Hi There!
Have you ever started coloring an image and realize it has truly become a labor of love?  Well, this happened to me with this adorable image by Krista Smith - "secrets".  Now what sisters do  not have secrets?!  We had plenty - some good - some not so good.  But they were our secrets to keep and share.  Nothing like a bond between two sisters and I am especially blessed to have such a close relationship with my sister - so this card is for you Sis!  Hope to get it mailed tomorrow!

I had this image for a long time and just got around to coloring it on Saturday but it took two hours to color!   It doesn't help when you are a bit of a perfectionist too with your colors;)  I never thought that much labor of love would be needed but it was worth every minute as I am pleased with all the colors and I think my Sissy will like it.  I kept the design relatively simple so as to show off this great digi image by Krista.  And then later after loading it up - I did add some liquid pearls here and there but just never got around to reloading the picture.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week - I have today off so my week has already started off with a bang!!! Yes!  Big Hugs,  CaroleAnn

I would like to enter this card for the following challenge:

Saturated Canary Challenge #37 - LOVE 

Card Recipe
Image from Krista Smith colored with both copic and promarkers.  Image I have outlined with my copic liner.  Papers used from K&C/Adrianna and the sister stickers are from my stash that I was waiting to use for the right moment, the corner filigree is from WOC and the two cyrstal hearts are from a stash I received from my sister!  Lace is from Joanne's fabric store.

Inside view - I had to put a "sissy" sticker in there ;)
