This is absolutely beautiful sassy! I love the image and all of the lovely embellies. To answer your question, your entry to the Kenny K challenge must have one of his images to be eligible for the prize. So sorry but you have plenty of time to color up one of those images you bought today! I have faith in you! Thanks for hopping with us. I hope you'll be back with another card before the draw because I love your coloring on this one.

Hugs, Annie

Surprising what you can do in a hurry if you have to Sassy. Me? I don't like pressure though, get in a bit of a twist! Love your card! Judy x

Donna said...

Sassy Girl! You sound so wonderful these past days - you are contagious!

As always, your card is just gorgeous! Your friends will just love the time you have put into these cards - as there is another coming!

40's were my best years, too, as I married my honey, too! Although we are the same age. 18+ years married, 20+ years together! 40's and 50's have been the best years of my life. Just had my 60th and I know this decade will be grand as well! After all, we get better with age!

Hugs dear Sassy!
