Simply Sassy - Hippie Chick

Evening All!!! Hope you've all had a great weekend! Don't they just go by too fast sadly? WOWZER, dunno what's up with Mr Blogger this evening or maybe it's just my computer but it has taken me hours to upload my pics so I'll just get on with it hehe!! I took some time out and had a little play just for me, for a change - no dt work lol! There has been so much inspiration coming from the Simply Sassy blog that I wanted to grab my Hippie Chick and colour her in. I decided to use a combination of dps, namely Magnolia and SWALK as well as co-ordinations cardstock and a doily from my stash. I've inked all around the edges of the doily and the mat of my image with Spun sugar di's by Tim Holtz.

My image has been coloured in with Copics as always. The flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid Crafts and Hobbycraft and the lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts too. The swirl is a doohickey die and the pearls from my stash. I also added teeny tiny little pearls that I got from my darling friend Paola in the centre of the flowers in her hair. Pretty sure that covers everything that I've included on my card. I would like to enter my card into the Simply Sassy GDT call so please hold thumbs for me that I've done ok.

Thanks for stopping by folks and heres wishing you a great week ahead. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
