For My Valentine

Hi all. Now, I am aiming to keep this one short and sweet as I have sooo much to do and no time to do it in!

The adorable image is from Phindy's Place, called 'My Love Grows' and has been coloured with Promarkers, even over her paper-pieced apron, to add the shadows and definition. Now, I thought it rather funny when my son came in just as I was finishing it off and asked who it was for.....LOL....I wasn't aware of a line up of admirers as possible recipients, so I will just have to give it to my husband! LOL.

Hey, really did manage to keep this one short!  First time for everything. LOL.
