For a Sweetheart!

Hey gang! Yay, it's finallyFriday and January is almost over!! People who know me well know that I hate January! It's cold, it snows, flu germs, kids coughing, it's cold, it snows...LOL So I'm excited for February!! My son is a Valentine's baby and I love to decorate the house in pinks and reds. Of course, he hates it now, but as a toddler he "woved it"! So, I loved making this cutie with one of my favorite Prairie Fairy characters-Gillian! My daughter asked me when I was coloring this image-"why do you color her glasses turquoise blue all the time?" I guess I think of Gilly as my alter-ego. I got my first pair of glasses when I was 10, and guess what color they were? Yup, the same color-Then, when I was around 12-13, I got the Sally Jessy Raphael glasses in a similar color!! Big helmet hair, braces and blue rimmed glasses- Very CHIC-thank God the 80's are over!! The challenge this fortnight at Fairy Fun Fridays is to make a card for a sweetheart! I don't know to whom I will give this yet!! No sweethearts here! Maybe my daughter-depends on who behaves well from now until then!! I'm entering the following challenges: Charisma Cardz(Valentines, Love), Delightful Challenges , Meljen Designs(Include/Make something with a Heart) and A Spoonful of Sugar (Valentines). Hope u like! xox T.
