It has been good to get back into my cards. Last week my mother in law passed away and we were busy with funeral stuff and relatives.
A perfect way to start with the t-pot ladies...yah...:0)
I see that Jeans fav. color is yellow and so started with that idea and then saw the color challenges were near that too so combined them both. I did have her hair as a blond as well but the colo9ring....well lets just say she makes a better brunette....lol.
I water colored this sweety and sponged the edges in the blue and light purple, added the black edge to show her better and then I pressed my big inkpad onto the embossing folder and embossed the white and made the yellow stripes that way. Was going to add a bow but for mailing purposes I added a flatter flower. sponged the 2 leaves a bit in brown too to make it a fall tones as well.
On the inside I am going to put the verse " PSALM 365....Your love o Lord reaches to the heavens and your faithfulness to the skies. kind of fits in with the hugs and lovin...thanks for visiting...:0)

Nicely done! She is darling. So sorry for your loss and I hope all is going okay.
