This week at Spoon Full of Sugar there was this cute sketch. I loved it immediately, and decided I wanted to give it a try. I had a scrapbooking paper that I wanted to work with, together with a Sarah Kay image I received as part of the Blog candy I had won.
This is what came of it! :)
I coloured the image with water-colours, having to mix with some black to create a distressed look on the clothes. I chose to decoupage some leaves and flowers from the same paper onto the image's border, after I doodled some flourishes freehand. Finally I couldn't resist to add some glittery sparkle to her trousers, hat and to the red flower..! This image helps you to visualise more how it looks

I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
