We're following the leader...

     This card was made using another image from the December Kit Club release from A Day For Daisies.  I just love Tammy's vintage images.  Can't you just hear this little line of misses singing a fun little nursery rhyme.
     I used papers from Basic Grey's Picadilly collection and colored the image with Copics.
     There won't be a new regular release this week since Tammy's giving us a little holiday break, but I'll be back next Friday with something new.
     I can't believe 2012 is already here!
     If you love Tammy's images as much as I do and would like to either add more to your collection or try them out for the first time, don't forget to enter the drawing for my blog candy.  It ends on New Year's Eve and there are TWO gift certificates from A Day For Daisies up for grabs as well as some awesome kraft products from Kraft Outlet.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp--anything goes
Party Time Tuesdays--anything goes

HI Tracy I am visiting via MIM. I love your card, gorgeous stamp, It reminds me of my old childhood books ;0)

oopsi daisy...I have to put the blog candy back on my blog...i thought it was over!!! This card is fantastic! I've seen the image before (from the site) and what you have done with it Tracy is stellar! The coloring is fantastic. I LOVE your shading. The frame with the nestie ? and then the frame (double) above with the same paper within is SO neat ! It really compliments all you've done! It is SO alive. That you could take the image and envision it to become this way is nothing short of magical. It is a definate keeper. Hey, did I tell you I have *under my pictures* a folder named Tracy!!! I look at the pics and just learn... Love and a hug, your friend - Samara
