Checking in with a new card!

Hello everyone!

I'm checking in here mid-summer to see how everyone's doing!  I miss you all here in blog-land.....but life was getting way too hectic with some family issues and I needed to take a break.  My kids needed me.  We are doing MUCH better now and life is good.  :)

Today was the first day in MONTHS that I have been in my craft room, but that hasn't stopped me from SHOPPING for craft supplies!  I have bought lots of great stuff, and in a few weeks in my town is an annual rubber stamp convention called Stampaway.  I am going and am super excited to buy some new goodies.  

But today I have a simple card made using the new Zig Clean Color Brushes (well, they're new to me!  LOL).  They are super easy to use and makes for some great watercolor effects.  I used watercolor paper for the bird (which is a stamp from Hobby Lobby), then simply mounted with some foam tape on the blue.  



Here is a close up of the bird:


This is  a thank you card, and THANK YOU to everyone who pays me a visit on my blog.  

I hope to be posting more, especially when the kids go back to school, but keep in mind I am working full time now (a big change for us, too), so I may only post every other week, or every week, I'm hoping!  

Take care and hope everyone is having a great summer!  :)

  5. Wonderful water coloring- love the bird on the pretty floral branch! Oh dear- I was down in Ky visiting parents and made it to Stampaway for a bit- maybe in future years we can meet up there- how fun would that be! About three years ago, I made it to some classes too...... Love that show!
