This is an old stamp I haven't used in ages but it felt like a Raggedy Ann day (I also have the matching Raggedy Andy). Of course authentic Raggedy Anns have an "I Love You" heart on them..I know..I've sewn 5 or 6 of the dolls. I couldn't fit the whole message on my heart so I used symbols apropos to the sentiment.

Well isn't she just as cute as can be - I love this image. And perfect use of this week's color challenge. I especially like the eyelet die to frame her as well as the twine and heart. Sure put a smile on my face - adorable!!!!

Polly, I've said it before, but you have the most wonderful collection of "out of the ordinary" stamps. This Raggedy Ann would make anyone smile. (Sometimes I think I look like this! : ) ) Your paper piecing is terrific and the wonderful mix of DPs is so "Polly". Really a delightful card!
