I am back

Hello, dear friends!
After almost two years of not making cards and not beeing around, I am back!!!
I never thought that when I say bye at the end of March 2014, it will take this long to be able to make cards again, to blog about them and visiting you (I will also start visiting)... I don't want to give details but life is more complicated that what we can think of.
So............ I would like to show you a card I made to start. As you can imagine I runned out of birthday cards so, to be prepared for many ocassions, this is mu first birthday card of this new season.

The image is a From the Heart Stamps and I colored it with markers!!!! Yes, I bought a few markers (Kureteke) to have a new start and feel motivated. I am not still good at coloring with them, I need to learn a lot and also to buy more shades of every color, but I am happy to show you what I did.

I used some striped and dotty papers from my stash and some dark red cardstock ( it is not as dark it looks, I don't know why it looks so dark in the pics).

The only added thing is some white glitter on the cupcake.

I hope you like it! :)
