Daisy Inspriation

Good Morning everyone! How's it going? I hope your day is starting off GREAT! I've been to the gym...watered my flowers...got a load of laundry going and watched my daughter fall off of her horse for the very first time! She wasn't hurt (I'm thanking God) and she got back on! It was really weird because I usually come home from the gym and soak in a hot bath (I really new a hot tub), but this morning after reading The Daily Bread I heard a whisper telling me I needed to be out there with my daughter while she was riding. I needed her to know that I cared and was interested in watching her...AND I had this sense that something might happen! I'm so happy that I listened and that I was out there! I LOVE it when I can see God working in my life...even if it's just getting me out there to watch my girl fall off her horse and encourage her to get back on! Kate just came down stairs to say thanks for getting her back on and that she wouldn't have done it had I not been out there...what a gift! It's AMAZING to me! 

Remember that card I shared yesterday that I was going to have my class make last night? Well...I didn't have a class last night (scatterbrain), it's next Monday evening so I decided not to finish prepping but to play instead!

A while back, I was watering my flowers and took this photo as inspiration for a card! Photo's help me REMEMBER what I want to do! I also remember my life through photos! My husband will be talking about a past adventure and I'll be seeing photos that I took during that time and be able to say...oh yeah...that was 1992 and Seth was a baby and we were here....blah, blah, blah.  I LOVE that photos do that for me!!

Anyway...here's the card that I created!  I LOVE it!  My card base is Whisper White and my first layer is a piece 4" X 5 1/4" Tranquil Tide card stock. Next I used my Timeless Texture stamp set to create a Crushed Curry background on a piece of 
3 3/4" X 5" Whisper White card stock. Next I cut a piece of Watercolor paper with my large Stitched Shapes Oval framelit and used my Aqua Painter with Bermuda Bay ink for a color wash background.  I stamped the stem using Tranquil Tide ink and the Daisy's Delight stamp set. The oval is attached with dimensionals, but before I attached it I added a few Linen Thread loops. Last, I added my daisy which I made by cutting one daisy with my Daisy Punch, cutting it in half, layering it and rounding the petals back using my bone folder. The Early Espresso center of the daisy is cut with the Swirly Scribbles thinlit and embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. Last I added a sentiment which is from the Best Birds stamp set and a few Glitter Enamel Dots. I LOVE how it turned out...just how I PICTURED it!

Hey...thanks BUNCHES for stopping by today! You know I LOVE creating and I LOVE sharing my creations with you! Have a FANTASTIC day!
