Day For Daisies has you Add Some Script


I love the Day for Daisies images - they have a delicate beauty which is so wonderful! Paper painting one of these digital images is so much fun as there are so many small pieces with lots of corners and curved lines! For this card I used the beautiful image called "Mae's Present" - she is one of my very favorite. 

Those of you who visit my blog know how much I love paper piecing - the more intricate the better! An example of how 'in the zone' I get: When the card was completed I noticed that there was a very small piece missing! I didn't remember cutting it out so I knew that I had most likely threw this part of the image out with the scrap pieces. I carefully went through my scraps in the waste basket and I found it and cut it out! It was the small red hand of her beloved bunny doll! :<)

I have entered this card in the challenge at A Day For Daisies where the theme of the current challenge is "Add Some Script". Go to to see the awesome entries and Designer Team inspirations. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today! We still have heat and humidity here in this part of WI - some storms have provided the much needed rainfall but also the humid temps! Guess there is no satisfying me this summer! I really long for the fresh breezes of Spring and/or Fall.

Barbara Diane, this is just so special and beautiful. I love the feel of these images too. They're so old fashioned and look like little children look. Can't believe you found the scrap in the trash. Good going. I love the look of paper painting. Beautiful creation as always.

This is a very sweet image. Lots of paper piecing gives it great character. Lovely!
