Happy Little Stampers Watercolor Challenge – April 2017 – Rainbow

Hello! I’m very excited to be here with you for our second HLS Watercolor Challenge.

Our Guest Designer is the lovely and talented, Julie Beech. Make sure you stop over and say ‘hi”!

As always at Happy Little Stampers’ challenges……..we have a prize for you!

Here’s my card:

I did some die-cutting with the HLS Butterfly Dies.

I used the butterflies to mask off the white panel and then watercolored a rainbow à la the Happy Little Stampers’ header image.Happy Little Stampers

Butterflies – 3 x 3

Hi! I’m here with 3, no 4, cards to share with you today.

IMG_8000edited

I made this with Gelatos, a splattering of Smooch Spritz, hand painted Popsicle sticks on regular heavyweight white card stock. I stamped the sentiment in gray.

I did not know this until today, but apparently butterfly ice creams are a real thing!

In 2008 the brand launched double-stick Nestlé Eskimo Butterfly and Nestlé Eskimo Night Butterfly, which can be divided into two sticks with two flavors to enjoy.
Who knew?!

Many of you ask about the little house in my yard. Here’s a view of the Wine Hut, as we call it, from my patio. It was moved here during the 1950’s from a nearby vineyard.  It was recently refurbished.IMG_8036edited

My 2nd card:IMG_8013edited

I also made this with Gelatos, a splattering of Smooch Spritz and stamped the sentiment in gray on mixed media paper.

Soft Watercolor Butterflies

Today I have another butterfly card to share with you. I’m also going to play this over at CASology’s Week 157: Wings.IMG_9008editedI actually made this card  quite a while ago, but have not played it anywhere. I hadn’t added a sentiment until today. The sentiment is from PTI’s Scripted stamp set. This card reminds me of a bunch of watercolor butterfly cards that I made some months ago when I was on one of my butterfly kicks. Here’s one of the many!

IMG_9004edited     I’m also going to play this over at Crafting with Dragonflies: Card with Butterfly ( or two, three or more) and

  Suzy Bee’s 1 August challenge 91: anything goes with a twist … wings or feathers.

Honeybee seems to be a bit obsessed with butterflies! Since there are so many butterfly cards fluttering around here I thought that it might be fun to collect them all in one place! So, I decided to dedicate a page on this blog to all of the butterfly cards I’ve made. A conservatory of sorts!

If you’d like to, please take a look under “Honeybee loves Butterflies” at the top or click here.  I’m sure more butterflies will be landing there soon, so check back if you want to see more. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Grateful – Watercolor Butterflies

Today I have another card on black stock to share with you.

IMG_2973edited

This design for this card was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #117

and Kim’s card for

Time Out Challenge#28

I used some more of my smooshed water color paper. Wow! This stuff is just not running out!

IMG_2975edited IMG_2980edited

I’m also playing this over at LIM’S Colour Challenge Week 218: Predominantly Black.

IMG_3001edited

Today I’m grateful for many things. Number 1 is Jesus who is my hope. Next is my best friend, my husband, who has been taking me to a multitude of doctors appointments. Also for an appointment today with a normal ultrasound of my thyroid. My eldest daughter who has taken over cooking for me since I have not been well. There are so many other things too.

IMG_3005edited

Grateful=Thankful & reminds me of a Bible verse.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Phil 4:6-7
