You might remember when I introduced you to her as part of my last 30-Day Challenge of Sidewalk Crackers. This is number 18 in my 30 Day Learning Challenge is a follow-up to yesterday’s. This time I used my own art and figured out how to animate it. Oh my gosh, it’s so much fun to figure it all out. She’s sorta cute, isn’t she?

Mary Cassatt had a birthday (May 22, 1844).
