You Never Let Go

This image is so special to me. I entered a contest that Krista Smith had where you suggested an idea for an image and if she picked your idea  you got the image free. I won with this idea. As a kid my mom took my brothers and myself to the orchards in our valley and I learned to pick fruit to make money for my school clothes and supplies. It was hard work but if is also one of my fondest memories. Now, most of the orchards have been removed to make room for housing developments. What orchards remain the fruit is picked by contracted crews. I miss the 'good ole days'. Today was my mom's birthday. She has been gone eleven years and I still miss her and wish we could have had more time together.I think of her each time I color this image.  Anyway....on to my card. I used both twin markers and Copics to color my image. I added liquid glass to her eyes and to the apples. The paper is  a hodge podge from the scrap box. A fun card that will go to a friend for their birthday. I hope your week is starting off with happy thoughts. Blessings!
My Song:  You Never Let Go!
Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

So cute and I like how the branches in the corner play off of the branches on the image, cute!
