Would You Like to Learn to Watercolor?

It seems that my little watercolor card that I did in this post was pretty popular.

We liked it so much that we did it again. We used more water so we kicked it up a notch and used the Stampin’ Up! Shimmery White Card Stock. I know you can’t see it much on your screen, but that shimmer is there!

A Quick & Easy Watercolor Card

You might think that quick and easy don’t go with a watercolor project, but I beg to differ. Once Ann followed my directions, she found that she could make this card in about 10 minutes.

A Better Tea Cup Card

So what did you do yesterday? Did you watch the NFL Football Playoffs? While Ann went to her tea, I stayed home with my favorite huMAN and watched football.

My Blue Valentine Card

If you’ve been reading my barks at all, you know that my favorite huMAN loves blue! We can make ANY card BLUE and he’d be fine with that.

So why can’t a Valentine be blue?

It can! You can make it any color if you make it yourself! And how much more meaningful is that!?!

You are a Beautiful Blessing

Wouldn’t it be nice to get a card that said that you were a beautiful blessing?

I’m thinking that you should get one every day! Don’t you agree?

We did something we hadn’t done in a long time: I had Ann color with Aqua Painters and ink refills.

Everything Doesn’t Have to be Perfect to be Right

Have you ever had a day (or night) where things just didn’t seem to be going well, but in the end, they went VERY well?

Last night was one of those nights.

It’s was Yuba City Stamp Club night. That’s when stampers come over here to the house to fawn all over me and make some cards.

It was Cindy’s turn to be hostess. That meant that she brought the treats and got to pick out lots of cool stuff FREE!
