New doll with vintage teddy bear

I finally added hands and feet to Melanie, my last dolly. I made her for my miniature vintage teddy bear than my grandpa gave me when I was 3 or 4 years old. He has been around me all my life (while my grandpa passed on when I was 5) and I wanted to give him a special place so I thought that best was to make tiny arms that could hug him.

Beautiful dragonflies

I live on a small lake and there are lots of dragonflies around here. Today I spotted one on a flower and I ran to get my camera...... This is the best shot I got. Click on the photo to enlarge it.This image is a Cherry Pie stamp colored in with watercolor paints

Gothic arches

Another swap with my Yahoo group. We used all the same shape of a Gothic arch with a tab so I could punch it for binding into a booklet.
15 players, each one of us received the same booklet back.
All rubber stamps used are by Cherry Pie
