Make Lemonade


the less is more challenge this week is to use a rubber stamp and watercolour (my favourite technique) so i used three different watercolour media to colour this penny black image: watercolour crayons, twinkling H2Os and distress ink pads. i cut out one lemon, added stickles to the edge and popped it on foam tape. thanks for popping by.

In Loving Memory

i made this card for my son, who passed away two years ago today and it just feels natural to me to continue to make cards to honour him, especially because he always encouraged me along my creative pursuits. besides, so much has changed since that horrific day that my card making is probably the only thing that feels natural; everything else just feels out of whack – maybe it always will.  i miss him and think of him daily, but with my birthday last saturday and father’s day tomorrow, it’s been an overwhelming week. teddy is watercoloured and i added flower soft to the flower centres and for the grass.  i’m submitting this card to the flower soft floral challenge.

thanks for popping by. i always appreciate everyone’s comments, but depending on what kind of day i’m having, i sometimes don’t get around to commenting as often as i should.
