Sneak Preview - Practically Perfect

Are you ready for another VERVEalicious release? On Sunday, March 8th, Verve is releasing 8 new sets and 5 Plain Janes!!!! Can you stand it? Stay tuned this week to catch a peek at the new sets! Today we have a sneak preview of Practically Perfect for you!


You knew when Verve introduced a baby set it would be classy and adorable and chock full of fabuous sentiments! Well that's exactly the way it is!

I chose to go with the girl and pink, since both my babies fell into that category! I pulled out some old designer paper, added pearls, flowers and Cotton Candy stickles and tied it off with pink ribbon! Don't you just love all those "girlie" things? A perfect little acknowledgement for a new little bundle of joy! Recipe: Stamps: Practically Perfect (Verve), Paper: PTI Whte, Pirouette Pink, Holiday Happenings DP, Ink: Versafine Onyx Black Accessories: Labels one (Spellbinders), Watercolour crayons & aquapainter, Pirouette Pink ribbon, dimensionals (SU), Prima Flowers, adhesive pearls (Michaels), Cotton Candy Stickles (Ranger)



from Guest Diva Jodi Collins:


Practically Perfect is my favorite set of this release!! I just adore this sassy little bunny with her big hair bow and fancy necklace and she is so much fun to color! This set is full of wonderful sentiments that just make my heart melt! I just know I will use this set over and over making cards for all the little people in my life.













from Diva Charmaine Ikach:
I thought the Practically Perfect set was not "practically" perfect, but absolutely perfect! The ADORABLE bunny images (both boy and girl bunnies) and the perfect sentiments (14 of them to be exact!) to go with the bunnies make this set a "must have" for all your baby needs. Not only is it perfect for the "welcome" and "congrats" cards you need to make, it's perfect for the "little miracle" and "praying for baby" cards too!



Like what you see? Well, this Verve-alicious set could be coming home to you! Just leave us a comment with the answer to the following question (see below) by Sunday March 8 at Noon (Mountain Time) and you could be the lucky winner! Winners will be announced at our release party on Sunday night (it starts at 8 PM ET in the Verve Forum on SCS—so mark your calendar NOW)! And for even more chances to win Verve goodies, be sure to participate in this week’s Mojo Monday sketch contest on the Mojo Monday Blog. Thanks for stopping by!

Kay said...

I had two that I can remember; one was a stuffed monkey holding a plastic banana (I think my baby brother chewed the banana up), and a stuffed koala.

Wendy said...

OMG, I can't wait for the release! I have been waiting for the perfect baby set and this might be it! My fave toy was probably my brothers!!! LOL Ok, my cabbage patch doll!

Tricia said...

What a sweet set! Ummm... my favorite toy(s) were my two Breyer horses. I really didn't have a lot of toys that weren't hand-me-downs from 4 older brothers and sisters, and the horses were my *very own*.

Maria Gurnsey said...

This set is so sweet!! I love the sentiments (no surprise there)!!!
My fave childhood toy was a stuffed pig. I use to take it for bike rides with me and cried the day he fell off and got dirty. I think my mom still has him :)

Crafty Engineering said...

Fvorite toy really depended on my age. The big ones I can remember are my Cabbage Patch Doll, Dodie (still have her), my Teddy Bear, Max (still have him), and legos (used to make all sorts of stuff with those legos!)

Rebecca said...

Oh my gosh! These stamps are perfect for baby cards. My favorite childhood toy was a teddy bear my brothers gave me my first Christmas. He has the most adorable little bib with an apple on it, and if you squeeze the middle of his tummy (only once a day, he's getting old) he makes the cutest squeaking sound. I still have and love my bear, and let me son use it now. He takes such good care of Teddy that it makes me heart melt.

SusanR said...

What a cute stamp set - and great samples! My favorite toy would have been my Holly Hobby doll my mom made me. I took that thing everywhere!

Debbie V said...

My favorite childhood toy was a small brown hard plastic bear that had moveable arms and legs and it squeaked when you squeezed his tummy.

Beautiful stamp set, as usual.

