Hello Weekend & Exciting News

It's the end of another busy week, and I'm glad the weekend is finally here.  I'm planning to do some shopping, meet up with friends and make some cards!  What about you?  I hope you get to do all that you enjoy this weekend!

Now for some news... I've been invited to join the Daisy Doodles Design Team!  It's exciting because I've never been on a DT and so I can't wait to join the fun.  Daisy Doodles is owned by Julie Ball and she has some amazing digital stamps!  I love how easy it is to achieve great results with digital stamps.  You can resize the image to fit your project, print on patterned paper for paper piecing technique, colour in the images if you love colouring like I do, and more.  There's lots of fun at the Daisy Doodles' challenge blog with prizes to win, and check out the store as well.

When Jo, the Daisy Doodles DT Coordinator, asked for a photo of me for her post, I gave this pic:

I was on a boat in Halong Bay (translated as "Decending Dragon Bay"), a UNESCO World Heritage site in Vietnam.  It's a beautiful bay a little south-east of Hanoi, with beautiful limestone formations and calm waters. The weather was a little cloudy and foggy but it was still lovely, and we spent the night on the boat. It was one of the most beautiful places I've visited in Vietnam.

I'd love to share a card with Daisy Doodles' digi stamp.  There's a current challenge on the blog in conjunction with Memorial Day in the US.  Here's my card:

The boat image was coloured with copic markers and I added a little clear glitter where the water is.  The card measures 4.25x4.25".  

I hope you'll have a safe weekend, and have fun!

Stamp : Daisy Doodles Summer Fun, GKD Tropical Flowers (sentiment)
Paper : Red cardstock , GKD PLC Ocean Mist
Ink : Copic markers
