Playdate with Michele

After two years I finally scheduled a Playdate with Michele.  In case you didn't know, I moved to Ohio in 2020 to live with my daughter in the winter.  Summers are spent at Higgins Lake, Michigan which is much closer to where Michele lives so it made the date possible. Marcia was supposed to meet with us one day but she had a family emergency that kept her away and I missed seeing her.  It's always such fun to sit face to face with friends and have a great time crafting, laughing, eating and sharing.  

We decided to each make a card to post today.

The flowers, oval and sentiment are from a new set of Michele's from Concord and 9th.  They're actually black-eyed Susans but this daisy lover had to make her fav.  I even borrowed the textile embossing folder from SU.  

I know what Michele made and you're going to love it.  Head on over to I Card Everyone to check it out.

    Great job of turning the Black-eyed Susans into Daisies! They're so pretty and the light sponging on the petals are so effective!

  9. How fun it must have been for you and Michele to play together. I love your card. Coneflowers are some of my favorites. I love the embossed background. I also love the bit of inking on the petals.
