Make today .... Amazing! ♥


Hi friends! 
 Remember me?!!
 
It's been a whirlwind around here ~
from last minute trips before school started to
the chaos of school actually starting!
This year, my oldest is in her 2nd year of college,
daughter #2 is a Senior (when did that happen!),
daughter #3 is a Sophomore and
little man is a brand new 4th grader at a brand new school.
We are certainly looking forward to getting used to
the newness of it all and routine to settle  - for all of us ♥
 
I thought I'd show you the card I had made for the Riley and Company's
new challenge - One Layer Cards.
Holy Hanna, that's about the one type of card I don't do!
I love me some layers! ♥
 

So I thunk and thunk and thunk some more ...
and an idea was born when I was watercoloring.
Let the colors run!
As they were still wet, I tilted my watercolor paper
and let the cards run together - like tie-dye!
 
From Girl Scouts to Sunday School and lazy summer days here at home,
tie-die is one of the activities we've done and love so much.
Why not on a card!
 
 

































I used my SU! Watercolor crayons and watercolor paper
and colored it in my VERY favorite color combination :)
I seem to be gravitating to this color combo a lot this summer!

I let the sentiment speak for itself on this one and stamped it
right on the dry paper, peeled off the painters tape from around the edges
and ta-da! 
Hard to believe this card took as long as it did to make -
which I will not admit to, LOL!
Did I mention I love me some layers?! :)
 
Be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the Riley and Company DT
has created!
If you link up your cards to a gallery like SCS,
please use the keyword Riley1714.
 
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
