It was leaked on last sunday in the Favorites thread that Kathleen would be this weeks tea pot destination and I had started coloring this image in hopes it would fit the theme of the pot that was posted on tuesday and finally finished it last night after work so, luckily there are blooms on it :) I just wanted to do something Pretty because, Kathleen always makes me smile with her kindness. there is a closer look at the coloring with a marker list on the blog. tfl.

I'd say you've caught Kathleen at a younger free spirited point in her life with this beautiful image, Stacy! Gorgeous and stunning! Your coloring is awesome as are the sentiments you are using (I really love the one about being strong)!

I love Jennifer's (Mother's Daughter) comment about capturing a look that might be Kathleen in earlier years. A richly colored image with a power sentiment to go along with it - they each stand on their own merit - I like that!

Wow Stacy this is fantastic. I keep looking at it and seeing something new. I love everything about it and have already saved it to my favs. Kathleen is going to be blown away by all of these amazing cards.
