One of a Kind


A card for a special lady who doesn't act her age and is very stylish so this image was just perfect for her.  So enjoyed making this card, loved the colours and really enjoyed colouring her up. Now thats what I call progress in my colouring course! I actually said I enjoyed colouring her up lol. I always left the image to last, colouring for me was a scary moment. Loads of practise still to be done, bad hair days still but its a journey Im not going to end till I get there! Im so grateful to The Sugar Nellie Blog for making this happen and to Alyce of Kit & Clowder and the lovely Facebook followers for all their encouragement and lovely comments.

Was having a bad hair day when I made this card. You learn to colour many different styles and it wasn't going well so put it aside and coloured up this cutie instead. So wanted to keep this for myself lol but she's gone to a good home.
