Daisy Summer

A card that epitomises summer to me......though ours seems to have gone AWOL.....making daisy chains..........I remember not only doing this with my kids when they were little..........but making them with my own mum when I was a child.....and we always put them in our hair.....such a lovely tradition.
So it's quite apt that this stamp is called 'Daisy'........coloured with Copics......all the papers are from a K & Co pad [such gorgeous colours]......PM gems in her hair.......with a mixture of flowers.
There's a few 'summer' challenges about this week.....let's hope they encourage the sun to re-appear in the UK!!
Stamp Something......Spoonful of Sugar.....Simply Doodles and Quirky Crafts all want 'summer or sun'......Totally Gorjuss want 'sugar and spice'.......and Crazy4Challenges want 'paper flowers'.  
Used the lovely sketch on Sketch Saturday
And today being Fathers Day......we're having a big family roast dinner......so with the help of DD2......need to finish making that.

Such lovely cards happening on your blog this week! I love the Daisy one best. She looks so dreamy and reminds me of my little gt.niece.

By the way, have you read your e-mails? I would if I were you... :-)

The Small One and I made a Daisy Chain yesterday, very quickly before the grass was cut!

Hope your Fathers day was a good one.

Still very much in awe over all the beautiful cards you make! Hoping I learn something useful in the upcoming JS class so I can get into card-making!

What a sweet stamp this is and I love the purple on your card.. Yes.. those were the days when we were so carefree. I didn't do daisy chains but picked up the petals of the flower saying love you, love you not, love you, love you not... xx
