Sherri Baldy's New Release- Remember the Chiquita Banana girl?

This image totally reminded me of my mom.  She rarely did anything "crazy" funny, and one day she just stuck a Chiquita Banana Sticker on her head and sang the jingle that was on tv at the time.  I still smile when i think of it..and of course, she doesn't remember!!!

I do remember and this is what i thought of while i colored this image called Carmen scan 0006 that you can purchase here.

Sherri Baldy's New Release - Faith img586- Angel

I really loved this Angel just created by Sherri.  She is just pretty! 

When my granddaughter saw her she though she was Elsa from Frozen..i said no, she has wings!  I guess if someone wanted to color her up and cut off her wings she could be more like Elsa. :)

Sherri Baldy's New Release for April- Messy Marvin img593- Hello!

I was quite busy with Sherri Baldy's new release as you can see so far.  I love all of the new Besties Boys she created.  This is one of the new Besties Boys.

I have colored this image up to look like my grandson, Ayden.
I did a lot of mixed media on this card.  I used some Molding Paste, stain and stickles.
The rainbow in the background was watercolor pencils and then i painted over it with a fine glitter paint!
