Deck of Me- Week 12: "I Believe..."

My painting this week...Emily's Week 12 Challenge: I believe... that God made sisters so we could have a friend for life. :o) My little sister is my very bestest buddy in the whole world and always has been. We loved playing pretend all day and building forts and climbing trees. This is a painting of us climbing that special tree at Demeyer Park. (Although, in reality she probably would have been the one in the overalls and I would have had the poofy dress, little panties, and bow in my hair- but I thought it would be too cute to have some painties showing as she was climbing- sorry Kris).
Here's a picture of me holding my little sister when she came home from the hospital. My mom told me she was my baby and I believed her.


Our ages in this picture were what I designed my painting around for this week. I loved this time when Kristie got a perm so she could have hair like my mom. Look at those curls and cute cheeks!

I threw this one in for fun of us dressed up for our dance recital. Rrraaaarrr. Kris is showing a little bit of leg there. :)
Love you KrisserBugs and Happy 25th Birthday last month!

My sister sent this link to me and I intend to put it in my faves. I've just found my little sister again after some years and she is now one of the hugest parts of my life. Your painting is totally amazing and has inspired me to have a go at painting some atcs myself. Thank you so much for sharing this. I love it.

Beauty, beauty! I like your line work, how it's not all solid and one thickness. I like your hair, and how you indicated the highlights on top. I like the patterns in the leaves, and your pretty face. I could see you wearing both of these outfits, you tom-boy-girlie-girl!

Too cute. I really liked this drawing and I really liked your pictures. They are cute. Makes me even more glad to have two little girls so they can grow up and be best friends (hopefully right?). It is the best having a sister. I have to agree.

LOVE this card! And all those special pictures of you and your sister...that is so precious and very, very cool! My little sister was just here visiting and she actually did the card challenge with me, which was a very neat thing in itself to get spend time doing something creative together.
