One Lily

Good morning followers, I can't believe how this week as past by so quickly.  It was only last week I was getting ready for Ryan's birthday and now another week has past by which I'll never get back again.

It's Wednesday which means it's another wonderful 

Congratulations to Lisa Lynn our winner from last week and to our 
Top 3 cards great work everyone.

This week we have another great sketch to show off those wonderful design papers.

Sketch #63

Here's my take on the sketch using this wonderful Lily image from 
A Day For Daisies our sponsor this week.  I've just realised that I used Lilies last week as well that was a vase of them.  

I'm dedicating my card this week to Lily my mother that past away 14 years ago a week before Ryan was born.  In those days she hated her name she thought it was so old fashioned and today so many little girls are being born and being named Lily it's such a pretty name, I so wish I had told my mum that when she was alive.

A sneak preview of the inside of my card.

Yes this week our sponsor is 

Tammy the owner of 
A Day For Daisies 
I alway get so excited when I see that she's our sponsor as I adore her wonderful images and there's just so many to choose from.

Kathie, your card is gorgeous and I think your Mom still knows how you feel now. This is a wonderful tribute card. Enjoy your week.

Wow, inside and out your card's always "aah" me! Love your matching papers and sparkles and pointillism. Your Lily looks so real and what a sweet tribute to your Mom! Lily is a beautiful name. It's been just over 10 years since my mom passed away. Many days I wish I could just call her on the phone and visit like we use to do! I'm sure they both know what is in our hearts!
Enjoy your week!

Another gorgeous card Kathie. I love the name Lily too (and you are right, it is SO popular now). It's hard losing a parent right before the birth of a child. I lost my dad just before my youngest was born. I don't think that you can ever have too many Lily cards. Have a great week.
