Hello All,

I just wanted to pop in to enter this card in a few challenges- The Paper Players, tic-tac-toe challenge, CAS Watercolour Card, Creative with Stamps and Freshly Made Sketches challenges. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

A single lily pad floating in the water.
I challenge you what is there not to smile about.
I colored the focal image with Distress Markers and an aqua pen.
Always makes for some beautiful effects.

A detailed picture of the lily and die cut sentiment paired
with a stamped sentiment.
Challenges Entered:
I chose Pink, Leaf, and Flower for my entry


I must say creating really takes a load off your mind... I have had quite the hectic week (with more planned tomorrow) and haven't had much time to myself. Well, tonight I decided to create for me. Wow! do I feel better! Tired but better!! What a joy and privilege that I have found this outlet and to share it with you really makes my heart sing... Thank you.

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
