To my daughter... I LOVE YOU

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I've been pretty busy lately; spending time with my lil one, learning french etc. What's the weather like where you live? Do you have any snow? We do, quite a lot of it actually. I wonder all this white stuff was for Christmas when I actually wanted it... It really has a terrible timing. *sigh* But I will admit that nature looks nice all covered with snow. :)

So, the "love month" is here. Do you have any plans for Valentine's day? Do you do anything special on that day with your other half? I will be honest, I don't really do Valentine's day. I like to surprise my hubby with little things on random days through the year, not "just" on Valentine's day. Therefore I don't really do any Valentine's day crafty projects. So when I saw that the theme of this month's challenge at The Sketchy Challenges blog is Love/Valentine's day I started thinking what to do. Lucky for me a very, very special person celebrate's her birthday this month. My sweet little girl who I LOVE with all my heart is turning three later this month. I can't believe how fast these 3 years have gone by.

For this challenge I made a card for my birthday girl.

When I was thinking about what image to use for my card I knew I wanted something sweet. Preferably a little girl with a toy of some sort. And this adorable Sweet friends Marci from La La Land Crafts was perfect. My lil girl also has a panda toy and loves playing with it, so score! :D

Seriously, isn't this image just too cute? I really like it. A lot! I coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos and then carefully fuzzy cut it and raised it on foam pads to get some dimension.

I decorated the card with all of my favourite embellishments - lace, pearls and lots of beautiful flowers from I am roses.

I can't wait to see your Valentine's/Love projects, so do come play with us at The Sketchy Challenges. :)

Hugs! xx
