Ain't No Sunshine...

      This image took me quite a while to color but that was because I had to take several rest breaks during the process.  I've had a couple of 'not-so-good' days with low oxygen levels and a bit of dizziness now and then but I did manage to get this card finished.

     The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and I think she's just adorable!  In my part of the world, we're wishing we had rain instead of the drought conditions we've had most of the winter and the short bit of spring so far.

I was inspired by the sketch from The Outlawz
although you can see I twisted it a bit.

     I also decorated the inside:

     I'm keeping this short because I'm ready to rest again.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

So sorry to hear about the oxygen low levels. Be careful. Your card is so cute. Love the inside.

We were fortunate to get a few hours of rain yesterday. Oh did we need it. Our area tends to go from winter straight to summer and skips spring. Or, we get 3 days of spring. [Bunny]

I'm catching up on some cards from a few days ago when I didn't feel like commenting (had to go to the dentist for toothache).
Beautiful card NanaConnie. I can totally relate to that sentiment at the moment. I like the way that you turned the sketch to work better with the image.
