Double Daisies - and a Sunshine Award!

   I have two cards to share with you again today.  They both use Papertrey Ink's sets called Floral Frenzy (the daisies) and Around and About Sentiments.  And please be sure to read to the end of this relatively short post for an "award" I received and am sharing. :)
   I made this card for SplitCoastStampers Color Challenge #268 - Barely Banana, Ballet Blue and Old Olive.  I brayered Barely Banana on an Ellison texture plate before embossing the background. The main image panel and sentiment are mounted on Pop Dots.
   This one was made from leftovers from the first card.  I did this image panel first, but didn't like it as much with the blue matting, so I set it aside.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the Kraft (from PTI) cardstock and scored double lines on both sides of it.  It looked a little bare on the bottom left, so I added a little Martha Stewart daisy sticker.  In real life, it improved it.  In the picture, I think it looks out of place!
   I just received this "Sunshine Award" from my great friend, Harriet!  Thanks so much, Harriet.  You can find her blog here:  Allycat Cards.  (I get to see her again in just over a month, when our group meets in June.  I can't wait!  Stay tuned for pictures.)  This award is for recognizing those people who spread sunshine by commenting on others' blogs.
   So, without further ado, here are the twelve people who comment the most on my blog.  I appreciate - so much! - each and every comment I get!  Thanks for spreading the sunshine to me:)
   So, here are the rules:
     1. Put the Sunshine Award on your blog and/or within your post.
     2. Pass the award to 10-12 other bloggers.
     3. Link the nominees within your post.
     4. Let them know they received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.
    5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award.
   Thanks again, Harriet!  And thanks to everyone who comments on others' blogs!
   And thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Wow! Really love these cards -- both of them. I could not pick a favorite. I don't think that little daisy sticker looks out of place at all -- it's perfect! Gosh, thanks so much for the award, Lynette. I'd have to pass this award right straight back to you because you're always so supportive and sweet.
