Watercolored Halloween

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is going fabulously! Ours is really quiet around here. We just keep hoping Nick is having a good time at camp. Tomorrow we are going to Lake City which is a small resort town near the camp. We have rented a cabin to spend the night and then we will be close to pick him up in the morning on Friday. They have invited the families to have lunch with the campers. So that should be fun! I can't wait to hear all about it!

Today's card is one that I did for Techno Stamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch. I LOVE this sketch!! And I will be using it time and again! There are so many things you can do with it. And there are some really great samples on her site! She has so many wonderful sketches that I need to get back and go through them. So I jumped on the band wagon and bought this set, Greeting Card Kids. I totally overlooked it on my first orders but at convention this set was being shown quite a bit and I kept thinking 'How cute'!! So I ordered it and it came Monday with the antique brads and the new crochet trim. LOVE those too!!! OMG! They are so much fun to use. Now, most of you will notice that this is the first time I have watercolored in... well, in forever! I have been a watercoloring fool lately! I got some watercolor paper and some new aqua painters. And the rest is history. I am hooked! I am loving the antique look! And Stampin' Up! makes it SO easy with their great accessories! I know Halloween won't be here for a while but I did hear that decorations were out at some craft stores. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

  1. I too over looked this set first time through, but it is on my list now. Such a cute card, great job with the water-coloring too. Have fun on your overnighter at the cabin. Thanks so much for playing along!
