A Bright Secret Garden

A Bright Secret GardenIt is fun using bright colors in the middle of winter.  I’ve used a lot of yellow on this card, and I don’t usually use this color very much, so it seems really bright to me.

I’ve been wanting to watercolor lately, so  I thought this would be a fun stamp set with which to play.  This is a great stamp set, not only because it has matching framelits, but because you can watercolor with many of the stamps or you can just stamp on colored or patterned paper.  Very versatile!

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Secret Garden Sneak Peek

Secret Garden

I am always a sucker for floral stamps.  When I saw the new floral set, Secret Garden, in the Spring catalog, and that it had matching framelits, I knew I had to have the bundle.  The coordinating framelits dies are such time savers — I love them!

Have a great Monday!  Do you have big plans for New Years Eve?  We’ll be hanging out here at home with three children who will all be asleep well before midnight rolls around.  Sounds like a fun night to me!
