The day is overflowing with Daisies ;)

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Today I have several cards using images from A Day for Daisies to show you, so be prepared to be wowed by daisy overload! ;)

The first card uses this precious bunny from the September Club Kit, "Flowers for Mrs." the papers are Daisy D's..... sigh..... okay, won't talk about how much I miss that company AGAIN! I wanted this little guy to have a shabby country feel. I distressed the Prima flower with inks and water to help add to the feel. buttons are from my vintage stash and an old shirt of David's... shhhhh! there is just a touch of shimmerz paint on the flowers of the main image for a bit of shine.

My next card is a sneaky peek from the new October Club Kit, using this beautiful image, "Happy Tree." I so love these nature images from Tammy! paper is from K & Co. Flora and Fauna collection. buttons are from my vintage stash. the only bit of sparkle is on all things pink! ;) I know you aren't the least bit surprised by that! grins! I added little touches of stickles to the pink flowers on the main image as well as the pretty little pink rose. the senti is from Create with TLC.

the coloring on this was inspired by a recent drive around my community. I saw these wonderful yellow birds playing near the mailbox at Camp. I really need to find out what they were, because they were so pretty! as the leaves on the trees are turning such beautiful colors, some gorgeous wildflowers are appearing as well. spots of purple appear everywhere with the most delightful spikes of lavender flowers in the fields. again, I need to do some investigating to discover what these are. the colors of fall in Ohio are a sight to behold!!!
