Daisy Picking Valentine

I'm breaking tradition here and using blue and yellow on my Valentine card instead of all the reds and pinks.  I've seen so many Valentine cards the last couple of weeks and am MORE than ready to move on to spring or summer - or even fall!   I'm almost to the point of wanting to put away all that red and pink stuff and not even looking at again until next Valentine's Day!

Anyway, this image came by way of From the Heart stamps with their progressive challenge.  I played along last month with another cute image so received this one for free this month and will be playing along again!  They have some really cute images there.

I used to love picking daisies and then pull off the petals.  I ALWAYS had to cheat!!!  I mean, who wants to end up with the "he loves me not" business anyway!

Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

For you, reds and pinks are getting tiresome, for me it's white that is tiresome. LOL This dash of spring colors is such a welcome sight. I think he is darling and yes, I used to cheat also. We won't tell anyone. Have a fun day.

This is cute Lynn! I love those images and always mean to play along with the challenge... I will have to try harder.
I like the non-traditional valentine colours and that pearl necklace on her is so funny.

This is really cute! And tell me where does it read that Valentine cards have to be pink or red? smile. I don't think I could ever get tired of pink cards (since it's my favorite color) but I am getting a little tired of making Valentine cards too.

Maxine D said...

Fabulous and such fresh colours Lynn. Love it.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Well, listen to you being the Grinch of Valentine's Day with your bah humbug and your blue chicken! I LMAO and hear you about moving on. Two more posts and I'm over it. I love your chicken to pieces! (That sounds sort of delicious and wrong!) Happy VD, Lynn! Hugs, Darnell

Tracy Freeman said...

So cute Lynn...I know what you mean about valentines....and I haven't even made a valentines card lol xxx

Vivienne Holden said...

I'm with you Lynn! All those hearts and flowers are doing my head in now, so your cute card is such a refreshing take on the subject.
It's also ideal to give to someone that doesn't do all the flowery stuff.
Love it! xxx

MiamiKel said...

That's so cute Lynn - I live non traditionally colored cards so this is right up my alley :) superb CAS design as always!

ahlers5 said...

This is totally adorable. I usually don't make Valentine's Day cards. I never use them. I should probably make one for my grandson, though.

Benzi said...

Isn't it the truth? No one wants to end with, "he loves me not." :-)
Your image with the jewelry laden birdie is just too, too cute. I like your colors, too. I like to go non-traditional with Christmas and valentine colors.

Brenda said...

Well I am loving your color combo Lynn because I am so ready to move on to spring! lol This is such a cute card! love that chick with her daisy and oh yes, didn't we all cheat with pulling the petals off. lol Love this in the non traditional colors my friend! Hugs, Brenda

Kat W said...

This is a lovely change from pink/red and makes a really fresh looking Valentine's card, plus it works really well with the cute image and awesome CAS design :-)

Big hugs, Kat x

Davi said...

VERY cute Lynn! I love the non traditional colors and the image makes me laugh!! Too fun ;)

NanaConnie said...

I adore all of those silly birds at From the Heart, Lynn, and I really love this blue and yellow combo you chose. :-D Wonderful simple design with the twine for an accent. What do you mean you had to 'cheat'? Weren't you supposed to say "...loves me..." with every petal?

Hi Lynn love love love this hun crafty hugs Judith xxx

Sassy Raggedy said...

You always have the cutest stamps. I love the simplicity of this. It is so cute. Hugs, joann

Bonnie said...

Love the pearls and I've got to admit, it makes me really happy to see that yellow!

MaryH said...

Cute card, and humourous post too! I hear you with the red, pink & black & all the hearts. I'm burnt out on that theme! Your blue & yellow looks very fresh and is still a "lovey" card. I like this glamorous little chick and yes I laughed about the daisy petals too. I expect we all did that!! TFS & Hugs.

Shelly Schmidt said...

So cute, and yes- brings back lots of memories of picking off flower petals! Love your layout- and wait- NO Pink or Red until next year....NOOOOOO!

Deepti said...

Awww this guy is so very cute :) love the pop of yellow

Anne Temple said...

Great imageand I love your color choices!

Jessi Fogan said...

I love these colours together! so bright & cheery and YES not pink or red, lol!

Margaret said...

I LOVE the colors you chose for this! The image is so cute and I really like the blue and white twine too!
As far as cheating at the daisy game, we cannot be held responsible for the petals that just happen to fall off together or if we somehow 'forget' which phrase we were on! Personally, I just tossed the ones that didn't work out and tried another one!!

Jo said...

A pretty CAS card, love your colour palette. Fab work throughout.
Thank you for joining our Stamp of the Month challenge at From the Heart Stamps.
