Well it has, as my Mom says, been a very long time since I have posted anything here on my blog!
I really think she is the only one that reads it!!

It was her 81st birthday this past weekend so we celebrated with a lovely lunch and a huge
chocolate cake***

A very simple card stamped in Archival ink and watercolored.

Freehand flowers watercolored.  I took a lettering class and watercoloring class at The Art House Studio in Cambridge Ontario a few weekends ago with Joanne Sharpe.  Had a tone of fun!!
Now to turn this into a card!

The same stamp used on canvas!!  I can't remember whether I posted this one as a card or not
but I wasn't happy with the results so yanked it off and will re-do***

Have a great day everyone!  And if you do stop in THANK-YOU!!!!
