2014 Project Life ~ Week 13

What an exciting week! We drove to Cumberland, MD to get our marriage license, pick our place to get married, and meet the Reverend who is going to marry us! Never did we think we would get to do this!!! We also go to hang out with Terri twice this week. And my sweet Logan went shopping and being goofy with me. Awesome week!

Thank You

Hey! Still trying my hand at water coloring. I am really enjoying playing around with this technique.
Our son’s girlfriend took care of our dogs while we were out of town and so I made her this little card.

Lawnscaping Challenge: Watercoloring



I haven’t had a lot of time to create the last few months, but today I saw the Lawnscaping Challenge and since I needed a “thank you” card anyway…I’m playing along. I’m just learning about water coloring and I love Lawn Fawn stamps, so here you go. I hope you’ll stop by the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog and play along too.

The Reverend’s Card

I got married last month!!! After 17 years together we are finally legal! :) Anyway, the Reverend who officiated at our wedding was just wonderful. This is a card I made for her for all that she did for us.
This is the first watercolor card I’ve done and I couldn’t have done it without the advice I got from Kathy Racoosin at Simon Says Create. You should go check out her blog.

Pop card

I know I’m way behind, but here is a father’s day card I made. I learned a lot at Simon Says Create so I’m practicing watercolor painting and using distress inks for backgrounds.

Pop card: I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads in Salty Ocean, Broken China, Dusty Concord, and Forest Moss. Not paint or reinkers. Sorry for the confusion on the links.
