Daisy Smile Card

DAISY SMILE

Yesterday was the weekly shop, I don’t know why but it always leaves me exhausted and despite lugging it all the way uphill home (we don’t drive), I am not getting any fitter. This could be because Lockdown diet is not going well, I have no self control. This time I have portioned everyone’s snacks out so all the goodies are not sat there calling me. I will do this 😆

Today’s card is the only in-colour I haven’t really used, Cinnamon Cider. See even that makes me think of food, I love cinnamon. Maybe I need to start the day with cinnamon and apple porridge 😆

I love the way the Daisy Lane stamp set works so well, with this paper. If you buy the in-colour multipack Cardstock, you could do the daisies in Bumble Bee to match the DSP, but I preferred the lighter yellow for my daisies and as I don’t yet have the new in-colour blends I was able to use the So Saffron Blend for the inside of my white daisy.

Lovely You Card

Lovely You Card

Yesterday was a great day, my eldest daughter came up to visit from near Bristol. Four out of my five children and my two grandchildren met up for a socially distanced visit in my middle daughter’s garden. It was only for a couple of hours, but it was just lovely to see them all. I usually see my grandchildren several times a week, but because of lockdown I have only seen them a handful of times since March and some of those were just to wave to from the front door.  Unfortunately, my daughter goes home again tomorrow so it will be a while until we can do it again, but it put a great big smile on my face.

For this card I made my own background using the Lovely You stamp set and a mix of last year’s and this year’s in-colours

This card is a W fold, which I’ve not done before. It was a lot of fun to make and used the wonderful Boho Indigo Product Medley, which is now on my ‘must buy’ list  button_see-it-here

I will have another great project from the Pinkies weekend to share with you tomorrow.

Until next time, happy crafting
