Hello, friends! Welcome to October and welcome to our monthly FOU Blog Hop!
I am joyfully welcoming October in hopes it ushers in much cooler temps here in Houston Texas. Whew, I am sooo ready!
Last October I created Christmas gift tags using Festive Wreath by Graciellie Designs. I loved them so much I decided to recreate them!
This blue in the Karin (Sapphire Blue) markers is my absolute favorite blue!
Karin BrushMarkers work so well on Fabriano Hot Press paper!
Oh hey, happy World Card Making Day! It is funny today is WCMD, but our cue is "anything but a card"! We loooove making cards, but sometimes it is good to challenge ourselves creatively!
It is fun to look back at last years creations and see how much I have grown as a watercolorist! If you would like to see the first set of these ornaments I made last year using this same set visit here!
I hope you’ll join our cue and create "Anything But a Card"! Please, tag me if you do. I’d love to see it!
My hope is that you read through the entire blog. Makes my heart so happy thinking you do!
Thanks for spending time with me today!
It brings me so much joy sharing my thoughts and creations with all of you!
Be blessed, friends!
