[listening to disney love songs]

happy lovey-dovey day everyone! finished this up in time to make my Valentine's Day card for my Sun and Stars - my hubby theFranchize! i know it seems a little girly, but i really liked Vanellope's design. reminds me of a spunky mini-me. =) her name is so close to mine, she seems to be made of mint chocolate (my favorite combo besides mac and cheese), and she's a racer (if u ask anyone, they'll tell u i drive a lil too fast). see, perfect! =)
tried something new with this one - the line art is all digital instead of scanned from my sketch. and i used the Lino Crayon (or was it just Crayon?) brush in photoshop just to see. then i colored it a little more loosely than usual.  and only after i started doing shadows and highlights did i notice her hair ties were Twizzlers. i thought they were just ribbons, hence the squared-off edges. ah well.

anyways, i'll leave it up to the hubby if he wants to share the finished card with the world. but as far as i'm concerned, it's just for him. everyone feels some kind of way about this day. for me, i think u should take an opportunity every single day to let the one u love know they're ur everything. but i take today to double-down on it. hold them a little tighter, kiss a little longer, cuz tomorrow's not promised.

i hope everyone is as lucky as me to find and marry someone that makes them feel like they're the most important person in the world. i get to spend the rest of my life with my high school sweetheart. it doesn't get any better than this. what we've got, it's movie love.
