Read All About It - Daisy May Involved in.............

Click on image to enlarge

....Protest March!!!

Saving the earth is obviously something Dasiy May feels strongly about......or is it the chocolate that's the main issue I wonder??
Sorry, I'll be serious now, it's been a somewhat stressful afternoon and I decided to have Daisy May help me to wind down and she's come up trumps as usual. This card is for the Cute Daisy May Challenge #6 which is to use pink and brown and also the Sketch and Stash Challenge #7. My new stash is the Daisy May download and the pink bp which is one of my own. The brown paper is from dovecraft, all the mats were cut on the robo and the text stamps are rubbadubbadoo and a freebie from a magazine. Daisy has been coloured with twinkling H2Os and the gold mat was put through the cuttlebug.
I hope that Linnie will forgive me for letting her go on the march and will let me babysit again because I do enjoy Dasiy's company.
Thank you for your visit today and for putting up with my silliness!

What my hands mean to me

Click on image to enlarge

The card I'm sharing with you today is for two challenges, Rainbow Lady's challenge which this week is "Hands" and the sketch for the brand new challenge, Dare you to Digi stamp which was launched on friday.
Like most people, I tend to take my hands for granted, but they are what allow me to bring my creativity into a physical presence and, as a Spiritual Healer, they are my channel for the Healing Energy. Healing doesn't just have value when a condition can be cured, it also has immense value in improving the quality of life for people who have chronic or terminal illnesses and there are few things, if any, to beat the satisfaction of helping someone so I decided to make a card to celebrate this particular way I use my hands.
The lighter blue bp is one of my own designs and the navy one has been in my stash for so long that I haven't a clue from whence it came. The heart, dove and sentiment are all rubber stamps but the hands are one of my own drawings (of my own hand!!) that I have turned into a digi stamp and coloured with coloursoft pencils and baby oil. The two mats behind the hands I designed and cut out using the robo.
Thank you for stimulating my creativity yet again Cynthia and thank you all for your visit today.

Golden Girl

Yellow isn't a colour I work with a great deal, especially as the main colour but this card just seemed to drive itself - I found myself reaching for yellow to colour Daisy May when I had intended to use pale blue and that was it! I'm not complaining though because I do like the result. So, to what I've used. The sketch is this week's Cute Daisy May Challenge. The image is from Daisy May sheet 15 and has been coloured with a mixture of twinkling H2Os and sakura stardust pen, the bps are K & Co and Artylicous. The scalloped card behind Daisy May has been cut out with the robo and embossed twice with two different cuttlebug folders which is this week's challenge at the Cuttlebug Spot. I'm also entering this card into this week's Creative Card Crew Challenge which is texture.

These images are so seriously gorgeous and lovely to work with that I'm in danger of getting into cute!! lol!

Linnie is also looking for a new DT member for the Daisy May Challenge so if you would like to be considered, click on the link above to find out what you need to do.
