Hello Sunshine – a2z Scrapbooking December Challenge


Hello Bloggers,

I hope you all did not get to wet this weekend from all the rain.  How many of you are ready for Christmas?  I’m not, I have gotten a few gifts, but still need to buy a few more.  I also have to finish decorating the house.  We all have less than three weeks before Christmas.  

This months challenge with a2zScrapbooking is Watercolor!  Doesn’t that sound like fun.  I was wishing for sunshine this weekend, so I made a card with a flower.  I’m not rushing life ahead of us, but whew I wish the sun would just shine for a few hours.  It seems like forever, since the sun has been out. The flower is from the Hello Sunshine Daisy set.  This set is very nice because it has four sentiments in the set and four different flowers with so many different ways to use them. This set is a must have!  For this card, I first used a few inks and rubbed them on my craft sheet, then I sprayed the mat with water and rubbed my watercolor paper on the mat.  Love how my background came out.  For the flower I dabbed the ink on the stamp, stamped off and added a little water and stamped on the paper I watercolored.  If you would like this set, you can get 15% off, just use Donna15 when you check out.
