A Sassy Hello! And A Simple Cloud Tutorial...

Good Morning all!!How goes it?

Did you see I'd posted a tutorial over on the Simply Sassy blog this morning?

Its on how I create a chalked cloud backgound... 
Now I have to say there are MUCH better ones out there, but I wanted to show an EASY version...

Heres a card I've made using the Chalked clouds... 


The GORGEOUS Simply Sassy stamp is Hippie Chick 
I've coloured her with my usual promarkers and pencils...
The papers are all sorts... MME, Bo Bunny, Echo park, Prima...
I've tried to make it look like she is holding a flower... this was a bit fiddly, I had to pierce holes through the image... think I might have pulled it off though...

I've created some 'grass' for her to sit on with my promarkers... and then doodled 3 flower stems...
I punched some butterflies... and added some doodling and enamel accents....


And that's about it!....

 I followed the sketch over at - Crafting Lifes Pieces

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Just Saying Hi
The Stamp Man - Anything goes (summer colours)
My Mum's Craft Shop - Summer
Flutterby - punches/diecuts

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments and emails you've been sending me!!  
I do kind of feel like I've found my mojo at long last!! remember when I was only posting on here once a week!?!?

I'll be back Saturday with my Sketch Saturday card!!
