Daisy Drives A Lot

Not Driving Miss Daisy (old movie title) but Miss Daisy, all I do is drive!

Ever feel YOUR name is Daisy Drives A Lot? 

Let me tell you it is WONDERFUL when your last child gets their license and you only drive when YOU need to. 

I hope you can find a use for Daisy here. 
Maybe you can use this character on a page about your long commute to work.
Or about all the things you overhear while carpooling
Or maybe you DRIVE ME CRAZY on a page or card

I used some parts from SU's two new punches, the cupcake and the flower one that I can't remember the name of (you know, the one that has the feather duster looking thing? -let's call it the Feather Duster Flower punch from now on.  OK?)  I'm sure there will be many fun uses for these punches but I spend most of my weekend scrapbooking and didn't play punches until the last couple of hours when I was too exhausted to think.

Daisy Driver Parts
Face - Owl (upside down, feet and ears cut off)

Hair – Full heart (upside down)

Bangs – medium oval

Eyes – circle itty bitty punch pack

Lips – modern label – punch tip with circle itty bitty punch pack

Shirt - feather duster from the new feather duster flower punch

Collar – slot (retired) or use a small scrap strip

Sometimes it is hard to judge the scale of these characters. Daisy Driver here is 3.75 inches tall.

Great--now I need more punches! This is SO SO me 6 days a week for my son and his ballroom lessons with his partner, his team and solo. Must place another SU order--must buy more punches (and find that elusive key tag one too).
