Finally a new card!

Hi Everyone!
Sorry I have been away from my card making for so long. Sometimes life just gets in the way.
I have a short post today and then - I am off to the mainland to visit my mom and baby-sit our Grandchildren - so once again you won't see me for about 3 weeks :o( I will sure miss my cards......
Anyway - this is one I made for my girlfriend Heather, who I have known since I was 12 and am still in touch with 48 years later!!! So nice to have someone in your life who knows you so well and all you have gone through in your life!!! THANKS HEATHER :o)
The image is from Sugar Nellie and is one of my favourites!

Here she is a little closer:

A very plain card this time but I really wanted to showcase the colouring of this one and little else.
Oh nuts - I don't think you can see the little Stickles I added to the middle of the flowers so here is another picture:

The Stickles and pearls were all that I added and I coloured with Copics as usual.
Sorry no pictures of the inside, as I wrote on it before I remembered to take them :o(
I will miss you all and be anxious to come home again and get on with my cards.
Take good care of yourselves. See you .........
Love Candy

This is a beautiful card Candy, and your coloring is absolutely gorgeous! Your talent never fails to amaze me.

I will miss you while you are gone, but I hope that your trip goes well and you enjoy your time with Brandon and Mariah. Take care.

Love,
Barbara

Candy dear, I know how life gets in the way of our card making. This card is adorable. beautifully colored too! I bought this image because it reminded me of my daughter when she was little. but I haven't made a card with it yet! I do everything at a slow pace! Enjoy your trip and have fun with those grandbabies.
Hugs,
