A Daisy A Day Dear

"I'll give you a daisy a day dear,
I'll give you a daisy a day,
I'll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away"

Ok, I am really showing my age with this one but I  love the words to this old song! A lot of you will be much too young to remember it but you should "Google" it.....the words are so beautiful!
This gorgeous image is from the uber talented Krista Smith of Saturated Canary & is called Springtime. I've had it forever but am only now feeling comfortable enough to color her hair! She is colored with copics & I had a major copic oops.... when I was nearly finished coloring a big blob of green splatted on the paper! AAHHH! Luckily I was able to cover it up with the stem of the beautiful Penny Black die cut daisy! The picket fence & the cloud are Memory Box & the butterfly is Martha Stewart. I am so happy with the way this card turned out!

Ssshhh....don't tell anyone but it has been 3 whole days since we have had any rain & it has actually been hot outside! I managed to get out & do some much needed gardening today. I belong to the local garden club here in our little town & we are having our annual flower show next month. One of the categories is "fairy gardens". I'm having so much fun creating my little miniature world. I decided to do an Irish county theme to honor my birthplace. I have made a thatched roof cottage which turned out wonderful! I will post a picture when it is all finished. Have a great day!

A Little Birdie Told Me!

Hello blogging friends. I haven't  been around for awhile so I hope this finds you all well & enjoying better weather than we are here!

We have had an absolutely horrible spring in Manitoba & it appears to be continuing into summer! We have had so much rain that communities have had to be evacuated because of overland flooding. We planted our garden at the end of May & haven't had to water it once! My poor flowers are drowning. However, it could be worse. The small farming community that my husband's family came from had a tornado touch down on Sat. & the winds were so strong it threw a combine 70meters! Our property is on the Lee River but the house is up hill from the water so we have no fear of flooding. As I sit here writing this post there is another thunder storm raging outside. (the second one today)

Now, on to my card. This adorable image is Wryn & wren  from Tiddly Inks. This is my first ever Tiddly Inks card but it won't be y last...Christy's images are so cute I will definitely be back for more. Wryn is colored with copic markers. The lovely DP is from Daisy Bucket & the CS is Prism. I have used dies from Spellbinders & Memory Box. The lace is from my stash & the heart gems are Recollections.
