Merry Christmas


It is a wee bit miserable outside at the moment (it is trying to rain!) There seems to be an emphasis on Christmas in July on the challenge blogs ... so I decided to continue on my pile on christmas cards (one can never have too many chrissy cards :)  I used the little girl image from AnnaBelle Stamps 'tomorrows dream' - I enjoy colouring her ... as I was colouring her one thing struck me while colouring her hair ... my question is ... when we colour any hair do we colour it, whether it be intentional or unintentional, as a reflection of our own hair colour?  I mean I always colour hair a brown simply because my hair is dark brown ... mind you if I did do it to reflect my hair colour I should also include a few 'grey' streaks in there LOL :)   Anyway here is my card ...

a close up of the girl (with no grey streaks in her hair :)
