I love an opportunity to craft and more importantly to try products that I have never used before so this was a real treat for me ... not so much for hubby though once he views my wishlist which has now been updated in time for Christmas.
Marisol with our wonderful host Patty, and with the two paper doll bears in sleeping bags that we made. She insists that her 'girl bear' sleep next to her bed every night now.

The Stampin' Pastels kit
I absolutely loved trying them out, they are so easy to use and blend beautifully.
The little collection of cards and paper doll bears that Marisol and I made - as you can see Marisol loved stamping.
Some of the beary cute paper dolls and cards that Patty had created using the Build-A-Bear Stampin' Up products.
These cards are absolutely gorgeous. So much detail goes into them. It may be hard to tell in the photos that I have taken of them, but they are 3D and the middle section moves/swings. I found a shop where they are sold when I was shopping in Carmel one afternoon … having arrived for dinner with friends2 hours before I was supposed to. What a shame that was, you know, cause what else is a girl to do but go shopping. Alone. All alone.
I picked up these two cards for the twins birthday.
The twins absolutely love them. Marisol swings the girl on her swing and Flynn spins the Ferris wheel around and around.
I won’t pretend that they are cheap though. They are roughly $7 a card, but considering they are not just the ‘average’ card, I was more than happy to pay that.
