SPRING MEANS DAFFODILS!!!

Hello there my wonderful friends and blog followers - huuuuuge welcome to my new follower as well - I hope you know that you are letting yourself in for a load of Susie type waffling!  

Anyway .... Lady Anne has a new Challenge (as from 1 April) there will be a different theme each month, this time it is a sketch, our sponsors are Daisy Doodles and the prize is two of their images.  I am now a DT member on this challenge as well and I would love to see your cards over there.

This is my first card for this NEW Challenge -



I coloured the daffodils with an 'orange' trumpet - yup I have used orange again - but I can see some of them from my kitchen window and they are so bloomin' cheerful.  The squirrels sit amongst them chewin' their nuts (whoa there! they have their monkey nuts providing they leave my bulbs alone!)  this seems to work, although they do bury the darn things in between the bulbs.
 
This is the sketch we worked to
 
 
Ingredients
 
6 1/2 x 6 1/2" card blank
First Edition papers - Bird Song
DCWV papers - Glitter stack
White doily - free with magazine
Daffodils from stash
Strips of card from snippets box!!
Digi Images - Daisy Doodles
Promarkers
Craftwork Cards - Card Candy
 
This little card only took me a day to sort out - which, as you know, is super quick for me!  I hope you like it and also manage to get some time to enter the new Challenge here http://www.ladyanneschallenges.com/14/post/2013/03/our-first-challenge.html
 
Thank you for visiting my blog and checking out my cards, I love reading any comments you may leave (nothing rude of course)!  Oh and whilst I am here I have a Guest DT spot over on Christmas Cards All Year Round coming up on 15th April.  I love an excuse to make a Chrimbo card!
 
Big hugs to you all
 
SUE

  13. Hi Sue,
    my wonderful waffling blogging mate. I love this card as I really love Daffs being as I was born in Wales. I just love the way they wave to you as you go past. Have you ever noticed this.
    Even if there is no wind their heads seem to dance and wave. I really love Spring if we are ever going to get one this year that is.
    As I said your card is fabulous love your colouring of the daffs so superb as it always is. Great interpretation of the sketch. Who I seem to have swallowed a dictionary for breakfast. lol.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
