No Internet!!!

Hi, there.....and let me say, first of all, that I have REALLY missed my blog for the past couple of days!
I've had no internet connection on my little notebook, which is what I use almost all the time for blogging, catching up with emails, etc., so I've been forced to use our old PC....which drives me CRAZY because it is so sloooooooww!  But, needs must, as they say, lol.

I've been dying to share this next card with you, simply because I'm really not sure about took me out of my comfort zone, and is what I think of as VERY LOUD!
I made it with a particular lady in mind.....not that she's very loud, but she certainly has ATTITUDE, and that's what I like about her :)

The image is another freebie from Paulette, and I coloured LOUDLY with Promarkers, then added lots of Beadazzles to the handbag, stick and shoes.  I added three flowers....and then the one with the red gem in it is metal with added white Beadazzles.  Hope she likes it!

I'm entering this card into these challenges:
Heavy Metal (my little flower)
Challenge#3 Anything Goes
Mini challenge - Anything Goes
Anything Goes

My next card is for my next-door neighbour.  She's 81 and very spritely, but recently fell. breaking her leg.....poor thing.  I did the same thing, last summer, and I'm a LOT younger than her....honestly :D

The background paper was a freebie with this months Simply Cards & Papercrafts....the rose image was another digi freebie (not sure where from)......and I used Promarkers to colour, Nellie Snellen's to diecut the image and it's background, and my smallest Nestie scallop for the Get Well message (which was stamped).
I love that tiny Nestie....just the right size for little embellies or messages! Added a few flat-backed pearls, and was done.....ta-daaa!
Sweet Pastel Colours
