Sweet Daisies

Morning Everyone,

Can't believe it's Monday already and thank goodness it's a bank holiday here in the UK.  I'm worn out painting, and no, not the usual craft kind that I like, but the hall, stairs and landing, and with all the cleaning of paintwork and tidying up afterwards I am shattered.  Second coat and then it will be all done awaiting the arrival of the new carpet.  I then have 5 doors to get painted in the week as we start the preparation in the kitchen.  A woman's work certainly is never done!

Well it's my DT card for Live and Love Crafts today and I couldn't help also make it my DT card for LittleDarlings and use this oh so sweet image called "Sweet Daisies"  I'm loving all the images Angie sent me and I can't wait to ink them up.  Well actually, I only have one left to ink, hehehe, so watch this space.

Sweet Daisies was such a joy to colour.  I used the Tim Holtz Distress Markers, just love using these for vintage style work.  I have added some shabby white frantage around the edges and also distressed with the walnut stain distress ink pad. Oh, I nearly forgot to tell you what the theme is that Sandy has set for us this week, oops, I certainly would have been sent to the naughty corner for sure, lol.  Well, it's "Keys".  Sandy has some fabulous keys in so many different styles, so if you haven't peeked you really should.

Before you look at my card,  I have used a soooooo new hot off the press gorgeous beyond words lace, that it isn't listed in the store yet.  I know Sandy is doing her best to try and get it listed today, so don't forget to check the store later as you won't want to miss it.  It's available in the ivory, which I have used and also in white.

 The gorgeous papers are MayaDesigns latest release, Sofiero, they are all so pretty.

So here's the key I have chosen to use and there is a little sunken circle to place a bead or diamante in but I chose to add a little ickle wild orchid craft rose, aren't those two tone roses beautiful. You'll also notice to the left a Melissa Francess keyhole, sooooo cute and went perfectly with the filagree key.

In the top left you will notice a Melissa Frances Butterfly and I have put a prima "SWEET" sentiment typo lightbulb, sooooooo cute, and just to the right here are some gorgeous flowers, and only a few of what Sandy now has to offer. You will see all the links in the thumbnails at the bottom of the post as usual.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
Wild Orchid Crafts - Pink/Cream

This is freakin' incredible!! I have those Tim Holtz DM's and got so frustrated with them I ended up buying on the DI's. They seem easier to use but I can't seem to wrap my head around it. Wish I could hang out with someone for an afternoon because they do go so well with making anything look vintage like. LOVE that lace!! Just got my DT package with the new papers and flowers so was excited to see the little extra. It's incredibly luscious!! I will have to hoard some though. WHY? No clue. LOL!! Hugs!
