I hope everyone is having a good week. At school we just finished the state mandated MCAS testing. If you ask anyone at school they will tell you that they are so glad it is over for another year! We are now down to the countdown of 30 school days and we will have the summer vacation break, YEAH!!!! Then I will have lots of time to make cards, work in my garden and keep my house clean.

This card was made with one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps. I wanted Daisy the most of any of the stamps I ordered. She is so fun to color with Copics. When I finished her I wanted to do something different with the image so I decided to put her behind the circles instead on top of them. The card looked plain so I decided to use my Rubber Stamp Tapestry set and make a wreath of sorts around her. I like the way it came out except I wish I made the top layer Cool Caribbean instead of Lavender Lace. I think the flowers would have shown up more. Next time I will remember that. I also pulled it apart a few times to add DP on the bottom and punch the corners. I had too much time in Vermont to keep trying to make it better. The wreath around Daisy and the ring of flowers in her hair have lots of Stickles on them to make the card sparkle!

Anyone that knows me also knows I always have to have words of some sort on the front of my cards. This one doesn't because I just can't seem to decide what I want the card to say. Has this happened to anyone else? I have gotten use to looking at it without one but I am sure before I give to someone the right words will come to me. Thank goodness she is cute enough not to need words though.

Stamps: Sugar Nellie, Rubber Stamp Tapestry
Paper: SU Cool Carribean, Lavendar Lace, Neenah white and DP Magenta
Ink: Various SU colors, Memento black and Copics
Accessories: MS butterfly punch, SU punch, Nesties, Stickles, Michaels pearl stickers, JoAnns pearl ribbon and Michaels ribbon

I hope you like my Daisy and come back soon to see the other Sugar Nellies that I have been working with.
Thanks for looking,
