CCEE1734 ~ Watercolors

Hi there, friends!

 Has anyone seen a giraffe around?
It's been such a loooooooong week!
School started this week and I am back on the road,
driving to and fro and fro and to ~ whew!

So I'm back to crafting on the road - LOL!
I take a little container with me filled with stamped images,
and even brought the mini MISTI along to stamp in the car pool lane - ha!
Crafters gotta do what crafters gotta do =)

This week, I have a two-fer card.
For the CCEE Stampers challenge #1734, Anne is our hostess
 and she gave us a theme this week of:  Watercoloring!
Now I LOVE that!

AND, for the August Crafters of Faith theme, our sweet hostess Lynn
gave us this theme and scripture to make a card: 

August ~ Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows ~ James 1:17 This month
let's celebrate life's simple pleasures which bless our days
with joy and beauty and meaning.

                  So I combined the two .... simple pleasures + watercoloring ♥
My card is super CAS,
and might look familiar, 
because it's from the same Sweet Escapes set from Paper Smooches
as you saw last week, different stamp, different technique :)
I used my Kuretake watercolors to create this card,
3d foam to pop up the clouds and focal image.

I'll enter this to the Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge!
They also have a blog hop going on right now - 
you can see the DT inspiration and fun cards here!
Whoop whoop!

You can see what all the DT members made 
with the watercolor theme here on the blog :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
