oh this is so cute. Happy Birthday to you and your daughter. Is she a redhead. My mother is (was) a redhead. She is more blond now with her mix of white. I love red hair.

This is a fun sketch! It's wonderful that your daughter wanted you to capture her on paper!

Thanks for visiting my blog today; to answer your question--a widow maker is a dead tree that could possibly fall on a man and make his wife a widow!

I'm following your blog, looking forward to it!
