However, I had other cards that needed to be finished first. Then I saw the challenge for Mo's Digital Challenge this week and I really wanted to join in. However, I didn't have an image that I wanted use from Mo's for this challenge, but I still wanted to use Sadie for this card, so I looked at the shop and of course had to buy a few new images that had little animals, so I could "borrow" one and use it with Sadie. Unfortunately I didn't think far enough ahead before I had recolored Sadie, or I could have just put them on the same card stock together.
My friend is in her 90's and recently was in the hospital. I wanted to let her know now how special she is to me and my husband, and not wait until we can't tell her. There's a Scripture she loves at Proverbs 25:11 that says: "As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it." So I printed this on pink card stock and used one of the MS all-around-the-page punch sets and put it inside the card. (Sorry I forgot to take a picture of it.)

On the first image I colored, I colored the apples red. So this time I decided to color them more of a gold color. I had also used a different color scheme, which I wanted to change. This is also my first attempt to try to color an image with darker skin. My friend is such an elegant woman that I didn't want it to be so casual. I used roses from Recollections, ribbon from Zoe's, button, brads and paper from my stash. I also used one of my new Spellbinder's labels. I am entering this in the following challenges:
