I'm 'overall' happy!

Good Monday morning to you all!

Hope you had a lovely weekend? The weather here was stormy, stuffy, rainy & sunshiny  (here is Essex) - not all at the same time but throughout the weekend it was one or t'other! hideous at night time, so humid & hard to sleep.  I'm not a lover of the heat (unless it's winter ;-) ...

Anyho...on to my card...this little easel card was made for my little Niece's 3rd birthday...she is a cutie with gorgeous auburn hair & cheeky face, and she's a little bit tom boyish! I thought this image was cute & just perfect to use on her card - it's another one from Meljen's Designs, it's called A girl & her overalls - I can't help but LOVE Melissa's images she draws...I tried to catch the auburn colour in her hair & if I do say so myself, I think I did a good job!
