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

Oh TEENAGERS! What can I say LOL

Happy Sunday to everyone :o) I imagine a lot of you will be busy watching, or entertaining guests for the Super Bowl in USA today!!

Thanks for taking a minute to have a look at my new card.
This wonderful image is from Mo Manning. If you haven't seen Mo's images as yet, you must take a look at her store. Her drawing is amazing and you will fall in love with many of her digital images.

This card I made for my 13 year old nephew. Apparently he has recently died his lovely blond hair something called: Blackberry Black!!! Sooooo I have made the hair that very colour. I don't think it comes through with the camera, but believe me in person that is exactly the colour! LOL LOL Sure hope he likes the card. If he keeps it - should remind him in later years what he did when he was 13 * grin *

As always I have decorated the inside of the card as well as the outside, but today am just showing the outside as I took several pictures trying to get 'that hair'.

It was a blast to colour this one. As usual I used my Copics.
I also used SU card stock both Whisper White and Basic Black. I made the polka dot paper from the computer. The ribbon, birthday tag and phone charm are all from my stash:

Here is the entire card:

Here is a closer look:

Here is a little look at the embellishments:

Thanks a lot for visiting and enjoy the big game :o)
