Little Striped Dress - Cathy


I'm back with a sweet, quick-to-color image called, Little Striped Dress.  She's fussy cut and popped out with dimensional dots.  I love all of the white and this CAS look!  More details on my blog.
Tanja created a card a few weeks back with the male version of this image called, Little Striped Shirt.

The whole DT will be back later this week with our November challenge.  Hope to see your entry!
Happy creating,
Cathy

Gentle Baby - Jen

Hi there to all the wonderful followers of the A Day for Daisies blog.  It's my turn to share with you my card with one of  the beautiful Christmas images in the store. 

I am always drawn to Nativity scenes on Christmas cards, and to this one in particular because of the tender, loving expression on Mary's face.  The image is aptly called Gentle Baby.


Copics were used to colour the image, and Stickles for the star.  The background is printed (digital) paper and I used some pearls and organza embellishments.

If you have not yet entered our October challenge on the blog, please remember that there only a few days left to enter!

Keep Creating!

First Flight - Cathy Preissing

Hi Everyone,
Back with the Halloween card I promised you.  I just love this image!  (I know, I say that about almost everyone of Tammy's images!!)  It's called First Flight.


The interesting thing about my card is as I was putting it together, adding other embellishments detracted from the image, so I ended up keeping it CAS.

Are you playing along with our Halloween Challenge?  Check out the link on the upper right side of the blog.  This month's winner will have a stint as a guest DT member.
Happy creating!
Cathy

Picking a Puppy - Jen Leeflang

Tammy has a wonderful way of drawing children and baby animals, and this gorgeous image called Picking a Puppy is a great example!  I love this image because it reminds me of my sons playing with a friend's puppies and how tender and loving they were whilst doing it.

The image is coloured using  alcohol markers  and merged with a lovely sentiment.  A simple blue cord wrap and a cute pawprint button were used as embellishments.

Please join us over at the A Day for Daisies Community on Facebook, and share your A Day for Daisies creations with us - we'd love to leave your some love there.

Keep Creative!

Hello Baby Giraffe - Cathy Preissing


Tammy's ability to capture the gorgeous eyes of a giraffe drew me in with her Hello Baby Giraffe. They are so peaceful and inquisitive!  I went a little playful with my Copics and made this giraffe pink.  The shading was fun to play with.

I hope you all will join our October Challenge.  I'll be back again this weekend with a Halloween card!
Happy creating!
