Heather! That is so funny. I did the same thing for the theme (only mine is still in sketch phase). I love the colors and details on the sweater. As always, expressive and joyful. *Hugs* and hope you are well.

Heather, I love this illustration. You have a knack of drawing things that bring back so many memories for me. As kids we would rake the leaves and then build forts and houses in the piles (until dad made us bag them up).

Oh leaves are so much fun when you are a kid....for an adult, they are only fun on the trees. (spoken by one who spent the weekend raking/leaf blowing?

Lovely illustration, I just love the color.
