One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Make it Monday ~ Artsy Water Color Background

Well, wasn't this good timing!
Just after completing the Online Water Color Class,
the new MIM HERE  is about "artsy water color background"!!
I was thinking I needed a really bright and cheerful birthday card...
I pulled out Simply Sunflower and inked up pure poppy,
orange zest, raspberry fizz, and berry sorbet, along with simply chartreuse.
The leaves are from embellished Elegance.
I am kind of getting into this watercolor artsy thing that seems to be the rage right now...
will have to keep at it!
We have the sun back!!  Yeah!
Go out and make it a good day!
Heart Hugs,
