Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Something New!!

It's Thursday and that means a new Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge and the theme, brought to you by the super talented Iulia, is:  Something New.  I chose the gorgemous,  My Chubby Valentine

The "New" event is my retirement, which became official yesterday, as I got my first Social Security check in my account, that is about as official as it gets LOL,  I colored this gorgemous Chubby beauty, some of my favorite images, as a self portrait (minus the boobs which I don't have LOL )

The white background cs was embossed with a cuttlebug folder with lots of congratulations sentiments which I thought was appropriate, but most were covered by the main image.  My new favorite cuttlebug flower and leaves were mounted in the lower left corner and a button threaded with brown and white bakers twine was added to the upper right.  Other than that Miss Retirement says it all !!!

Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog and check out what the  rest of the DT has chosen to create for the "new " theme and be sure to grab one of the new awesome images Mo has created and  Join the Challenge fun for a chance to win one of the numerous prizes given weekly.  One prize is given for every 25 entries.  That is pretty awesome.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!
