Greetings From Mimi

Hello Everyone
Let us catch-up with Mimi.
onceIn the month of May, Mimi took the time to help a sweet person celebrate her day, Betty.  For Mimi, this was the perfect opportunity to dress up in her finest and don her straw boater.
Mimi has been in a creative mood of late.  Since the arrival of Springtime, she has found herself searching through her wardrobe, looking for pieces to be titivated.twoA straw boater, which really had seen better days, was calling out for a little make-over, so, with a nose tickling feather and cluster of fabric flowers, Mimi brought some life back into an old favourite.
threeOf course, she was having so much fun she could not stop at brightening up only the boater.  She could not resist snipping off the buttons from the bodice of her dress, instead replacing them with some rhinestone buttons.  Now, this outfit would be most celebratory for when she greeted her friend.  A sweet yellow primrose fabric flower to adorn the bow on the bodice and why stop there, what about some puffy lace to the sleeves.fourGosh!  Look at the time.  Mimi grabs the book she bought for Betty, a beautiful edition of Little Women and a bouquet of delicately scented flowers from Mimi’s window box.fiveOops! I do get carried away with those paper dolls!!!
Mimi was made as an alternative to a birthday card for my dear Mum.  I have been sharing the outcome of completed paper dolls with my Mum so thought it would be nice to finally make one for her.
sixThe stamps are all Character Constructions and are available from HERE, shipping worldwide.sevenIf any of you are interested in the individual stamps I inked up to complete this paper doll, then please contact me and I can provide all the details.  Eleven individual stamps in total, form Mimi, from head to toe.
Many thanks for your visit to this post as I always appreciate your visits and comments.

    Oh Lynne x how wonderful Mimi looks in her gorgeous straw boater and fabulous dress. You have incorporated the most wonderful details and as always I enjoyed the story along the way.

    She looks a darling all dressed up for a happy birthday visit.
    Her lovely dress, with all the little lovely adds, of flowers, roses, and beautiful ribbons,- the wonderful stamps you use so great, it all created a Mimi, in a new and more festive dress situation, I think, and looking so full of mischief, in the most sweet way !!
    Lynne what a dear card for your mother.

    Absolutely sweet! The card and the new look for Mimi! What a wonderful surprise your mum. I’m sure it was a highlight to her birthday. The added flowers and lace really has Mimi spruced up! I love the wispy look of the ribbon and threads that have tied your birthday wishes onto her. I love making up stories for my creations and you always to a wonderful job, Lynne. inkybru xx

    That’s a wonderful post Lynne, I adore seeing Mimi again and reading this new story. She’s such a BEAUTY. And she’s so wonderfully dressed tonight!!! In a way different from what was originally the one you chose, that’s so interesting and inspiring!
    Feeling well the joy you must have had to create this one for your dear mum…. 🙂

    I haven’t forgotten about you of course Lynne, but I’m sick at the moment in addition to the rest (June is an overwhelmed period for me) so crafting can only be done at spaced intervals and it’s not the best conditions to create something beautiful for my friends… please be patient my lovely friend 🙂
    Hugs and happy Sunday, Coco xxx
