Thanks! It is amazing how many dolls they can make in a set. When I was googling I found sets of 30 dolls!!

Rooskie, you're on the waiting list, and Scrappylicious, I can add you if you'd like. Once I get through my first 3 trades and can host unlimited, I'm going to do Round 2, so even if you stay on the waiting list, I'll let you know for the next go!

Has anyone seen the new video game with nesting dolls? I think it's called Stacking. I played the demo on xBox and it is cute.

Kavka, your cards are great! I was wondering if anyone would stray from the traditional doll theme..
I have traditional dolls and a Santa stack and Snowman stack. Does anyone have any unique nesters?

JenCreates

Pikkis

Okay, I finished my cards last night and here they are... I had this one napkin with these nesting dolls and I made all the cards using the same images. I tried to add other different elements on each card so that they are not quite similar. I hope thatīs ok! Iīll pm for your address JenCreates.

PS: I donīt know any Russian so I have no idea what the texts Iīve used are saying. I hope nothing rude (LOL)...

JenCreates
04-17-2011, 10:50 AM
