Happy Fourth Of July

I have several different projects to share today. First off I want to wish everyone here in the US a Happy 4th Of July. There is a big family party over at my Nieces today but I will be staying home with my Mom and George and My Pendelton. He really freeks at loud noises and since the idiots around here have already been setting of fireworks at 9:00 AM I don't really want to go off and leave him. I bought him a Kong Toy yesterday and he loves it.

So I have two cards using A Day For Daisies Images today. Every week Tammy comes up with the most amazing sets. Go check out the Store and then check ouut the group on Paper Craft Planet and see all the wonderful projects that all the talented fans of A Day for Dasies have to share.

For this first card I used the butterfly Friends image. I used some of my Favorite Papers by My Minds
Eye. The blue oval piece is done using an embossed butterfly image and then I sprayed it with some Tattered Angels Mist. So much fun.

 Here is a close up that shows the Liquid Pearls that I used around the edge of the image.
 I used the Sketch for the Challenge over at Fetch A Sketch.

I will also be entering this card in the following Challenges:
Bunny Zoes Crafts: Challenge 13 Fairies
Lexis Creations: A Bugs Life
Stamps -R-Us: There Was A Girl

Lady Bug Nymph
For the next card today I used the Lady Bug Nymph Image. I used an overlay by K & Co. to place ofer the image and then the flower is from a K & Co. flower punch out book and the background paper is a hand made piece I made using ink refills and the smooch technique.

And here is a close-up of the flower and image and overlay.

Have A Great Day.
 I will be entering this card in the following Challenges:
The Cheerful Stamp Pad: Favorite Background.
