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!

Online Water color Card Class Day 11 and Bonus Day

Day 11 started us out with a Tim Holtz video.
Here I used an MFT stencil called spring flowers.
I do not have any of the mini distress ink pads, but they would definitely allow you to place the ink in a lot of different locations...the bigger pads are harder to keep confined to small spaces.
The second card is also from the Tim Holtz demonstration.  I used another MFT stencil (looking for stencils that have a lot of white space) Funky Florals.
Both sentiments are MFT Cheerful Blessings.
There are a couple of ladies from church who are going through some difficult times, I thought these cards would be fun to send to them.
Was I surprised to wake up this morning and find a BONUS day at the class!  I shouldn't have been
surprised, really! They do that a lot...they give us a lot of bang for our buck!
So here are two cards from the Bonus Day:
This card was really fun it was by Laura Sterckx.
What a fun technique, will try this again using different colors.
The butterfly is a die cut from a friend in The Netherlands.
Sequins and a sentiment were added!
This was another card from Yana...
A big bold sentiment was used and I chose another one from MFT Cheerful Blessings,
added some black hearts from the same set and also some more sequins and pearls.
Well, that is it for now...can you believe I still have more that I can do in order to try every single demonstration...I may not get to every one, but I am hoping I can do a few more!
Thanks for taking the time to look at all these cards!
Hope your weekend is turning out to be fabulous.
I went to the mall with my youngest daughter (35 today!!  what? how did that happen?)
And we shopped till I dropped and didn't come home with very much at all.
Nothing fun at least, she couldn't find anything that she wanted and actually neither could I, depressing, huh?
But I came home, laid down to read and ended up sleeping for an hour!!
OMG that is hard work and I don't do it very often!
Have a blessed Sunday! 


  1. Wow! Gorgeous cards, Colleen! I enjoyed viewing every one! So different with lovely backgrounds! Glad you are enjoying the water color classes!

  2. Loved them all! Bright, cheerful and beautiful sentiments!

  3. These are terrific. The first one is so colorful and the sentiment is so nice. The others are equally great. I haven't had time to do the bonus day but I'm thrilled with it. This has been the most fantastic class yet!

  4. Beautiful cards! This might work with Distress Stains too perhaps.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
