Eskimo Kisses - Cathy

Back with one of the very first ADFD images I colored while taking an online coloring class with Michelle Houghton in 2012.  It's called Eskimo Kisses.  I remember feeling I was so out of my depth with this complex, beautiful image.   I still love to use it for "new mother" cards.

There's a new freebie in the ADFD Shop - Seven Daughters.  I downloaded it today and am planning to color it up for next week!  I hope you will try your hand at it, too!
Happy creating!

Miss Clair Clown - Jen

Hi there!  I’m Jen and today it’s my turn to showcase one of the gorgeous images in the A Day for Daisies store, Miss Clair Clown. 

 Miss Clair Clown
Isn’t this little sweetie the cutest, even for those that are afraid of clowns!  I coloured her using alcohol makers and a white gel pen and placed her right where she belongs – right in front of a circus tent!

If you haven't joined us over at the A Day for Daisies Community on Facebook , please consider this your personal invitation - just click here.

Have a crafty day!

The Green Lady | Zubaida Momi

Hello friends, Zubaida here!

Back again with another post, always great to work with images from 'A Day For Daisies'. They are so lovely to color and what a great variety they have. This time I chose to use ‘The Green Lady’ for my card. This oriental beauty looks great and makes my card so special. I really enjoyed coloring her.

I have used copics and pencil colors on the image and it worked great. The card is also covered in handmade flowers on one side and embellished with ribbons and doily on the other.
I used patterned paper for the background to match with the image.

Thanks ADFD for giving me the opportunity to share with you today!

Hope you guys like it!

Zuba :)

A Lap Full of Kittens by Alison Heikkila

Hello! Alison here, and today I am sharing a card that I made for my mom. She's going through some things right now in her life, so I wanted to make her a card to cheer her up. She has a lot of cats, so I knew that this was the perfect image for her!
The image is called Lap Full of Kittens, and it is just too cute. I colored the cats to match a few of the cats my mom has. You can get all of the details for my card over on my blog HERE. And you can pick up Lap Full of Kittens for yourself in the A Day for Daisies Shop. Have an inspiring day!

Hello to all the A Day for Daisies lovers, both old and new.  Today's card features an astoundingly beautiful image called "Spring Flower Hair" from one of my favourite categories in the store, Beauties.

Spring Flower Hair 

I used alcohol markers and a white gel pen to colour this lovely, and a pink cardstock mat.

Pink and orange polka dot ribbons are the embellishment, and a metal charm with the words 'Live, Laugh, Love' - certainly a perfect recipe for happiness, I think!

love always
