It's Raining Daisies! 46

It's Raining Daisies!

Hi Girls! I want to thank Kazan, Laura & all the girls on the DT for naming my Sympathy card to the Fab 5 on 2Sketches4You last week! I am soooo honored & thrilled to have had one of my creations make it :) Yeah! If you want inspiration or a sketch to get your Mojo jump started, I encourage you to visit 2Sketches4You :)

As I previously mentioned on my blog, my sister takes great care of my Westie babies when I travel. This is Gretchen (right) & Griffin (below) :)






To express my appreciation & gratitude, I made Tina this Thank You card & gift basket using the PTI Pack a Picnic Timeless Template to hold her gift from Maui. My sketch layout inspiration came from CPS124 & the color was inspired by this week's Splitcoast's Inspiration Challenge 188, IC188 where we had to select an item on the website Chasing Fireflies. I found the Daisy Rainboots to be very cute, happy & perfectly fitting for my project. I hope you like the set :) If you have a favorite PTI Timeless Template or any sort of gift basket / bag template, I'd love to hear about it! Be Sweet!

Paper: SU Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Whisper White

Hi Girls! Thank you for visiting Cupcake's & leaving me some words of happiness! I fell in love with these boots because it reminds me of days gone by when as a little girl, me & my sisters were run through fields of daisies with hopes of finding the right one as we plucked the petals saying "he loves me, he loves me not!" Sound familiar :) Hugs, Mona
