Having Fun With Watercolors!




Hello! Welcome to the hop!

by  Heather 




Yes, it looks like I used my  Stitches & Swirls Stamp Set for another blog hop! :) It just worked ! I focussed on the tinny flowers with the needle and thread, and the gingham envelope. I used an old Valentine pack of paper. 
I have not been home much , very busy summer. So sorry I am behind on my commenting. 

Enjoy the hop! 
God Bless

  15. I really like the watercolor "look" and then that little something "the sewing needle" draws the person's eye to the card's design. Nicely done!
