Day 28 of 31: A Day for Daisies

Greetings! Welcome to the 28th day of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. If you are someone that comes to my blog throughout the year, and not just in October, you will know that one of my absolute favorite digi stamp companies is A Day for Daisies. Every image is just magical to me, no matter the subject matter. I had made a piece for the 31 Days that I had posted on the 8th. You can see it HERE if you missed it. I kinda wish I held that piece over until know so that I could enter it into their newest challenge, which is Anything Halloween. But since I really wanted to play along, I just created a new piece.

I used Little Striped Dress for this card. But as you can see, I altered the once-plain balloons a bit. Made them fit the theme just a wee bit more. Who wouldn't love to have 'weenie balloons, I ask you?!

I colored the image with my alcohol markers. And I kept the card real simple. Didn't want to overdo this one. My sentiment is from Tiddly Inks.

I am totally nutty over Orange Peel Stickles lately. And I am not an orange gal. Perhaps it's just the spirit of the season? I don't know, but I wanna lick the stuff.

I hope you like my clean and simple little number. Please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Great card! Love how you did the layout and the coloring of the image. Very cute!

Super cute, Alison! Love the way you've altered the balloons and her fab green hair. Have to say those Stickles sure do look yummy! xxD

Very nicely done. The ghost and pumpkin balloons are brilliant.

If you held back every piece for a future challenge you would never be able to find your workspace. Instead you spread joy into the world.

Love the simplicity, splash of colors on main image and the little glitz that surrounds it all. Wonderful card.
