Last week, I was playing around with trying something new and accidentally stumbled onto something really fun...and that had a beautiful result. This was the card I gave my husband yesterday for your 42nd Wedding Anniversary. The stamp I used is part of the Meant to Be Stamp Set. You can see it in the lower… Continue reading Valentine Watercolor – Meant to Be
One Design – Two Different Cards
Recently I was playing around experimenting with some water color backgrounds when I was making Valentine cards. Some of my attempts were not good...so I just put them aside thinking maybe I could use them for something else. Besides I hate to waste paper. One of the instagram people I follow does beautiful watercoloring.… Continue reading One Design – Two Different Cards
Grab some watercolor paper, an Aqua Painter and an ink pad and you are ready to create something fabulous! Well, OK, you will also need to have a few extra heart pieces that are leftover from making other cards. You have been making cards, right?? If you’ve been making Valentine cards for several days like… Continue reading Watercolor Valentine
A Trio of Butterflies
When I was getting ready for last Card & Chat class, I decided to break out the butterflies.

Overflowing with Flowers
I’ve been on a flower kick lately....maybe it’s because the Christmas holidays are over and it’s been a dreary, rainy start to January in Virginia Beach and I’m longing for some sunny weather. Despite the rain, the temperatures have been almost spring-like....in the 60’s and it even hit 71 degrees a day or two ago.… Continue reading Overflowing with Flowers
Pretty in Pink
It was a dreary overcast day when I was playing around and practicing my watercoloring....and using my Aqua Painter, so I decided to make something bright and cheery. So put your sunglasses on and gaze at my pink creation....shades of Lovely Lipstick and Mango Melody to be exact. This stamp set I used is called… Continue reading Pretty in Pink
One of the gifts my husband and I received at Christmas was an Amazon Echo Dot, so now I can out loud and I have somebody that will listen and respond...if I call Alexa’s name that is. So we’ve asked for the weather report and to play music. So I get to hum along....well,… Continue reading Humming Along
Taking a Bird Break
Taking a break from the Christmas madness to bring you some beautiful birds. They kind of happened by accident. A class to make Christmas gift bags and treat holders was cancelled when life got in the way and several people weren’t able to come. It left just one....my friend Karen. She loves birds. Blue birds.… Continue reading Taking a Bird Break
