MFT Summer Camp Day 1 & MFT Color Challenge 121

Take 2 on Day 1 of MFT’s Summer Camp! This is another fully watercolored card, painted with the 36 color set of Gansai Tambi’s. I need to use these more often cause I just saw they now offer a 48 pan set but I refuse to buy it (yet) with so much paint left in […]

MFT Summer Camp Day 1 – Watercolor

I’m making an effort to participate in MFT’s Summer Camp every day this week. I had so much fun with the first day’s event of watercolor, you may see more than one card from the effort! This card, using MFT’s Friends in the Forest, is my favorite!!! I used my 36 Gansai Tambi watercolors on […]

Sitting Here Thinking of You with Hero Arts

Missing You Always beach scene

Ice Cream Hugs

My bestie isn’t a chocolate or cookie girl, so I can’t send her a Hershey bar or homemade chocolate chip cookies to show her I care. Her vice is ice cream, and *that* you unfortunately cannot ship 600 miles away and hope it will hold on a porch in the middle of Florida. Next best […]

Bouquet of Thanks for a Friend

So, my BFF is about to face the biggest challenge of her life thus far… her one and only child, now 18 years old, is leaving for college and not only that, she’s leaving this weekend so she can attend a summer session. She’s going to need something… anything… to make her smile when she […]
