Knitting Daisy thanks so much

Hopefully Mr Postie has delivered this card to my friend by now - I took the picture a while back whilst I had my old pc and software so was able to tweak it, perhaps a little too bright though!  The stamped image is Daisy Knitting from Marianne's Don and Daisy collection, coloured with my Copics and finished with Spring Pansy Versamagic chalk ink around the edges.  The gingham paper is from my stash matted with lilac cardstock, and I've used various Marianne dies to create a little embellishment.  Everything is flat on this card so I could post it easily at the standard rate - my cards are getting more like that these days of tightening the crafty belt.

I am feeling rather down in the dumps at the moment with memories of last year, and to top it all my DH has decided not to come home this weekend.  As his work keeps him away a lot, I look forward to the weekends .. .. and as it's a bank holiday I had hoped we could have more time together .. .. for now I'm on automatic pilot looking after Mum and not in the mood for doing much else.


  1. Ohhhh, I love the colors. What an adorable card.

  6. Thinking of you too Annie - these times are never easy & I still have a hard February with the departure of both my parents in that month.
    I love your colours here & especially the way the bright wool is picked up by those tiny little flowers.
    Take care
    Much love

  7. Hi Annie, gorgeous card again. Love that sweet image and the colours are beautiful.

    Thinking of you as you remember that sad time. That's the trouble isn't it as you get older there are more sad times. I'm sure you also have lovely memories too.

    Take care,

  13. Hi Annie,

    Super card and that image is great, its good to see some of the older crafts being shown! I love my knitting during the evenings whilst watching tv in fact I dont think I can just watch tv anymore!

    Im into flat cards too but Im sure we arent alone!

    Well if youve got more time on your hands this weekend then maybe its extra time to craft or knit or both?! Its definitely the weather for it here, overcast and chilly!
