My Oldie for Saturday

Hello All
I hope you weren't troubled by storm Doris too much. We were exceptionally lucky. As I was on my own it did feel pretty scary listening to the wind howling away and I could hear a few recycling bins crashing down the street. We didn't suffer any injuries or damage though
My cold/infection is still making me feel washed out but I think I have turned a corner and am on the mend
I have chosen to show this card today as I have used this image a lot for both friends my age and my daughter's friends. I always try and make a different version for each card I make (which can prove difficult at times) but this was one of my favourite layouts. The image comes from a free Serif digikit. So I can change the size of it to suit the particular layout
I think I may need to root the image out again and "play" with it - maybe remove the beret and just have the eyelashes and lips - change the colour of the lips and make it more gothic like - decoupage it -  change the colour of the beret - cut out eyelashes and add.... What do you think
I hope you have a great week end. I am hoping to be well enough to go to a Salsa venue on Sunday afternoon, where we chat more than dance and have a catch-up. It's not always easy to talk at night time venues because the music is played at a much louder volume!
Card blank made with Sue Wilson Noble Pierced Squares
Turquoise/green card created with Serif to match colour of beret