Debbie

Harriet said...

OK, I'm dating myself, but my favorite toy was a Chatty Cathy doll! You pulled a string at the back of her neck and she said things! I played with her so much that she had to be sent to the doll hospital to get her voice back!! Looking forward to this new release!

Gloria said...

My favorite toy was a crib that my father made me. He took such care in making it perfect and gave one to me and my sister. Our baby dolls were never so comfortable. Gosh I haven't thought of that crib in ages. This stamp set is just absolutely perfect for baby cards. I love Verve Stamps and the sentiments are just perfect for every occation. Thanks for the wonderful product.

AuBien said...

My favorite childhood toy was my Fashion Plates. You used them to emboss the shape of a girl on your paper. Then you could emboss patterns on her clothes to give her whatever kind of stylish wear you wanted. Kindof like embossing and coloring images that I do now with stamps! I still have my original set and the add on I received later. Love love love that toy!

Amy said...

That is an adorable stamp set and the designers have created fabulous cards with it. My favorite toy was my Barbie doll. She went everywhere with me and my barbie was totally styling with a barbie mansion, a convertible and a posh little puppy (kinda like Paris Hilton today.....hmmmmm I wonder if she had the same Barbie stuff as I did....LOL).

Mary said...

Oh, wow... I cannot tell you HOW EXCITED I ma that Verve is releasing a BABY set!! CANNOT WAIT to see all the sure-to-be-fantastic sentiments. Whew, exhale! :)

I always have a hard time picking *one* favorite, so I will post the first thing that came to my mind: a Sit 'N Spin!

Anonymous said...

What an adorable stamp set. My favorite childhood toy was my Ms. Beasley doll. I carried her with me everywhere I went.

Linda Bandow said...

I love this set!...Verve has done it again! My favorite toy was a doll with fiber molded head, arms and legs and a cloth body....I tried to wash her hair and cracked open the top of her head, into which I dropped pennies. Her name was Shookie....I wish I still had her.

Elizabeth said...

My favorite toy when I was a child was a stuffed brown dog with floppy ears. He wore a checkered vest with a matching beret.

Shannon said...

Very sweet set. I am pregnant with my first so this is perfect. I have blue vibes but my husband is all over pink. My favorite toy was My Little Ponies and my Strawberry Shortcake doll.

Steph K (booga3) said...

What adorable creations! Can't wait to see the entire set!

My favorite toy as a child was a small stuffed Snoopy. He went everywhere with him (and I still have him) - he got dirty and at one time his head almost came off (luckily mom sewed it before it did!).

Karyl Lee said...

Definitely my "Zippy Scissors". They were shaped like a bee, plugged in and I could create wonderful works of paper art! Yep, I've been a paper crafting addict forever!

Jennifer McGee said...

Gorgeous sneak peeks! I would have to say that my favorite toys were my Cabbage Patch Doll and Barbies.

Alyssa said...

Lucky #21!! Cute bunnies and sentiments! My favorite toy was a stuffed Mickey Mouse that a friend gave to me. Thanks for the chance! :o)

hobbydiva said...

One of my fave toys was my big makeup Barbie head! OMGOsh! I hadn't thought of that in a long time....LOL!!! I am sooo looking forward to another release!

AHadley said...

I didn't have just one, but my favorite toys were my My Little Ponies. I played with them for YEARS...probably too long, LOL!
Love the bunny, it's just adorable.

mustangsarah said...

Omg, this set is so sweet.
The sentiments are adorable.
My fab toy was a teddy bear.
I remember taking it everywhere.
Maybe thats why I still collect them and love them so much.

Allison said...

Hmm.. That's a tough one. I think my cookie monster counter was my favourite toy! Funny enough, my fiance actually had it too!

Angel said...

oh my, this set looks absolutely darling! fave childhood toy?? probably my barbies.

kolling143 said...

Mine was a baby doll that I used to carry around by it's hair....so much that it permanently stayed that way!! OH, I almost forgot my blankie!!

Jackie said...

