A Day for Daisies - so much to see!

I have a LOT to show you in this post from A Day for Daisies, so I hope you are well rested and your coffee cup is full! grins! but I promise you will be so in love with what Tammy has drawn.....

First up is my project with one of her new releases for this week - all with the theme of 'cozy'. I am so in love with the vintage feel of this mother and daughter pair out shopping. It reminds me of the Victorian Christmas that my Jr. & Sr. High choirs used to sing at in Galveston, Texas back when I was in school. I was always in love with the beautiful dresses the girls and ladies wore!

Papers are Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, holly sprig is Prima, wonderful ribbon is SU!, buttons are vintage, and little dots of stickles have been added here & there for sparkle. Music stamp is A*Muse while senti is Shady Tree Studios.

Sparkle - vintage Christmas
Cupcake Crafts - traditional Christmas
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Christmas
Digital Tuesday - go green
I Brake for Challenges - vintage
Ruby's Rainbow - music
Cupcake Craft - color on kraft

The next 2 projects are from the November Club Kit. Both use papers from the Basic Grey Picadilly collection. I so adore these papers!

For the first card, I typed the definition of 'wisdom' into a document numerous times and then printed the image over it. the senti comes from Paulette at Create with TLC. my family said that it looked as if the girls were walking down the stairs of a library. I wanted it to look as if they were starting off on an adventure of learning. goofy, I know, but that is what I first saw when I looked at this beautiful image. isn't it funny what we see when we look at something? flower is Prima.

Paper Shelter - anything goes
Make it Monday - anything goes

Again, this card uses the Picadilly papers, vintage buttons, and little baby Prima flowers. senti is also TLC.

Seems a Little Sketchy - sketch
Divas by Design - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
