Simply Sassy Spotlight Guest & some challenges

Hi everyone!! Well it was Spring earlier in the week, back to miserable Winter yesterday and we have Spring peeking out again today, lol. Don't ya just love Irish weather?!!

I was so surprised and delighted to be invited as Simply Sassy's Spotlight guest for this week. I just adore these cute images and knew instantly which one i would use for my spotlight card - Hippy Chick!

Don't ya love the big soulful eyes??!! This stamp is such a joy to colour and I spent aaaages on her complexion - I just felt she should look healthy and vibrant, lol. I was quite happy with how it turned out.

My papers are My Mind's Eye "Hattie", a wonderful collection of mustard & teal papers with fabulous designs. The blue tag was in my stash, I'm not 100% sure where I got them. All my papers and the tag have been machine stitched. I embellished using a cream heart doily, Wild Orchid Craft flowers, pearl topped pins and Prima bling.

Challenges - 
Wild Orchid Challenges - Anything Goes
Simon Says Challenges - Anything Goes
Copic Creations - Complimentary Colours
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Anything goes
 Gingerloft - Use flowers

Thanks for flying by! Have a wonderful day