How adorable are these previews! I can't wait to get my hands on this set, its just too cute! I had a stuffed doll that I called Amanda, that doll came every where with me, I just loved that doll...I think I still have it some where. Still love that little Amanda.

HeyHeyPaula said...

What an adorable set. My favorite toy was my baby doll. I took her everywhere with me and we had some fun tea parties.

Anonymous said...

My favourite "toy" was actually sewing toys and clothes for my dolls.

Melisa Hunter

Catherine aka ScrapsOnABudget said...

Wow that is a hard question. My Grandma had the best toys. She had one that had a handle with 2 strings that rand through a round disk to another handle. You got it going by pulling the handles and the disk would wind up and then unwind. I loved spinning that thing! Grandma's are the best!

Kristina said...

My favorite toy was probably the cabbage patch baby I received on the day my little sister was born. I had my own baby to take care of so I wouldn't get jealous. I still have that cabbage patch baby to this day!

kathy said...

this is absolutely adorable. My favorite toy was my crayons & pencils to draw with.

Becky Carafa said...

My favorite toy that I remember was all my Barbie stuff. Fun question!

Tracey said...

What an adorable set and these projects are gorgeous!!

My favourite toy as a child is easy. It was the dollhouse my Dad made for my sister and I. I loved it!! It was huge and had real tiles on the floor and shingles on the roof. Sad ending to this story though - we had a housefire when I was younger and it didn't make it through. I still miss that house, especially now when I have a daughter who would get enjoyment out of it. :(

Melissa said...

My favorite toy would have to be my Barbie's!!!! I am a girly girl at heart!

Anonymous said...

The stamps are so adorable but can we expect anything less?!
My favorite toy was a handmade long legged raggedy ann doll that I carried everywhere until my cousin Billy took her and cut off her head. My sister-in-law made a replica for my daughter when she was born and we kept her out of the hands of her boy cousins.
Marcelle (stamping thyme)

Chandra Hough said...

I had a Chatty Cathy doll that I dearly loved. My grandmother made a whole wardrobe of wonderful clothes. Wherever we went, I took my doll with me, and I would dress her in pajamas at night and a dress in the morning. What fun!

Dawn Easton said...

Oh wow....all the samples are gorgeous girls! That bunny is simply adorable!
My fave toy as a child was my roller skates...you know...the ones with four wheels...lol! I used to roller skate from our house to my Grandma's all the time! Thanks for the chance to win!

Lisa Hjulberg said...

What a cute stamp! It's precious!

My favorite toy by far was my doll Kissy. I actually have another one in my craft room, which I bought on eBay a few years ago when I was feeling nostalgic. Kissy keeps me company when I stamp.

Kathy W said...

My favorite childhood toy was books. I couldn't get enough of them, and I read all the time. Thanks for the chance to win; what an adorable bunny, and I love the projects from the design team.

Teresa Kline aka va.sunshine said...

I am thrilled about this weekend....new Verve is sooo exciting. My favorite childhood toy was my Easy Bake Oven and of course my Barbies and her groovy Van.

Anonymous said...

My favorite toy was a stuffed dog which I still have. Carol Cooper

Kayla D said...

My favorite childhood toy was a huge stuffed bear that I got for Christmas. I named him "Chilly Willie" after an amazing dog that I saw on a talk show shortly after I got the bear. I know; the weird things that kids come up with! I still have that bear tucked away waiting for my children...
I *love* this new set- you are right, it's the perfect baby set!

Stephanie Hargis said...

Alright...embarrassing moment for me! :D I am not sure if you can call it a toy but I will say it anyway! My favorite "toy" as a child was my blankie. I carried it everywhere! If we went on a bike ride, it went with me. If we rode our horses, it went with me. Now...the embarrassing part. I didn't give it up until I was a senior in high school and ended up losing it! Haha! I was mortified that it was gone. I even cried! :D Ok...there you go...that's my story! This little bunny is absolutely adorable and I have really been needing a baby set! Woohoo! Beautiful creations girls! I love all three of them!

puttchen10 said...

