Hey everyone!  Back in town after a lovely wedding weekend away.  So wonderful to see so many family members and to see hubby’s nephew (my kids’ oldest cousin and first to get married).  We were actually back in town since late Sunday, but had to get kids ready to go back to school plus unpacking, etc.  Yesterday morning was a bit frantic because my refrigerator/freezer appeared to stop working which naturally threw me into a bit of a panic.  Thankfully, it was just an outlet/fixture gone bad and once I plugged it in to a different one, it worked fine.  PHEW!

So, before I get to our NEW CHALLENGE over at WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE, I want you to know that I will be drawing my BLOG CANDY today, so stay tuned…..

We have a NEW CHALLENGE over at WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE and this week we are looking for SPOTS & DOTS on your creations.  I went completely SPOT & DOT crazy on my card by including dots on my DPs, image, embossed frame and ribbonSmile

You have until Sunday, March 4 at noon EST to enter your creation.  Please remember to use your image from WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP or from DAISY and FRIENDS CD which you can purchase at JOANNA SHEEN'S SHOP.  Projects not using WHOOPSI DAISY images will NOT be considered for prize or Top 3.

My image this week comes from Sheet 177 which can be found at WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP.  All of the images on the sheet are FABULOUS – it was hard to choose, but I went with this sweet Daisy because of the polka dotted bows in her hair and back of dress.  I colored most of the image with Copics and Atyou Spicas for the flowers.  I added JudiKins glaze on the flowers to make them pop out a bit more.  I paper pieced her dress using paper from Heidi Grace DP.  I also used some Basic Grey DP and CS from Darice and Core-dinations.  Ribbon is from Michaels and flowers from Prima.  Image and backing cut with nesties, backing embossed with Sizzix folder.  Scallops done with MFT die.  Sentiment from Whimsy Stamps and cut with Verve die.  I sure hope you like it and will come play along!!

Additional challenges:
CRAFT YOUR PASSION – paper piecing
DAISY DOODLES – color your world (no black or brown)
PAPER PLAYTIME – pets plus sentiment
SQUIGGLEFLY – spring is in the air plus ribbon
CRAZY CHALLENGE – anything goes

Wonderful job, well done. I just love it.
