Jenny in the Summer

I thought I would have a go at making my own images for a card.  I wanted to draw a little girl and a little boy with cute faces.  My inspiration comes from photographs of my two children when they where younger, I wanted to capture their beautiful faces and wide eyes.  Here is one of my designs.
