Water Colouring Player

What an absolutely wonderful day! Started out with a sleep in, then a trip to the grocery store with my boys to pick up a few items for our Easter Family dinner this evening, then off to the park for the rest of the morning, then home for lunch, nap for my little man while mommy played Easter Bunny and daddy got supper started, THEN made this card which I am over the moon thrilled with, then our son had his egg hunt and our family came over for supper and that brings me to present time, writing a blog while my husband settles our son for bed J BUSY but fabulous day!

So for this card I used the Retrosketches Sketch and the Watercolour Challenge from The Paper Players. I had honestly forgotten how much I LOVE water colouring! I have a feeling I will be doing much much more of this in the near future. The water colour paper, StazOn ink and aqua writers make it SOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy and fun J

My Challenge(s):

My Card:

The retiring stamp set list was released this morning from Stampin’ UP! and I was SHOCKED at the number of sets we are letting go but that just means that many more BRAND NEW ones to be had in June!!! So for the next couple of months I will be focusing on retiring stamp sets as one final goodbye.

Thanks for stoppin’ by!
