Thanks XOXO

I had to colour up this stamp again, I think she is so cute. And as I was colouring her I was thinking I could send this to a friend who would interpret it the same as me. When saying Thanks in Auslan (Australian Sign Language) we take the open hand and place  the fingertips onto the chin then tap away. We don't pucker up to blow a kiss but it looks so close to what we are seeing here.

Thats why I added the sentiment 'Thanks'.

I have coloured her with copics and tried to be a little bit lighter handed with my colours.  Finished her off with her own beautiful glow flowing off her in pale pale green.

I have kept it nice and simple and just added the gold die cut 'Thanks' and 'XOXO' and a 1" strip of purple cardstock down each side on the card.

Ooh I love that green colour on her dress. Its just such a yum green.

I would like to enter this in:

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

The image is a real little sweetie blowing her kiss Aileen and really shines from the clean crisp design of your card.

Beautifully done - the folds are amazing! I love her. In British Sign Language you would do similar for thank you - tap the chin with your open hand and then take it away. Xx
