There is nothing like sitting outside on my porch in the cool, quiet of the morning enjoying a cup of coffee listening to the birds sing though! I love that quiet time at the start of the day!
The card I am sharing for you today was SO much fun to create. I used the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge -Pacific, Razzleberry, Olives - Such BOLD, RICH colors - it as hard finding a balance but I always find BLACK helps! Well...maybe not always, but in my MIND'S EYE it does, right? LOL
Todays card uses the beautiful I BRAKE FOR STAMPS Birds and Butterflies stamp with the technique Glimmer Mist Watercolors from the Technique Junkie Newsletter
Here are a few more challenges I participated in...
The Pink Elephant - Ribbon and Sparkle!
Just Scraps - OPEN HOUSE!
Paper Cutz Challenge - Anything goes!
butterfly, fairy or angel
A few more details... I Stamped the image in black on white cardstock, then colored the image with my Copics. I then set up my small spray station (just a cut open box!) so I didn't make a mess (ok that is a laugh, if you saw the MESS in my office right now - you would say... TOO LATE! lol) with the over spray of the Glimmer Mists. I then proceeded to follow the directions from the Technique Junkies Newsletter

Now...for those of you following my weight loss.... Today is WEIGH IN DAY! This week was a bit rough, due to having a few parties to go to. I did lose 1 pound, so that is good... I am satisfied - although I had 3 meals that I allowed myself to go OFF my plan - back on program this week though. :)
