Darin' Daisy...

Hey everyone!


It's Whimsical Wednesday and time for another DIEDRICH DARE!


This week, my darling little dude Nicky provided us with a SUPER fun sketch:


I am just LOVING this new Unity set, "Crazy for Daisies" and couldn't WAIT to ink it up!  For this first time in a LONG time I didn't "color" the stamp...it felt weird, you know?  Weird, but good!   So this is what I came up with, using some GORGEOUS new DP I scored while shopping with my friend and fellow UNITY DT gal, Amber.  It's from the DCWV Cafe Mediterranean Stack and I LOVE it!


I scored some really pretty lace by the yard at Jo-Ann too and used it for this bright and cheery card.  I have ALWAYS loved Daisies-in fact, I had them in my wedding bouquet.  As much as I love roses and expensive lilies, etc., the truth is well, for one I have horrible alleries and for two, I'm really just a daisy girl.   I love the simple beauty to them and the happiness they evoke, not to mention the beautiful colors you can get them in now!   


There's really something about DAISIES that just makes me smile, much like UNITY and much like my fellow DAREDEVILS, not to mention the 4 amazing children behind the DARE itself!   I am so blessed to see the creativity being passed on and how much they enjoy everything about my cardmaking :)   They are the coolest little peeps I've ever met :)  


Thanks, Nicky boy, for another fantastic sketch, and make sure to check out the DARE BLOG as well as our players this week:




Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more UNITY fun and THANKS AGAIN for being patient with me while I play catch up, LOL!  Oh, and one more {ippity} lil' thing:
