Touch of Nature

Here is card based on Beate John's sketch challenge WSC33. See her blog "Fresh and Fun". It was fun to get out my watercolor crayons and paint brush and paint for a change. I used River Rock and Almost Artichoke cardstock, watercolor paper, and Brocade Backgrounds DSP, Touch of Nature and All Holidays stamp sets, linen thread and you can't really see it but there is Crystal Effects on the three circles.

This weekend I have been up to my elbows in Valentine's supplies. Some of the men at work have asked me to make cards for them to give to their love bugs so I've been doing that. Each one is an original so it takes a little longer then doing mass production. I made a quick trip over to Craft Warehouse and bought some goodies, pulled out stuff from last Valentine's and went to work. I'll share those this week.

Please leave comments when you visit. I would love to know what you think of my blog, my cards, or anything else you'd like to say. My goal is to post every other day so we'll see how that works out.

Speaking of working out... I am joining Body and Soul in Vancouver WA. They have circuit training, belly dancing, weight loss classes, pilates, and more. I'll be meeting my friend Kris at 6:15 am (yes, AM) for pilates. For those that know me, I am NOT a morning person. Yikes!
