I have decided to start with my Good News as I am really happy. Ladies and Gentlemen..If you would care to look to your left you will see a new badge I have aquired!! I was 3rd in Sarah Hurley's Challenge with my Spookay Card. There was 59 Entrants so I am over the moon. :)
Ok now I have calmed down from being a giddy goose (My Mum used to call me that when I was little) here is this weeks DT card!!
The theme was a RECIPE of the follwing...You can only choose one of each.
1-Turquoise and Pink, Turquoise and Purple or Turquoise and Grey.
2-Flowers, Feathers or Ribbon.
3-Sentiment or Charm.
4-Gems, Beads or Glitter.
I know what you are thinking...I will choose the pink and glitter with ribbon and swirls. Ahh no dear reader you'd be wrong! Only in certain instances tho as here is what I chose:
Turquoise and Pink (obvious?), Flowers, a Sentiment and Gems.
Any of that a surprise? I actually coloured in many digi stamps then came across this one and knew I had to use it. It is from Tricia Moore-Little Scraps of Heaven plus it was FREE!! With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month I thought I would highlight this in my card. Having an Uncle die last year of Cancer it is very important to me.
So here is my card:
The digi stamp from Tricia Moore. Coloured wity my Promarkers but mostly my Aqua Markers this time.
Papers are from a Kanban Cd.
Big turquoise flower is from a Polkadoodles Cd. (I know I use these alot but they are good cds) called All About and Everywhere.
The pink flowers I used a punch. Cut into it and shaped the paper to represent flowers.
The gems and the pearl are from my stash. (I class the pearl as a gem)
The Sentiment I made myself.
That's it! Thanks For looking and see you next week :)
Much Love daisylou xxx

I'm having a fight with Blogger at the moment. I posted this on the glittergeeks blog 3x and never went through. I posted this on here and has vanished too!! So as not to disappoint here it is again :)
The theme, as in the title is Two's Company and is outlined as, 2 of something...2 of anything on your work. The Sponsor is Willow Designs.
I decided to use the Sprinkles of Kraft CD. Nikky Hall's (polkadoodles.)CD which has a few of Sharon's Willowdesign images on.
My 2's are: 2 Trees, 2 Birds, 2 Birdhouses, 2 flowers in Birds beak....I even used 2 backing papers from the same CD!! The images I used the black and white Digi stamps and I coloured using my fav Flex and ProMarkers from Letraset
The ribbon is from Cosmo Cricket. Crystals from Swarovski....think thats everything!
I have had a horrid week with my Father in hospital with an infection following his surgery and I have woken up this morning full of cold. Will see how I go on as might have to rest all week = No crafting :(
Having ME means I'm susceptible to germs...drives me insane.
Am having a cup of Hot Ribena as I type so hopefully that will fix me.
Till Next time...daisylou xxx

Todays card I am entering into http://sarahhurleychallenges.blogspot.com Hope she and you like it as the winner gets some Derwent Pencils!! :)
For this card I used Sarah Hurley's own Vampire Girl Free Digi (so cute) .
The coffin I constructed myself with just black Bazill card. The orange inside was same card in orange, put through Cuttlebug using an embossing folder, then aged using a Memento ink pad.
The backing paper, glitter papers, ribbon and stamps are from my never ending stash.
The rosette is made from Tim Holtz Idea-ology grunge range and I covered it with crystals.
The "Boo" I hand cut from glitter paper and made the eye and spider from same glitter paper as backing paper.
I made the Vampire Girl have blood dripping from her mouth to add to the Vampire effect with a glue pen and Debbi Moore glitters.
Thanks for looking!
Bye for now I'm off to watch the glitter and glitz of Strictly Come Dancing...Love it!!

I have had this card for over a month but didn't want to post it as the recipient hadn't received it...we were meeting up but with my rubbish health it has taken till this weekend.
The lady who received this is very talented in sewing..and making Bailey's Cheesecake! She is addicted to it and I found out why...it is delish! Yes that much I had two pieces :D
Ok back to the card!!-( I know You could stare at that cheesecake all day...me too)
I used Lost and Found Papers and stamps from My Minds Eye.One of my favs .....they do lovely things with pink (my fav colour..if you didn't realise lol)
I stamped the tailors dummy and then covered it in glitter using micro fine glitter.
The flower and swirl I used he Master of Craft~ Mr Tim Holtz's dies through my Cuttlebug. Never ending ribbon is a Martha Stewart punch. Buttons, swarovski crystals (yes they are the real thing~only the best for my cards teehee!) and ribbon from stash.
I had best go...I have to visit my Father who is hospital after an operation. He is doing extremely well and hopefully out tomorrow.
Miss Scarlett and Molly are sleeping, so its nice and peaceful for a change. Could do with a nap myself to be honest...might have 10 mins..
Bye for now and Thanks for reading. Hope I've not made you sleepy too :)

I have finished my first DT card for www.glittergeeks.blogspot.com
The theme was....Flower Power. Sponsored by Joanna Sheen.
With Joanna being the Queen of House Mouse. I decided I had better to sort through my stamps. I found this little chap. Think he fits the cause well.
PolkaDoodles backing papers- From Paper Boutique Vol1 CD
I made the flowers with Marianne dies and used a polka dot Candi for the centres.
The House Mouse stamp.. I have had over 10 years! he is coloured with my favourite-Promarkers :)
The scalloped frames are from the new Sizzix Framelit range. Work great with my Cuttlebug.
The ribbon and pearls are just what I had already in my stash.
One down, so many to go!! :)
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
Take Care of yourselves!

Sorry I have been AWOL for so long. I have been quite ill with an ear infection which left me completely deaf for nearly 3 weeks. I was allergic to the given meds and had to go to hospital to the ENT consultant..basically it was a nightmare!
On top of me being ill, Miss Scarlett has had a tummy bug so she has been to the vets for injections and medications too.
Anyway that's the bad news out of the way...I have some brilliant news! The Glitter Geeks have invited me to become a member of their Design Team!! :) I will be adding my work when I can. ... Steph has been wonderful with understanding all my health issues and contributing issues. They are a lovely bunch of girlies and feel honoured to be a part of it all.
I haven't been able to craft so I have been watching Barbara Gray's new DvD. Taken many tips and hoping to make Clarity cards for my Christmas cards this year...Not as easy as it looks I can tell you!
Going to take ALOT of practise before I can make my work into cards.
Ok, as I haven't got any new cards I thought I would show you all some cards and 'just colouring in' I did a few months before I started this blog. *be warned there might be a few pics!*
