Just beautiful! Valerie
this is lovely and I like that you didn't use 'traditional' Christmas colours (as made popular by Coca Cola!) of reds and greens. It's hard not to but you've made this a gorgeous festive illustration with pinks and blues instead!
Your art always makes me smile!
Yes, love the bright colors, and her stripey cap. You must have had fun creating this.
She is very pretty and I love your color choices. Happy PPF!
Oh the colors and that beautiful mouth. This makes me very happy today. Happy PPF!
The girl eyes are sades, Why? it`s Chistmas...Saludos
