Warbler and magnolias

Warbler and magnolias

I think this card turned out to be really pretty.  I don’t think the punches that I did show up very well, but that is ok.  The design on this card is Warbler and Magnolias.  When I was water coloring the magnolias I used some victorian velvet to start with a strong base color and then I mix in a bit of picket fences and then finish coloring out the petals.  It gives it a nice orchre effect.

Candy for the birds

Candy for the birds

I guess these birds would like some candy. Honestly, I couldn’t think of anything to put on their little signs, and then I thought well everyone likes Easter candy. Well, at least they are cute. Which is what we say about the kids when they do the exact same thing. Huh, maybe that’s where the idea came from…

I kept putting off a challenge thinking that I had no way of doing it. That was what a lot of the work at the start of the week was about. I forgot a lot. I didn’t use to, but now I do, and because of that I need to work on ways to keep from buying the same thing twice or forgetting I have something I can use. I now make myself write things down, I build a lot of spreadsheets, and my husband constantly hears me say “I need to figure out how to organize this”. On the other hand, it’s nice when I find that I do have something that works!
