Dream Big!


Making my oldest sons birthday card. He's been called "bear" since he was a wee little thing. 


I masked out the bear, balloon, and planets. Then took out my watercolors and made a fun galaxy background.  


This is the finished card. I added some shimmering spray and glossy accents to the finished card. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you showers of Joy

I saw this adorable card made by Julie Ebersole on theClassroom by Ellen Hudson.
She used the new stamp sets from Hero Arts oh my gosh the stamps are adorable. I was inspired by her card and don't have the new hero arts stamps... yet. So I looked through my stash and found some unloved stamps by mama elephant.  This little bear reminds me of paddington bear! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Watercolor peony




Did this watercolor for a friend who is going through a horrible time. Her position was eliminated from work and her mom passed away. And through it all she's been strong and giving worrying about everyone else.... I know a watercolor will not take her pain away or fear of the unknown.... but I am hoping it will bring a smile to her face and let her know she is thought of and loved. 


This was the first step.... I absolutely love peonies. 


Thanks for stopping by!!!
