A Couple of things to share

Good Evening, yes I'm back this evening with another post.  Wow - We're on a roll now....
I've had a GREAT Day spending time playing with my stamps, papers, and ink of course.... So I thought I'd come and share the results from my "Play Time" today. 

To save on time, I have 2 things to share here, each one for a seperate challenge, but before I get started, I just have to say how VERY excited I am to Finally have this particular stamp in my inky little hands....  I can not even begin to tell you how very long I've wanted "Daisy" you all must know who "Daisy" is, don't you? 

Once upon a time, she was licensed to Sugar Nellie, and for some reason I was never able to get her.  Either she was sold out or something I don't know, but I would watch and watch for my opportunity, but that opportunity never came...  Imagine how Very excited I was to hear the news from Elisabeth Bell herself, that "Daisy" would be released again after being licensed to a different company.

Ohhhhh My - The excitement was almost too much for me to handle... I waited patiently to find out just what company would be re-releasing her.  Elisabeth wouldn't share that little secret...  Well guess what?  It just so happens that Elphine House Australia is the proud new owner of this stamp.  Now just how lucky to you think I really feel?  I have Daisy - I have Daisy.... I couldn't wait to play with her, soooooo, It's time to share with you all, my distressed little "Thank You" card that I made for this weeks Challenge over at the "Truly Scrumptious" Challenge Blog "Daisy" truly is Scrumptious, isn't she?

If you are like me, and have been waiting and waiting and waiting some more for the opportunity to get your inky fingers on a "Daisy" Stamp of your own, then why not head over to that Elphine House Australia's Shop  right now.... I'd hate to see you miss out.... She's quite a hot little item, so hurry up and get over there, so you can snag her for yourself.  =)  She is one of those stamps that you just can't be without, and she's so versitile, and great for almost any occassion.  Oh I just love her to pieces.

Now, the 2nd thing I worked on today is a cute little birthday card for a special 6 year old... (well she's almost 6) ha ha...   Imagine a 6 year old loving the whole "Flower Power" idea of the 60's?  Well this little girl can't get enough of "Flower Powers, and Peace Signs" as she puts it...  LOL

So this card was made especially for her using one of the Sweet Hope & Grace girls from The Greeting Farm.  I followed the sketch for this weeks "Sketch Saturday's Challenge" and I must say it was a fun one to follow.  I hope you like the card.  =)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and taking a look at what I spent my "Play Time" working on....

WOW Lynda these are beautiful I so love the fantastic design of that first card, what wonderful detail, colours and embellishments, that image of Daisy is my all time favourite and was one of the first stamps I bought. That second card is also full of wonderful detail, the colours and flowers along with the image look superb.
