Not blogged for a while

Sorry I haven't been around blogland for a while, went to stay with my  my youngest daughter and her family for a week, then got bogged down with other  family stuff, but as it's oldest daughter's birthday on Thurs, thought i'd better get organised and make a card. Can't believe Tracy is 40 this year, where has the time gone?

I watched Mel Heaton on Creat and Craft colouring with copics last week, so got my copics out and coloured this image, first time I haven't binned an attempt at colouring long hair!
The image is from Pink Gem
Papers from a first edition pad (summer breeze) and a MCS CD
Flowers from wild orchid and country baskets
Numbers cut with silhouette
Sentiment computer generated
I am entering it in the following challenges
pinkgemchallengeblog.   a sketch   x
divasbydesignchallenge   tickled pink  x
wildorchidchallenge.   anything goes   x

 Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, will be catching up with you all this evening xx

Hi Irene, long time no see buddy xx
good to see you back, I have been doing short shifts I have to admit. Mojo has just totally deserted me, everything is hard work :(
Love the card, the colours and image are beautiful. Frightening these kids of ours getting old isn't it ...yikes!