I believe it was a baby tender love that my sisters and I got the year they came out. Hmmm, I think I still have it somewhere along with her handmade clothing. This bunny is too cute!! Thanks so much for the chance to win.

spikescreativeside said...

She is totally a sweet bunny!!
My favourite toy was my stuffed teddy bear, all chewed up and practically falling to pieces and I took him wherever I went.

~Spike

Sherry said...

My favorite toy as a young child was a sandbox my father made for me. It had a striped canvas cover
that could be lowered at night to
keep all the neighboorhood varmints
out! I played there for hours on
end. And when my brother came along five years later, he spent
many hours playing there as well.
Awesome stamp set....looking forward to the release on Sunday.

Sherry

Ravengirl said...

Love the little bunny and the sentiments are perfect! I had a little (mini) upright piano. I would play and sing and then play and sing some more! I loved it and I am sure that my mother tired of it!!!

Creative Daze said...

The bunny is the cutest. My favorite toy was my Barbie dolls.

Justine said...

My Gerber Baby!!!!!!!! She fit in real baby clothes and newborn diapers. I loved her so much that I decided to trade her in for a "real" baby at the ripe ole age of 16!! OOPs.....

cathygalloway89 said...

That stamp is "perfect in every way". I love it! My favorite toy when I was a kid was a talking sea monster stuffed toy.

southernscraps said...

Cute stamp! I had a favorite brown bear and a stuffed dog that looked like Snoopy but wore a dress.

Janet S said...

I received a stuffed Panda Bear for my first Christmas. I played with that bear until it about fell apart when I was about 8. Thanks for the good memory and for a chance to win some great stamps!

Starry7678 said...

The set is adorable, my favorite toy.......I didn't have alot of toys-so it would have to be my imagination-I had to think up whatever I wanted to do!

Margaret said...

I can't wait for the new releases!My favorite childhood toys were a plastic water gun and those little pinwheels on a stick. My aunt and uncle would bring us one of each when they would come to visit every summer.They were simple,inexpensive toys,but we always felt so special!

jules p said...

This one is easy....Ms. Beasley! I love that doll.

Lynda Benden said...

AWESOME samples girls!! Congratulations Jodi for being a guest Diva!!! My favorite toy was a doll that would whine when I would tilt her back and then forward. Her head fell off and I cried and cried until my Mom sewed it back on!!! LOL!!! Now I have REAL babies that whine!!! LOL!!

Mama Tuttle said...

I had two favorite childhood toys: a pooh bear that my girls play with 32 years later and books . . . although they are not a toy . . . I was always armed with one!! By the way . . I LOVE THOSE STAMPS!!

Kim said...

I had a big doll called Chrissy and she had lovely long red hair - until I cut it off! I think this little bunny is adorable and can't wait to see the rest of the set.

Rosemary D. said...

fav toy as a kid? probably my krissy doll. her hair could be made long or short. for some reason i just loved doing that!

Prettier Stuff said...

Great Sneak samples, love the stamp and I can't wait to see them all. My favorite toy that I remember was my Gerber Baby 9and later Chattie Cathy) I remember the way the Gerber Baby smelled. I got her for Christmas one year. Wow! what a nice thought. Thanks.
Melissa

stampsinblue said...

Barbies all the way! I remember getting new Barbies for every occasion- Christmas, birthday, good report card. My sister and I got the Dream House one Christmas & I have many memories of us playing with that!

Dawn said...

I had a doll named Crissy whose hair really grew. I took her everywhere! I can't wait for the release!

melissa.flieg said...

Beautiful baby set. The sentiments are beautiful as always. My favorite toy as a child had to be my barbies. Me and my sister would play with them for hours.

DawnB said...

Great stamps, first time here and already enabled!! I truly adore the baby stamp set...haven't searched your entire site yet and I am already excited!! My fav toy(s) were Alvin and the Chipmunks. When I was a kid there really wasn't much money and my parents knew I adored these three little guys so every christmas for three years I got one of the chipmunks. I thought it took forever to get the set but as a adult and a mother, I now understand how it must have tore my parents heart up to make me wait year after year. Thank you :)

Melina said...

