Navy Daisies?…

Here’s another post using the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and stamp set.  The sentiments in this stamp set are just the best and work for so many occasions…

How bright and cheery are those daisies?

and a peek inside which would also make a nice card front.  This sentiment is one of my all-time favorites.

This is a busy week here…Sweetums and I are traveling separately but meeting up with my son and his family in New York City this weekend to celebrate my g’daughter, Lyla’s 10th birthday!  The best part?…she knows nothing about it.  It’s all a big surprise for her.  Lots of things planned to do and see while we are there, but most important will be the memories we bring home.  I’ll report next Monday and maybe post a pic or two.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

today is one.

Stay inky…Be HaPpY!

  1. This is another beautiful card using that stamp set. I love those delicate navy flowers and the sweet sentiment. The little extra touches, like diecutting the scalloped layer and the stitched layer, really add so much depth. I think it is wonderful that you and your family are meeting in NYC to celebrate Lyla’s 10th birthday. What a great way to celebrate at 10 or any age. Those are memories everyone will have for a long time. It’s hard to do with so much to see but take some breaks with some deep breaths occasionally. I can’t wait to hear all about it and see any pictures you share. Love the “b-ism”. I think I must have had double caffeine this morning because my day has been non-stop until now.

    • Thanks so much HJ…I really do like this set of thinlets (Seasonal Layers). It has something for every season! We are finishing up last minute plans and packing for the weekend. Our flight is at 5:45 a.m. tomorrow! So we will be up before the chickens! We hope to take lots of pics and I will share a couple on my blog next week. We facetimed with Lyla last night and sang HB to her and told her our surprise would come Friday!…B!

    • Have a wonderful and safe trip. Can’t wait to see any photos you share with us next week. Take care.

  2. I’m just catching up on all your new cards. I haven’t been able to look for awhile. The new cards are all so lovely I couldn’t pick just one as my favorite. You have so much talent!

    • Glad you stopped by and were able to catch up…hope you found something to inspire you!…B!
