Birthday Wishes

I got down to making a card last night.  It did not quite turn out the way I wanted.  I think I am still finding my feet with choosing colours.  I attempted some water colouring on water colour paper.   For some reason I always feel that it's not as nice as I had anticipated.  Nevertheless, there are still some elements that I do like.

The Bird stamp is by Penny Black and the sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.  Pretty sure the paper is Basic Grey.

I'm all alone this evening.  My daughter was invited to a sleepover and hubby only gets home tomorrow.  I know a lot of you are saying "go and craft girl", and I know, it's the perfect opportunity, but I really don't like to craft alone.  I love having a few special ladies around to share the moments.  Being new in town I am still trying to find where those ladies are!!!!

Have a blessed day!

Lovely card Brenda! I struggle with watercoloring, I don't like the lack control haha! Enjoy your evening alone. Snuggle up with a good book or movie!

Great colouring and love the combination of purple and orange, Brenda!

I remembered you had a hard time when you were in Houston too but in no time, you found your crafty friends and even next door! You are so lucky! I am sure they will appear soon! Take care!
