Hello

Good Morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I had Kinley this weekend. I set up her new pool for Grandmas house as it was 106. She wasn't sure at first, but loved it in the end :-) Destiny (her mom ) started her in swim lessons, which I think, the earlier the better, so their not afraid of it.
 
 
 I got some Wplus9 goodies in the mail last week and had some time yesterday to play some more. I had so much fun watercoloring in the images. I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. What I love about these is the intense color you get from them compared to my cheap ones. The stamp set is called Doodle Buds, such a fun stamp set!


 
 
 
Have a great day!! Hugs, Char

Oh, my gracious! What a doll baby! I haven't had Kaden in the pool yet this year. It just keeps raining... and raining... and raining... and... I'll stop now. Unfortunately, the rain means humidity, and it's terrible. Your card is stunning, girl! Love the bold, rich color, and those blooms are delish!

WOW is this ever a pretty card!! That is a fun floral set and you made it shine Char. Kinley's pool is just too cute, but it doesn't compare to her!! At 106 I'll bet you all wanted to jump in there with her!!

Now that is one adorable granddaughter, Char! 106 is just too hot unless I'm in Shasta Lake! Your card is artistic & beautiful--one of my favorites!

Hi Char. Love the pictures of your sweet little one. Gosh 106 is worse than our SC 100! Good for Kinley that she can cool off in the pool. Love the new photo of you. Also love the images...Wplus9 has some great stuff. Your Gansai colors are brilliantly beautiful. I got the set, but so far it's a NBUS. Just not enough time - but I'm loving what I'm seeing done with these pretty colors. Great use of the w/colors AND the lovely Wplus9 set. Stay cool. TFS & Hugs

This card is so SWEET! LOVE the blooms and your WC BG! And your grandbaby just steals the show! We had Kevin in swimming lessons at 11 months and have some FAB photos of him underwater- like Nirvana! Do you remember that album cover or are you too young?

Beautiful card and super cute picture of your daughter.

That is the cutest little pool! Boy they sure have changed since I've had little ones. (My kids are in their twenties, but Sadly, no grandkids yet.)
I love this card. You've done a wonderful job with the water colors. I love them too. Now I won't use any other brand.
Thanks for the inspiration, Char. Enjoy that grandbaby!
