Apple Emma

Good morning! Did anyone else hear that rain and wind during the night? That was quite a little storm we had! Hopefully that means today will be nice and sunny, although it's not looking that way.
I have coloured this image before, but this time it turned out better....guess I just needed practice. Just pretend along with me that the DP is apples and not cherries (which it could be?) I like this simple layout. No sentiment, may add one later or put it inside.
So I'm off to work today....with Kristen. We always have such fun working together.
Enjoy your day, whatever you are doing.
Thanks for stopping by.

Spring Flowers

Good morning....it's Friday!!! A quick post for today, no watercolouring this time. I pulled out this old set from SU called Paint Prints because I saw a card in the store that I liked and I thought to myself ..'I can make that'. So this is sort of my version of what I saw. It's brighter in real life, as bright as you can get using So saffron and mellow moss. Some cinnamon stickles in the middle, ribbon and rhinestones.
So now it's off to get ready for work.
Thanks for stopping by, and for all your kind comments on my blog.
Have a great day...I think it's back to winter coats today....brrrr!

Loving my Magnolia

My first Magnolia stamp....I think her name is Tilda! I have been admiring these stamps on other blogs wondering how I could get my hands on some, when lo and behold I came across some at the SGD garage sale! I can't even tell you how excited I was...but I was veeeerrryy excited! (I found out later that you can get them at The Town Scrapper in Petrolia). Can't wait to colour up some more of these cute images. Thanks for looking. Enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday Balloons

This little cutie was one of my great garage sale finds at SGD. She is mostly water coloured with markers again, but I wanted to do something different with her dress. Paper-piece it!!...brilliant...and easy, may have to do that again. And how about that bow?....made with my handy dandy bow maker that I was ready to throw at the wall until my friend Anja taught me how to use it properly! What are friends for?!! Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow.

Hedgie on the Run

This cute little hedgie is another one of the images watercoloured with markers. I think this card still needs something in the bottom right-hand corner...maybe a sentiment or some trailing roses.
With all this colouring I`ve been doing, I should have a post for every day this week. Come back and visit.

For a Special Guy

My daughter Brittany is home from University for the Easter weekend, so we spent some time making cards on Saturday night. I have a lot of coloured images that need to be made into cards, so I worked on that while she indulged her creative self in my 'new' garage sale stamps and paper. I have to laugh at her though, when a card doesn't turn out exactly as she hoped she just shrugs and says....'oh well, I'll give it to a boy!'
This stamp is from Greeting Farms, watercoloured with my SU markers. This did turn out the way I hoped, but I'm still giving it to a boy!
Have a great day.
