Now I lay me down to sleep

     I received a wonderful surprise in my e-mail this week from Arielle Gordon who is the DT coordinator for A Day For Daisies.  I think you all know how I feel about these stamps so when Arielle asked if I would like to be a Guest Designer for August at ADFD you know what my answer was.  :-)
     This image is called "Night Time Prayers" and it's from one of the new ADFD releases this week.  Since this is also the start of a new challenge at the ADFD blog, I've created a joy fold card in keeping with the "Feeling (and Folding) Fancy" theme.  You can find the tutorial that I used to make this card at Splitcoast Stampers.
     Here's the inside of my card. 
     Make sure you pop into the ADFD blog and check out the new challenge.  Tammy always provides a wonderful freebie so everyone can play along.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Craft Us Crazy--anything goes in August
Delightful Challenges--stitching real or faux
Crafts and Me--anything goes
Gingersnap Creations--babes and tots
Craft Your Passion--anything goes
Happileigh Scrappin--anything goes
