Special Package

Front
My wonderful friend Marlene has another new image and sentiment being released today at Squigglefly. Even though I am not part of the Barbie generation, I found myself coloring "Special Package" like Ken.

My generation played with Ginny Dolls, an eight inch doll named after the daughter of Vogue Doll Company's founder, Jennie Graves of Somerville, Massachusetts. There was no counterpart for Ginny such as Ken or GI-Joe because way back when, boys were busy playing cowboys and indians.

So how did Ken get into the image you ask? Simple, I have three daughters that doted on Ken.

In case you are wondering, I still have my Ginny doll, her wardrobe and her bunk bed, stored in my attic waiting for my children to toss when they put me in the old folks home.  Gee, I hope they look for the MONEY before they start tossing!

  3. fun card Tammy. I like how yo've hidden the "specialness" I have never heard of the Ginny dolls. I was most certainly into Barbie and all of her friends!

  14. This is sooo funny. I love how you covered him up so he can be opened up!!! SUPER CREATIVE!!!
    I never had a Ginny doll... I had a barbie doll (although quite frankly, I didn't really like playing with them).

    Back to the card... I like the 'surprise' element. good idea.
