Watercolor Hello

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday!
Hope you're enjoying your day?!...

I'm just taking it easy...it's a relaxation day with a little bit of baking. Though, I probably will have to make a trip to the store, as well. And shouldn't we throw in a little crafting in the mix?! ;)


So I'm sharing a fun watercolor card with you, today. I saw the current Little Tangles challenge and was trying to think of something, though all my previous attempts of watercoloring were just no good. After some serious thinking and playing with some things, something came to me and worked!...At least I hope it worked?!... ;)


Well?!...I used some watercolor paints that were in a tube (this is how out of my element I am...is there a certain name for the paints in a tube?...I really don't know. Though, hopefully you know what I'm referring to?! lol). I added a little bit of water to my paints and then used a paintbrush and painted them on my stamp. After, I stamped on my watercolor paper. I must say, I did a number of practice sheets from adding water to my paper to spritzing my stamp after painted, etc. I basically just played around with things until I liked what I got. ;)

I wanted to keep the focus on my watercolor images. So for my sentiment I chose a little stamped and die cut 'hello' along with a black piece of cardstock underneath it. Easy peasy, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!

Never give up

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday!
Hope all is well?!...

I just have a short and sweet post today. :)

I saw the new CASology Challenge and thought I'd try whipping up something for it before I get too busy and forget. lol Let's face it, my memory is not always the best. ;)


When I thought of 'grow' I was thinking of a flower growing and then also thought of growing within yourself. I think my card pretty much has both of those ideas?...


That's pretty much it for me today.
And just to share, I'm still going through my stash of new goodies....I haven't bought anything but man oh man, I'm finding it ever so hard! ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!

Proud of your strength

Hey y'all! Happy Friday!! :)
Hope all is well?!...

*for my AJVD post, please scroll down.

Well, my kids are finally feeling better and everyone else is doing good...no complaints here. lol Happy to have things getting back to normal around here. :)

So today I'm swinging in to share a card I made for the current CASology Challenge.





Funny things about this card was I actually had my roses already stamped and colored on my cardstock. Though it sat on my desk for days because I wasn't sure what I was really gonna do with it. Then when I saw the cue card, it came to me...I added a little butterfly (and colored it) and then simply added my sentiment. And to top things off, I added just a touch of black cardstock at the bottom of my card. Simple (and quick), yeah?!...Don't you just love it when things work out in the end?!... ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!

Thanks so much...Friend

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday!
Hope all is well?!...

Well, it's the second day of my kids' spring break and I now have two sick kids! Ugh...I hope this all passes by tomorrow and *knock on wood* that no one else gets it.

With things being pretty mellow around the house, I've been having a little more time to create. ;)

So today, I'm swinging on in to share a card for the current Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge.


Oh, when I saw 'one layer' being the challenge...you know how much I love my one layer CAS cards. lol ;) 


See...pretty simple, yeah?!...
I simply started with stamping on my flowers and then colored them in using markers. And after I added my sentiment pieces. That's it. Easy peasy, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon...I'm off to do a little bit of commenting! :)

Party Animals

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!
Hope your week is off to a great start?!...

Today, is the first day of my kids' spring break! I'm happy to have a week of just doing whatever and whenever. lol Though, my youngest happens to be running a fever today, so I hope this isn't the start of how things are gonna go this week. :/

Anyhow, I do have a card to share today. I actually made this card a couple days ago, though just couldn't find the time to edit it and post it. Well, until today that is. ;)


Another 'just for fun' card. I've still been on my 'no more buying' kick, which is proving to be really hard. lol However, I order this stamp set and a few others before going on my no more buying kick. (just thought I'd share that lol)


Once again, I pulled out my colored pencils to color my images in. I kept things simple and chose no sentiment because if I'm being honest, I didn't want to mess anything up! lol Please tell me I'm not the only one who has ever done that?!... ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!
