You are in my thoughts!

I thought I had better explain the card in my title before you saw it!

This is for a friend of mine, who is in a bad state at the moment, menopause and all that!  She absolutely loves bright and cheerful, so I thought this fun (I think) image and sentiment would hopefully give her a smile at least, she knows my quirky/sick sense of humour and would expect something like this from me. I hope LOL

I used Incontinence Irene from Squigglefly and the sentiment that goes with it. I paper pieced her dress in PS from digi papers by Mommyish at Digichick, lovely bright and cheerful, then used some matching papers from the rest of the bundle for the rest.  I coloured her in PS and used burn and dodge tools to shade. Added Stickles and a lovely ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons.

The sketch I followed is LOTV 26th June,  I presume from last year.

I shall be entering the following challenges
