Grow with Love

This card was for a Monthy swap that I’m participating in on the SCS Swaps Forum. Each month I receive a packet from someone in my group with some type of designer paper and an image. I have to come up with a design and make 5 of the cards to send to the other people on my team. I absolutely loved this paper (I don’t know if you can tell, but it is kind of shimmery! The image was so fun to water color. I actually have real water colors, I’ve tried the pencils and I have some, but it is hard to get the color I want. With real water colors I can mix some colors to get the perfect shade. I also used Crystal Effects for the heart on the envelope. Very fun!

I know I mentioned that I would be posting a journal that I’m doing soon… and I still plan to, but I want to make sure it is complete before I take picks of it and create a pattern for you. I’m going to a stamping get-together in Frankenmuth area (Michigan) in a couple weeks and have to have all these things ready by then. I’m so excited for this event, I found this on the SCS site… a Michigan Stamping Get Together! There are about 50 of us meeting up there for stamping challenges, projects and just plain fun. I’m really looking forward to it.

Well, that is all for now. I have more cards and projects to share, but no pictures yet… so I will probably post them tomorrow. Have a good weekend everybody!
