A Day for Daisies - Vintage Hats

This week we are featuring Tammy's  previously released collection of five different Vintage School Girl Hats, which you can find in the ADFD Shop.  Mine is called Vintage School Girl Three.  The little flowers on her brim really caught my eye.  I love their shape.

Check out what the DT did with the other hats in the collection here.  There's one more week in our Add Some Lace challenge.  I hope you can play along!

Creative Knockouts #137 - Humorous Card

I was so excited to request this image, Baby Shoes Without Laces, from our sponsor Doodle Pantry that I forgot to consider the challenge theme when I made the card, so sadly, my card isn't humorous - but's it's cute right?!?  And isn't it a bit humorous that I whiffed on the challenge?  So there - a little humor!

Onto this darling sponsor image.  I love the ability to create real laces for these shoes.  It really makes the card precious.  I paper pieced part of the shoes rather than color this week. . . so many possibilities with this image!!
Check out the humor of my teamies here and come play along with us this week at Creative Knockouts!

Thanks to Mojo Monday for the sketch!

What A Character!

Captain Jack Sparrow is this week's (PIN)spirational Challenge - he's bigger than life!  The idea of a big character, the sentiment, and something about Jack's sitting position in the inspirational photo made me think of this Sandra Caldwell Minnie Mouse image I had on my desk (called Mickey Fan).  Sandra has loads of fun characters in her Etsy shop - I bet she could draw Jack Sparrow, too!  I know it's not a pirate - but aren't inspiration challenges supposed to tap into some creativity?!?

A Day for Daisies - April Club Kit

Take a big breath and gently exhale - Tammy's Club Kit images for April will take your breath away!  She's thinking ahead about the wedding season.  This image is called Vintage Bride's Day.  I am an occasional fan of the television show, "Say Yes To the Dress," which I tipped my hat to in my coloring of this blush-colored wedding dress.  Who even knew that was a color?!?  Take a peek at the rest of the DT creations on the A Day for Daisies Blog, here and then use one of these gorgeous images to play along with our Add Glitter challenge.  You still have another week!
