Boy did our pups have fun waking up to kids in the house. Nothing better than a bed full of kids on a cold morning along with one cute pup.( Major is was too big for the bed)
 Here is my card for two card challenges.
We got some very rare snow here in Southern California today.

Watercolored Stamped Image

CLICK HERE to see the amazing design from Betsy

Hello and happy weekend to you all!
I thought there was going to be a: ( create along with us at Papertrey Ink) this week. 
I made this card when I had the chance. 
Below is my attempt at trying to make a card like 
Betsy using the products I had on hand. 

I used my friend Lisa Elton stamped sentiment created by her for Precious Remembrance Shop: Sweet Pea Stamp Set
 At first I was only going to post to  Here on Instagram but realized so many don't use it yet.

I stamped the images with Farmhouse Market Florals from Papertrey Ink , then used a watercolor pen to smooth out the stamped image. There are no outlines with this stamp set.
Thanks so much for talking a look and thank you to all for such a big response on Instagram Here, I was shocked! 

Blessings to you all!
