AD4D Challenge #126

I decided to enter a challenge for a change.  I've had this image for quite sometime (1/2 colored)
and it always remained me of a set of tin ware cups we had hanging in our kitchen.
This is an image I purchased when I was a member of A Day For Daisies.
I colored the image with Copics, handmade my flowers and added cobalt rhinestones.
I added a ribbon between the image and the "newsprint" (which is what the challenge was).
I had fun adding all the white dots on the "tin" cup.
Challenge I am entering:

I love Ike's "Geranium Basket" !!  I can be used for so many occasions.   Thinking of you, Miss you, Get well, Happy Birthday and I'm sure you can think of many more.  I left off the sentiment since I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for yet. 

I dyed a paper doily from the "Dollar Store" and used Copics to color.
I used 2 shades of pink for the geraniums, a yellow and 2 shades of brown for the basket and 3 shades of green for the leaves.
I really do think everyone should have this in their stash so they can take their time or color in a rush to get it to the post.  Something always comes up that's been forgotten.  :-}

Where IKE will give you a freebie to use -So everyone can share!
 You could be the winner of free digi stamps.

My Doctor Card

An "IKE" work for my Doctor.
I've been with my Dr (and his nurse wife) for over 20 years.  He saw me when I was healthy and walking and work through to when I bounced off the walls (literally) to make it to an exam room.  We've been through a lot together.  So in order to thank him and his staff I created this.
Such knowledgeable and caring health care providers are a blessing.
The "extras" are Jolee stickers.

Father's Day 2015

I had all my cards ready to when 2 people told me that Father's Day wasn't for 2 weeks. was in a week so I didn't get these out this year but I'll be ready come next year.  :-}

Little did they know they did me a favor....LOL and no one complained about not getting a card.
These are the cards I made:
For my Brother-in-Law that loves to travel.

 For my Brother-in-Law that's a star in our lives.
For the man that takes his grandson fishing.
I hope this gives you some ideas for next year.
