A Beautiful Maiko!

Hello to you All, and  hoping you are well, but here is a BIG HUG, just in case you're not.
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my last card, I do appreciated you popping in and having a look, I hope you all continue to like what I do and keep coming back.

Weather was better today, sunny and quite warm, it's not before time though is it.  Alistair was up in the Cairngorms today where there was quite a bit of snow, he's come back really burned with the sun, silly boy had no sunscreen with him. I always though he kept it in his pack.  I've been on at him for years to protect himself from the sun, but he doesn't listen, thinks that if the sun isn't out he won't get burnt.

I've spent the last couple of weeks colouring in my card share today, it was a bit daunting;
This beautiful image is from Aurora Wings and I believe that she is a Maiko which is an apprentice Geisha. Coloured with SN pens, cut out with a Tonic die, Papermaina Paper from the Oriental pad, Black and yellow/gold card, finishing of with Glamour Dust in Crystal.
I didn't want to add any embellishments as the image I felt didn't need it. I'll add a sentiment when needed.  I'm quite pleased with my colouring and like the colours I've chosen, gosh listen to me....self praise is no praise at all it is said.

Just going to put my feet up tonight and chill with my knitting, enjoy your own evening and I'll see you soon'
