Hello and thanks for calling this evening
 What another lovely day we've had, even being at work isn't so bad!!

Isn't it lovely to get natural light so late this time of year, makes colouring so much easier, especially with light shades, the like of which I have used on my card. It's one of those cards that I made because I liked the image and what better reason could there be?! Added to which the creative juices are flowing at the moment so why not add to the stock box!!

The image is from the Doodle Garden and was great to colour. I used a tutorial by my  team mate, Annette, for the circle stepper card base (note to self.... follow instructions properly then your steps will be on the correct side!!). The lemon card was from a very old  HOTP pad that went with an 8x8 Paper Pizzaz pad called Retro from where I cut the smiley and peace sentiment. I created the sky and grass using distress inks and a few little flowers too.

I am entering into these challenges

Top Tip Tuesday # 105 - Circles or Hexagons
 (TIP...Use a stubby old paint brush for masking clouds instead of cut 'n' dry foam.  You can be far more precise and it gives a softer finish. Also good for grass!!)

It's a lovely shape and there is no right or wrong side honey. I'm so proud that you followed my tutorial. Fab tip too. I love clouds on my images, I really think that it makes the scene rather than just a lone image. Fab card.
