Missing a wee grandson...

Well, my gardens beckon. I have perennials to divide, weeding to do, and new plants from friends' gardens to plant...and here I sit, making cards! (lol) This one is for my little grandson Avery, who recently spent a month with me. (When we chat on the phone, I always end my conversation with "I misses your kisses," hence the computer generated text I used). I created the background for the tag by spraying watercolour paper with Ecoline Watercolour Inks, available online at Quietfire Design here in Canada.

I was able to incorporate several challenges today, which is always such fun! This cute cat and fish image came from the So Artful Challenge. I used purple and green to meet the Wednesday Stamper challenge; I used my new sequin waste stamp from Inka Stamps to meet the Chrisma Cardz Craft challenge (circles and dots); I used three Swarovski crystals to meet the "bit o' bling" Cute Card Thursday challenge; I used the Judikins postage stamp frame for the One Powerful Hour challenge; and finally, I fashioned a tag for the card to meet Theme Thursday's challenge.


Here's my treasured, impish fella:



Thanks for stopping by. I wish you all a delightful day!
