Life is Sweet with You

Coffee of the Day - Toffee Cream

I am pleased to announce that I was asked by a lovely lady by the name of Diane Noble to join her team at Diane's Daydream Designs! you might recognize some of the other artists and designers that have teamed with Diane. they are some of the most talented, kind, friendly women in the crafting community! I am so tickled to be part of this group of Christian women! :)

I hope to bring you a project every Monday featuring products from the Daydream Designs store. Today I have a card for you using 2 images from Diane's Preserving Sweetness Outline set and digital paper from her Poppies for You collection. btw - you can grab this paper as a freebie over on Diane's blog right here! :)

I really wanted to play up the homespun theme with my card, so I used a doily and gingham ribbon. a sentiment from the Jam Packed with Love sentiment set was turned into a little banner. the flower and matching leaf are by Petaloo. they remind me of the blossoms on strawberry plants. the little bee is a sticker by SRM. some sequins, vintage buttons, and faux stiching complete the card. mixing the ginghams with shads of kraft helps bring the country feel to heart!

I apologize that I didn't get my blog candy uploaded yesterday. Mick popped in for a surprise visit, so that was a nice treat! will try to get that done today.
