Kind of, in a Pickle!

Or better, I was!
Oh yes, I did it again, 
waiting to the last, and I mean the absolute last minute,
to get a Birthday card done.
Saturday morning 9 o'clock, no card
and the party is at 2.
My husbands suggestion
"Just buy one"!
My answer "I CAN'T DO THAT"!!!
It just feels wrong to me to give a store bought 
card since I have been making my own!

Digging through my emergency stash,
nothing for a teenage girl:(
find a quick and easy layout,
thank you 'Take Ten" magazine,
find the right paper and colors,
oh, and some cute stamps!

One and a half hours later, not to bad!
I think this was my fastest card ever.
The girl is a "Hero Arts" stamp, 
background stamp from "Inkadinkado" and
the sentiment is a "Stampin'Up!" stamp.
One of my crocheted flowers atop a punched paper flower
and a sparkly brad for a little bling!
Well, I pulled this one off...
... to the next time...HiHi!
No to bad for a quick card,
what do you think?

Thanks for stopping in!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

It's a party!

"Grow your Blog!"

Hello everyone 
welcome to my humble blog!
I always wanted to start a blog, 
a place were I could share
all the little things I love to do, 
but never had the courage to do so.
In a way I was afraid that I could not find the right words to say
or my little creations just weren't pretty or good enough to share with anyone!
But one day in May of 2011 I just sat down,
got all my courage together
"My Paper Daisy" 
was born.
Yes, it was a labor of love, lots of pain
and a few not so nice words,
 to the first post actually happened.
I learned in leaps and bounds
(still do)
but the best of all,
 along the way,
I met a lot of wonderful creative people who
keep inspiring me in a wonderful way!

 This is were the magic happens!
I love this spot, sometimes I just sit there
looking out the window, DAYDREAMING!
 For right now I took over what used to be our study...
 ... yes, I know, I need to get organized!
I promise its on my to do list for the new year!
Also my blog started out to be mostly about
my love to stamping, card-making and
 ... lately I also started sharing my
 little addiction with fiber.
Mostly knitting and crocheting, you never can have enough yarn!
This is my newest project,
a new scarf!
And ever now and then there will be a post
about all the beauty that surounds me!

Well, enough about me,
I think I will go blog hopping now!
Thanks for stopping in and
giving me the opportunity to share a little of my
creative life with you!
A special thanks to
2 Bags Full
for hosting this wonderful event!

Love is in the Air!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
I can not believe we are already thinking about
"Valentines Day",
but it's right around the corner!
So what better thing to do on a rainy droopy weekend than
to create a pretty card.

Lettering, silhouette and large heart were cut from 
"Victorian Romance" Cricut cartridge .
Small doily heart was cut from "Close to my Heart" Cricut cartridge and
for the banner and flowers I used paper scraps I had laying
around in the stamp room.
I have to admit, I'm having a hart time thowring 
paper scraps away, so I'm always happy if I can use them 
in a project.

Also a few days ago I struck gold at work!
One of our patrons was cleaning house and
decided to donated their old books and magazines
to our Library.
Items we do not keep go into book sale, 
free item pin or sometimes just into recycling.
So you can imagine how happy I was when
this old "Sears, Roebuck Catalog"
was marked for discharge.
I was literally drooling and bouncing up and down at the same time!
This beauty was mine!
... the possibilities!
I think I will make some copes of the pages and
try my hands on image transfer!

Thanks for stopping in!
Hope you all have a great week!
