I AM IN LOVE ......

.... with a card that my artist friend Peggy Gatto sent me. She has this awesome blog where I visit at least once a week to grab some inspiration from her amazing works of art. The card she sent me is a vintage reproduction of a paper doll from Laughing Paper dolls was one of the weekly art challenge invitations this year over at Inspiration Avenue. I told Peggy I would reveal what I did with her card. I could not resist cutting it up and with LOVE in the air, this is what I created with it.


She is a MUSIC BOX Mixed Media Art Doll Assemblage. She is standing on a box that can hold your Cherished items, WISHES, DREAMS, or Valentine sentiments. She is not just for Valentines Day...She is for DREAMERS...

The top of her box has words that say:

"If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do"

Whether you are near or afar...all you have to do is Wish Upon A Star ~*

She was made by Hand and inspired by Life.
She stands 5 1/2" by 1 1/2" and comes to life with song when you turn her hand crank handle.

On the back side, there is a card attached to her that can you can write a note or a date.

This is her song:

WISH UPON A STAR ..........Performed by Jimini Cricket, Lyrics by Ned Washington

When you wish upon a Star
Makes no difference where you are
Anything your Heart desires
Will Come to you

If your Heart is in your Dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a Star
as Dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those to Love
The Sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a Star
Your Dreams come True
