A little love

So do you ever just have one of those days, or weeks, or even months where nothing is going right and you just wonder how much more you can handle? Well I made this for just such a time. I know that I have a lot to handle right now but some of my friends have even more going on. I know that if I were to receive a nice little note in the mail it would make my whole day and so I want to make someones day.
I decided I wanted to use the cute little girl from Inspired Stamps - His Little Ones: Patriotic girl with heart only I didn't need her to be patriotic only loving. awww...I {heart} Inspired Stamps. So I gave her a little chipboard heart and covered it with paper. As I was doing this I was trying to decide what else this adorable little one could hold! I wanted to do a sentiment on the front and was trying to decide what I wanted to do with it and decided to do a double banner er or a banner of sorts. I {heart} banners and I am super glad they are all the rage right now because you can just never seem to go wrong with one. So here is my "loved" banner. ;) nice little word play there. I used the "You are Loved" sentiment from More Perfect Sentiments 

You can see some of the layers here at this angle. I decided to color with my Copics I {heart} Copics. I cut her out for added oomph and popped her up to give a little added dimension. Adding the three little red pearls added just a little something extra.
Question: What do you think of her hair? I am pretty confident with my coloring skills as I have established many times I love love love to color with all mediums. What I have noticed though with my Copics is I am not so confident with hair and I need to practice practice practice.

Well I hope you enjoyed my little pick me little love. Also we learned a lot about me in this post ;)
