Keshet

I have a young fan called Keshet. I recently did some pieces for her mum and Keshet was apparently fascinated by what I do and went to bed with a million questions about my work and how I know how to make such lovely things. She asked if I could make a card for her birthday at the end of June. She wanted a card with lots of rainbows, doughnuts and treats on it. How could I resist a request like that?
Mum sent me some recent pictures of her soon-to-be 8 year old. One showed her with her favourite emoji face headband, and the other was of a much-loved rainbow T-shirt (the name Keshet means "rainbow" in Hebrew). Mum also added that Keshet is currently planning a lilac bedroom, so could I include some lilac on the card too?
I have shown Keshet wearing her much loved headband and with a doughnut in each hand. She loves the ones with chocolate icing and hundreds and thousands (sprinkles) on them, and also those with chocolate chips. She's 8 years old. She adores treats - marshmallows, sweets and sour strips - all the things that parents don't like to give their kids! I cut out some tiny pink and white marshmallows and jelly beans, some more doughnuts with hundreds and thousands on them and added another rainbow too. A big number 8 marks her age.
Mum sent me these fabulous photos of the birthday girl on her big day and was happy for me to share them here. "If a picture says it all... she loved the card!" mum wrote.

This one is really sweet. I had a lilac room when I was young and loved donuts. Love her headband!

Ow, you're the first this week with such a cute girl -she reminds me on Pipi Langstrumpf! Her face completely lights up seeing your card. You, being a mum - that must have made your day! Thank you much for sharing the joy of a child with All Seasons! Have a great week, Lisa!
