Inspired By Stamping Challenge #54 - Daisy Thanks

Welcome, everyone!  Boy, are we ever having a lovely Spring here in the Northeast.  Other than a brief spell where the weather was so stinkin' hot, it's been a true Spring, with moderate temps and cool nights, bright blue skies and beautiful breezes.  Love!  I know some folks like it HOT, but not this girl.  Spring and Fall are my absolute faves.

Glad you popped in, 'cause I'm playing along in an Inspired By Stamping challenge.  I felt like going clean-and-simple, with a bright daisy so reminiscent of summer days to come.


It's got some clear glitter on there...can you see it?  The button is vintage and came from my aunt's stash (thanks, Aunt Kay!).


I traced over the leaves with Glossy Accents, and this pic shows it off best.  The big, bold sentiment is one of my IBS faves from the set Big Notes II.


Enjoy your day, and thank you for your visit!



Stamps:  Daisies, Big Notes II - Inspired By Stamping Paper: green, white cardstock; chevron pattern Ink:  Black, green Fibers:  twine Accessories:  Copic markers; piercing tool; Crystal Glitter, Glossy Accents, pearls, vintage button

I pop over and you're doing CAS! Receiving this card would be like getting sunshine in an envelope. So very cheerful. We are still waiting for summer to show its face here... but at least the garden continues to grow as if everything were normal.
