Soaring Love

Hello Everyone,

Today I have just a teeny story....a love story....awww.

A girlfriend of mine from waaaaay back, found herself alone, and not like me could not stand it.
So she went man searching as she put it...and after 5 years of finding nothing out there,as the good ones were taken, the other were happy....she finally found someone when she was not looking. They dated for quite awhile, and out of the blue one night he said to her..."I'm so happy, I could fly like a Pegasus"

Well, us girls talk...dont we.....and we did giggle about it [so dramatic] but she fancied him so much.

So the big ask was to make her a card to give to him, so I did, but she chose the sentiment..which was then computer made.

There he I fiddled with the lighting etc, so I could show off the hair lines in his mane, tail,and his wings. I'm quite chuffed with my colouring on this one...although it looks better IRL.
Coloured with pencils, and the gorgeous papers are MIM glitter, little clouds and birds, and very sparkly.

Even found a challenge at The Paper Shelter  'for the birds' I have birds, they are just

There you go that's it, may be back later.....Oooo...we just had an I'm all
Better get ready to jump under the desk...

Thanks to everyone for your wonderful comments of late, I'm trying to get to everyone, just been a tad busy, and welcome to 2 new followers,thank you for coming by, I really appreciate it.

Catch you later..

Wow you should be pleased with yourself, it is colored beautifully! The DP is gorgeous I know just what it looks like IRL and the photo's definitely do not do it justice.
So happy for your friend, as someone who has been in the same position I know how wonderful it is to find the 'right' one.

Fab card Chrissy... I love the image and they are extra special when made for someone special.
Mind yourself with the earthquake... we don't have them here and I am so glad of that.
Tell me, who makes that image? I've read your post a couple times and don't see it anywhere but I'd like to check out the designer.
