"Daisies this Time"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of creativity.
Thank you for taking the time to pop in and leave a comment, I love to read them all.

How is the snow with you???  John and I popped into Dundee this morning and Oh! Wow! there was still plenty of snow on the way in.  Here in our wee village most of the snow has gone although there is still "Plenty" on the hills.  No snow in Dundee, being on the water it never really lies there.
We had another nice day even if we did not see the sun.

Our neighbour farmer was burning rubbish when we got back..................the house was full of that horrible burning smell..... Yuk!!!! I can still smell it!!!!!   We had left a couple of windows slightly open for some fresh air.  Glad I did not hang out any washing before I left.

Today`s card I made using SB Delicate Aster Dies, I have had them for ages and had never opened the packet.

Base card 5 x  7 pink card stock
A matt of Pale green card
Pink Gingham paper printed from a Rob Adams Cut.   I cut out an Oval Aperture with Classic Oval SB Die
I cut a smaller Oval from white card then made a Faux Nesstie by drawing round the out side of the same die onto dark green card and cut it out by hand.
Made the flowers using the gingham paper
Cut some Leaves in dark green using a Crealie Die
I cut slithers of pale green card to represent stalks on the flowers
A Bow of Organza ribbon from my Ribbon Box
A little gem in the centre of each flower and down the top right hand corner 

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate your visits

Just noticed one loop of my bow is caught on the flowers, typical you never notice these things till it is too late.
