Earlier this week I received a package of SU Watercolor Paper that I won from Kerin's blog Stamps, Paper, Glitter! that you can find here.
Well, can I just mention how great this paper is?! I had some watercolor paper amongst my supplies from either one of my kids' leftover art classes which I thought was acceptable quality. But after using the SU variety, you just can't compare. Trust me. So this is a card I made for Splitcoast Stampers' weekly sketch challenge using Echoes of Kindness stamp set and watercolors. Only problem now is that it seems I don't have enough stamp sets to watercolor!

This was a real fun challenge this morning - I wasn't too sure about the color combo but when I put it all together I was quite pleased with the outcome. I pulled out some older in-color paper, like when was the last time you used Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate? You can find Kerin's blog here with her challenge. She also has a weekly prize for participating.

I came across this stamp at Scrapbook Centrale last week and had to have it. It is a little melancholy as this song is which was sung by Stevie Wonder at Michael Jackson's funeral. I am posting it for someone that has passed away in November that was very dear to me at one time, but I only learned of his passing just a few days ago.
He was a very special person, enjoyed life and taught me alot. I think he would have liked this card.

Here is my entry for this week's challenge. I haven't done one of these in a while and must admit it is not one of my favorite cards, but I took so much time making it - you know when you spend too much time and then just get frustrated with it and just glue it altogether. Just sayin...
But still love this Razzle Dazzle stamp set and new DP.

Our neighbors just welcomed a wee little princess into the world.
She is absolutely beautiful! Just a bit over 7 lbs but feels light as a feather. Here is the card I made to for her. The swiss dots are from using the Cuttlebug. I got the tutorial from Lauren Meader's blog that you can find here

Here is a project I have been working on that I got from Becky Roberts blog which you can find here. I had so much fun making this and wanted to do something a little different than Becky. For the flowers, I chose to use my embosslit die 'Simple Flower' by SU. I actually use this with by Cuttlebug and it works just fine. Super fun to make - I can't wait for Becky's next tutorial. She is amazing.
