A Day for Daisies~freebie


Hi there! I discovered that "A day for Daisies" stamp store offers a free digital image now and again...I have always enjoyed the whimsy of these images and since it was free; decided to try a card! This little fairy image was fun to color up...a little stickles was added to her wings and a very simple layout with a new Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder for the background. The tag was stamped with a sentiment, and a little background flower was stamped in various colors to match the designer paper. a wisp of rose lace was cut to add to the gossamer effect. She is sweet, although this photo did not come out really well on this dark day.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I always look forward to any comments left here!! May you have a blessed day!

Lili of the Valley~Tea Party!


Hi friends, and welcome to my little corner of creativity! It's a new year, and I've been doing a little stamping! I was looking through some of my individual stamps the other day for this little cutie image after a friend and fellow stamper had been featuring a few of her cards from Lili of the Valley. I have had this image for awhile and been a little intimidated to color it. But once I started, it was so much fun, and where else will I find a Tiffany Blue teapot than in my own imagination? I liked that these girls have quite a lot of style going on with their pink polka dots and designer bags...I giggled a bit while coloring these.
The paper was the starting point, but by the time I was "finished" adding papers, ribbon, enamel dots, and that little blossomed punch stamp from "Flourishes," I almost wish I had chosen a bit smaller print for the background...but I still really like the end result.
Thank you for coming to my little tea party, I hope you leave with a smile!!
