...Cleaver that is... and I'm okay with that! With all of her glorious motherly ways.
I want to be the mom who bakes, sews and knits.
The only issue is... I don't really do any of those things well, so here's me sharing with you all my 101's.
Laugh with me or at me, I don't care. I just hope I can evolve during this process!

Zakka Life Nesting Dolls

I came across this great printable template on Pinterest. And as soon as I did, I knew who the first one would be for. My mother in law, she loves Nesting Dolls. Her collection is amazing. And hey, who doesn't need to give their mother in law a most awesome card?
Actually, there's no 'need' here, just a want! Seriously. She loves me.
Okay enough about that. You're here for the card.

Find the template over on Zakka Life.

Here's my version of the Matryoshka Doll Card.

I used a wallpaper sample I had around, card stock and manila folder for their faces.

I glued the card stock template to the back of the wallpaper to make it sturdy. I let it dry over night. I take no chances!

I did not give the ladies neckerchiefs as Zakka Life did. I knew there was a huge chance of mucking it up. I'm NOT a great artist. I had to draw the faces twice to get them decent! I'd share the photo I took of them all but I'm not in the mood to have you all point and laugh.


Seriously cute.

And they really do 'nest' perfectly.
Happy Birthday Judy!
