Daisy makes

Daisy came to stay for half term recently and as always she wants to head straight to my studio when she arrives. Our creative time together is wonderful and her designs really amaze me. We also enjoyed some lovely walks, fed the dinos which she loved and enjoyed lunch out. She was delighted that I had saved my bulb planting for her to help with. We took a trip up to the nursery and she chose some violas with me and also a primula.

I explained to her that the bulbs need to have their roots planted downward. 

 She planted up one pot

and I planted the other.
 We also planted up the primula she chose.
I told her that I will send photos when I see the first shoots peep up.

Daisy also loves the ATC and coins swaps I am involved in and as the new theme came up on 1 November I asked if she would like to make a set too. Of course she said yes!
The theme was hearts and we decided to use the Visible Image Queen of hearts set. We made a background using purple card and some stencilled hearts. I then cut 8 ATCs from the piece of card, 5 for me and 3 for Daisy. I made 5; 3 are for the swap, 1 for Daisy and 1 to keep
So these are Daisy's 3, don't you love the purple hair!
This is the gorgeous swap she gave me
and below are mine. I used the queen of hearts card stamps from the set and added some ordinary small playing cards! 
I would like to enter my ATCs into the following challenges;

Crafter's Castle 2/3 anything goes

 I think "Queen of hearts" is pretty appropriate for my Darling Daisy. It is nearly her 6th birthday and I have been busy making her cake...I will share it very soon but if you can keep it under your hat here is a very sneaky peek....she wanted butterflies as her theme so I have made a whole kaleidoscope of them.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend,

Back soon,

Bye for now,
