Where have the images gone?

It's time for another Cute Daisy May and Squigglefly challenge.
This week on Cute Daisy May the challenge is called "The Word", the main part of your card has to be words not an image! And would you believe it, over at Squigglefly Kim has asked us to make a card with no image just a sentiment!!!
Well I managed the Daisy May one because I was allowed an image, I just wasn't allowed it to be the main part of my card, but the Squigglfly one OMG I had no idea what to do for that one! I am so used to using cute images that I didn't know what to do without them lol. But I know you crafty lot will come up with something fantastic :)
So here's my card for Cute Daisy May. I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday

All the papers I have used on the one are from a magazine! I don't use papers out of magazines except from Creative Cardmaking, they are always lovely and thick not like the magazine paper you usualy get a freebies. I only really buy this mag for the papers because they give you loads of them in each issue.
The image is of course one of Linnie's Cute Daisy May fairies, which by the way she has new sheets again with fairies on, you have to check them out. The lovely verse was a RAK I got from my good friendLisa(Alyssa's cabin) and I thought it went perfect with oneof the CDM faries.
All the flowers are Primas available at Aries Crafts and everything else from my stash.

Now here's my card for Squigglefly.
The sentiment I used is the only Squigglefly one I have and it actually came with one of their images. I know this is not one of the best cards I have made and to be honest I really didn't want to show it but I had already sent it to Kim so here it is.
I am having a real hard time making cards just now, so not having an image really threw me.
The papers again are from the same magazine. All the stickers are from a bubble a bilities pack from Aries Crafts and the flowers are also from Aries Crafts. I drew some faux stitching around the card and the sentiment just because it looked so plain and went over the writing with a glue pen and added some blue glitter.
Well I hope you can coem up with something better that this lol.
I'm off now to get my DT card for the Little Yellow Comapny done.

Both of your cards are wonderful. It is hard to not use an image, but I think you pulled it off great! I really like your little bubble letters spelling out friend.