A little grey stuffed mouse I called "beanie". He had a long black tail. I can still remember crawling around holding him by the tail, in my mouth. I couldn't go to sleep without him everynight and he was REALLY stuffed with beans!

Michelle (aka mybelle101) said...

Oh, I love that saying!! I'm a huge Mary Poppins fan, and now my boys have caught the bug thanks to the 45th anniversary release :)

My favorite childhood toys were actually my brothers...LEGOS! lol :) It's a good thing, too, because my little guys are obsessed with them ;)

Kristyn Sinnott said...

My favorite toy would have to have been my barbies or my "Tessie" doll with the hair that you could lengthen. I loved dolls of all shapes and sizes. My mom sewed all of their beautiful wardrobes for them. I had the best dressed dolls in the neighborhood. Ahh, wonderful memories.

I can't wait for this release!!!

Kerri said...

This set is just too cute! My favorite toys were Barbies : ) I played with them constantly!

Marisa said...

Favorite childhood toy was probably my bike. I wasn't into dolls or Barbies at all - had a neighbourhood of boys so I was always building forts, climbing trees etc. with them.

Jessica said...

Definitely Barbies! I had about 50 Barbies and 10 or so Kens and played with them all the time! I still have them in the attic at my parents' house, just waiting to be played with when I have a daughter!

Susan said...

Well, since I slept with it until I was the ripe old age of 13 (!!!) I would have to say my stuffed Teddy Bear that I had for as long as I can remember.

Olivia M. said...

I have two totally different favorites--one was a fire engine you sat in and peddled to make it run (all steel by the way) and my baby Chrissy doll with her dark brown hair and eyes.

Terri E. said...

My favorite childhood toy was my Horses. I guess that is cheating, but I loved them all so much.

It's a good life!
Terri E.

Anonymous said...

Chatty Cathy...Still have it, even though it doesn't "speak clearly" anymore. I just can't bare to throw it away.

sarah said...

i love these sentiments!! my favorite childhood toy had to have been my younger brother and sister...and maybe my barbies.

Janine said...

This is an easier one - my little pink peter rabbit - he was tiny and so was I when I was born.

Anonymous said...

I remember playing with paper dolls a lot - the ones that had clothes with little tabs to hold them onto the cardboard dolls (yep, I'm dating myself!!) I also spent a lot of time coloring. This stamp set would be perfect since I have had 2 new grandsons in the last 2 months. Love the bunny!

leenda said...

Your design team ROCKS! My favorite toy...was probably my little sister!!!

Janelle said...

My very favorite thing to play with as a child was paper dolls. And my very favorite paper dolls were the ones I made myself using people cut from old sewing pattern books. My mom was a home ec teacher and had the books in her classroom -- when she got new ones, the old ones came to me. I was one lucky, paper-loving girl. And I still am (paper-loving anyway, we'll see about lucky)!

anne-marie said...

My favorite toy was my Gerber doll... my mom sewed a bunch of little dresses for me to change outfits on it.

Michelle said...

This set is sooo sweet.

My fav childhood toy would have to be my stuffed bears.

Nikki Schmaltz said...

this set is sooo stinking cute I can't wait for it! My favorite toy was my collection of Strawberry shortcake dolls and my inchworm.

sukes7 said...

Aw this set is so adorable I have a new little grandaughter so the saying is perfect just like her. My fave childhood toy was a tiny tears doll I loved babies way back then too lol,

Chriss Blagrave said...

my etch a sketch and Raggedy Ann & Andy and a doll called baby one step!

angie said...

I loved my Strawberry Shortcake! She smelled sooooo good! And when she came back out a few years ago, I made sure I bought some of her and her friends for my girls!

Thanks for the giveaway! I LOVE the bunny!

elaine said...

This bunny is adorable! I can't wait to see all the releases! My favorite toy (now I'm gonna be telling my age) was a bride doll made by Deluxe Reading. You could get the bride or attendants and I asked for the bride. My Mom didn't have much to buy with and stuck with necessities. But for Christmas, I got that bride doll. She was always my favorite and I cried when my brother let his dog tear her up!

