Color on Color

Good Sunday Morning.   The Lord asked us to take a day of rest.  We traditionally take Sunday as that day, setting it aside for worship and rest.  Boy, do I need the rest today.  After almost three solid weeks of grandchildren at our house (anywhere from 1 to 5 and all under 7years old), I am ready for a rest.  Which reminds me of a cute story if you care to read it:  I took care of 2 grandchildren, ages 5 and 3 for a week and a half.  This past week I took care of one of their cousins.   They came back this past Friday to play with that cousin.
So Saturday morning the 3 year old told her mom, "I want to go back to Grandmas today."
Mom:  "No, we need to give grandma a break."
 The 5 year old chimed in, "Yeah, grandma has been taking care of like a hundred kids!  She needs a break"
3 year old: "No, grandma only had 3 kids yesterday. She only needs a break if she takes card of 5."
Isn't that soooo cute?
Anyway, I am taking a break today !  But yesterday I did have a chance to make a card.

I stamped GKD stamps onto SU Pink Pirouette and then added some color with pencils and some liquid pearls. the sentiment is stamped with Artichoke ink.  The butterfly is Martha Stewart.

I hope you have a restful day.

  1. I think looking after your grandkids supercharged you. This card is stunning in beauty, the colors just jump off the paper. It is clearly the prettiest card I have seen in quite a long time. The sponging on the Butterfly is even above average.
    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful paper crafts with us today at WAW. We appreciate your participation and love seeing your diverse gifts and talents.

    I know where you are coming from. My Grandchildren are older now but when they all arrive it is contained creative chaos. This is their second home but sometimes it can wear you out.
