Daisy Lane Makes Friends with The Sisterhood of Crafters

Daisy Lane handmade friend card front view.

It’s time for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters.  This one was chosen by our design team host Debbie and is all about “Friends” and “Friendship”.  For my design card, I selected Daisy Lane, a great floral stamp set by Stampin’ Up!.  It has 5 floral images and 4 sentiments that are wonderful for the times that you want to give a friend/relative a “just because” type of card.  The challenge starts today and we do ask that you include either the word “friend” or “friendship” in your submission to our photo gallery!  Not too hard, huh?

  • Stamp Set:  Daisy Lane
  • Papers:  Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Pretty Peacock, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake and Purple Posy cardstock; Vellum; Come to Gather Designer Series Paper; Pear Pizzazz Subtle Designer Series Paper

Additional Pictures

 

I also have another card to share with you based on the same theme.  This one is self-explanatory and difficult to talk about…

I apologize for the poor picture quality of the card… just could not obtain a good color likeness!  The last four months have been difficult on a personal level in that both of my furbabies went to the Rainbow Bridge.  Annie on May 31st; Libby just last week on September 19th.

 

They were my joy and will always be in my heart.  Truly best friends in every aspect!  Some time soon I will be updating my “Story” page with a gallery of some favorite pictures of both.

I hope to see you in our gallery at The Sisterhood of Crafters this challenge.  Have fun stamping,

Katy

    Oh, Katy, first your card is stunning! Your attention to details is always such an inspiration for me. Love them all on this one, for sure. Then, to see those beautiful furbabies sent me into the ugly cry! You know how much I loved both of them!! I know a piece of your heart is missing now but honestly they both had the best lives with you! Hugs and prayers, Real Sis!! <3

    Katy, this card is stunning! I love the color combinations – such a surprise how well they go together! And daisies… Mom’s favorite flower. Love this card almost as much as I love your babies. The second picture of Libby made me laugh out loud – she’s smirking just like her twin does! What two beautiful little girls they were and what wonderful memories you have. Best consolation is that you know they are now playing together under shadow of the rainbow bridge while waiting for you. Super hugs for you and Bill! Love ya, Sis!
