New Releases and a New Challenge at A Day for Daisies

Fridays always mean new releases at A Day for Daisies, but today happens to also be the start of a new challenge as well! You are REALLY going to love this challenge, as it is a free-for-all as long as you use your ADFD images. yep, anything goes! and you have really got to see the fun new images Tammy has drawn! adorable, adorable!

I had the pleasure of using 2 of the cute new mechanical puppet animal images - the bunny & lamb, on my card. I tried to give them a bit of a retro vintage feel with this. I also tried something VERY new to me - a quilting technique that Arielle showed us from a tut over on SCS. It is no secret that I can't sew worth beans, so this was fun to try. I know I'll be doing it again! lots of faux stitching on here, of course! ;)

papers are Basic Grey Picadilly. I know y'all are going to get so tired of seeing these, but gosh, they are so wonderful! I think either Santa is going to need to bring me another paper pad or I'm gonna have to break down and buy one after the new year. this one is almost gone! I used baby buttons to attach the 'parts' to the animals, distress stickles on their cute little tails and the rose, & trim is Maya Road. senti is Create with TLC.

Fantastic "quilting" you've done! I love your sweet animals and how you attached their "parts". As for your papers, I love them to so enjoy them all you want!
