Cut Daisy May and Squigglefly DT cards

Well it is pouring of rain here this morning, so much for the nice Summer weather we were supposed to get!
Suppose that means more crafty time for me though, so it's all good. Except having to walk 3 trips to school in the pouring rain, that's not so good.
Cute Daisy May has a fab prize this week donated by Jill at the Hobby House, loads and I do mean loads of luch K&Co papers! You don't even have to follow a skecth or a theme, use certain colours.....nothing, just make it as you like it, easy as that. We would love to see you using the Cute Daisy May downloads but if you don't have any you can still join in and use whatever you have, digi's or rubber stamps it don't matter, we just want you to join us and have some fun :)
Here's my card for this weeks challenge, although it's not really a challenge now is it lol.

I have used Daisy having a tea party with her toys, isn't she just the cutest? and Linnie has been really busy doodling and has loads of new sheets, not just Daisy's but Fairies and animals too. You gotta check them out.
All the papers I have used on this one are from K&Co and I used my Fiskars border punch to make the borders. Flowers are a mix of punched and ones from my stash and pearls are Kanban, everything else from my stash.

Now I did say I had a Squigglefly card to show you , but I kinds lied because it's not a card this time. Rhonda has set the challenge this week to make an ATC.
I have never ever made an ATC before so had no idea where I was going with this , but I just bought a lovely Angel/Bride image from Squigglefly by Teresa Ward and knew I had to use it. So this is what I came up with.

I know it really doesn't look ATC size here but I made the pic big so you could see the gorgeous Angel. Teresa has done a fab job with this one. You can use her as a bride or add the seperate wings and make her into an angel, very versatile I thought lol. Well done Teresa!!! :)
Right back to the ickle card thing, I stamped a background onto lilac shimmery paper with my Inkadinkado set then inked the edges in a lighter colour. Coloured the angel in with my copics added some stickles to give her wings some sparkle, stuck the wings on with 1mm foam pads and stuck her on with 2mm ones so she was raised up a bit from the wings. A few bits of ribbon to finish because I couldn't do no embelishments now could I? and job done.
Think I might like these ATC things they are so quick to make, might make some into cards...mmm. Anyway now it's your turn, make an ATC with a Squigglefly image and link it to the challenge blog so we can see what you have made. Squigglefly have just released some really nice images and there is a total mix, something for everyone. Remember the Squigglefly blog hop kicks off this Wednesday and I will have a card to show you then with one of their new cute images.

That's it from me, have to get the kids to school. Hope you can join in with ther challenegs.

Hugs Lora

Lora, I love that little Daisy may card. The image is precious and I really like the charm!
You did a fab job for your first ATC! I've never made an ATC before either, but they're really just like little cards. I love the versatility of the angel/bride too!

Hi Lora I have seen this card in the DT selection on the challenge blog and thought then how beautiful it was but I just had to tell you in person. I love the colours and backing papers and that image is just gorgeous.
