Grateful Heart

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Hope all is well with you in your little corner of the stamping world!  I saw a pretty color challenge at Inspire.Create, and I am willing to bet when you see it, you'll be surprised at what came of it!  So first, I'll show you my card; it features an older SU image that I found on ebay, and it is perfect for some seasonal watercoloring:

And here is my challenge prompt:

These colors look very "flowery" to me, but when I thought about putting them together on this scene, they worked into some pretty fall colors!  I just used inks of all the shades with an aquapainter after stamping the image on watercolor paper with Stazon ink:

I framed it with an Avery Elle stitched rectangle frame, and then stamped a sentiment from Right at Home below it:

That's pretty good advice by which to start one's day, any time of the year, don't you think?!  And since my image was watercolored, I am also entering it in the Paperminutes challenge of watercolors!  Thanks for popping in today!

SO.....on Wednesday afternoon, Cassidy caught her thumb in the car door!  Youch!  It didn't break the skin (or even get a bruise that I could see), but Mommy gave her some Tylenol and took her to the ER for some x-rays anyway:

Dana said the doctor made her laugh!  And blessedly, she only had a sprain, so no cast, just a splint!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

OUCH! That must have hurt terribly. When something happens to our digits, it seems almost like the end of the world! Good doctor, great patient. Your watercoloring is superb! That's a great fall card. Best wishes for winning at the challenge.

Perfect colors for that gorgeous fall scene! Your coloring is outstanding, as usual and I love the sentiment! Poor, Cassidy, just reading that made me cringe!

Cheryl said...

Love your Card! Great job on the coloring!
On another note...sorry and blessings to Cassidy. Mend Well, quick!
When I was about 12 my little finger got caught in a car Cassidy, no breaks, just a sprain, yes and a splint for a couple of days!

Beautiful fall scene and terrific water coloring! So glad Miss C didn’t break anything but I bet it hurt!

So glad Cassidy's thumb wasn't any worse. She looks like she had fun at the ER. :)
Love your pretty card and that lovely sentiment.
