Windmills of my mind.......

Hi everyone, and an extra hi to my newest followers, hope you enjoy my crafty journey.
I have had a weekend that has just been a social whirl,and it has been lovely catching up with friends that I haven't seen in a while. I have not had that much time to get in my crafty space but what little time I have had I have used to use up some distress inked crafty scraps.

I have a bit of a thing about circles so got out a couple of circle punches and punched out from some scraps. I then starting getting these song lyrics running through my mind.
"Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind"
so I thought that would be a great statement on my card so printed from my PC.
other stamps include from designs by Ryn - Raindrops & Sea Bubbles
also Quantum by Deep Red Stamps. 
The stamped woman's face is from Viva las Vegastamps and her eyes and lips have been coloured with distress ink and then highlighted with Glossy accents I love how it has made her eyes look . 

I am entering this into this months challenge over at Country View Crafts  where August's  challenge is "Quotations & Sayings"

Thanks for visiting and see you soon
