Cookie and Coffee Fairy

Oh, that would be a dream, if a fairy would deliver cookies and coffee to me! *sigh*

Today's image from A Day for Daisies is "hot coco fairy":

The image was colored with Copic markers and embellished with papers and embellishments from My Mind's Eye, Pebbles Inc., and Heidi Swapp.
Want to see some more warm cups of wonderful??

Watercolor Blossom

We made it!  It is Friday!!

This has been a marathon week at our house... I am not sure how a short week ended up so loooong, but it did!

Friday is here and that means it is time for an A Day for Daisies card!!
Today I watercolored the image, Flower #1 (a digi from A Day for Daisies):


As inspiration I used the colors from ColourQ #257:
(note: the lighter blue backgroud is really more "bermuda bay-ish" 
in real life but, my camera just doesn't like that color)

This blossom is a part of the September Club at A Day for Daisies.  This week we (the design team) are playing just with the flowers!
There are some delightful cards on the design team's blogs:

Tiny Pixie!

Happy Friday!
It is a SUPER happy Friday at my house, as my baby girl turns 11, today!!

Also, A Day for Daisies, has a Showcase: Tiny Ones!
Today I have used Tiny Pixie Leaf:

She is colored with copic markers; the card base is an accident. I was trying one technique with two background stamps... not realizing that I had forgotten to clean one of the stamps. (All's well that ends well)


There is more tiny cuteness on the blogs of my fellow design team members:

Back to school

Happy Friday!
My kids are gearing up for going back to school.  

One starts on Monday, the other two start on the day after Labor Day.  I always have mixed emotions about returning to school.  Part of me looks forward to a more disciplined routine but a bigger part is going to miss having them around.  (Though the teenagers were not around that much this summer.)

Today I have a back to school themed card, using "Teacher's Pet" from A Day for Daisies:
(Note: I think this image is on sale this week ;) )

I also used a sketch from Deconstructed Sketches (#164):


There is more back-to-school fun on my teammates' blogs:
