What's brewing?

Hiya!  We had the neighbor hood kids last night for their trick or treat adventure. About 100 of the cute little ghouls. I passed out 4 bowls of candy. Whew!

This week at AAA Cards- there's something new. AAA Cards is going to run 2 week games during November and December. This game, #27 PLAY with Watercolors is running from November 2nd to the 15th. Leaving time to make Christmas cards and holiday family time.

I finally got to use my October '14 Simon Says Card Kit stamps. I haven't made a free form watercolor card in a while too. So it was a fun release making this background. It's distress stains in colors Festive Berries & Seedless Preserves. An easy card and pretty CAS. My inks are tuxedo black from Memento and grey from Color Box. Stella glitter pen in clear on the coffee cup wraps it up nicely.

My sister, Kemi, just re-started her craft blog Kemishdo. Wow, it's great to see her get back into crafting! She and I own a website called Kids4Crafts too. We are REALLY guilty of not working on it for a while. It's a shame too, that blog is often visited for such quiet authorship. She's doing some crafts around the Baltimore Ravens and selling nicely on etsy. I'm going to introduce her to craft challenges and linky parties. She's a newbie on that stuff.

So glad you made time to drop by and visit. Drop off a leisurely made watercolor card  at AAA Cards too!

  1. The colors just "bloom"! Beautiful and bright. Love the simplicity and CAS-ness.

  2. Very nice "game with colors"... they stay so vivid. I like also your sentiment.

  3. Love your free form background and they're so my colours too! Think I need to loosen up and go with the flow of water colours a bit more.

  4. Awesome love the colors and the sentiment is the best. Cheers! Thanks for entering our Crazy Egg challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks.
