It's time for a doll!

Not worked on a doll for a while so it was time!!I'm not exactly sure what to call this one.......she started out going to be some sort of snowman-doll but ended up as something else!!! When I look at her all I can think is "wood-witch" so that is what she is I think!!
 Here she is sitting in her nest of paper scraps.

 Normally when I work on a doll I take the hair off and usually push out the eyes but a while ago a friend Hermine Koster altered a doll and left the hair on. She worked some paint through the hair and I thought it looked I left the hair on this time! I used gesso to try and give a frosty feel, there is also some glitter in there (not showing up much in the pics) and a few stars.

 Why an orange nose? Well this started out as a sort of snowman doll and snowmen have carrots for noses, they also have coals for eyes, buttons on their tummys and twigs for arms!

Thanks for all the thoughts on whether to add words to my cards or you can see I have decided to go ahead and add words. I am glad I did as I like the way they look now.

 Added a crown to the bird too:)

I can't remember

the last time I made a card!! But I made some today.........I saw a very similar idea to this over the weekend and thought they would make very quick cards...........and they did, these were super quick and easy!

 I can't decide if these need some words of some sort......maybe just one big-ish one? Can't decide.......opinions welcomed:)
 And maybe the bird needs a hat?
