Wish You Were Here?!

I'm trying to be really good and use up all the odd sized offcuts of printed papers that I have in my rather large and overflowing shoe box.  The cloud papers (Echo Park Summerday papers) I've had to piece together in the centre (don't look too hard!)  and I've cut down the waves one (Echo Park Splash papers) and printed on the reverse too and used that.

I've added two extra clouds that I cut from the remnants as I wouldn't be able to use them again as they were too small.

The image is From The Heart digi stamps and is called Tropical Chick - its been coloured with Promarkers and then cut out and I've added it to the card with some free thin foam pads that I got in a magazine.

And that's about it!  Wouldn't mind being that chick right now - I could do with a bit of me time and a break!!

Word Play Saturday:  Weather
