Daphne and Daffodils....WINNERS!!!...SWEET STUFF!!

Happy Day to everyone!! Gosh I am so in hopes that things are going well for each of you and that this new month brings much "good stuff" to each of us! Over the past three weeks, we have had severe wind, rain, and hail storms...and as luck would have it, the roof of my own house was so destroyed that I have had to get a complete new roof....And if that was not bad enough, the roof on my cottage crafting house was also destroyed and the torrential rains came to the inside of the house which means new drywall and new ceilings throughout the house...sigh...And that is not even mentioning the papers and soft goods that were destroyed. I know...I know, I had plenty BUT just going through and seeing what was destroyed is a real pain...if you know what I mean....argh!!!!!!! But enough of that...let's move on to happier things right now!!!!!!!!


For my card today I used the absolutely precious Wee Stamps image, Daphne, designed by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps. Isn't that little darling the sweetest thing, bringing spring/summer joy with her daffodil! She was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding touches of Prisma Glitter for her wings and Wink of Stella to the daffodil. The base and double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics paper pad. For the horizontal I used some Natural Cotton Lace from Wild Orchid Crafts topped with PTI satin lace tied into a double flat bow. The sentiment is from the NEW Life's Moments sentiment set designed by Simonne Clay of SC Designs for Whimsy Stamps. The sentiment was cut out using the new and gorgeous NEW Fancy Label Die. The card was finished with some WOC Self-Adhesive Pearls,  Daffodils, Mulberry Leaves, and Decorative Metal Corner. I hope you will let me know what you think of my creation!!
