Santa's Little Helper by Jenn Cochran

Hello PND friends and followers.  Jenn here from Jax Bean Stalks.  I cannot believe tomorrow is already Thanksgiving!  It has come so fast this year.  

Did you see my turkey card I created using Pilgrim Owen (I cut Owen out and just used the turkey)?  You can take a peek and see the happy little turkey.  Let me know what you think!

I have to switch gears from fall and Thanksgiving cards to Christmas cards.  I LOVE all the red and green.  What are your favorites about holiday projects?  

My card today features Santa Owen.  Isn't he just adorable with his bag full of goodies!!!  You can find other PND images with the Holiday theme here.

Check out his fur.  I used puff paint to give it some dimension.  So much fun to have a puffy element in the holiday cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Do you get all the latest PND posts?  If not, there are a couple of different ways to follow this blog.  Look to the right an choose.  We would LOVE to see you back.  Plus you never know when there will be a giveaway!  Don't miss out on a second of  PND news!

Christmas Bella

This is our new image, Christmas Bella, which is inspired by Santa Lucia.  You can check out Jill Hansen's blog at to see her creations.  I will paste her entry for you to read here.

Some days ago I told Christine, the wonderful owner of Paper Nest Dolls about my daughter Gabriella.
For those of you that don't know me that much,- Bella is my 5 year old and she is my sweetheart ♥
Gabriella is in kindergarden when I work and she loves it very much, and this is her last year before she start school next year. The last weeks we have been talking a lot about Lucia. In Norway we celebrate Santa Lucia on Dec. 13th and all the kids go in a parade in the street singing in the dark that morning with candles and long, white dresses. It is beautiful I can tell you... I cry every time..
Every year one of the oldest girls get to go in front of the parade with a crown with lights and all the girls are hoping to be the lucky one. My Bella too, and I know she will be so disappointed if she's not the one..
So Christine drew a Lucia Bella for me so I can make her something nice she can have to remember that day, with or without a crown with lights.
You can see a video on my blog !! HERE 

The work done on this project is stunning.  The image is colored beautifully, surrounded by beautiful embellishments.  Just looking at this card inspires me, and I hope to see this parade some day .  The description of the special day provides a vivid image, and the beauty in the card both on the cover and inside provide a window into the feelings and emotions that surround this celebration that occurs in Norway on Dec 13th.  I hope Jill can provide pictures of this parade for all of us to see and appreciate.  Happy Holidays.

Missing the summer allready...........

Hi there! Its my (Eva Gro) time to give you some inspiration today:-)
I just had to make a summer card!! - I`m allready missing the summer, and tired of the cold weather! Hope this card will give some others a little bit of warmth as well:-)

Counting Sheep Avery

So it's Lydia here with you today on the Paper Nest Dolls blog and I have chosen one of my faves from the Nursery Rhyme release, Counting Sheep Avery....

How cute is she?!?!?! And teamed up with Graphic 45's Mother Goose is just a match made in heaven.

This has got to be one of my absolute favourites from Christine. Avery's dress is stunning, and the little sheep are just so cute. I also love that she is part of a scene and what a beautiful little scene it is!

Well that's it from me, I really hoped you like what you saw . 

See you soon, hugs Lydia xxx
