Daisies in a Vase

Hello everyone,
Welcome to new followers, Loli, Janny and Tracy, great to have you here.
I didn't manage to get the puddings done so will now have to wait until Wednesday. I forgot to soak the fruit overnight and spent the day washing and doing the dishes and putting the Christmas tree up!
So no Christmassy smells lingering in the air!
My hubby and I picked up our friends, Fran & Kim and took them to a local radio station. They have a shed out the back where every Monday night they have a live radio session called "Hill Billy Hooters" Anyone that wants to perform rocks up and they fit as many people they can within an hour. Not really country & western but in that vein. Lots of guitars, ukeleles, mandolins and mouth organs. Ballads and some original songs with a couple of other genres tossed into the mix. We took some folding chairs and sat down and within the first 10 mins it decided to rain - big sploshy drops. Luckily they stopped after about 5 minutes and it is a warm night so we dried off quickly.
So, just got home and made this quick card for:
Less is More - week 43 - Recipe - A Bit of Bling, has to be CAS style card.
Also would like to enter it into Make It Monday - #65 - Anything Goes.
My card base is SU Glossy White, I used SU Basic Grey to stamp the image "Daisy Vase" from Stampendous and also the sentiment from SU set "Happiest Birthday Wishes"
I coloured the image with gel pens and added bling to 3 of the flowers. Two amber ones for the centres of the flowers and one green for the bottom of another as it was facing the other way.
I've scanned the card with a bit of dark paper behind it so the white card can be defined in the scan. The flowers do look brighter IRL and I know the scan has washed them out quite a bit. I tried a photo but it came out too dark and fuzzy.
Thanks for stopping by and all the fab comments, much appreciated,
Take Care,

  9. Hi Sandy - I am sorry I'm not good about keeping up with all the sweet comments you leave, but wanted to try and do so today. As you know I don't get a lot of computer time due to Fibro, but I do appreciate everyone who follows me and stops by!

    I thank you for being one of those kind people and want to also wish you a wonderful Holiday Season. I thought for sure I was already a follower and was surprised to see I was not -- but I'm happy I have now fixed that, as well.

    It's been so nice to know you and to see you wonderful artistic skills. Even thought I don't post much, I still stop by and visit every one who leaves me comments!
