Pink Daisy

So sorry that I have been missing in action but Monday night I got sick and just today (Friday) feel pretty much normal again. I had a stomach flu which was just like I used to get way back in the day. I am glad with some meds I have it under control now. Hopefully, I lost a bit of weight so that there is a plus side to it. Hahaa!

Anyway since I feel better I have made a card with a pink daisy on it and the use of the written word in the background. This card will be entered in the Mod Squad Challenge-Use a book page or written word. My written word is an insert from our church bulletin. 




I used all Gina K. Designs products except for the inks which were a mix of several companies. GKD products used were: Elegant Oval die, Layered Daisies and Die set, and the Foliage stencil. Also all the cardstock was from Gina K. Designs. I put all the layers together and then finished the card by adding three light green rhinestones from my stash.

Thanks for the visit and I may not be blogging or creating cards quite as often for the rest of May. I need to get busy and do some cleaning. It takes me a long time as I have to rest so often so if I am missing that will be most likely the reason why. In the meantime, take care.

God bless, Verna

This is beautiful Verna, and I'm sorry you haven't been feeling too chipper. My blogging has been slacking of late too - there simply aren't enough hours in the day to do all that needs to be done! Stay well!

I'm sorry to hear you were sick but so glad you are better now. The pink daisy is so pretty and I like the script in the background. I have been missing because of cleaning and doing so many things that needed done and have been put off.

Heck of a way to lose weight, Verna! I'm 4 days late getting here so I hope you're still feeling better. I know what you mean about taking longer to do things now. Kudos for still managing to get it done at all! An absolutely lovely card with the pink flower and very creative background. The scripture and stenciled leaves look amazing and I love it a lot!
