Edited to add:  I’ve officially changed blogs.  Here is a link to my new home:

New Splashes of Watercolor

Thank you so much for your patience while the SCS blogs have been down or at least a little wimpy!  I hope you’ll change your links and subscriptions to reflect my new blog address and I most certainly hope that you’ll visit me there often!

I apologize profusely for the inconvenience that I know this causes for you, and I look forward to seeing you at my new home!

I’ve been trying to post for 3 days now, but am not able to publish a post with photos.  What good is a stamping related post without photos, right??  So temporarily (or maybe not), I’m publishing here:

Temporary Splashes of Watercolor


Thanks for your patience and trouble while I figure this out!!

Chocolate Makes It Better – Color Throwdown #74

Chocolate Makes it Better crop

Yeah!  It’s time for the very first Color Throwdown of 2010!!  Can you believe another year has come and gone??

We’re also celebrating because we have a brand new CTD designer!!  She’s so cool and so talented and I bet you already know her….Kristin Bueter!!  And for her initiation, we’ve asked her to start the new year off by hostessing her first Color Throwdown challenge.

You may have seen that she’s designing the beautiful digital papers for Lauren Meader’s new store, My Time Made Easy.  Well, Lauren has generously donated 2 prizes, each consisting of a template and 2 of the new paper packs, for this week’s challenge.  And all the design team members were given the paper  to use in our creations.

The colors that Kristin chose are straight from her papers called Fluttering-by and Shutt-erfly.



I’ve chosen Our Craft Lounge’s Granny from Granny’s Truffles to grace this week’s Valentine themed card.  Isn’t she just too cute?  Lovin’ that chocolate!  The wavy line background paper and the sweet gingham paper are both Kristin’s creations.

Fairy Dust on kraft – Van Gogh style

Fairy Dust on Kraft crop

I wanted to play along with the technique challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week.  I’ve never tried the Van Gogh technique before, but it sure was fun and I can’t wait to experiment some more!

I chose Fairy Dust is a Must from Our Craft Lounge to work with and decided to try it on kraft cardstock.  I love it paired with the Basic Grey Lemonade 6×6 papers.

I’m so glad you stopped by!

It Was on Sale!

It Was on Sale crop

So did you shop the day after Christmas?  I only went to a local pharmacy to stock up on Christmas wrapping paper and a few other things for next year.  It was close and I didn’t have to fight the crowds!  Just the way I like to shop!

I’ve got a card to show you today using the Our Craft Lounge set Shop ’til Ya Flop.  This is such a fun set!!

It Was on Sale

I guess I’m ready for the holidays to be over now, but it sure was fun spending so much time with the family.  Especially all the grandkids…they are so much fun!  They all had a happy Christmas, so all is well in their world.  How simple a child’s life is!

I hope you have a wonderful week.  Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas to you!

Holly Holiday Wish crop

I have 3 more Christmas cards to show you.  All have super-cool images from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps.

I love this little girl with her doll.  The image is called A Holiday Wish (E3273).  And I’ve used the beautiful Holly Swag (D2762) as well.

Holly Holiday Wish

This next card is very rustic.  It uses the 2 tree images that come together and are called Scratched Tree (C2927).

3 Trees

And this tag (the bigger one) was made for Kazan’s Sketch 42 at the 2 Sketches 4 You blog.  I LOVE playing along with hers and Laura’s challenges.  The images used are Pinecone Ornament (B2499) and Background Block (RB7001).  I had some scraps so I made a second smaller tag too!

Pinecone Christmas Tags

I want to wish each and every one of you that have visited me this year a VERY Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year!
