Friday Sketchers 114 and Papertake Weekly

Feeling strange after not crafting for a few days.  Everything I tried with this card, just didn't seem right.  I felt I needed to add a little more to the sketch.  After sorting and tidying my craft supplies, I realised I was about to run out of my herma glue, so this card is made with double sided tape and I don't think I will use it again for this, as I really need to lift and reposition a few times, before I am happy with it.  Hopefully, my glue will be here tomorrow. I was going to just make this card clean and simple with cardstock only but I didn't like it, so added patterned paper to the layer across the middle, then decided to add paper again between my circles.  Then decided to add little strips top and bottom to bring the card together.  These weren't in the sketch, so I hope it is ok to add these.  When I took the photograph of the card to put on the computer, I realised I hadn't added the stickles to the punched flowers.  When I did this, I then saw I hadn't added stickles to the flowers in her hair and hadn't finished colouring the grass, after I had changed it to a circle shape.   Normally I lift out all the supplies I need before I start but I was busy doing other things as well as this card and kept going back to it, so it was taking me longer and I wasn't really concentrating the way I should have been.  Anyway I got it finished in the end.
I am entering my card into Friday Sketchers 114 and Papertake Weekly. Their theme was something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.  You didn't have to use all of these if you didn't want to. My image was one of the first stamps I purchased when I started cardmaking - so something old.  The happy birthday stamp was free with a magazine and I hadn't inked it up - so something new. I have nothing borrowed on my card. I used the blue cardstock  for something blue.  Hope this fits the theme ok.

Cardstock - Die Cuts with a View and Doodlebug
Patterned Paper - My Minds Eye
Image - Sugar Nellie
Ice Stickles
Coloured with distress inks
Sentiment stamp - free with magazine
Crafts too - flower punch
Woodware - Tag punch
Ribbon from stash

I have noticed that my posts are not coming up on followers blogs or dashboards.  I am sorry about this and hopefully it has been sorted out.
Thanks for popping by and hope your are having a nice day.

Little Miss Daisy is so sweet! You picked perfect papers to go with her! She is coloured just beautifully! LOVE your card!!!!

Daisy will always be one of my favourite stamps and you've done a great job of colouring her here. Patterned paper looks good and another great freebie stamp.
Your blogger updates seem to be working fine now.
