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!

  17. Your card is gorgeous Renee, you've done a brilliant job colouring her in. I cringed when I read about the green blob... it's always after you've finished all the hard work! However, you've done a wonderful job covering it up with the daisy, if you hadn't mentioned it I never would have known.

  18. That's such good news about the dry weather! I haven't heard much on the news so I'm thinking all is good now.

    Your card is so lovely! What an AMAZING job you've done on the hair! I've had many a strategically placed embellishment on my creations too. I would never have guessed there was a blob hiding under your pretty daisy. It turned out to be the perfect touch on your card!!


Thank you so much for stopping for a visit! I love reading your comments & appreciate the time you take to leave them!
Hugs, Renee
