I am home from work today... a bad Lupus attack... I tried to get dressed and just couldn't... so I have rested all morning... trying unsuccessfully to sleep.... this little angel has been on my mind all morning!!...she was inspired by a frig magnet at work... I worked on her on my Gypsy last night...and finally decided to finish her up... so maybe I could sleep... I am taking her a sign from God that he is taking care of me and in the morning I will feel better enough to work...usually a day in bed will do it... so back to bed after this post!! Thank you so much for looking... hugs, Jeannie
Paper Doll Dress Up
Dress cut @ w 3.50 x h 4.96.
I used an oval from George to alter the shape of the dress...I wanted it to be a dress from the side..the dress on PDDU was from the front and too wide...I also added circles in the scalloped bottom to dress up the dress.
Hair cut @ w 2.21 x h 4.41.
If I make this again I would cut two more hair pieces to add to the layers like I did the face circles.
Indy Art
Wings cut @ w 2.30 x h 1.82.
I did cut two of these..accidently deleted one from the mat before the picture.
Circle cut @ w 1.40 x h 1.31
Circle that adds nose cut @ h0.16 x w 0.15.
You need to weld these together.
Circles on each end cut @ w 0.32 x h 0.30
Rectangle cut @ w 0.36 x h 1.04
These items are welded together.
Oval for altering the dress cut @ w 1.13 x h 3.02.
Circles to dress up scallops on dress cut @ w 1.13 x h 3.04.
Do NOT weld these items to the dress so they will cut through the dress.
Puffy Sleeve
Larger circle cut @ w 0.70 x h 0.65.
3 Smaller circles cut @ w 0.17 x h 0.16.
Weld all four of these together to create the sleeve.
Beyond Birthdays
Dove cut @ w 1.34 x h 1.04...with twig trimmed away.
Joys of the Season
"joy" cut @ w 1.78 x h 0.98.
Picture of the screen I used to cut from...another wing needs to be added I accidently deleted one off before the picture... delete the notes at top of screen before cutting.

I love all of your work but I must say that "Angel Earning Her Halo" is by far my favorite. I have placed you in my prayers for healing. Thank you for continuing to share even though you don't always feel your best.
