Punched Gerber Daisy

Supplies Used: Cuttlebug folders, punches, SU black checked ribbon, SU Fire and Ice rhinestone brad, SU small and large oval punches, black and white CS. Sentiment is unmounted - unknown.
I spent most of the day at a local Rubberstamp Show (Wooo Hooo) on Saturday and had the best time! Not only did I find way too many goodies to bring home, but it was my delight and pleasure to meet two SCSers -- Joan Ervin and Bev (TexasGrammy) -- there, in person! It's so fun to meet up after being virtual pals for so long! I saw Joan in the crowd and knew it was her before she even introduced herself, what fun!! My only regret is that my camera battery died on me so I have no pictures!! Whaaaa!!! But Bev got a few and I hope to see those posted over on Joan's blog. Both gals are so sweet and great to hang out with!! As a bonus, Joan's husband George even drove us around to have lunch down the street at Le Madelines. Thanks George!! While at the stamp show, I just happened to pick up some new flower punches so I was very excited to hang out at today's Featured Stamper, JayDeKay's gallery. She has a talent for crafting gorgeous flowers with die cuts and such!! So boy, did I get inspiration from her!! I chose this card from her gallery and pretty much cased it straight out. All the punches came from "Stamping Fools" at www.stampingfools.com. I used the small and med. daisy punches that they carry and a large fern punch. The larger outer petals of the daisy were die cut from a Sizzix Sizlet die. I added another panel of texture and used a sentiment instead of the little bee she used. Hope you enjoy! Hugs, Anne

Hi, Anne....sure was great to meet you in person yesterday!!! What a treat to finally meet after being cyber friends for so long!!! Bev left her camera in my car so we won't have pics of the three of us till I mail it back. I love the card you made with your new punches...remember what we said about regretting the things we didn't buy...well...I regret not getting some of those punches!!! Well, gf, hope to see you the next time I talk DH into a trip. So when is the next stamp show???
