"Pushin' up Daisy"

I had a little flash of inspiration while sitting at my desk the other day. I was looking at this little pen turned "flower" in a tiny pot that my daughter made me for Mother's Day and decided I'd make a pretty flower for my monster mud project. Daisies are my favorite flower, and they are used quite frequently as the subject of what happens when one dies, ie pushing up daisies. So the idea was planted, and this is what grew from that tiny seed of inspiration. Everyone, meet "Daisy":







And my little ghoul, Emily who so kindly held the tape measure.
