Dazzling Daisy Design

Aug 16, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards


I got an honorable mention HERE on Nichole’s Blog for THIS card! I was very excited about that, and surprised. I have tons of ideas flowing for her next set, and alterable item’s.

I am stalking my mail man ALL next week! I have stuff coming form all over :D. PLUS it my wedding anniversary and we are going away, OVERNIGHT- WITHOUT THE KIDS! How cool is that!

We are going to a really nice restaurant-staying by the lake, and we will go bowling, mini golfing, go carts, and a actual drive in movie theater, where they show 2 movies! They have 4 screens so you have 8 movies to choose from-all current! YEAH!!!

I know BLAH BLAH BLAH-sorry its just been a good day. I figure I share the bad, may as well share the good-ESPECIALLY the good. Who wants to listen/read about a downer all the time,right? We all have our days, but some people are always gloom in doom. That makes me insane.

OK lets get to the card-

I LOVE the SU! set True Friend. Its such a pretty set. I have a few things I’ve made so far, but am holding onto them till later! Got to get you to come back right?

One will be used for my Saturday Sketch! So be sure to check in for that OK!

When I began stamping, I went into my stamp room, and pulled the window blind ALL the way up to let as much sunshine as possible. I planned on using this set-but was unsure what colors I’d put together.

As I opened the window I saw the prettiest yellow daisies! So I thought that would be my inspiration for this card! I dont use yellow alot, so thought it would be fun.

So here is my Dazzling Daisy Design

The feel/colors of the card reflects my happy mood 😀 Banana, choc. chip, old olive, Kraft.

Inks are all versamagic dew drops in various colors. Oh and some SU makers for the little dots.

Im LOVING my layout! LOL! I totally enjoy layering, and document ALL my sketches in a book. Great for those HIT A RUT times. I highly recommend it. You can just go through your own gallery at SCS and start jotting down some of your faves. I dont use other people’s Layouts in my book-only my own. WHY? Cause if you intentionally CASE someone you should give proper credit. I dont really ever CASE anyone, and if I did wouldnt want to forget who if I did. IF you do copy someones things-make sure you jot down their info. Its just common courtesy! Also DONT submit it for contest/publication. These are unwritten rules.

OK now that I shared that- I just got some Kraft color taffeta ribbon from SU! So HAD to incorporate that as well. What a great color of ribbon-FINALLY they added colors like that one. Im in love with the taffeta ribbon and have barely used grosgrain since the Martha Stewart stuff and now SU!

The sentiment is Absolutley Fabulous (ordered accidentally in place of Fabulous Flowers). I like it.

I liked the versamagic in yellow on the chocolate. Simple touch of detail that keeps with the flow. The piercing was done with my Onare Template.

Thats pretty much it.

I’ve been playing with my Bellas lately too. More on them tomorrow!!!

I have a little time for fun now. I just finished my last month on the SCS Dirty Dozen. Its sad for it to be over. I will miss it. I will especially miss the reveals, and excitement each month. All the girls are just amazing. Everyone works so hard-you’d never even believe the work that we put into each piece. This last month was difficult for me with the theme and family obligations and whatnot, so now there will be less stress as far as that goes. It was truly an honor to even be considered, let alone part of the team.

I really want to thank ALL of you, for making that possible, supporting the site, all your comments, and sharing. Thanks for visiting me here, and following me on this crazy journey.

Finding SCS is when I really began to grow as a stamper/artist. It cost me more money that I care to even acknowledge too! It also helped me “meet” so many wonderful PSF’s like you.

Stampers are wonderfully amazing people 😀 So thanks!

Till tomorrow……………………………………………………………………………………..

Like Dad

This photo was taken the other day. It was late, and Noah began flexing saying he has “big guns”! A term used by my brother, who is a professional arm wrestler! He was even on ESPN2 for a arm wrestling tournament. He is a HUGE all muscle guy. When we watched his tournament  on TV he would flex and yell “Yeah these are the big guns”-Oh boy! A term Noah quickly picked up on.

Noah say’s “Someday, Im gonna be big and strong just like daddy!” So we thought it would be cute to get them together.

I know someday he will be. I think this will be a great photo for “someday” It will be here before I know it!

He looks so much like daddy! Noah and Jason have am amazing bond and relationship. I feel so blessed that my children are able to have such a wonderful father.

We didnt have a great dad. Never around. Alcholic. Enough said.

Im happy my kids will never know that life. I think especially for boys. I look at the stuff Noah is into and wonder how I would ever raise him alone.

Jason is Noah’s hero, and mine too!

This was when Noah was 8 months old. It was at one of his modeling photo shoots. Look at that baby face!
