Here is my card! I have to tell you that I had a really great time coloring this sweet little raggedy doll! Some of you know that I like to make dolls, and raggedies are a particular favorite. In fact, I've started a new one that I hope to finish soon. I felt the need to stitch one after I colored this digital one up! lol
