Daisy, Daisy...

Good Afternoon All!
I hope the weather is better where you are than it is here. Now I know it`s April and it`s supposed to rain in April, but I expect showers, not constant downpours. Still I suppose we do need it and maybe it`s just getting it all out of the way ready for a long hot summer. Yeah, right...
Anyway enough grumbling, I had a thoroughly enjoyable time last week in the playground when I joined in at Pixies crafty snippets, so much so that I`m joining in again. This time I`m taking a bat and ball and some Dolly Mixtures to share. Maybe that`ll lure Mrs A from the bushes where she was seen lurking last week.

These are a great way of using up even the smallest of snippets. The card base is A5 and I scored the pattern using a score board.
The daisies are punched from small bits of coloured paper that I insist on saving. I`ve doubled each flower to give it some dimension and added a middle using a spring loaded hole punch and some scraps of white card.
The sentiment is made from the strip of card you get left with when you make a 6x6 card from an A4 sheet.
The sentiment itself is by Layers of Color inside a frame by Waltzing Mouse cut out with a nestie labels 4 die.
Altogether a bit calmer than last weeks entry lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  6. Hi Lynne! Totally gorgeous cards, so fresh and such great use of snippets too. Thanks for the good explanation of how they're done as well, I love the quilted effect.

    Ha, Mrs A has some explaining to do I think. I just found some binoculars hidden in the bushes outside the playground........and we all know she was lurking there last week. The discarded carrot tops are also a huge clue!

    Hope all is well with Ruby.

    Di, xx

  7. These are beautiful, love those little flowers.....

  8. Did someone mention Dolly Mixtures! I'm coming out of the bushes right now. See you over by the potting shed.
    Would never have thought of using the score board to make the trellising. Superb idea. hugs Mrs A. Ouch!! That bush prickles and now I torn me skirt too. Just as well I got needle and thread with me this week.
