Rock On!

This is a wonderful Friday for me, as it is the beginning of a more laid back week for our family!  I hope you find a similar peace in your life this weekend!

I have had the pleasure of using another image of these retro horse toys in the February Club Kit from A Day for Daisies.

This week I used Stick Horse Green:
I even used green in coloring him (lol)!  I loved imaging this guy being rescued from an attic, being shined up and restored by a loving grandparent.  Then this sweet handmade toy was set out for a grandchild visit!  

I remember riding on my toy horse to the William Tell Overture with a plastic cowboy hat... such joy!

This week we have a challenge at the A Day for Daisies Blog: Use Wood!

There are more beautiful projects these new images and wood accents on the blogs of my teammates:

I sure hope you can join us for this new challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you are inspire to make something today!

Enjoy the Ride!

Happy Friday!
This is the first Friday of the month so A Day for Daisies has a great new release for the Club Kit!  They are beautiful retro "stick horses"!  If you are unfamiliar with the Club Kit, I encourage you to follow the link and check it out!  Not a big commitment, just a really frugal way to purchase A Day for Daisies images.

I have had the pleasure of using Stick Horse Yellow :
I got the inspiration for the color scheme from the ColourQ Challenge:


The image was colored with Copic Markers and the patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.
The alpha stamps were inked with Tim Holtz Distress inks.

Love is in the air...

Happy Friday!
It is the end of January... SO... it is time to make St. Valentine's Day plans and projects!!

We at the A Day for Daisies DT were able to choose a Valentine/Love themed image to show to you, today!

I chose Elephant in Love:
The top washi tape has red foil dots on it (photographed black).  I need to work on photographing shiny/metallic elements!! (any tips you can give would be GREAT!)

We also have a BEAUTIFUL inspiration board to help, too!


There are more beautiful projects featuring the our favorite Valentine/Love themed images on the blogs of my teammates:

Brown Paper Packages...

Tied up with strings,
These are a few of my favorite things!

That song was going though my head during the entire process of making this card.

Lately, I generally lean toward the Clean and Simple look, but today I decided to give the more embellished look (that I used to use often) a try.

The image is from A Day for Daisies, Christmas Shopping:

The image is named "Christmas Shopping" but, as you see, it can lend itself to other uses.

The image is colored with Copic markers.
The design was inspired by the folks a "the challenge":

Have a wonderful Friday!
