Mark's Finest Papers

I immediately went for the single daisy image when I first saw this set.  I found the most beautiful purple daisies when I was looking on line and did my best to replicate them here.  I have to say that I love that little lady perched on the leaf.  I love her so much that I colored and cut another one out to crawl up on my sentiment!  I don't know about you, but sweet little lady bugs seem to be the herald of spring around here.  They start to appear in most of my window sills (did I mention that I live in an old house?) every year as spring approaches.  My little girl just loves them.  Incidentally, she informed me just last week that lady bugs are beetles.  Kindergarten has been very informative for this Mommy!

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to stop by and see what Tangii has for you today.

So gorgeous, Toni! Love the colors you've chosen. Cute idea to make another ladybug to crawl along the sentiment.
Ladybugs and butterflies are about the only two flying things that I'm not afraid of when they get on me.
Yes, those kindergarten children are really smart. Listen and learn. :-)

Such a pretty card! I love the ladybug on your banner! Great idea.

MariLynn said...

So pretty. I love the purple and turquoise together. I used to like "lady bugs" until I met their cousins the Asian beetles. After being bit by several Asian beetles, I leave any bug with spots alone. I know the Asian beetles are a little oranger, but they still kinda look the same and I don't want to take the risk.

Like the Daisy. Banners are popular & works great with this. Especially like the Ladybug buttons. At first I did not know they were buttons.
