The is such a wonderful gift to make for someone special ~ just make sure you don't choose an image that makes you obsess over shadows and light. This project would have come together quicker if it wasn't for that. ;)
The image is one I adore and have had for a long time called Willow with Lantern from Whiff of Joy. I have colored her so many times and I have to admit this is the first time I have felt completely happy with my coloring. :) Here is a link to the tutorial from Simply Sassy to make this fab gift.
Happy wishes for you! Hopefully you can get some crafting time in. :)
