Paper Doll Collaboration 2018 December Ugly Sweater

This month's theme was ugly sweater.  This is the last theme for the 2018 collaboration project, as the month is December and the years is ending.  But worry not, we will be doing another project in 2019 (details still in progress).  For this theme, I drew my own sweater vest that I've had since I was a kid, it's the one on the right, with gingerbread man buttons.  the second outfit is a reindeer with Christmas lights, I imaging this would light up when the nose is pressed or something.  Trying to work on a New Years doll, but may not be done in time.  Thanks to Julie and Rachel for all the wonderful outfits they designed this year and agreeing to go another round!

Be sure to check out the other blogs participating in this collaboration project.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Seasons Greetings

My second Christmas season paper doll this year, and in color!  This doll was inspired by this card on pinterest here.  She has 10 outfits, all with matching hats/head wear including a Santa suit, an Angel costume and a Christmas tree dress along with some caroling garb and warm winter coats.  This will be my last post until Christmas is over.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays card

This year I designed this card, inspired by a certain famous fashion doll and her holiday outfits.  The first page is the front cover and back of the card with the second page placed on the back side of the first, with each  of the other pages on top of it (does that make sense!?).  It would be folded in the middle and stapled together. She has 9 full outfits and 3 bottoms for the outfit she is wearing, along with 3 pairs of shoes, 7 hair pieces, a few purses and lots of tiny accessories.  The inside reads "Warmest thoughts and best wishes for a joyful holiday season.  May your days be filled with magic and cheer!" with enough room to sign and leave a message of your own.  I don't know if I will have time to color this, I'm working on another paper doll as well right now!

For You Nana at Christmas

I don't collect Christmas cards... but I found this one at a store last year and had to have it!  This adorable card is from American Greeting.  No date.  The front says For you Nana at Christmas with a darling illustration of a little girl caroling, she has a flocked outfit.  Inside the card is another drawing of the little girl on the left, under it is written PS where's my bag of cookies Nana, huh?  The right side has the saying "Wishing you a Christmas day that you'll spend happily 'cause you're the nicest Nana there ever, ever could be!" and it is signed.
