Turtles & Daisies & Sneak Peeks!

It's time for Clear Dollar Stamp sneak peeks again! Doesn't it seem like the months just fly by? We're already making cards for spring and summer. Ahhh.... makes me long for warm weather - or at least a robin or two!!

My first card is made with one of Shawne's adorable Patchpal characters... the Patchpal Turtle. Be sure to click on the picture so you can see his adorable little snail friend. Isn't it sweet? I colored the turtle with copics and added a little paper piecing to his shell and the body of the snail. Do you see what I mean about making me wish for sun? The image and those colors are just so bright and sunshiney!!

My second card uses a sweet set called Daisy Duo. Are there such things as purple daisies?? I guess there are now! :-) It was fun to pull out my frond punch and buttons to accent my little frame. Don't forget to use your treasures!!

There is *much* more to be seen, so be sure to visit the other designers' blogs. I'll see you back here tomorrow for Day 2!!

Hi Tricia! I've got to tell you...you Patchpal Turtle was my fav in the gallery this month! Your coloring is super and the layout is great, but I love, love, love the colors on this happy card! And is that a border punch on the bottom in green? If so, it is absolutely adorable! Love it!

The Daisy Duo card is just lovely in purple, and your punched fronds are perfect embellishing!
