Get Well Wishes for JUGS453 andPP405!

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for peeking in today!

Today’s Card is for a combination of 2 Challenges!

One is a Color Challenge, the other, a Technique Challenge!

 

Here are the Challengers!

 

First, the Technique Challenger…Just Us Girls #453 (JUGS453)

I am guessing this means a ‘quick watercolored’ card…?

 

Second, the Color Challenger, the Paper Players #405 (PP405)

What a great Color Combination! Very Summer-like!

 

Here is my Card!

I used the Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody in the flowers,

The So Saffron is the Card base!

One note…when I ‘water-color’, I used alcohol in my Aqua Painter!

I find, I don’t have to use ‘watercolor’ paper and it dries quicker,

without curling the cardstock too!

The ‘water-coloring’ part of this card was very quick…I am guessing that is the ‘fast’ part!

 

Here is the inside of my Card!

The stems on the inside, came out in a two-toned look! I did not plane it, it just happened!

I do love the COLORS!

I will be using this color combo again soon! I LOVE it!

 

On Another Note:

I have a wonderful friend up North that is going through many health issues, regarding her Scleroderma. This disease also affects her auto-immune system, heavily. Please keep my friend, Patsy in prayer. The Doctors say her mortality, at this point is 5 years. She just became a Grandmother, and is loving the joy of that right now! Patsy tires very easily and please join me in praying for a miracle for Patsy. I would love for her to be able to watch that Grand-baby grow up! Also her youngest son is only in his second year of college. What a wonderful family! I do miss her much, and I guess I didn’t realize the extent of her illness…when we last spoke, a week or so ago, Patsy let me know the whole story. I am keeping her lifted up for a healing. Join me? Thanks in advance!

This Card is going to Patsy.

Until the next Post…Blessings and Thanks to you ALL!
