Jane's Doodles {Love... endures all things.}

I'm popping in to share a Jane's Doodles card that is currently winging its way to my super sweet and talented friend, AJ Otto. This card features Little Miss Mia in different hair colours to show that she's not only cute, she's cool! Plus, I had so much fun playing with her arms!

On the purple and red versions, I stamped an extra arm and adhered it to the picture to make it look as if Mia's animated and enthusiastic about what she's saying which is the verse from Unity's July 2011 Kit of the Month, Better Together. If you click on the link to see the original design of the verse, you'll see that I aligned each line separately on my gridded acrylic block to get it to stamp on the very edges of the squares. 'Believes' ended up too close to 'all things' but I wasn't about to redo the Copic colouring. ;) The 'be brave' background is from the Melody Ross set She Sprouted Wings.

Thanks for stopping by this evening! I'm off to watch Flashpoint but I'll be back soon. Big hugs to you all!

Fantastic card, Em, and I'm sure it's just the type of card that AJ needs right now! And I'm with you on the it's-not-quite-right-but-I'm-sure-as-heck-not-redoing-it-now feeling, but I would not have noticed unless you pointed it out. :)

I LOVE the hair! Too cute, especially with all her crazy arm-waving while she 'talks' :)
I'm just now getting to season 4 of Flashpoint online...my hubby & I joke about Ed all the time, how he stops crime with his 'awesomeness.'
