Freshly Made Sketches: Birthday Balloons

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Linda.

I have a couple of birthdays coming up.  One is my niece who will be 14.  Different 14-year olds can be so different - some act so grown-up (and often defiant and obnoxious!) and some are still so young and sweet.  That's my niece - charming and sweet.  She's a little too old for cutesy so I stuck with colorful balloons.  She also loves to draw and I thought the dimension in these balloons would catch her attention.

Her little sister's birthday is just 2 weeks later.  She'll be 11 - I think I can still go cutesy for her - so watch for it!!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week!
