Daisies

Hello blogging friends,

From me a Mother’s Day card with some pretty daisies to share today. I am currently recovering from an eye operation, so I can call this card a “one healthy eye creation”. Hubby said everything is glued thoroughly and the papers are not crooked. I believe him and hope he has a “crafters’ eye”. I used the inspiration picture from the Shabby Tea Room Challenge this week to create my card. I had the pretty white daisies for ages in my stash and was delighted to see it fits the challenge theme so well. The teapot die cut is from Joy Crafts. This was such a fun card to make with its sunny yellow and summer green colours – hope you like it! Here is the inspiration picture:

Thank you so much for visiting today, I would love to know what you think of my card. I am sorry that I skipped visiting all of you the past week. Unfortunately the eye specialist reduced my computer time ’till my eye is fully recovered. Hope next week I will be fully operational in blog land again. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting,

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    One beautiful and stunning creation Amelia! No one would ever have guessed it was a one eye creation if you hadn’t told us. Hope you recover quickly sweetie. You aced the inspiration picture with this gorgeous card and all the little extras that make it so special. Tell hubby he did a great job making sure it was perfect for you with his “crafters eye”. Have a great weekend Amelia. Sending warm thoughts and hugs, Carol

    This is a wonderful card.. On one hand it is a typical Amelia card – on the other hand it is a more unusual colour combination. It is so fresh, this yellow and white – my most favourite card in the last weeks.
    Hope your eyes are really good soon.
    Take care,
    Nessie
