Bouquet of Well Wishes!

Have you ever started a card and it just go so off your original track you don't know what to do with it??? This happened to two cards I had been working on. Typically I just adore watercoloring. I believe my sinus ouchie has affected my watercoloring. I do like the end result and it's for a dear friend and downline of mine who is under the weather. I hope this can cheer her up! I have always loved this set In Full Bloom. I hate to admit it really had a lot of dust on it. I think I wore this set out and just tucked it away from over use. It's a great set to watercolor. Here are the itsy bitsy details:
Stamps: In Full Bloom, Sincere Salutations
CS: Cool Caribbean, Old Olive, Marigold Morning, Basic Black
Ink: Stazon Black
Access: Slit punch, brad, ribbon, Watercolor Crayons, Aqua Painter, Stickles

Other News:

I thought I was adjusting to the altitude pretty well until this past week. My sinuses have been acting up pretty terrible. I think due to the extreme dryness in this area. I am so use to the humidity and without it here my sinus cavity is dry as a bone. Which causes real pain. I've been drinking water like crazy and actually think that is helping things. Time to add humidity back into the house. I think I will hook one up in my room and office to see if it helps.

Now if you are a demonstrator coming to Denver in July... Be Aware! Two things you will need in the area: 1. Lots and lots and lots of WATER! 2. Body Butter. If you don't dip your body in the stuff every two hours you will become a LIZARD! Promise. I would take a picture of my skin, but I am afraid you would never visit my blog again. LOL!!! I can't get over how DRY it is here. Otherwise, it is quite beautiful here. :)

Okay, one last card to show you. This is the other card I tried watercoloring and just couldn't get it right. Oh well, who cares. It was relaxing while the aqua painter was stroking the paper... Right???

Another set I love to watercolor. So glad I have this set. This set is a hostess level 2 set, Both Way Blossoms. As always, I hope you enjoy and I hope your weekend is spectacular.

Have you tried some Simply Saline? It's just a saline spray for your nose... no meds or anything. It always helps me with my dry sinuses. Hope you feel better!
