Love Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Misty Moon with CTMH Something Magical Workshop Your Way

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is having time to craft and having fun doing it.  I am the happiest when I can create something for someone I love.  I wish I was able to craft day and night; but for some reason, I have to sleep, do laundry, cook, clean house, etc.  LOL!

I have been buying Ching-Chou Kuik gray-scale digis for a couple months now; and hadn't tried coloring one of them yet.  I decided the newest one was so perfect that I had to try it.  I was pleasantly surprised that it was easier than regular coloring.  It was easier for me than when I color a normal image without the gray-scale look.  I am not sure why; unless it shows more shadows; therefore allowing you to make more mistakes.  LOL!  Has anyone else colored CCK gray-scale images and found them to be easier to color?  

I made this card for my daughter; because it made me think about her.  Jenny is a hair dresser and colors a lot of hair.  I have always been impressed over her coloring her own hair over the years; even when she was a teenager and it wasn't approved by her mother.  LOL!  The only way I will ever color hair is with digis.  LOL!  

I made this card thinking of how much I love my daughter; and how proud I am of her.  She has had a difficult adult life; but she perseveres through every challenge.  It may be with lots of upset; but she is an amazing woman, mother, daughter and fabulous friend.  I know she will feel my love for her when she receives it.  

I felt like this image was both magical and mystical; and the sentiment needed to use the word magical in it.  LOL!    This gorgeous image is on sale right now through Feb. 17th; so get yours now.  You receive two of these images.  I used the lighter one for this creation.
