Layered Flowers



Betsy has a fun video up on this simple and fun way to add a bit of watercolor to your card . So easy!

Hi! A quick post to share two cards. Doodlie Do is new to me so I might be using this set a lot! I dooo love it!


For this card I used scraps that were already on my desk .

The card is above it for Retro sketches


I am pleasantly pleased with this fast watercolor for the background of my card. Under a few of the flowers I added some fun foam, I like the way it makes for a more even pop up.



 I wanted to share this cute picture of my daughter and son-i-l, they were hosting a.. going away party at their house a few weeks ago . 

 God Bless!

  2. LOVE both cards and your smooshing here, Marybeth. Doodlie Do is a beautiful set of stamps/dies~It's now on my Wish List (along with way too many other older sets).
    What a cute photo of your gorgeous daughter and handsome son-in-law!

  3. Both cards look fabulous, but my favorite one is the second one. I think it's because blue is my favorite color. :) Your daughter and son-in-law makes such a cute couple!
