This started out by stamping the flower and deciding to watercolor it. After a royal mess of that I tossed it in the trash. Done deal and no more worries. I was complaining to my best friend about it and she said to dig it out of the trash and smear some distress ink all over it - which I did. It pretty well washed out the flower and leaf color I'd watercolored so I added some Copics to that, added the sentiment and sequins, and walla....a birthday card to add to the pile!
I'm going to have a very busy week so thought I'd schedule a couple of cards in advance. I'll be by to visit when I can but know it probably won't be every day. Hope everyone has a great week.
Thanks for stopping by.......

After seeing Marilyn over at One Stamping Fool and several other wonderful artists make such cute cards with this stamp set from Taylored Expressions, I knew I had to have it! The design is from a sketch I saw not long ago and thought it would be perfect to showcase the grumpy, but fun, cat.
Good Golly! I just realized this card would slide right into the challenge over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets). It's a fun challenge and one I haven't played in lately. Hate to take such a grump over there but still a fun challenge. Maybe it'll even put a smile on his face being with such a happy group of ladies.
Thanks for stopping by........and have a great weekend.

These are larkspur in our front yard. Really pretty flowers - and so many. I cropped the picture pretty good since I doubt if you'd really want to see all the thistles that are growing in with them too. I guess I could wade in there and pull the thistles out but I'm not really keen on having slithery, creepy, crawly things find their way up my pants legs either.
We've also had a little bit of a rocky road lately - actually a big pothole - but we're slowly climbing out of it once again. Hopefully all will be better soon. One day at a time.......
I'll be by blogs as soon as I can so hang in there with me.