Sassy Scrapin' said...

This set is ADORABLE! Oh my, it would have to be the baby that you could feed and she wet on you...or my cabbage patch babies. :-)

Sonya said...

My favorite was a doll named Baby Tenderlove...I sure miss her..hehe

Inkey Pingers said...

Okay, so I cannot for the life of me come up with a favorite toy, Instead, I just keep thinking of my toy box! I had this big white elephant toy box with big polk-a-dots all over it and we used to empty that sucker out and play inside or we would put the lid on and ride it! I had so much fun with that stinkin toy box! Can't wait til Sun!

pammy jo said...

what a cute little bunny, and great samples! i loved my Chrissy doll with her growing hair. does anyone else remember those dolls? i think she had a blond little sister, but i can't remember her name...

Sharon said...

I loved my Fisher Price Garage and house set...the type from the early 70's with the wood people. Still have it and my daughter played with them, too.

Anonymous said...

Please don't laugh....my favorite toy was a sling shot. Growing up in the country with a lot of neighborhood boys made me enjoy all the antics of those fun loving guys. Hey, I was a darn good slinger and my aim was as good or better than them. Great great memories. MarilynY

Michelle said...

I'm gonna have to go with books....wasn't really in to toys all that much...but I loved to read and escape; which is what cardmaking does for me now. Thanks for the contest!

Cheri Howard said...

My Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy were my favorites!

Deb said...

I would have to say my barbies. I would sit and play with them for hours--and my brothers GI joe, but we wont tell him that. Always wanting to marry barbie off with Joe-LOL. Thanks for the trip down memory lane

Nancy said...

I loved my Crissy doll! She had hair that would "grow" and you could style it and then you could wind it back into her head so it could grow again. She also said a number of things - that is until my younger sister broke it! Yeah, she broke it on christmas day - the very day I got her! *sigh* She still owes me.... LOL!

DebbyG said...

A small cloth doll "Mr Blinky" - he was repaired so many times by my Gram!

Charlene Waymire said...

One of my favorite childhood toys was the Easy Bake oven. I can remember "baking" with that thing endlessly. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Janette said...

This is just a gorgeous baby set (what I have seen LOL)! My favorite childhood toys were definitely Barbies. I had tons of them along with the house, furniture and clothes to go with them.

Amy said...

My stuff bunny named chuckles.
He's cute and had big cheeks.

Fae said...

Thank you for the chance to win such a cute set. My favorite toy as a child was the can of pick up sticks at my grandparents house. My grandpa used to play with me and my brother. He had worked so hard through the years, that his fingers were bent in all directions, but he still had the gentlest touch, picking up those sticks. After he passed away, I checked, and they were still right where he kept them. I have them now, and what great memories they hold.

Cindy Vernon said...

Probably barbies! What a fabulous stamp set. Can't wait until the release!

Deborah said...

Oh my gosh! These sneak peeks are making me want the 8th to hurry and get here!

My favorite toy was a blue puppy dog with floppy ears. I got it from my grammy when I was five. It went with me everywhere. If it was left behind somewhere, my parents would have to go get it or I wouldn't go to sleep without it! In fact I still have it (which means it is 50yrs old..LOL!!!!)

Lisa said...

Cute Bunny!

Favorite childhood toy? I remember several.... a stuffed "Flipper" that I got for Christmas when I was 3. My rollerskates were a fave. And can't forget the Hot Wheels that I used to run down the banister and try and nail my sister with because my mother wouldn't buy me any track for them (evil grin)

Crafty Cath said...

With a name like Cathy born in the 60's - my favorite toy was my Chatty Cathy Doll. She went everywhere with me! Thanks for bringing out that memory...it actually made me chuckle.

Sissy is having a baby soon and this set would be a great set...lovely photo card.

Kim C. said...

I love the precious bunny, it is so cute.
My favorite toy was my Mrs. Beasley. I pulled her string so much to make her talk that after awhile she talked 100 minles a minute in jibberish. I think she is still packed in my parents basement.

