Good Morning

This is such a beautiful technique. Washed Watercolors. The green and yellow, though you can't really see it ,was spread on using iridescent medium. It gave it a really shimmery look.
The technique is quite simple using watercolor paper and watercolor paints. Take your watercolor paper spritz it with water, then with a paintbrush add watercolor paints....spritz again and lift paper so that the colors will run. Reminds me a little of water color roll but comes out more vibrant. This is a technique from Technique Junkies as you know one of my favorite web sites.
All flowers are from Squigglefly Digital Stamps and are part of their flower set...I love flowers so of course I had to have it! The Butterfly is from Firecracker Designs by Pamela...and is also part of a set called Let Your Soul Fly. This was part of the main image so I used Photoshop 7 to capture it.
Wishing you all a happy weekend...may God bless you each and everyday!

Flowers for my Friends

Good Saturday Morning,
I thought this card was appropriate for this week except I got up this morning and it is freezing again. No Rain today though. The past week was absolutely like Spring again and I have been busy running around and enjoying it. I have to apologize to Belinda for not posting this on Monday...I have had some health issues and completely forgot to post. All is well in Judyland and I am blessed with so many friends and family. I especially want to thank my sons John and Jeff and my husband Milt for their never ending patience with me. For my friends this basket of flowers are for you and Happy Spring all. God is so good. This bunny is so cute with his huge eyes, you can almost see the smile on his face. This is from Belinda's Digital set Hop into Spring. You can get to her web site by clicking on the title. This was colored with copic markers and though the flowers look blue they are a pretty shade of purple.

Thanks for stopping by and as always I appreciate you all so much God has blessed me abundantly with many wonderful people in my life.

Firecracker Designs by Pamela

Here is a card I did using one of Firecracker Designs by Pamela new digital images. I also used FCD's layout. The butterflies on the side are taken from the digital design using Photoshop 7. The background is another Watercolor roll Technique found in the Technique Junkies Newsletter. Papers are from my stash.

Have a great weekend everyone and I will be working on some cards this weekend. Again Happy Easter to all my Christian friends and Happy Passover to all my Jewish friends. May God bless each and everyone of you!

Prayers Needed

Hi everyone,

This is just another written post. The past few weeks have been a roller coaster ride for me. Some personal things have kept me preoccupied and the outcome doesn't look as bright as I had hoped. But God has a reason for everything in our lives and I know no matter what the outcome His will ...will be done.

My reason for this is I have not paid enough attention to thing here in Rhode Island. Yesterday we had major flooding. After several days of rain and then having another 9 inches dumped on us in one day...many of the rivers just couldn't contain all the water. Many people lost there homes. Flooding up to the second floors. Malls were totally submerged as were a lot of the little mom and pop stores. Warwick mall (one of our larger ones) the whole first floors were under water. Cars in the parking lot were completely under water. Roads everywhere had to be closed and one community alone lost four bridges. Waste water treatment plants were under water and pumping was failing which is a health concern. Some roads are still closed as of today.

I'm asking all my Christian sisters and brothers to please say a prayer for Rhode Island and it residents. We have many people out of work here and this I'm sure is just one more blow to them.

Thanks for the prayers. I always know I can count on you all.

Start looking for some more cards next week...Technique Junkie just came out with a new newsletter with many techniques and my creativity is just waiting for me to release creativity here I come..
