Whimsy & Stars Studio–Amelie

 

I am still having issues with my computer so I’m going to keep this short.   I have a new laptop on order .  I have my fingers crossed that it will be delivered and I will be able to get everything moved over before this one totally fails.

This week I made a card using Amelie.  Isn’t she sweet?   I chose her because I wanted more practice coloring pleats.

Have a great day!
