Hello Everyone...

YAY!! it is Friday...but the smile has been wiped off my face as I have just learnt that Cyclone Lusi is on it's way down from the North and we are under Civil Defense watch and may loose power better get my posts scheduled for the weekend...once they are in cyber space they should pop up on time even if I'm down..

Today I'm here to share a card I made using this fun image from Lacy Sunshine

Eleanor Hippie Chick ..

She is coloured up with Pencils and Copics and the tiny flowers around the edge is a very small wooden stamp...had it for years..just stamped and coloured and added liquid pearls..

Ahhh..then went crazy with colours...all Hippies love colours

Orange and purple card stock...wonderful flower buttons dotted about and a MB flower die.

The 'Love' sentiment is the typewriter keys again...quite like this..
and an orange bow to finish off...

Thanks so much for dropping in...I'm off in a moment to stock up on chocolate...err...groceries for the weekend...could be a long one..

Entering these challenges...
