Sweet Daisy

Good Morning everyone....how fantastic was the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games!!  David and I stayed up into the wee hours to see it all...The whole ceremony was fantastic and those drummers and all the volunteers were just amazing!, and the lighting of the flame was really something very special!!

Now for another special event....Make it Monday has reached its 100th Linky Party.......I would just like to say a BIG congratulations to our lovely boss Michelle and to all the other member's of the team who have made Make it Monday such a success, and of course all you lovely papercraft enthusiasts!!!......So there is a Special prize this week for one lucky commentator...one of the DT is offering candy to a random commentator, so be sure to visit each DT member and leave a comment...This is the lovely candy up for grabs...2 packs of flourish with a bling, several ribbons and some bows... The winner will be announced next week so pop back and see if you were the lucky one!!



This week we are being sponsored by the lovely Scrapbook Sisters.  The image I chose for today is this little cutie called Sweet Daisy...designed by Gayle Bond..


The inside


I coloured her with Prisma Pencils and gave her flowers a touch of Glamour Dust.  I used Marianne Dies for the little birdie and bird box and fencing.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the butterflies and a Memory Box die for the corner.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts touched up with Diamond stickles.  My pearls were from the Hobby house.  I used brown Bazzill card and the Design Papers are called New Leaf by First Edition.  The design papers are really gorgeous and sparkle like you wont believe, they don't show up to well on the pants photos though lol!  The inside is a plainer version....
I would like to enter for the following challenges



Scrapbook sisters are offering a prize of 5 digis to the random winner...remember all you have to do is comment on another entrants card so the more times you comment the more chances you have of winning

This lovely Steam punk card by Jacqueline


I love steam punk, but find it difficult to do....I just loved this image and it has been so beautifully coloured by Jacqueline it is steam punk but has also remained very feminine as her lovely sentiment says!!! be sure to visit her and leave a little love.....

Wow! hope you are still with me lol!! Such a long post this week....will say cheery bye for now...have a great week....take care,
Big Hugs,
Marjorie

  5. Majorie this card is amazing. the colours and the layout are so beautiful and I love the combination. Glad that you watched until late too - I am officially sleep deprived as I have watched it all from the start so far and even after three days my eyes are hanging out of my head, my temper frayed and the kids going hungry. No time for craft! But I found your card very inspiring - saw it as I linked up to MIM.

  12. Hi Marjorie

    My three boys were up at 5:30am to watch the opening ceremony. It's the first time they have really been old enough to get in to the whole thing and they are loving it.

    Your card is simply beautiful! What lovely paper, and you have done a superb job of colouring to co-ordinate.

    Your POTW is gorgeous, what a fun card.

    The first one is fresh and summery and I adore the image. I really love the backing paper on this card.
