Daydream

Brrrrr isn’t it freezing today, had to fight with a frosted up car this morning – me no likey!  So a summery card was the order!

It’s another of those patchwork/paper piecing cards only I cheated with this one and printed out a patchwork design from Nitwit Collections s Happy Go Lucky kit.  I’ve had lots of emails about this kit and to be honest I can’t see it in the store so not sure if it has now been discontinues?  I got it from the Revalued Nook a while back.  It’s one of my favourite kits too, I love the splash of black in it to liven things up.

The lace, seam binding, trellis rose and dragonfly are from Wild Orchid Crafts (not sure if the dragonflies are listed yet).  The stamp is Lili of the Valley Summer Daydream and the sentiment is from one of the Circular Sentiments sets.

  1. Hi Bev,
    OMG, so pretty. Love the sweet image and the beads on the dragonfly. Very clever. Keep warm. Yikes, I can't handle the cold here in Hawaii when the temperature dips to 60 degrees F. I'd never survive in the UK. LOL

  5. Pretty card Bev.

    It's cold here too and we have our work Christmas lunch today - don't think the party gear will be coming out, I'll be sticking with socks & jumpers - can't bear being cold.

  28. Hi Bev~

    I wish I could send you a photo of me, and have you draw and color it. I had long brown hair like this, but it never looked as beautiful as it does on this card. I love the way you colored her clothes...you are amazing at staying in the spaces. The O Copic can only do so much...the rest is skill, Dear. The paper is fabulous as is that special little dragonfly! I just love this card!

    He IS Able!