Gretchen said...

Woo Hoo for a new release! Love that little bunny! My favorite childhood toy was probably my little people house and farm! We played with them for hours at a time!

Susan said...

I didnt have a soft toy that i know of, only a big hard plastic doll that i still have. i think this new set is fabulous, would love to have them.

LorieM said...

How precious are these!!! My favorite toy as a child was a washing machine--part of a kitchen appliance set. It was small, this was the 50s after all, but you could turn a handle on the side and make the agitator move. I loved mechanical things. My dad's socket wrenches were fun to play with, too. I loved the sound they made.

My favorite toy was my Cabbage Patch kid.
I waited forever to get one, and I was so happy I played nwith her constantly!

Anna Havanka (annascreations) said...

So sweet!

My favourite childhood toy, I honestly can't really remember! I think it was this stuffed lion that had gotten it's tail cut off at one point and it's fur was all fizzled from getting too close to the wood stove.

Crystal said...

I had so many ... roller skates and Chatty Cathy and trolls with their little house... anyone that old ? heheh

Caryl P said...

Hmmm....I had many toys that I loved, especially stuffed animals. The first one I recalled was a tiny teddy bear that I called Baby Bear. Don't know where he came from, but there was a big bear too and since he was small he was the baby. I took him EVERYWHERE!

Sue D said...

My favorite was my Tiny Tears doll--does that tell you how old I am?

Marian Berggren said...

My favorite was a blue pedal car that my brother and I would ride in. You had to push the pedals with your feet to make it move and we would go all over the yard. No cement or pavement for us!
Cute stamp set!

Jazy Girl said...

My favorite childhood toy was a blue floppy dog with a zipper pocket where I would hide graham crackers in it (EW!).

msfreida said...

Y'all are killing us with these sneak peeks! I can't wait to see the entire set!

I'm not sure I can remember back that far! LOL! I do recall a doll my grandmother made me that had button eyes that she was forever having to replace the buttons on. What I would give to still have that doll today! Thanks for the memory!

Easy bake oven with all the mixes! Now buying them for my grandaughters (no hidden agenda...really).

Thanks for sharing and the opportunity to win stamps.

MaryR said...

I don't even remember my childhood toys?! hmmmm - probably Barbie dolls

Darlene said...

My favourites were my dolls (baby dolls and a Debbie doll) I also loved to play with paper dolls and make paper clothes for them.

Kitty Rodahl said...

I loved my beloved teddy bear--even still have him after 50 years! He looks like he's been through the ringer, but my nearly grown boys get a kick out of him.

KanataNewf said...

I loved my Walking Wendy doll - she was just as big as me!

Bogner's said...

My favorite toy as a child were my brothers... Oh the trouble we could get into! If people don't count, then I would have to say... the metal swords my brother made us to play pirates! Again, SO much trouble!

Sharon said...

I had a little tan stuffed monkey that I loved. It had to be washed after my brother put him in the toilet, but I still loved it!

SueB said...

LOL, "practically perfect in every way" makes me think of Julie Andrews - sweet cards, ladies - TFS!

Today's question? My fav toy as a child was a stuffed puppy (named "Puppy," original, eh?!) w floppy ears that I kept almost forever!

Thanx for the memories!

Wanda said...

I still have my teddy bear...which is REALLY ratty looking by now!

Favorite childhood toy - well, I wasn't much of a doll person, but I did love my Chatty Cathy - was quite sad when my brother's friend sat on her and broke her legs off. She was never quite as Chatty after that... :( Probably spent more time playing with my Spirograph though...

My troll 'Goldie' - sad but true! The little girl that lived next door to me, loved to play with trolls, too. We made troll houses,complete with furniture, out of cardboard boxes, paper & material scraps!

Wonderful stamp beautifully displayed. My favorite toy was my baby doll which I still have. I am 55 and I take it out each Christmas to put under the tree in the sled my dad made for her.

I have always loved anything crafty, so I am going to say Fashion Plates. I spent HOURS coming up with different outfits!
