Friendship Blooms

 I've been on a card making kick! This is an image I got from PIF. It was in the SU mini catalog and I really liked it but wasn't sure I needed to own the set! I watercolored this by using my SU markers and coloring onto the case of a SU set. You then use you aqua pen to pick up the color and color your image. It's one of my fave techniques. And I think I'm getting pretty good at it! This image however was VERY hard to color! It was hard to tell what was leaves and what was flowers. I went with a purple flower - think pansies - the centers are yellow - very small hard to see. I then matted the image twice and used a double matte for the card base. I stamped the sentiment from PTI Green Thumb in Elegant Eggplant and added some white buttons with some DMC floss that I attempted to color with my SU markers - not nearly as easy as ribbon or pretties let me tell you! But it worked in a pinch! I hope these are posting as we are actually on our mini vacation visiting Andrew's parents right now!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
