I am going to share something with you today that may surprise you, if you are one of my regular visitors. There is a digi stamp company that I absolutely adore. Seriously. And it’s so not what you would typically expect me to foam over. But I do. And I love everything they have. I need to expand my collection. Who is it? A Day For Daisies. Such sweet, simple line drawings…but something about each and every one of their images is magical. Something about them reminds me of my mom… Anyway, their latest challenge is “Shades of Blue.” I have had today’s image colored up for a couple of weeks. But I didn’t have time to use it. I knew that I need to get a card made for this challenge though. I hope you’re sitting down…watch me do something sweet… I love the way the lines are drawn…all of their images look like this. Not perfect…just a wee bit sketchy…and all very sweet. The kind of images that tug at your heartstrings. Yes, it’s still Alison. Am I scaring you yet? I colored this image with my watercolor markers and my Copics. And some very pretty glitter on the eggs. I wanted to really show that they chicks were under glass, so I streaked some blue watercolor marker at the edge of the globe (and even on the chicks a bit). I also mimicked the effect of glass by using some clear cabochons. My border was cut from a doily. Now, i may not have the most shades of blue as some of the other entrants, but I like my little card. It makes me happy. It makes me think of spring. And I am thrilled that I finally had a chance to play along with an A Day for Daisies challenge. Here’s the link to it. I’d like to remind you that you have until tonight to sign up for this month’s Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop. So please, swing on by HERE and sign up! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Alison? Alison? For real? hee hee This is just adorable and I LOVE the ADFD images, I joined their club a couple of months ago so I could stock up on some of them! LOL My favorites so far are the fairies/angels, the horses and unicorns, and the flowers. But I love them ALL. 🙂
