to fellow crafters and managed to convince several people to try it!

 I made this little cutie on a distressed tin for my 100 Proof Press Design piece cause it reminded me of the dolls I sold this weekend.  I used the 100 Proof Press stamp called big cutie baby. My stamping got a little messed up, but I like the look anyway. I painted her dress and tiny shoes yellow. The tin base has a distressed paint technique, which really means I just painted lots of colors on the tin,  then I edged it with a little black Sharpie. A touch of Stickles for sparkle, a pretty flower from the Flying Unicorn store also edged in black and the sentiment "you re a doll" and the little tin was all done.

Hope you will meet a sweet little cutie this week.
yours truly, gerri
