He Will

Decided to get the watercolors out today!  I just find water coloring so relaxing!  Today I am using Fantastic Flowers  from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, which is a new release and I have paired it with an older set, Be Encouraged.  this is one of my favorite quotes and sometimes it is a hard on to grasp.  We know he can but sometimes we wonder if he will, but...HE ALWAYS DOES!  I stamped onto watercolor paper and used watercolor markers and a paintbrush, distressed the edges and added some pearls!

Snail Mail

Hello friends, I have a new stamp to show you today from Unity Stamp Co.  Love this stamp set!  I made this card using paper from The Paper Studio and my stash.  The sketch is from Mojo Monday which is the last Mojo Monday! I have not done the Mojo Monday sketch in a long time due to time restraints but used to always go to it for inspiration when I first started stamping.  Julee, your sketches will be missed by so many but I am glad you will still be around at Verve which I also love.
