Knitting Daisy May


Wow we are really getting the white stuff this year. Grandkids rang this morning sooo excited because their school is closed and Daddy is also home so they are all going sledging this morning…. oh to be young again and have all that youthful energy…. no way back to my cards.

Patricia is going to love this one as she is into her knitting at the moment. I have also picked up the needles again, first time in…. can’t remember moving on.

Another CDM image …. what am I like, can’t resist her at the moment.

Entering her for both these challenges:

Creative Card Crew Challenge # 42 – Distressing

My Time To Craft Challenge # 73 – Blue & Brown.

Used so many colouring items on her – Copics, Promarkers (which P has lent me to see if I like using them) and distressing inks. Used another fancy stitch for the paper, flowers, baubles and tassels all from stash. Really into the tassles at the moment.


Skip into Spring with Daisy May


This card sings…. Spring to me.

Hope you have all popped over to Daisy May Digi Stamps to collect your freebie.

This card has been made for a very special person’s birthday, will be putting a name and sentiment on the card later.

Linnie has written on her blog – Fill her basket with your choice of embellies … which I did … flowers, flowers and more flowers … This has given the card a lot of height so I am in the process of making a box that matches the card, will post when done.

Because Daisy May is looking behind her my interpretation of the image was … something falling out of her basket. She has been coloured with both Pro Markers and water colour pencils. Cut her out with a nestie frame (scalloped edge one) then cut out another frame with DP, cut off the scallops and edged around the image. Matted and layered her. Used a MS deep edge punch – floral vine, which at the moment is one of my favourites. Picked a scalloped and a straight stitch for the papers which are all from K & Co, lace flowers and jewelled brad from stash.


New Love


Can you Adam and Eve it I have just broken my New Years Resolution ….. Decided not to make the usual this year (diet, spend less money etc) – I’m sure you all get the picture …. my resolution was …. to start using less of the digital download papers and use more from my stash. I have DT papers all over the house (especially K & Co and Basic Grey just love them) but I bring them out, stroke, look and then put away again (sure I’m not the only one).

My first card for 2010 is for all these challenges:

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge New

Lily-Boo Too Challenge Blog Valentine

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #64 New Beginnings

Rainbow Lady’s Challenge # 84 New

By the Cute and Girly – New

Crafty Ann’s Challenge #5 – New

Cute Daisy May ChallengeLove

The image is from Cute Daisy May Digi Stamps download, (by the way if you hop over now there is a New Year freebie up for grabs and she is gorgeous – please please please don’t forget to come back).

So far, this part OK, resolution still intact. The next part is where it gets broken….. wanted to use the colours of the Fussy and Fancy Blog….. can you believe it, after hunting ages through my stash could not find the bubble pinky papers I wanted. Hence went back to good old favourite Pink Petticoat. Quickest time I can remember for me to break my resolution….. ah well, get to keep my stash.

Printed image and then cut out with a cookie cutter, used my water colours pencils to colour. Got to use two of my new MS punches. Punched out two hearts and added a nestie label which I put through the printer to add the sentiment. Flowers, bauble and cord all from stash.
