Missing you...

Hello friend!

How is your Monday going?
It's a beautiful, sunshiny day here on the Oregon coast
today and I've been listening to the "music" of
my grandson's, and their friends,
playing outside all day.  :)

I love summertime!!

I have a new card to share with you today,
that is a bit of a detour from what I usually do, I think.
It doesn't have near the bling or the embellies that my cards
normally have, but I love how it turned out.  I hope you do, too!!

This digital image is one that comes from 
Her expression looks a bit sad to me, thus the sentiment.

*please click on the photos to enlarge*
She's so elegant looking and has a vintage feel to me,
 so I loved her, and couldn't wait to color her!

I used ribbon to form the ruffle for her dress and her hair
is so beautifully coiffed, that I thought adding the flower
to it would finish it off nicely.
