Mama Dreams - Jen L

My friend Tammy is only a few days away from giving birth to her baby girl, whom she and her hubby have decided to call Hayley.  I chose to showcase this image from the A Day for Daisies store, and it's aptly named "Mama Dreams"

My card has the corners punched, and a peach coloured cardstock mat.  The embellishments are a sentiment, popped up on foam blocks and a portion of the flowers on the image, resized, coloured and popped up on foam blocks.

Thanks for dropping by today!

Mother's Day Wish - Jen

The name of this cute image available in the store is Mother's Day Wish.
The reason I have chosen to showcase it here today is not because it's so very sweet (which it is!), but because it's one of Tammy's images that just cannot be defined by its label.  Look how beautifully this image works on a Christmas Card!

The image was colored using alcohol markers and a white gel pen, and matted onto gold backing paper.  I have no fancy embellishments, just a couple pf star sequins and gold beads.

Tammy's beautifully drawn images are so detailed in their simple lines, and sometimes a CAS card is just what is needed to showcase her talent.

Thanks for joining us at the A Day for Daisies blog today - have you remembered to enter our November Challenge?

The theme is

  Add Some Burlap (or Kraft)

 and you have just over a week left to enter.


Keep Creating!
