*Daisies Make Me Happy*

I am a big fan of daisies. I just love them. They are beautiful flowers (especially Gerbers), and they are fun to play with in your crafting.

In fact, I love them so much that when I am brave enough to get a tattoo, it will be (I hope) a tattoo of a gerber daisy photo my niece took.

I think that the photo to the left would make a beautiful tattoo. I can't believe my niece took this photo.... I think it was taken in her bathroom of all places! She takes some of the most amazing photos I've ever seen... love ya Rachie!

So, my card today is a daisy card... more of a funky daisy than this photo, but a daisy all the same.

This card is very plain and simple, but I love it. I started with a white card and then found a piece of patterned paper that happens to be double-sided. I cut a wider strip to put on the card and a thinner strip to make the contrast down the card. I then stamped happiness in Basic Black Classic ink on white cardstock and cut the corners with my small corner rounder. I cut a larger piece of the patterned paper and flipped it to the pink side, rounded the corners and attached it to the white piece. I put the gold daisy brad in the right corner of the little piece and attached it to the card.

I then resisted every urge to put something in the large white space... and am glad that I did!

And as a side note, I'd like to thank the paisley lovers for telling me that my last card wasn't totally out there LOL!

Thanks for stopping by....

Love the photo!! Tell your Niece she needs her own Photo blog!! If you have more photos like this, please share them!!

Love the card! Is it just patterned paper, or did you add some punches to it. It looks very cool.
