A fun Uptown Girl... Lucille

Hello stamping friends.  I hope your Friday has started out wonderfully.  I'm off work for a couple of days, so mine day is going great!!

A while back I made a card for my granddaughter so she'd know I was thinking of her and loving her.  The perfect image to convey those sentiments was from Stamping Bella and is called Lucille sending her love.  She's one of the fab Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella.  They are really, really fun to color up.  Here's my attempt...

She really loved it. Not surprising as she's my biggest fan.  It's very sweet!  I hope you enjoy it too.  As usual, my pinks aren't as pretty as in 'real life'.  I've been told it's probably my lighting.  I do hope to take care of that some time soon.
