It's Hanna! And ... Hanna ......... :)


Hey there, Hanna! Sorry for the very blurry images! These lil gals were actually on their way in the mail and already sealed in their envies -- It's Hanna Brunette and Hanna Blonde! I paper-pieced their dresses and headbands and really tried to get the feel for how I thought she looked in my head (I did have this card planned out, but ...... lol) I kept the background around her clean and simple because the card looked busy enough & added a general sentiment since she's drinking coffee but it might not be used as a coffee card :)



I have to say after seeing them finished, while I normally prefer to color everyone brunette, I like her better as a blonde (maybe it's her dress, lol) I struggle with this part of my card making to be perfectly honest and try to shy away from "people" as much as possible ~ I am not confident enough in my card making or have the skills necessary to really pull them off - give me a coffee mug, cute animal or flower any day and I'm so happy! How nice it would be to have a cup of coffee or tea with you all one day! *hugs!*

  2. Why do you shy away from people when you do such great work Kelly?!? These are wonderful and you should be very proud of yourself! I am exactly like you and will 99.9% of the time color my girls as a brunette, but I do like this Hanna as a blonde! It must be the dress! :D ((big hugs))

  3. I usually color my ladies as blond, but that is only because DD is one. I think you did a great job!! I look forward to our having a cup of tea together someday.

  4. I also color almost everyone brunette - but I figured it was because I am one! LOL! My first blonds were for you and Kadie.
    I think these look great! You should definitely not be afraid to do people - this beauty of a card is proof that you do them well!
    Hugs,

  7. Well I think you did a very lovley job on coloring these girls and I think you should do more. I tend to go darker on the hair when coloring peeps to just because I like high contrast, but it is fun to branch out too.

You colored them wonderfully, and you always choose the prettiest papers and embellies. I think you are awesome and should dive into any type of stamp head-on!!!
