Kiss Another One Goodbye

Hi everyone! Wasn't the blog hop yesterday fun? I think everyone did such wonderful works of art! I'll be drawing for my blog candy later on this afternoon and will post the winner then.

Before my sister went in the hospital for her hip surgery she asked me to make a birthday card for someone. I wanted to use one of the images she has drawn for squigglefly so I picked Blown Kisses

(click to enlarge)

I think this is just a great image to use for women who are approaching a mile stone birthday! I colored her with copic markers and chalked the background. I used a silver pen on her necklace. The words are computer generated and the font is Monotype Corsiva (get it free here)
Here are the copic colors I used

I found out yesterday afternoon I didn't have to come in to work today, so I have the whole day to play! Well, I'll probably clean house a little since we're having people over tomorrow for the 4th!
Don't forget that tomorrow is the big SNR Card Universe Oh Say Can You See blog hop! It's going to be awesome seeing that many blogs paying tribute to our country.
I'll be back soon with the blog candy winner. Thanks for looking!

I LOVE your card...I wish my mind worked like yours when it came to putting just the right sentiment with the image. Your coloring on it is FABULOUS as always! AWESOME JOB!
