For a Special Friend

This card is for a very special friend of mine - Marion. Her birthday is on Friday and the family are having a BBQ for her on Sat so I will see her then but the card is already winging its way to her letterbox! Using a Mo Manning freebie and papers that were free with a recent magazine I think this is a beautiful card - even if I say so myself! Only going into one challenge - Pollycraft Birthdays!
It was coloured in using my faithful friends - my PMs! I love how the wings have turned out as I put green and ivory on them and they look a bit wistful (if wings can be wistful!?).
I have had a fab day out at a photo shoot with Lynne - got some fab pics but will need to upload them them tomorrow and then you will see the real me - no airbrushed images I promise - OMG its amazing what they can do with a decent Photo Software - quite frightening actually!
I am off to do a bit of commenting and being nosey generally to see what you all been up to today!
Bye for now girlies,


  1. OMG Sheila, I absolutly love this image. What is is about you and picking the best images ever...
    Your sketch and colouring is perfect too.
