basket full of daisies....

There are so many things I just love about summer...the weather, fresh strawberries, trips to the beach, spending lots of time with the kids, oh heck my list could go on forever! Another is going for walks down our country road and on the side are the patches of wild daisies that come up every year that we pick and then place in a vase to put on the kitchen table! So for my card today this is from the stamp set Vintage Picnic that I have used MANY times. I stamped my image on to Kraft cardstock...then coloured in the image with a white gel pen...I thought that was the easiest way to get that white stark look of a freshly picked Daisy!

Very simple I must say...but cute! What happened to lazy hazy days of summer...I am going crazy with lots to do! Anyone else... busy busy! Once the kids finish up school it will settle down I am sure! Well, have a wonderful day and thank-you so much for the visit!

  2. Love it Christine,
    I like the kraft even though I have not used it much, it looks great, and I am always worried I won't be able to colour on it, but the white pen is genius.

  4. I LOVE the lazy hazy days of summer but mine have been crazy too.. This is a beautiful card.. I always love your write ups because it lets us know a little bit about you too.. Sounds like we like the same things.. It is so hot here that it is difficult to be outside until dusk..
    Your coloring on craft is gorgeous... I have got to try that..all that gingham goodness is right down my alley.. Great job Christine..
