Well, this is my second week as Mercy's November Muse and I'm having a ball.
I want November to last forever! Ha Ha
Here is this week's amazing sketch.
(Mercy's sketches are so pretty, they could almost make a card on their own)!

And here is my sample........

My card this week has one or two 'can't remembers' in it. I can't remember where I bought the DP. I can't remember where I bought 'Daisy'. BUT! I CAN remember I coloured her with Copics and the flowers I've had forever and are from a craft shop in Buxton (that sadly, has now closed down). The labels on the little jar says 'Scrap Pack, follow your imagination'. Hmmm. The sentiment is from a set called 'Flowers of Happiness' by There She Goes and stamped with Brilliance Coffee Bean ink. I filled the flower centers with Stickles 'Waterfall'. The base card is SU Bashful Blue. I even distressed the edges of the DP! WOW! Aren't I BRAVE!
So, I'm not doing too badly if I can still remember more than I forget, am I! Ha Ha!

Well I hope you liked my sample and that you will play along with us.

Happy Hi Viv! I can certainly relate to all the "don't remember's!" At least you remembered to stamp and post it! GREAT card, my friend! :)

Oh, Viv. This is stunning! Daisy is one of my favorite stamps, she is a Sugar Nellie! And you have colored her perfectly. That is a beautiful saying and I love your flower embellishments, perfect for that DP
