You're a Daisy if you do...

Anyone recognize which movie that line is from? Que Jeopardy music here... LOL It was Tombstone... I can remember that movie came out when I was a junior in high school and my friends and I went to see it a couple different times in the rinky dink little theater in town. I think I may have had a crush on Val Kilmer's Doc Holiday character, he just had the best lines! The other one that I really remember and quote quite often is, "I'll be your huckleberry." Heeheehee yes I think I've firmly established how much of a nerd I am by now. ;) Anway, this crazy cute little Daisy Sprout from TGF is what caused my little sidetrack moment down memory lane, isn't she a doll? As soon as I saw her with that wild, tweaked out hair she brought to mind Chef Anne Burrell from the Food Network channel so of course Daisy had to be a blond too, LOL! I did do just a smidge of altering by wiping away her large ruffled collar before stamping and drew in the rest of her sleeves to fill in the space. And I'm envious at how well she is pulling off that culottes look... I don't ever remember feeling that cute the few times my mom made me wear some back in the day. LOL So crazy Daisy is also entering a couple of challenges today... all of the colors in this card came from Lily Pad Cards' first ever Color Throwdown challenge. Anything with orange in it is a winner in my book and I had the perfect papers too! And as it was coming together I thought that the colors were very Spring looking all together so I'm also entering this card into the Farm Fresh W.O.W Swing into Spring challenge. Whew! A two-fer... that doesn't happen often around the ol' thousand sheets bloggity blog! ;) Ok, time for me to scoot my boot... TTYL!

ADORABLE! Very fun and bright and pretty ;0)Summer on a card.

Ok, I LOVED Tombstone as a kid and also watched it at an unsuitable age. Thought Val was fab too, so we can be nerds together, k?
