Over and Under the Sea

Hello! Did we really just go through September... in a flash!
We are still pretty warm here in Southern California !

It's time for the The 12 Kits of Occasions month post! 
is the host for the month and sent this
sweet little kit out right before she had hand surgery.... which 
means she must have been in some pain.
Thank you Kim.

I dipped my background in ink spritzed with water, then added 
shimmer when it dry.

 I love the images and bright and colorful patterned paper 
Kim sent in the kit!

 We have a special guest most of you know and love her work! 
You will have to head on over to the  The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog to see who it is
 and check out the rest of the design team.

Thanks for the visit.
p.s. not sure why but I can't comment on most blogs lately , 
something with my new settings. I am working on it.

Grateful for a Man in a Red Truck

Challenge #25 – Color Inspiration
Hello friends! 
I needed a card to give to my daughter and her husband Tom,
Soon it marks a year since the shooting in Vegas when Tom
was shot three times. I thought this sentiment was simply 
stated and perfect . 
 My heart goes out to the families that lost a loved one, and the  
many that are still suffering . My daughter keeps in touch as they all need each other.

I heat embossed my image with gold powder and watercolored  with the inks below. I decided to fussy cut my image and pop it up 
with foam tape to the back. I love this stamp from 


 At first I didn't think I could use the colors but I ended up liking them and so different from what I normally use.

 I won't go into the long story but some of you know immediately after the shooting a man in a RED PIKCUP gathered as many shooting victims as he could in his truck as he himself was fleeing the shooting. (My heavy heart and prayers are with the families of the six people in  the truck with them that didn't survive, my they rest in peace.)
When I saw this pillow it just seemed happy and of a time most of us love (fall) So I bought it for Nicole and Tom and I searched for one for myself as well. 

Thank you for the visit .
Hope you have a wonderful day

Not sure why this posted early but looks I am posting two cards today.

 Hello! Its time for another Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop
You'll  a chance to win $20 certificate to the store, just 
by leaving a comment. 

 I added Peerless Water color  right on top of  my (Tim Holtz) glass mat then spritzed with water, placed my watercolor paper on top . I did this a few times till I got the color I wanted. When dry ( I used my heat gun) I stamped the image onto the paper and fussy cut it . Then I stamped the same image again and added the cut leaf to the top, with foam underneath. 
I love how the fussy cut look still has the watercolor painted edge.

 I've used this "Maple with Quote" leaf many times most of them end up in a large frame, I love the simple look of it in a large matted frame. Thanks for takin a peek today.

Pop up Scarecrow

Hi friends! Finally posting my card for Make It Monday!
Just got my computer back.

As always I am running low on time this week, 
 this one took me a few tries to create.
My card pops up but wish I added something underneath.
Not crazy about my watercoloring on the jacket but no time 
to make another.

I used my Zig pens to color in the images and blended the ink on the base of my card with daubers. 
So easy to blend now with my glass mat from Tim Holtz . 

I hope you have a great week !
Thanks so much for the visit!
