Water Colors.....

Good morning!
I have a card I made awhile back to share with you today. It was created on a night when I was sort of "goofing" around with water colors. My Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers to be exact.  
I also used this pretty circle/flower die cut from Silhouette.

It was cut using water color paper and of course colored with the markers.  I added glossy accents for a bit more pop and dimension. I used several small flower sequins scattered about as well. 
For a finishing touch, I tied ribbon and a bit of twine at the top.

Tomorrow is Kyle's graduation party, which means I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to clean, shop, and prepare for our guests!
And unfortunately, still dealing with Cortney's infection.  She went to wound care yesterday, where they debrided the wound. It is rather deep and makes me very nervous.
So prayers that it heals quickly and prayers that tomorrow goes off without a hitch! ;) 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Crafty Secret's DT Challenge and Linky Party!

Good morning!  It is the start of a brand new month, which means it is also time for Crafty Secret's DT Challenge and Linky Party!
The theme this month was to make a masculine themed card in honor of the upcoming Father's Day celebration.
I have to admit that masculine cards are not my forte! 
It's hard to justify glitter, bling, and doilies on a man's card! LOL!
I used a free printable that Sandy had offered awhile back. 
I added a few circles to emulate fish bubbles, with a scattering of sequins, and a bow. 
I don't know if adding ribbon is "allowed" on a man's card.....but in my world it is okay! ;)

I wanted my fish to be a bit shimmery (not glittery....just shimmery!) so I reached for my Wink of Stella pen.
I pulled out coordinating papers I printed from Crafty Secrets.

Added my "fish bubbles" and a bit of ribbon/twine.  I think adding the twine made it "legal" to add satin ribbon.  ;)

Be sure to head on over to the other design team member's blogs for more inspiration!
Have a great day!

Sing Out Loud!

Good morning!
It is hard to believe that it is nearly I sit here in long pants and a sweater! It is only 50 degrees here! So I will think warm happy thoughts to get me through the day!
I have a bright little bird to share with you.
He seems happy and most importantly......WARM! ;)
It is a cute set by JustRite called, Sing Out Loud.  I embossed it in white and colored it with my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers. (Love these markers!)
I layered the image using various dies from Spellbinders.  I added ribbon and a few sequins to complete the card.

I am heading out for a "date" with the husband today.  We celebrated 22 years of wedded bliss on Friday.  So we are going to a play, Billy Elliot, and then to a dinner where wine is served. ;) 
No laundry or cleaning for me today!
Have a wonderful Sunday! 
 (Even if it is quite chilly! BRRRR!)
