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!
STOCK AND MEASURES:
So Saffron-card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″, fold in half on the score
Pear Pizzazz-front and inside mats, 4″ x 5.25″
Whisper White- 3.75″ x 5″, both front and inside panels
Blended Seasons- flowers, stems inside

Aqua Painter- filled with rubbing alcohol for ‘water’ painting the flowers and leaves!
Here is my Card, once again!
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!
