Day 9- Birthdays and Hairballs...
I am so excited that I am actually on Day 9 of Accomplishments!! This has really helped me 'make' time to create and get some of the handmade items ready for Christmas! But today's card is actually a birthday card. I didn't really need a birthday card right now, but while cleaning up my crafting space (which REALLY needed to be done), I came across a small piece of watercolor paper. Rather than set it aside for a later date, I decided to use it. I hadn't used the stamp set Giggle Greetings yet, and thought the cat would be fun to use. I did end up using some Christmas paper, so my stack is a little smaller now!
a shot of the inside, nothing fancy, but love the sentiment!
I would love to say that I watercolored the entire thing, but actually only the cat was colored. The sky and grass are actually pastels. They just seem to work better for me. I need to practice a little more with the whole watercoloring experience...
Well, we have another snow day today, so I am hoping to get my decorating done. We still don't have our tree up... I'll let you know how that goes! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by today!
