Daisies and friend

Another sweet daisy card, but this time around, I'm using a digital from Di's Digi Designs.   I've colored this cute bear with prismas, and after coloring the daisies, I added stickles for the sparkle, so the daisies would match the 3-D daisies I added to the card.   The grass is a die cut, the butterflies were done with a punch, then a gem added to the centers.   A couple layered doilies with a little gingham ribbon bow and voila, a cute summertime card.

Spring daffodil

This bunny comes from Whimsy, designed by Lee Holland.    I've colored with prismas, and added a ladybug button to the leaf, but the stamp does already have a ladybug in that spot -- I just wanted to give it a more 3-D look.   I added a white picket fence die cut, and threaded green ribbon thru, adding the flowers, of which the two smallest flowers have brad centers.   Candi-dots are added at the upper corner with foam dots for more dimension.  Some sparkly gems and layered doilies complete my card design.

Daisies galore !

This Lacy Sunshine image is adorable with her apparent green thumb, when it comes to growing daisies.  I've colored this image with prismas, then carried on the daisy theme with 3-D stickers from Recollections.   As you can see peeking out a bit, I used daisy background paper as well as tucking a couple layered doilies behind.   A pretty tied bows tops it off, as well as a coordinating butterfly.   Hope anyone that has a flower garden is as successful as this cutie-pie.

Isobel loves flowers

This digital gal is Isobel from Crafty Sentiments Designs, that I've colored up with prismas.   I've continued the rose theme in her basket to a couple of the corners and used a corner die cut for some foliage.  It's hard to see, but I've put a strip of mesh drywall tape behind the image, and then ran the polka dotted ribbon thru the middle over it.  I've added a butterfly, some pearls and then the sentiment to complete this creation.   Thanks so much for coming in to view.

Bear hugs to you !!

When I saw this Whimsie Doodles digital, I just knew I had to have it . . . I'm a sucker for cute teddy bears, and added with an adorable girl, just clinched my decision.  She's been colored with prismas, then I added the doilies and flowers (notice the heart brad centers), and the heart and teddy are die cuts.  Bear hugs to all you out there today, and thanks for coming in to view my creation.

Sitting pretty in peach

This is a Bildalarma image, of which the company has closed down, as far as I know.  I don't know why I very seldom use these peachy colors, but I sure do like the soft look.  My image was colored with my usual prismas, the foliage is a die cut, the upper corners are a punch.  I've added peach ribbon roses to the centers of my flowers, and a peach ribbon across the bottom.  Wishing everyone a peachy day!

Addicted to coloring

This artistic girl, armed with her colored pencils, comes from My Besties, and my BFF, Gail,  bought this image for me, since she knows I use prisma pencils on the majority of my cards.   And, yes, I did color her with prismas - hahaha, how could I do otherwise !!  That's a strip of lace with heart ribbon atop it, behind my image (as Gail loves lace and this card was sent to her, of course).  The filigree corners are a die cut, with tiny red gems added, and then I placed heart gems at the upper and lower corners.   I just love the striking contrast of red and black together, don't you?
